The Morning Shave
16 Incredible Suspension Bridges Around the World. – Suspension bridges offer a bit of a thrill from the perceived danger of the bridge and incredible views of the surrounding areas. Although I’ve never been to any of these bridges, I’ve been to many during my travels within the U.S. and have enjoyed the fun. Have you been to any of these?
How to Do Your Global Entry Interview on Arrival – No Appointment Necessary. – We’re trying to renew my daughter’s Global Entry membership and are waiting on her conditional approval so we can schedule her appointment. We have trips planned for Cabo, Aruba, and Cancun for this year, so we’re hoping that we can get conditional approval quickly. If so, we can do her Global Entry Interview on Arrival at the Phoenix airport. If you haven’t signed up for it yet, here are the credit cards where you can get Global Entry for free.
Flight Attendants Union Head Pushing For Federal Ban On Inflight Alcohol. – I understand that some people are belligerent and act foolish while drinking. From what I’ve read, most of the time it is people getting drunk at airport bars rather than getting drunk on the plane. Flight attendants can always deny service to passengers if they feel that the passenger is drunk. Eliminating inflight alcohol for the rest of us doesn’t really solve the problem.
U.S. and U.K. Will Announce Plan to Open Borders on Thursday. – I’m hopeful that travel between our two countries will open soon. I have a flight on the new JetBlue MINT service from JFK and several friends also have plans this fall.
Hawaii wants you to stop using U-Hauls as rental cars. – It was a quirky solution to an expensive problem, but it seems that it has gotten out of hand. While we’re all enjoying our vacation time (and saving money) in a rental U-Haul, we can’t forget that people actually live in Hawaii and need U-Haul trucks to conduct business and move their belongings. Hopefully, the rental car companies will help to resolve the situation so that everyone can be happy.
