10 Free Things You Can Get at Airports. – Normally, everything costs more at the airport because they know you’re a captive audience. Add in the TSA 3-1-1 restrictions on liquids, and the prices can be even worse. This article shares that there are actually some things that you can still get for free at the airport while waiting for your flight.
Korean Air Warns That Coronavirus Could Put It Out of Business. – Airlines have always been a precarious business. When fear strikes a country and a way of life (aka travel), it can have disastrous consequences. Many of us frequent flyers have experienced flying with Korean Air. It would be such a shame if the airline went out of business due to the coronavirus.
Real ID Documents Can Now Be Submitted Online. – This is great news to speed the process along. Whether you’re busy at work or busy running your household, nobody wants to have to wait in line to get their Real ID. In Tennessee, I’ve heard that lines can take hours to get through, which is why I’ve hesitated to apply for my new ID. With this announcement, you’ll still have to show up, but at least you can submit your information ahead of time, which should (theoretically) speed up the process.
US Government warns public against going on cruise ships due to Coronavirus. – I haven’t been on a cruise in more than a decade, but have been interested in checking them out lately. However, those plans will have to wait a while now that the government is recommending against taking a cruise. Those cruise deals may seem tempting, but please resist if you, or someone close to you, are elderly or in bad health. You don’t want a little fun to end up in a tragedy.
Airlines are burning thousands of gallons of fuel flying empty ‘ghost’ planes so they can keep their flight slots during the coronavirus outbreak. – Now, this is absolutely silly. I understand rules like this in normal times, but to have airlines wasting fuel by flying empty planes is dumb. There has to be some common sense injected into the situation.
