Inside Flightradar24, the website that tracks every plane in the sky. – This is one of the best websites available to track the status of your flight. It’s pretty incredible how they gather the data and make it easy for novice planespotters to follow along.

Cancun ends entry form requirement for US visitors. – One of the downsides of visiting Mexico is filling out an entry form (that nobody looks at) and keeping a small slip of paper until you leave. If you lose the paper, you’re hit with a fine and a possible departure delay. It’s a good move to eliminate this bureaucratic hassle to speed up immigration and get rid of countless pieces of paper.

This Summer Was a Chaotic Mess at Airports. Holiday Travel Will Be No Better. – If you thought summer travel was bad, just wait until this winter. First off, the airlines won’t suddenly be able to fill all of the vacant positions for pilots, flight attendants, and other crucial staff. And, when you add winter storms into the mix, it is a recipe for disaster. When you plan your holiday trips, add some extra cushion to your reservations to ensure that your plans are not interrupted.

A look inside Mexico’s first all-inclusive Marriott resort. – Hilton and Hyatt have plenty of all-inclusive resort options in Mexico. Until now, Marriott didn’t have much to offer. With its partnership with Delta (not the airline), it has a beautiful resort located 30 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. And rooms aren’t expensive with rates around $200 or 42,400 points per night. And kids stay free until December 20, 2022!

ExpressJet goes bankrupt; Aha! ceases operations. – The airline was based in Reno and serviced nine regional airports. With its bankruptcy, the airline is not offering any refunds and won’t assist with alternative travel accommodations. If you need to get a refund, contact your credit card company.
