3 Incredible Money-Saving Tips from a Flight Attendant. – I agree with these tips. Flying first thing in the morning or the last flight at night is often cheaper than mid-day because nobody wants to book those flights. I usually book them because they are cheaper, but then regret my decision when it comes to waking up super early. On the plus side, I have the whole day to explore instead of arriving, then heading straight to the hotel to go to sleep, which wastes a full day of vacation.
New Flight Tracking Features You May Not Know! – I’m not a planespotting type of guy, but it does help to track your plane’s arrival to know whether or not it is arriving on time. If it is going to be delayed, then you don’t have to worry about rushing through security or leaving the lounge before you need to.
Disturbing: Flight Attendant Calls Passenger After Flight, Curses Her Out. – I understand how babies can be annoying. We’ve flown with two of them over the years. We’re their parents and they annoy us sometimes. HAHA! And stinky diapers can certainly make anyone cranky… especially the baby. But the passenger did the right thing by disposing of the diaper properly in a scented bag (those things work remarkably well) and then putting it in the trash. At least she didn’t try to flush it as some people do. For the flight attendant to call her after the flight (with or without the cursing) for any reason is completely unacceptable and should be grounds for suspension or termination.
Oh, Crap: 17 Million Gallons of Sewage Spilled Near LAX. – Yikes! Nothing like untreated sewage spilling out into the ocean and onto the beaches to ruin a vacation. If you’re flying into Southern California, consider other airports than (and nicer beaches further away from) LAX. I have an upcoming trip and we’re flying into Long Beach. The small airport is much easier to get in and out of just like Burbank, Ontario, or Orange County’s airports are.
So What Exactly Is a High Cost Airport Charge, Anyway?!? – Why do so many businesses think that they can slip in random charges and fees without us noticing? And the response from Frontier is completely bogus. By that logic, if you fly into or out of an airport whose costs are significantly lower than other airports that they operate out of, then we should be receiving a discount on our flight, right? Sadly, I don’t see that happening.
