How to Properly Pack a Bottle of Wine or Liquor in Your Suitcase.

If you like to sample wines while traveling, you may fall in love with a bottle and want to take some home. But how do you do it since you can’t take liquids on your carry-on? The obvious choice is to pack your suitcase properly and check your bag. You can also ask the winery if they ship bottles if you’re afraid the bottle may break in transit.

Frankly, I’m glad that the fines and penalties are increasing for people who are so careless.

We Asked Flight Attendants: Should Passengers Tip Cabin Crew?

Tipping is getting out of control. Suddenly, everyone who does their job expects a tip. I would rather pay higher prices for goods & services and have employers pay their employees properly. That way we can adopt other countries’ approach of tipping only for extraordinary service… not as a way to make up for employers underpaying their employees and disguising the true cost of their product or service.
