Seats…now this just pisses me off

Yep, you have to sit next to them!

Airlines, you’re beginning to push it a little too far. Their never ending quest for revenue from add-on fees is now making it even harder for families or friends to sit together when they fly. Or, at least to do so without paying a fee. And that’s just plane ridiculous. It’s true, it’s all for money. Airlines are reserving a growing number of window and aisle seats for passengers willing to pay extra. At the peak of the summer travel season, if you don’t, it might be nearly impossible to … More…

Got Kids? Forget Early Boarding on United

United drops early boarding for children

Major bummer….As families prepare for air travel this coming Memorial Day weekend, United Airlines won’t be offering early boarding to families in coach with small children. Yep joining a handful of other carriers, United made the policy shift in late April and kept it on the download. It’s a growing trend.

panama is hot

Panama…. It’s been climbing steadily and now tops lists of hot destinations for 2012 and but does it live up to the hype? Let’s see…. Meet your guide, Jim.  First stop a rickety wooden platform above gentle waves, behind a shack of a cafe, beers in hand. Joe, the guitar man, wearing a palm tree-patterned shirt, strums calypso rhythms, the kind introduced to these islands by the African-Caribbean workers brought in by the banana plantation companies. Caribbean calypso culture may not be what you might expect to find in Panama, … More…

Where, oh where, can I redeem my miles?

oh what fun!

Just about everyone I know is out there trying to redeem their miles. We work all year long, all we want is to get what we deserve after all those miles logged in. And it’s a buzz-kill. Most airlines make getting those seats pretty hard, especially if you’re traveling in August and especially if you’re going somewhere popular- say Italy. France. England. IdeaWorks did a survey  looking for a pair of seats on each airline’s 10 busiest long routes and 10 busiest short routes on 14 different round-trip dates between … More…
