Usually if you’re traveling with your partner you travel together wherever you go, right? From airplane seats to sharing a ride at your destination, you should always be together. But this doesn’t seem to be the case with some couples. Let me introduce you to three married couples who travel together, but don’t sit together. The husbands enjoy their luxurious seat in business or first class, while their wives and children sit in the uncomfortable seats in economy class.
You probably are now a bit more familiar with Brexit and what it entails for the UK, but did you notice how the financial markets were hit? In 24 hours of the vote, British Airways stock dropped 30 percent! There were also other stocks that were affected, including hotels, tour agencies and other airlines.
Business class continues to be reinvented, redefined, and pushed towards extraordinary—with some designs outshining others. The one we’re referring to is the new Space X business class seat, designed by Jamco and Satoshi Wada, a Japanese designer. The two have created a conceptual business class seat called ‘Space X’ that can be converted into a lounge, a meeting room, a dining room and a double bed. Nope, this is definitely not an apartment.
Perfect for couples traveling together, the Space X business class seat is designed to be a flexible and unique space where you can work, eat, sleep and relax. So you can have a business meeting and take a power nap at the same time!
Without flight attendants our flights would be chaotic. No one would serve us drinks or food, make up our beds (in first and business class cabins), assist us in times of need, or help keep us stay organized and safe in an event of an accident. But not all flight attendants are the same. Sometimes, we get the ones who really end up behaving badly, causing delays. We’re all human, and they are just as vulnerable to bad days like us.
However, bad behavior doesn’t go unnoticed! Here are some stories of flight attendants behaving badly. Some of these may even shock you.
I’m sure many of you reading this already have heard of Global Entry and TSA PreCheck, some of you may already have enrolled in one or both of the programs. But for those of you who are still shopping around and need a little bit more information, then you’ve come to the right place.
Compiled below is a list of what you should know about each program, why you need them, the application process and how they work.
As we’re slowly approaching fall, some of you may be planning out your next destination for this year’s vacation. Since average of 19 percent of Americans will be traveling abroad this summer, and only about 10.9 percent will travel abroad during the fall, you won’t have to worry too much about tourists overcrowding cities if you travel in the fall.
With that said, we’ve compiled a list of top fall destinations for this year that we hope will inspire your vacation planning in 2016.
Flight attendants love their job. They get to travel the world for free, meet new people on a regular basis, and stay busy and entertained as they hop from one plane onto the next. And although they enjoy what they do as professional women and men that they are, it’s hard for them to speak negatively about their jobs. But we still want to get the dirt! So we searched high and low and put together a list of airline secrets you may have not been aware about, told by pilots and flight attendants. Even a few of them surprised us!
We’re suckers for good food. Who isn’t? The moment a meal comes out from the kitchen, you can almost taste it on your tongue. At that moment you realize you don’t regret ordering the Boston Lobster Thermidor that has just been paired with a glass of Dom Pérignon. What restaurant did you just step in to? It’s not a restaurant, it’s an airline.
It should be no surprise that the best airlines in the world also have one of the best airline cuisines. Among our favorite are Singapore Airlines, Turkish Airlines, and Cathay Pacific.
Are we making you hungry yet? Just wait until you hear what each of these airlines offer for their first and business class passengers—your stomach will definitely start grumbling.
We would like to introduce you to the North Star on United Airlines. Ok, maybe not THE North Star (because that’s quite impossible), but United airlines will debut its new business class seats called Polaris later this year on the B777-300ERs.
Have you ever taken a walk down memory lane and watched those old airline commercials that just make you think “what year was this”? If you haven’t, now you can.
These videos are a special part of aviation history. It’s like stepping into a time machine, especially when we see the first commercials advertising flights on the twin engine Curtiss Condor airplanes. Fast froward to the DC-10’s that once had a lounge in coach (yes, coach!), and some more recognizable ones that promise to get you to Mars by tomorrow (ok, maybe not Mars yet, but maybe soon?).
