May 13, 2010 | Posted in: Passengers,Security | 10 comments

airport security body scanners controversy

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) says 300+ body scanners are on the way to an airport near you, so – get used to it.

Or get used to a patdown – your choice when it comes to going through these body imaging machines (you may remember, I went through an airport body scan machine and, no complaints here).

Meanwhile, the controversy continues – including an ugly episode of alleged workplace violence involving TSA employees; check it out in, “Security Update: More TSA Body Scan Machines Coming to an Airport Near You”.

Cheap airfare to Europe is so last year. Literally! It was cheap then, but as shoppers are discovering, travel to Europe this summer is much higher.

But you’re going anyway. Should you buy your tickets now – or wait?

That is the question I explore – and answer – due to overwhelming demand from readers. Check it out – “Summer Airfare to Europe – Buy Now or Wait?”

I think it will answer all your questions (but if not, leave a comment).

Is Your Bag Too Fat? Careful: Overweight Bag Fees are Killers

May 11, 2010 | Posted in: Airline News | 4 comments

bag fees overweight

You know all about the “regular” checked-bag fees, which are bad enough (and if you’re not familiar with them, check out our Domestic Bag Fee Chart before you get on a plane).

But the really expensive fees are reserved for these categories: overweight and oversize bags.

Perhaps you are thinking, well how bad could it be? Depending on size and heft of the bag, very bad indeed. Try, $300 worth of bad.

Want more? Take a look at “Checked Bag Fees – Cheap Compared to Airlines Oversize, Overweight Bag Fees”.

And in the meantime, please – no matter where you travel, pack sparingly.

Flight Attendant Sounds Off: Carryon Bags and Bad Attitudes

flight attendant carryon bags passengers

Ever wonder what that flight attendant on your plane is thinking?

Well, wonder no more. Or maybe I should say, now we know what one flight attendant is thinking – and he has a lot to say about negativity on the part of passengers and crew, and why the job just isn’t much fun anymore.

Oh, yes – the flight attendant also mentions passengers who simply dump their carryon bags at his feet. 

Check out the article, called “An Airline Flight Attendant Sounds Off on Bags, Bad Attitudes and Today’s Flying Experience” – it’s a pretty good read if I do say so myself.

May 7, 2010 | Posted in: Airline News,Passengers | 4 comments

KEY WORDS

Ever been on a plane with a really “bad passenger”?

I’m talking about the kind that gets your flight diverted – like the passenger who thought he was an alien and want to fly the plane (make that, spaceship)?

Or maybe you’ve sat in the gate area as two female passengers attempted to take a corpse on a plane.

I think you’re starting to get the idea why I ask, “Should Airline Passengers Undergo IQ Tests before Flying?”

Guns in the Airport: I Don’t Like It. How About You?

May 6, 2010 | Posted in: Security,Travel Safety,Travel Tips | 21 comments

guns in the airport i don't like it how about you

Did you hear what the Georgia legislature did?

They voted to allow people – with properly licensed guns – to bring them into that state’s airports.

The non-secure areas of airports, that is, which would include terminals, baggage claim, parking lots and the like.

I don’t like it. See where I’m coming from in “Guns at the Airport: Worst Idea Ever?” and tell me if you agree – or, disagree.
