Airline launches £99 flights to America and Canada – here’s how to nab them

The trips will take off from London Stanstead and reach New… Read Article →

What people hate more about flying than crying babies

IT TURNS out that there is something people hate even more than being sat next to a crying baby on a plane. Many might assume that sitting next to a screaming baby would be the most hated part of flying for most travellers — but it turns out there some things that trump even an on-flight tantrum. New research conducted by finder.com.au found that the number one pet hate of Australian flyers… Read Article →

Drunks on aircraft is just plan crazy

I am sad to say this, but, in my opinion, we are heading for a major mid-air disaster due to the number of violent drunks on aeroplanes. I think we have been really lucky so far, but it is just a matter of time. It’s getting out of control and they are a disgrace. Once they get on that plane, they are a ticking time bomb and it seems to… Read Article →

Why flight attendants prefer working in economy to first class

A dark review for United’s Boeing 787

I’ve been wanting to fly on the Boeing 787 “Dreamliner” ever since I missed a chance to go on an inaugural junket aboard one before Boeing began delivery to the airlines. Then I finally got my chance, three days ago, aboard United Flight 935 from London to Los Angeles. Some context: United is my default airline by virtue of having flown 1.5 million miles with them, which has earned me some status. Specifically, I… Read Article →

BOEING PLANES COULD FIRE LASERS FROM THEIR NOSES TO SPOT TURBULENCE

EARLY NEXT YEAR, a Boeing 777 will take off from the company’s airfield near Seattle with a laser shooting out of its nose. It may sound like a novel (and grisly) way to avoid bird strikes, but this isn’t that kind of laser. Rather, it’s part of a new system that Boeing hopes could spot brutal turbulence that can damage aircraft and toss passengers around the cabin—and give crews enough time to… Read Article →

Economy airline seats pose ‘life-and-death’ risk to passengers, says report

A RECENT investigation seems to confirm nearly every airline passenger’s worst fear: economy seating “could be a death trap.” The Daily Beast has reportedly examined “over 900 pages” of documents from the US Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and concluded that newer economy class seating sections may not provide adequate room for evacuation in the case of an emergency, Fox News reports. The report follows a lawsuit filed in the United States… Read Article →
