I think WN's system has some kind of glitch in it. My last several flights, I booked a second seat in advance as I have been for years, and checked in at the gate as usual, but they always seem to...

Renewing the passport book and getting a new card together looks like it will cost $140.

If you already have a passport book that doesn't need renewal, you'll only pay $30 for a passport card....

I always bring a P&S with me on a flight. Phone and tablet cams are totally inadequate, and I like to get pics out the window, and occasionally in the cabin (I like to snap one of the FA doing safety...

I don't think Chollie meant that TSA should be conducting flight operations, I think he meant that their mandate is to keep aircraft operating safe and intact from acts of terrorism. I.E. that they...

Well, that all depends on the response of the crew and pax doesn't it? All four planes on 9/11 were hijacked - and brought down - by knife-wielding hijackers.

However, I believe that the new...

A major airport's baggage system is a massive collection of belts, with inputs at each airline, feeding into one or more TSA inline screening rooms behind the scenes. Shut down buttons don't shut...

Spirit is investing heavily in self-service check in kiosks, which means fewer personnel monitoring the counters and belts, so stuff like this is bound to happen. The kid just walked right across the...

I had the same thought when I saw him scrambling at the entrance to the machine.

It's always been my understanding (though not from any reliable source, so I could easily be incorrect) that the...

Nothing confusing about that - the CC probably just assumed that the request came from a legitimate couple who had been split up by seat assignments. It probably never occurred to the CC that the...
