Yes — it really can happen, and has recently on a United flight from San Diego to Houston. Female passenger noticed a video camera in the jets first class bathroom, but the passenger who installed the camera shot video of himself first. the FBI is now “talking” with him (seems they also found other bathroom flight videos on his camera). Be watchful when you travel — especially of small blinking lights when using the aircraft restroom!!!
The FAA now says that, with proper paperwork (medical, etc.), Pit Bulls are ok to travel as emotional support animals — but bans of emotional support snakes are still in place meaning they aren’t coming on the plane with you. Most experts agree that the pet emotional support flying program has gotten way out of hand and is really only a “ploy” by passengers to avoid paying fees for traveling with Fido and other assorted critters!
The new mobile app claims to provide notifications for exact locations in over 50 counties worldwide — street by street and minute by minute. If this really works, the new app might make some “waves” in travel weather forecasting???
Yup — British Airways reported that it’s London-New York service is now part of a very exclusive club that generates over one billion a year in revenue for the carrier. What a take away!!!
… And for fares to increase. Nearly 3 million people a day took to flight over last month’s 4-day Labor Day weekend — and more to come for fall travel and upcoming holidays.
Major carriers like American, Southwest and United are fighting capacity and scheduling issues with now long term 737 Max flight safety issues — that have forced capacity cut backs and blocked deliveries — and some route cancellations. And all this with record setting revenue — maybe less is good for airlines — especially if they can sneak in price increases?
Not only at airports, but everywhere through out thew US of A! Amazing!
A San Francisco area ride share firm, called Zum, is now targeting kids — by offering exclusive ride sharing services to help move your gang to school, social events, and other time consuming car pool needs. Might this make life easier for parents and nannies??? We’ll see!!!
Yup — United is now saying your “hard earned-expensive” frequent flyer miles will now be good forever — they’re even reinstating your expired miles for the last year! Although not the first US carrier to do this, it is a big customer service move for UAL. Now lets get back to working on ground and flight customer services!!!
TSA Security at Seattle were really on the job recently when they spotted a passenger carrying a lovely bouquet of flowers through their security line with a hidden knife. As one agent said, “roses are red, violets are blue, but a knife hidden in your flowers can’t be carried through!”
Spirit Airlines is now going to let flyers book by text — but charge $25 for the privilege! You need to use WhatsApp — Spirit says it’s a way to “better connect” with passengers! Spirit continues to lead the industry with poor customer services and travel airport+flight delays!!!
