January 29, 2019: Yup — many airlines are now charging travelers an extra “Up Front Seating Fee” if you want to sit closer to the front — seems excessive especially with airline profits are record highs. Bathroom fees next? Maybe a camper-style port-a-potty is in order???
January 16, 2019: Delta is changing it’s flight boarding order based on how much your ticket costs — ticket costs on most flights can represent over a dozen different prices and fares — higher priced fare holders board first — low cost super economy fares bring up the end of the line. Shameful way to treat customers!!!

December 4, 2018: Best airport retail displays – and best airport retail sales folks in the US — Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport!
November 30, 2018: That’s the word from NOMAD and their new fit in your pocket battery cable — five foot long charging cord with a built in battery that’s got enough juice to charge a fully dead phone. Sells for $50 and might be worth a try?
