Yup — the federal government is now telling airlines that if a passenger’s bag is delayed 10 hours or more (25 hours for international flights) the passengers bag fees MUST be refunded. Bag fees are now “big $$$’s revenue” for airlines!!!!
Looks that way — but only in First Class!!! US Domestic coach passengers may “NEVER” taste hot food again on flights!!!
Maybe — some airlines are talking about prioritizing vaccinated travelers with their own check-in line and offering “pre-boarding” as part of the incentive — the program will most likely start in the fall with international carriers — we’ll see if the “option” travels to US carriers?
New Zealand — although the country has six times as many sheep as people, the country’s climate, location, energy sources and agriculture make it ideal! Other potential locations include Iceland, Tasmania, and Ireland. Plan ahead — there may be a rush??
YUP! Uber now offers fresh flower delivery along with its ride and food service (Uber Eats). Their deal is with Pro Flowers (part of FTD) and “says” they will be able to deliver flower orders in under and hour — watch for the national rollout early next year!!!
COVID’S Delta surge is causing major changes with fall travel — advance bookings are down by 25% and cancelations of previously booked travel are way up. Will airlines respond with short term low fares OR continue their upward price spiral???
Maybe. The European Union — over 30 countries — says upcoming fall travel might be “iffy” from the US because of the COVID “Delta” variant — check individual destination requirements — and in-transit stops — before booking — more “ups and downs” in this most challenging travel year ….. travel to Europe from the US down this year from 36 million to 6 million …..mask up — travel safe !!!!
Yup— no travel from Europe into the US until Thanksgiving — maybe longer — frustrating but COVID safety first!!!
Yup, just this year so far — most are for mask incidents both on and off the plane —with over half of these passengers refusing to wear a mask — PLEASE — MASK UP!!!
Yup, starting next month TAILWIND seaplane service will start flying between Boston and New York. Fares will range between $395 and $795 for the 90-minute flights on 8 passenger Cessnas. Miss the major airport hassles and enjoy the scenery!!!!
Jet Blue — Southwest — American!!!
