These 3 US airlines offer you the best chance to be bumped: Spirit; Frontier and Alaska …. no surprise from Spirit and Frontier — but whats going on with Alaska — usually one of the top service carriers in the US?
… Just in the US last year, over one million flights were delayed — impacting 1 in 5 arrivals! And worldwide, over 22 million pieces of luggage were mis-handled. And don’t forget there were over 20 hurricanes and 21 major named storms in the Atlantic and North Pacific. Be prepared to be patient — especially during the holiday season!!!

San Francisco’s famous “crooked” Lombard Street now requires vehicle users to have reservations and PAY A USE FEE that can range from $5 on weekdays to over $10 on weekends. Local residents are responsible for getting the fee approved and claim that over 6,000 people daily visit the 600-foot long street — causing all sorts of congestion (lines of vehicles stretching for blocks), traffic jams, trash clutter and even trespassing. Street residents claim the scenic street has become more of an “amusement park” than scenic destination!
It was a very hot mess in the cockpit of a recent Condor Air flight when the pilot spilled a cup of hot coffee on the cockpit controls on a flight over the Atlantic. The hot liquid melted some of the control instruments and the flight was diverted to Ireland for a “safety clean up.” Some communications and navigation equipment were disabled and there was smoke inside. Condor now requires crew members to use coffee cup lids — and might think of adding “cup holders” — at a spot away from the controls?
