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!!!
January 15, 2019: Never easy to find and buy beer in some Middle Eastern Cities — if you can find a place to buy beer in QATAR a six pack will set you back $26! The price for a case, if you can find one, will set you back over $100. Drink slowly!!!
The human heart, being transported from Dallas to Seattle on a Southwest flight, was left behind — not off loaded — in the planes cargo hold area on arrival at Seattle. 90 minutes later the plane flew off to another destination. When the crew was informed — over an hour into the flight, they told passengers they were returning to Seattle to deliver the precious cargo — you just have to wonder how these things happen?
January 11, 2019: Could be — TSA reports they pick up at least 9 loaded guns a day at US airports — travelers passing through security lines seem to “have forgotten” they have the guns or “accidentally” left them in a bag? Even more unloaded guns are found by TSA daily!
January 10, 2019: Yup — happened recently in Cadiz, Spain — where city officials “relocated” over 5000 messy, pesky pigeons to an undisclosed location over 500 miles away from their city. City officials call their pigeons “flying rats” and now plan the relocations as an annual event. London now fines anyone seen feeding a pigeon $500. Hopefully the Spanish birds are happy in their new isolated mountain home?
January 9, 2019: Happened recently in Westoennen, Germany, when a local chocolate factory had a major spill from their mixing equipment and over ONE TON of hot chocolate rolled out on to the street. When it hit the chilled pavement it quickly froze — much to the enjoyment of locals and fire fighters who had to pry the “tasty” chocolate off the pavement with shovels — a sweet time was enjoyed by all!
… and of course build incremental revenue. Activities could include: cheese-making classes, sailing, cooking and even painting — on the beach if one is nearby! Watch the costs and price add-ons!
January 7, 2019: The US and Britain have reached a deal that will protect travel flights between the 2 countries post-Brexit — thats good news for the 20 million air travelers who fly between the 2 countries every year — as well as more than 900,000 pounds of cargo! Worth a “spot of tea” don’t you think?
December 14, 2018: A New York mattress company is offering Manhattan naps — for $25 you can try for a 45 minute nap in your own private darkened space. They say the $25 gets you peace and quiet for 45 minutes — body lotions, skin balms, jammies and a toothbrush are all extra!
December 13, 2018: The new project is called, “Backyard” and Airbnb says they will be building these small houses for owners who want to rent out rooms and share living spaces with the owner. They say it’s to offer “flexible living spaces” for owners and travelers — AirBnb, and this concept, not a TC favorite!!!
