The Real Reason Coach Travel Isn’t As Pleasant As It Used To Be

The reason that air travel in coach isn't as luxurious as it was 50 years ago is because of deregulation. Air travel is much less expensive. Planes are full - and the number one determinant of a pleasant flight in back is whether you have an empty seat next to you. Airlines don't operate with the high margins they did when government prevented them from competing with each other on price. As a result they don't invest in luxurious food to lure travelers away from competitors, since they weren't...

Up High

I’m loving our new apartment on the 23rd floor. As I have written before, I have become the Paris Weather Girl because I can see everything, even from across the room. In our old apartment I had to go right up and look up at an apartment across the courtyard to see if the wind was blowing their bushes around to know the weather. Rain too wasn’t that obvious. I feel like we are right up in the sky and I can see the weather and hear it too. I read that wind is common here in Europe this time of ye...
