Who owns the records of your travel?

Do you want all the details of your past airline travel sold to a data mining company? Did you ask for a Kosher or a Halal meal? Which countries or airports did you travel to?

Destinations accepting US tourists

Figuring out this summer’s travel restrictions feels like navigating a labyrinth with no ball of thread. At best, it’s maddening. At worst, it’s simply impossible. The public health situation of every country is fluid, meaning concrete reopening dates are as elusive as airline tickets with no cancellation fees. This is incredibly frustrating for those eager for a much-needed summer vacation. Luckily, some destinations have already reopened their borders to international tourism, or set hard d...

Future of air travel

No one can look ahead to the post-pandemic world and claim to know what it will look like. There are, however, two certainties: People will be eager to travel again, and travel itself will be very different for quite some time. Exactly what the airport experience will look like is anyone’s guess, but we already have some clues.

Aeroplan Temporarily Waiving Infant Charges On Award Tickets

Bringing a child under 2 years old on a plane with you is free for domestic flights if you don't buy them a seat. However when you travel internationally an infant without a seat needs a ticket, and those can be expensive even when you're redeeming miles for your own flight. When you book an award and add a lap infant, some programs charge you 10% of a paid ticket. That's standard for United, Delta and American. If you redeem miles for a $6000 business class ticket, the lap infant costs you $60...

Heathrow’s Terminal 2 and Flybe to Edinburgh (A Cranky Travelogue)

I had made it to London, and that meant I had only one flight left that day, my first on the recently re-capitalized Flybe. But first, I had to make it through the gauntlet that is Heathrow, and I had to do it with no sleep. This was my first visit to Terminal 2, also known as The Queen’s Terminal, so it was unfamiliar territory. While it was striking, it appears to have been designed to make you walk as much as humanly possible. A Last Minute Pilgrimage to Islay, the Home of Scotland’s Pe...
