Weekly Roundup, Friday 22 March 2019

Bet you can’t name this distinctive capital city. See item, below. Good morning“I’m sorry, I’m having difficulty understanding that right now.  Please try again later.”That was the regular response, during the last nightmarish couple of weeks, to my regular morning request “Alexa, turn on David Bed Light”.  An intermittent problem with my new Netgear router often meant it had frozen overnight, so when it came time to turn on the light in the morning as part of a regular getting out of bed routin...

Was What She Wore Inappropriate For Travel?

“Flying from Bham to Tenerife, Thomas Cook told me that they were going to remove me from the flight if I didn’t ‘cover up’ as I was ‘causing offence’ and was ‘inappropriate’. They had 4 flight staff around me to get my luggage to take me off the plane.” What you just read was... The post Was What She Wore Inappropriate For Travel? appeared first on The Gate.

Long-Haul, Low-Cost Airlines: The Latest

Read the full article on PeterGreenberg.com at - Long-Haul, Low-Cost Airlines: The Latest More and more new airlines are showing up at a runway near you. Why? Because the airline business is plagued by an absence of economies of scale. And what that means is any small player can go out and lease planes at a lower cost and compete against the big airlines. And what’s the result?... The post Long-Haul, Low-Cost Airlines: The Latest appeared first on Peter Greenberg Travel Detective.

Has the Reason For Perfecting the Boarding Process Changed?

Airlines have been attempting for decades to significantly improve the boarding process — usually with little to no success — and the main reason for doing so has been to shorten the turnaround time from when an airplane arrives at the gate at the conclusion of one flight to when it departs for the next flight. Theoretically, when the turnaround time is shortened between flights, additional flights can fit into the schedule. More flights per day would therefore supposedly mean more revenue per d...

Stones (in both foreground and background) and sheep (everywhere) – we’ll see these in Kilmartin Glen, on our Scotland’s Highland Highlights Tour this September. Good morningWow, what a wild and crazy week this one has been, with the added dimension, for me personally but hopefully not for you, of (hopefully just) experiencing another kidney stone event.  These seem to be occurring with increasing frequency.The extraordinarily dysfunctional nature of Obamacare was driven home to me.  When it bec...

Flight Review: El Al Business Class (787-9) From New York to Tel Aviv

I have long been fascinated by El Al. Since they became a Qantas codeshare partner in 2017, I have wanted to experience the Israeli national airline. Long had I heard that El Al’s long-haul staples – the trusty Boeing 777-200ER – were not as fresh and comfortable as rivals flying on similar routes. But when El Al took delivery of their first Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner in 2017, I was set determined to experience their long-haul product. It only took me two-years! (NB: This photo taken of similar p...

When is an Airplane (ie B737 MAX) Too Dangerous to Fly?

Remains of the Ethiopian Airlines B737 MAX 8, in the crater caused by its crash. This question, very similar to “how high is up” has been much in people’s thoughts this week with the Boeing 737 MAX and its two recent crashes.In an interesting duality that reflects how public debate has not flourished in the social media era, there was first a clamor of people demanding all 737 MAX planes be grounded, and then, as each successive national authority duly did so, even more pressure was felt by the ...

Too Sexy to Fly: Woman in Crop Top Told to Cover Up or Get Off

Imagine my shock that Thomas Cook Airlines claims to have an (unpublished) policy against ‘inappropriate’ dress and that it was enforced against Emily O’Connor as she boarded her flight to Tenerife, a holiday destination in the Canary Islands. Southwest Airlines of course famously kicked 23 year old Kyla Ebbert off a flight over her short skirt, which struck me as ironic considering the original Southwest Airlines uniform.

Obese Airline Passengers: The Debate Continues in 2019

A passenger reportedly charged a fellow passenger $150.00 for taking up a third of his seat space aboard an airplane due to his being obese — despite attempts by the large passenger to squeeze himself into his own seat as much as possible. Whether that incident actually occurred or not is not the point. Rather, the debate over obese passengers aboard airplanes is as controversial as ever. “Most people don’t know it but you can actually... The post Obese Airline Passengers: The Debate Continues i...
