Jennifer Garner Practicing Ballet On A San Francisco Airport Moving Walkway

Some people like Jennifer Garner for her work in TV's Alias while others appreciate her more for 13 Going On 30.

Bernie Sanders Caught Flying First Class

When Bernie Sanders was running for the Democratic nomination in 2016 he charted a Boeing 767 to meet the Pope. Dinner included herb crusted lamb and fine cheeses along with lobster sliders midflight. While the democratic socialist does fly coach, even North Korea's Air Koryo has a business class. Senator Sanders, who honeymooned in the Soviet Union, looked sheepish flying first class on an American Airlines Embraer ERJ-175 regional jet.

TV Heart Throb’s Melt Down At American Airlines Gate Caught On Film

Richard Grieco starred beside Johnny Depp in FOX’s 21 Jump Street. Young girls everywhere had a poster of him up on their walls. Now Grieco is 54 years old, picks up the occasional role, but mostly lives the dream of being young and famous even though he's neither any longer - and certainly doesn't look the part. When confronted by police he declared himself the ultimate 'don't know you who I am,' he says "I'm Richard Grieco, you guys know who I am." An Officer asks him to rate how drunk he is...

Two Passengers Caught Insanely Fighting Over the Window Shade, Which One Was Right?

The person in the window seat usually has control over whether the window shade is open or closed. However courtesy plays a role too. On overnight flights across time zones window shades should be closed whenever possible - many passengers are trying to sleep, but it may be light out early. The outside light might also interfere with an aisle seat passenger seeing their laptop screen and getting work done. Reasonable requests should be accommodated, though it's up to the passenger in the win...

Heartwarming: Crewmember Feeds 117 Year Old Passenger On Board

It's the simple kindnesses that mean the most, and they touch all of us when they're done for the people who need them the most. So it's no surprise that a Lion Air crewmember's actions on a domestic flight in Indonesia - from Surabaya to Palangkaraya - are spreading like wildfire around the world. Video captures a simple human interaction, and it's nice to think that as impersonal as travel has become that every so often people are just people and care for each other.

Is This The Biggest Boarding Pass That Has Ever Been Printed?

For years airlines have allowed you to print your own boarding pass at home. They don’t even usually tell you what kind of paper you’re allowed to use. We know you’ll cause some hysteria if you generate boarding passes for flights you don’t actually have a ticket for. But beyond that, are there limits to what you can get away with? This is actually a pretty good gag, but if you decide to try it at home it's a good idea to have a backup copy that's smaller - just in case. And beware, travel alon...

Passenger Rushes Past Gate Agent, Declares Himself the FBI

American Airlines flight AA1060 from Miami to Newark was delayed about three and a half hours today when a man “ran onto the plane screaming that it was his plane and he’s FBI.” The Captain made an announcement, going farther than he should have and likely speculating baselessly, that they "think the guy was a decoy to distract from something else." Everyone was offloaded and passengers and bags were searched. Continue reading Passenger Rushes Past Gate Agent, Declares Himself the FBI...

Passenger moved and met by police

If there’s one thing that’s sure to rile up an airplane passenger, it’s to cram them in a regular seat when they booked greater legroom. When budget airline Ryanair deprived Bob Hamilton of his extra legroom seat (which he had paid $26 for), on a flight from London to Malaga, he responded by refusing to pay his $22 drink bill at the end of the trip. Hamilton, who is six-feet-two-inches tall, was understandably peeved when he found someone else sitting in his extra legroom seat. According to t...
