At-gate greetings at Seattle airport

Since 9/11 , the old movie cliche of running through the airport to meet someone at the gate and dramatically proclaiming your love for them, has been off the table. For the past 17 years, we have not been able to walk through security with our shoes on, stray mints in our pockets have triggered TSA alarms, and at-gate greetings have been banned.

Flying What’s Left of Virgin America on Alaska Airlines to Seattle (Trip Report)

Last year, I turned 40. This year, it was my wife’s turn. And for her 40th, she wanted to go on an Alaska cruise with me and the kids. After looking at all the options, she picked a trip on the new Norwegian Bliss, and that meant we’d go roundtrip from Seattle. Though we thought about flying on JetBlue out of Long Beach, Alaska had a better fare by far (could use my annual companion ticket that comes with the Visa card) and better times out of LAX. We were originally booked on an Alaska 737 ...

Cooper, according to private investigators. The potential evidence was handed over to authorities last week by the team of sleuths who believe the foam made up a part of Cooper's parachute backpack, the New York Daily News reports.
