Affordable business class airlines

Flying business class is a luxury most of us fantasize about from the time we book our tickets to the time we debark, hurting and exhausted, from the economy cabin. Of course, perks like lounge access and legroom are tempting, but the cost of an upgrade is usually too hard for the average traveler to justify. Luckily, it doesn’t always have to be. Not only can you look out for Z-class fares, business tickets sold at discounted rates, but a number of airlines also consistently offer great price...

Needless Panic Over a Wi-FI Network Name

A Turkish Airlines flight made an emergency landing because someone named his wireless network (presumably from his smartphone) "bomb on board." In 2006, I wrote an essay titled "Refuse to be Terrorized." (I am also reminded of my 2007 essay, "The War on the Unexpected." A decade later, it seems that the frequency of incidents like the one above is less, although not zero. Progress, I suppose. [Author: Bruce Schneier]

Bishkek Fact & Fiction: What You Should Know About Kyrgyzstan’s Capital

Writing about my experiences in Kyrgyzstan has been an intellectual challenge I’ve enjoyed. It’s a challenge because I had to start with the supposition that 1) most people know nothing about Kyrgyzstan and 2) most people don’t have Kyrgyzstan on their travel to-do lists. I say this not to judge, but because it also describes me perfectly until just a few months ago. Like many other writers, bloggers and photographers, I was approached by USAID to participate in a very unique project. The goal ...
