Good morning Was this the week when every passenger’s frustration boiled over, and we spontaneously all resolved not to accept two hour (and sometimes longer!) waits to go through security any more?  If it wasn’t, it sure should have been, and an eruption of news stories told tales of woe (and, worse, missed flights and […]

Good morning I should have the next paragraph saved somewhere so I can just cut and paste it the several times each year it deserves to be called out.  As it definitely does this week. Yet again we’ve seen the results of the unequal battle between weather and our national aviation system.  Snow, of the […]

Merry Christmas to you So here I am, perhaps the only non shift-worker or retail employee, still working at midnight on Christmas Eve/Christmas Day. I’m motivated to do so not from the usual dutiful desire to send you the best of each week’s travel related news and commentary, but rather out due to my great excitement […]

Good morning We’re coming up the home straight of 2015.  I hope it has been a good year for you thus far, and the Christmas season will treat you kindly. Some of us are eagerly counting down the days to our Christmas Markets cruise, starting at the end of next week.  But, alas, our number […]

Would I be […]

Good morning Today sees Apple’s latest iPhone 6s models hitting the stores, and, predictably, some people started lining up outside the stores a couple of days ago.  One has to wonder – is Apple quietly paying some of these people to do such a thing?  Or are they just so bereft of a real life […]

Good morning May already, and summer just around the corner.  Many of us travel over the summer, and for some of us, that’s when we have most time to read a book or three, and so I’ve written an article updating the current options for reading eBooks. There’s an increasingly valid solution these days for […]

Weekly Roundup, Friday 6 March 2015

Good morning For some of us, there’s a definite feeling of spring in the air already.  For others of us, there’s an equally strong feeling of continued winter, following another week of daily delays and flight cancellations, ostensibly due to bad weather. I pointed out last week that most of these ‘weather’ delays should more […]
