If you’ve ever flown with the budget carrier, you know that Spirit Airlines’ baggage limit for a personal item is uniquely small. Customers who haven’t paid the mandatory fee of $35 (online) to $65 (at the gate) for a carry-on are only allowed a personal item about the size of a tote bag, day pack, or very small duffel—under 18 x 14 x 8 inches, to be exact. It’s difficult to fit everything you need for a weekend into those dimensions, but it’s not impossible; I’ve done it many times with the help of a near-maximum (or ever-so-slightly over-the-maximum) personal item like the ones below.

News : Travel There was utter chaos at Chicago O’Hare International Airport on Monday following a frightening incident. An airport catering cart, being used to deliver food to airlines including American Airlines, went completely out of control. You have to see it to believe it! Luckily, an American Airlines employee came to the rescue and saved the day with some quick thinking and driving skills. The video shows the cart’s crazy circular ride on the tarmac. It’s like something out of a comedy sketch. As the cart continues to spin, it gets closer to the nose of a nearby plane, but in the nick of time, an American Airlines employee drives another vehicle into the mental cart, causing both to crash and saving the plane and nearby employees from severe injury and damage. Even if you find the food on American Airlines horrific (you’ll be shocked to see what they currently serve in First Class), 18 Million people have enjoyed watching this airline food take its … [Read more...] about Chaos At Chicago Airport As American Airlines Cart Goes Crazy
Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines was named the best North American airline for the second year in a row. Business Traveller magazine announced the winners of its 2019 Business Traveller Awards this week, and Delta once again took top honors in the category of best North American airline. The awards recognize excellence in travel and hospitality.

News : Travel Related: American Airlines I have a childish palate when it comes to my taste in food. While I think that one of the more recent additions to the American Airline’s First Class menu is horrific, I explain more here, the AA warm cookies win my heart. The scent in the cabin is wonderful as they’re heated up, the satisfying sweet crunch is delicious. Being British, I find that a cookie (or biscuit) goes extremely well with my cup of tea. American Airlines has, however, changed their supplier and View From The Wing reports that these new cookies are less gooey but too sweet: The new cookie is “a little less gooey than the last cookie which is actually a good thing. It didn’t disintegrate picking it up. That said I didn’t love the consistency, and it was too sweet for my taste. I’d prefer it to be paired with something to give it better balance.” While we’re not talking about the introduction of a new high-end champagne or a … [Read more...] about Is New American Airlines First Class Cookie Good Or Bad?
