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 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?

As the 3-1 Bruins return to TD Garden for Saturday night’s home opener against the New Jersey Devils — the team’s first regular season game in the venue since last year’s Stanley Cup Finals — a normally joyous occasion has been overshadowed by a roiling controversy concerning fans and their fannies. The replacement earlier this year of seats throughout the arena — as well as the addition of 500 new spots — has left many fuming over the suddenly cramped quarters. In recent days, countless fans have voiced their seat-size-related frustrations, filling social media with complaints about discomfort and nonexistent legroom and, in some cases, threatening to boycott the Garden altogether. “I expect it when I fly on Spirit Airlines,” said Dan Rosa of Lexington, a clinical psychologist and Bruins season-ticket holder for more than 25 years. “I don’t expect it when I go to the Garden.” In a statement this week, TD … [Read more...] about At TD Garden, fans are feeling the squeeze
One size does not fit all when it comes to traveling and exploring the world. For plus-size globetrotters, that presents some challenges along the way, whether it’s too-snug airplane seats or spa robes meant for someone of more diminutive stature. Take heart, though—the problems are surmountable. Where there is a desire to take a journey, there are workable solutions to ensure grand experiences. Tips for Plus-Size Travelers Here are tips geared to fellow voyagers of size, gleaned from my own travels as a Rubenesque gal who has racked up visits to more than 70 countries. Choose Size-Friendly Airlines In the U.S., most airlines require that you be able to lower both armrests and buckle up your seatbelt (using one extender).
