My experiences with US airlines, in general, have been mixed. I can’t bear those internal flights in the super tiny planes where everyone appears to have brought the maximum hand luggage allowed on board. I have tended to avoid US airlines when it has come to Business and Premium due to my low expectations. My last premium economy experience in British Airways had not really been all that premium but I had had an excellent experience with Virgin Atlantic Premium Economy so I was curious to see what was ahead!US airlines have recently been doing some major investment in premium economy and both Delta and United have relatively new premium economy offers which I plan to try out!

PASSENGERS have spotted cameras on the in-flight entertainment (IFE) systems of several major airlines, sparking fears that they could be spied on. The newer IFEs available on some planes operated by American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and Singapore Airlines have cameras. It's likely there are also cameras on planes used by other carriers. All four airlines said that they have never activated the cameras and have no plans to use them. A passenger on a Singapore Airlines flight posted a photo of the seat-back display last week, and the tweet was shared several hundred times. Several Twitter users said that they would be travelling with stickers from now on. Singapore Airlines explained on Twitter that the cameras seen were "provided by the original equipment manufacturers" as part of the "hardware". The airline added that the cameras were disabled on their planes and "there are no plans to develop any features using the cameras". However, companies that make the … [Read more...] about Passengers are terrified that airlines are SPYING on them after spotting cameras on in-flight entertainment systems

By Miriam Schwartz | PUBLISHED: February 7, 2019 at 3:19 pm | UPDATED: February 7, 2019 at 4:12 pm There are two distinct, yet complementary sides to living in a Millennium Tower condominium. On the one hand, the now fourth-tallest building in the city offers resident movers and shakers the kind of luxury appointments and service you’d expect in the most high-end hotels. On the other hand, once you’re home and perched — quite literally — on the 39th floor, there’s a detached, serene feeling of sanctuary. At that height, with floor-to-ceiling windows lending themselves to a jaw-dropping view of the Charles, Back Bay, and Financial District, the interior space becomes one with scenery. After the sun sets, the luxe apartment melts into a sea of twinkling city lights. Clearly, Unit 3901 at the very exclusive 1 Franklin St. address isn’t even your typical luxury apartment.
