    Beautiful Photo of Flight in Eclipse

    A photographer caught an image of American Airlines flight #9661 in Idaho as it passed by the eclipse. The photographer and flight crew are in touch. Sometimes flying is a beautiful experience. https://www.reddit.com/r/pics/comments/6v6y1k/hello_reddit_i_am_the_accidental_photographer_of/

    Oooh United !!!

    Twice in the past six months I have had a gate change. Both times the gate I was flying out of had the original city listed and was not updated to reflect the gate change. So it could be the gate sign remained Paris. Sometimes the announcements are only at the gate itself and you do not hear it...

    New TSA Pat Down

    I flew again yesterday. Who do I contact about the process? I think they need to adjust how the person getting the pat down stands-with one foot forward to avoid anyone falling. I have better than average balance (thanks free yoga at work!) but had to step backwards twice yesterday as the force...

    New TSA Pat Down

    Hi- Per Chris's article I thought I would share my experience. I always opt-out and pass through security about 40 times a year. I do not have pre-check and doubt I would be approved. I flew on April 3 and April 6 and experienced the new pat down and it is awful. The difference between all...

    Stranded insurance company won't help

    Hello, I disputed the tour company charge on my credit card company. I have a strong case and the other customers in the group are an interesting mix of people who have traveled to every country or make their living from travel blogs and they have offered to help too. Insurance does not cover...

    Stranded insurance company won't help

    Thank you all. I called three times more and the third agent said it was possible some costs might be covered. I have the cheapest rental car available at $35/day. Hotel was cheap for here but uncomfortable so I called Hilton as they have a hotel here and since I stay with them so often for work...

    Stranded insurance company won't help

    I purchase the policy directly from HTH website. Their 24 hour emergency number is for medical emergencies only which is not the kind of help I need. HTH has trip delay, trip interruption, and trip cancellation through Insuremytrip-when I called them more than once they say they are sorry for my...

    Stranded insurance company won't help

    hello, I purchased HTHworldwide TripProtector Classic. I traveled to oman to join an all inclusive tour. The tour company cancelled the day the tour was to begin and I think they are a scam as they kept everyones money but that story is for another day. I'm stuck from February 15-19 as the...

    Tour Delayed by a Day

    Hello, Background-I purchased a tour leaving from Oman and international tickets on Emirates Denver-Dubai and return for $866 as well as a very comprehensive insurance plan. The tour company was notified on February 4th that a government coalition approved the tour charter plane to return one...

    Tour Delayed by a Day

    Neil-right, the tour company had nothing to do with the air change. It was completely out of their control and they were surprised by it and tried to reason with the government but the choices were cancel all together or fly a day later and the tour company chose the day later option. If they...

    Tour Delayed by a Day

    Hi, Thanks all. The tour includes a charter flight but not international flights which I booked independently. While I have an upgraded insurance plan, it will cover none of the costs to change the flight. Trip Delay and Trip Interruption don't start until Thursday-my day of travel. I talked...

    Tour Delayed by a Day

    Hello, I have a unique situation. I'm booked round trip on Emirates to Dubai. I'm separately booked on a round trip flight on FlyDubai to get to an airport to meet up with a United Arab of Emirates group tour with a charter plane to an island. I insured all these costs upon booking. The...

    Tour date changed

    Thanks Patina and Neil. Neil-do you think insurance would only pay the change fees and not the increase in airfare? My international flight on Emirates is a 300USD change fee plus several hundred increase in fare. As it turns out FlyDubai does not have a flight at all on the new date. Oman air...

    Tour date changed

    hello, My tour company contacted everyone today because a government in another country changed the approval for our charter flight for a day later. I need to change flights on two airlines tow day later. I have trip insurance and called and they said on the phone it should be covered and sent...

    Allegiant Air Safety

    Does this mean that Allegiant Air does not meet FAA or other government requirements for safety? I have not flown with them and now I see no reason too. This statement made me wonder about safety standards: "Allegiant had about nine times as many serious incidentsover that period as Delta Air...

    Spirit and Insurance

    I have read several policies but it is confusing. I think I understand Trip Cancellation but Trip Delay and Trip Interruption are less clear even after reading. If it is $1,000 for trip delay of 6 hours or more does that mean if the second flight bringing me home is cancelled or delayed a day I...

    Spirit and Insurance

    Hello, I want to escape the election and plan to travel to a remote area. Unfortunately the only flight with one connection is on Spirit and the price is less than half United or American which involve flying the wrong direction all day and two connections. I avoid Spirit but this time I intend...
