Tips for being a more considerate airline passenger

New Runway News

November 22, 2008

This week, new runways debuted in Chicago, DC, and Seattle.  This is good news for all air travelers, since all it takes is a little backup at one airport (especially busy hubs Chicago and DC) to create a domino effect across the country, delaying flights and stranding travelers in airports overnight. Last year, I got […]
