Has Airline Consolidation Really Been a Boon For Travelers? (Gadling)

Aug 9th 2013 9:26PM I don't buy it. I've been flying for 30 years and every trip feels worse than the one before. Things like global wifi are lipstick on a pig. Tolerable service and a human experience are what's missing from air travel today.

Airlines now say new rule violates right to free speech (Gadling)

Jan 4th 2012 9:38PM The example of no other industry is misleading: A television purchase has sales tax and everyone knows that.

It's the insane amount of fees on top of applicable tax that is the misleading part, airline industry.

Aug 9th 2011 11:42PM Wow, I must be getting old, I blanched when I saw that $200/night was now the benchmark for affordable!

Cruise line to raise fuel surcharges. Others to follow? (Gadling)

Dec 27th 2010 10:18PM Instead of screwing around with fuel surcharges, maybe they could just charge the price that the cruise costs?

The cost of fuel, maintenance, things like that are the costs of doing business. They aren't amenities and it is ridiculous that the cruises (and airlines) are doing this.

Extra airline fees could mean better service! This is the FUTURE (Gadling)

Dec 21st 2010 8:49PM "The airlines don't realize this, but if they make all their money on the amenities, they'll actually have to deliver an enjoyable experience."

ROFLOL...yeah, I really don't see that happening.

The airlines have turned themselves in to combination Wal-Mart (cheap) and cell phone company (make you pay through the nose for anything worthwhile).

Top 3 ways to insure a great cruise vacation (Gadling)

Dec 19th 2010 5:57PM That'll teach me to use a less than sign to draw an arrow, yay for thinking I was writing an HTML tag.

Does the quote actually need to be said? I'm a big fan of the greasing the skids pre-tip but feel that the implied should be enough with out having to say it.

Judge bans predator from cruise, ruling raises questions (Gadling)

Dec 19th 2010 4:22PM Excellent point, the issue of whether the accused can leave the country is rightly something to the judge should be concerned about.

Judge bans predator from cruise, ruling raises questions (Gadling)

Dec 19th 2010 4:19PM This is a slippery slope:

1)
There is a presumption that the "sexual predator" was not rehabilitated after their conviction.
2)
Why just sexual predators? Why not ANY criminal? Should a thief or a robber be banned from the cruise?
3)
What about malls? Parks? Flights as mentioned above?
