This happened on a flight from MUC to IAD last year on Lufthansa. Before boarding the plane, my wife and I hoped to use up some of our spare expiring miles to buy some duty-free booze. We asked a young lady who worked there and spoke good English if they took miles and she said […]

I was on my way home from Florida, going through security at FLL. Like at most airports, the area the line goes through right by the X-ray machines is very narrow. A woman decided to stop right there and put her shoes back on, blocking the rest of the line from getting through.

Just last month my husband and I were headed out of town for a wedding. As we waited in line at airport security, a family in front of us were putting their belongings into the required screening bins, and they had so much stuff they used the last bin in the stack.

My wife and I were flying home from Vegas a few years ago. We got to our airport departure lounge with about an hour to spare. It was crowded, and we were seated near the end of our row of seats. Lots of luggage was strewn throughout our aisle. The restrooms were located at the opposite […]
