Stupid Tip of the Day: 4 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Agree To Watch Someone’s Belongings

So there you are at the airport, waiting for your flight at the gate; or, perhaps you are relaxing in an airport lounge, minding your own business — and then someone comes along and asks you to watch his or her bag or other item so that he or she can go somewhere else to do whatever he or she needs to do.

Your initial instinct may be to be a nice fellow human being and convince you to say “yes” and accept the responsibility — but you should not do so for four reasons…

7 Tips on How to Ease the Baggage Claim Carousel “War Zone”

You would think that with the advent of ancillary fees charged for checked bags that the crowding around the baggage claim carousel at airports would be diminished and more civilized as a result of fewer people checking their luggage — even after I first wrote about this issue back on Tuesday, July 30, 2013…

Interline Baggage Check to be Discontinued on Split Tickets by Alaska Airlines in January

Alaska Airlines is the latest airline to join the bandwagon of implementing a policy of no longer “through-checking” passengers’ baggage when they have been ticketed on separate tickets on separate airlines, effective as of January 15, 2013.

In the meantime, some FlyerTalk members have resorted to…

Delta Air Lines is the latest airline to join the bandwagon of implementing a policy of no longer “through-checking” passengers’ baggage when they have been ticketed on separate tickets on separate airlines, effective as of January 15, 2013s. US Airways implemented a similar policy back in August, as reported here at The Gate. Some FlyerTalk members are angry, frustrated and upset about this policy.

New Baggage Delivery Service by American Airlines: a Winner?

I am usually in favor of additional options for travelers without taking away current options, and it appears that the new VIP baggage delivery service option being implemented by American Airlines starting on Monday, August 6 is one of those options. For $29.95, you can bypass the baggage claim area at the airport after your flight has landed and have your baggage delivered to your final destination within one to four hours upon arrival, whether it is your home, office, hotel or any other delivery location within 40 miles of the arrival airport which you may choose. Two pieces of baggage will cost you $39.95, and…
