Airlines Are Preventing Dangerous Electronics From Planes. How Can You Find Out If Your Stuff Is Allowed Or Not?

Recently, several airlines have banned passengers from bringing certain Apple MacBook Pro models onboard planes as either hand baggage or inside checked bags. The underlying reason is that the batteries in the recalled laptop computers can overheat, posing a fire hazard.

This Travel Service Can Help You With Flights On An À La Carte Basis – But Is It Worth It?

There are some people who are DIYers when it comes to air travel. They love to look for the best bargain via cash or miles, to find and use the best apps to get up-to-the-second updates, and the challenge of figuring out another way to get to their destination if their flight plans somehow go haywire (I have just described my husband to a T, by the way). (Joe – True! I was reading and thinking “she’s describing me.”)

Other people are not like that. They may not have the time, know-how or motivation to figure all that out and they’d just as soon pay someone to do it for them, as needed.

I think I’ve found a website for them…
