Like Watching Airplanes? Check Out Austin Airport’s New Deck

Austin airport has grown tremendously since we first visited the area over a decade ago. The increase in the number of flights and passengers pushed the capacity limits of the airport, putting a strain on all of the resources from baggage handling to parking spaces, and eventually capacity limitations caused prices of flights to increase significantly.

Austin airport announced an expansion plan and the first phase of it opened in February 2019. The most immediate impact was the addition of 9 new gates, which increased the number of flights the airport can handle.

In May of 2019, Delta opened their new SkyClub in that new addition and it’s an amazing space located at the end of the terminal on the second floor between gates 1 and 2.

With This Simple Little Gadget, You May Never Have To Fight Over The Armrest Again

I think one of the more annoying things on a plane is the “game” of arm rest wars. As I’ve said in the past, the person stuck in the middle seat really should get the arm rests because, after all, the poor buggers really don’t have anything else going for them. But that doesn’t stop jerks in the window or aisle seat from hogging up the arm rests. And if you think about it, historically, there really wasn’t anything anyone could do about armrest hogs.
