The vast majority of people flying on U.S.-based airlines have no idea of what their rights are as airline passengers. In fact, according to Air Help, about 90% of people who fly don’t know what is and isn’t due them when their flights are delayed or cancelled, when they’re bumped, their luggage is delayed or lost, etc. So in case it happens to you and the airline is less than helpful, here’s the Readers’ Digest Condensed Version:
Happy Sunday, travel friends! Here are some articles we’ve read this week from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
- Jon from No Mas Coach asks the important question, “Why Do We Fart So Much On Airplanes?“
- Million Mile Secrets posted about the 349 room expansion to the Walt Disney World Swan hotel. This is great news for those who use Marriott/SPG points to stay at Disney but you’ll need to pay more points to stay there now since the new point charts were released.
- Harlan from Out and Out tells the 7 tricks to save when shopping at Costco.
- We’re enjoying our service with T-Mobile but I was interested in Greg’s post on Frequent Miler about the different options available when you need to use international roaming on your phone.
- Gary from View from the Wing writes about how American Airlines has started to proactively notify passengers about overbooked flights.
- The Orlando Weekly has given us a taste of what’s in store for the new Universal theme park that will open in 2020.
- One of the hassles of signing up for TSA Precheck is going for the interview. Wait times are long and you might not live near an airport. Well, Miles to Memories let us know that you may now be able to enroll at your local Staples store.
- Lucky from One Mile At A Time just flew back from the Canadian Yukon and wrote a review of his flight on Air North, the Yukon airline. From what I can tell, it was a full Canadian experience.
