How many deodorants have we lost to the whims of the dedicated public servants at the Transportation Security Administration? How many bottles of water, how many large knives, how many loaded guns and severed heads we just honest to God forgot were in there? Today, at last, all that is going to change.
An Alaska Airlines flight from Portland to Anchorage was diverted yesterday after a man attempted to kiss a sleeping 16-year-old girl.
I don’t know about you, but if I’m paying $38,000 for the world’s most expensive in-flight suite, I expect the entire experience to be positively slathered in luxury, dripping from every gold-plated surface like sweat should be dripping from the temples of my cadre of hustling servants.
An 81-year-old attorney who was forced to move seats because an Orthodox Jewish man objected to sitting next to her is suing the Israeli airline El Al. Renee Rabinowitz, backed by an left-leaning religious advocacy group, is accusing the airline of illegal discrimination against her.
A British Airways plane was taken out of service last week after bed bugs were discovered when the crew tried to stuff extra large carry-ons into an overhead compartment.
This is Etiquette Monster, Jezebel’s advice column where senior writer Madeleine Davies gets worked up and starts screaming about manners. Have a question about etiquette? Email Madeleine at your own risk.
In news that will scarcely impact how miserable it is to fly, United States airlines are reaching their destinations on time more often than ever before. In fact, the second half of 2015 saw performance records that were “among the best ever.”
Six months ago, Harrison Ford crashed a World War II plane on Los Angeles golf course which was a monumental bummer. But, much like Star Wars, Ford is back—and now he’s restricting himself to crashing weddings.
Saudia, Saudi Arabia's national airline, is reportedly planning to begin segregating their flights by gender. The move, first reported by Arabic-language news agency Ajel, is in response to male passengers complaining about their wives and daughters being seated next strange men.
A woman was sexually assaulted by a flight attendant on a Malaysian Airlines flight.
The Transportation Security Agency has long been maligned for making us take off our shoes and go through a metal detector fifteen times before someone is finally happy. This Instagram won't make up for all that, but it's probably the most amusing/informative thing you will see today.
The key to a successful business, as I understand it, is finding some shit nobody needs and then filling it in the most inconvenient possible way (I am not great at business). Which is probably why Jay Z is opening a nightclub at the Atlanta airport—because lots of people NEED to voluntarily go hang out at the worst…
In new reports that may or may not be true, the Daily Mail says that Nigella Lawson attempted to go on vacation Sunday but was barred at the airport because of her recently admitted past drug use. Hmmm.
It's hard on the ultra-rich when they're forced to fly commercial. In consideration of their delicate sensibilities, airlines are increasingly pampering first and business-class passengers on international flights. The new hotness: Keeping them far, far away from the wretched, seething crowds of coach.
On a crack-of-dawn flight from New York City to Seattle recently, I had my first ever, um, altercation with a seat mate. I'd almost missed the plane—I was that person staggering on board just before the doors closed—and I'm sure he thought he was going to have the row all to himself. I flashed him an apologetic smile…
There's no getting around the fact that flying sucks, and none of the changes (for anyone who can't afford a business class ticket) airlines have made in recent years have made it any more tolerable. Flying is especially crappy for heavier passengers, who are still subjected to the same discomfort and inconvenience…
Virgin America has managed to do the impossible: make it look, for a few minutes, that commercial flights are funky experiences for skinny tie-wearing stylish people having a great time instead of bleak desperate slogs between city outskirts punctuated by elbow fights with surprisingly aggressive Bible-reading…
Behaving decidedly unlike a protector of the skies, U.S. air marshal Adam Joseph Bartsch was arrested Thursday for allegedly using his cell phone to take photos of all that fun stuff happening up a woman's skirt in the Nashville, Tennessee airport.
And she's not the only one — there are 26 complaints on behalf of the elderly and people with disabilities who claim to have been abused by TSA agents at Phoenix's Sky Harbor airport.
A good trick to keep people from scrutinizing your unseemly behavior is to respond, "In this economy?" in an incredulous voice. For instance: if someone comes into my apartment and says, "Your air conditioner is attached to your windowsill with duct tape and it looks extremely terrible," I will reply, "Buying a…
