Take your seat...while you still have one!

Paul Heymont ·
Aircraft designers are always busy trying to figure out the best way to get the most passengers in without actually provoking revolt or suffocation...and the past few days bring fearsome news on that front. Included in the roundup are dead-serious proposals to stack seats in the main cabin, to sell passenger space in the hold below the cabin, and even to squeeze business-class seats into a 12-across configuration. Not even the rich, it seems, are immune to the trend. The stacked-seat idea...

Re: Big change ahead for American's AAdvantage?

Travel Rob ·
It looks like the rumors are true and American will join the other airlines and will soon shift to miles earned based on ticked price, instead of mileage flown. From AA: "In the second half of 2016, award miles for travel on American marketed flights will be calculated based on what you pay for your ticket (base fare plus carrier-imposed fees, excluding any government-imposed taxes and fees) and your elite status; the higher your status, the more you’ll earn. 5 miles/U.S. dollar – AAdvantage...

You're not really a town in Canada unless you have a Tim Hortons. It's Canada's favorite cup of coffee, and a great place to grab a coffee, drink or something to eat when doing a road trip in the Great White North.
