Mar 21st 2011 10:48PM For people who go frequently, this is brilliant. Especially if one likes to have a few beverages in the room - store a couple of bottles of booze and you have your own minibar for $20/stay. Not to mention the couples who would rather leave certain "items" away from the potential stumbling upon by precocious children or nosy in-laws.
Oct 20th 2010 10:37AM I've subscribed to Groupon for a couple of months now. The only thing I've bought is a car wash near my office, which I have not cashed in yet.
Mar 7th 2010 1:32AM The truly obnoxious ones go on TV or radio and try to get themselves compared to the Clooney character. It was awfully nice of American to replace ERJ-145s with a 767-300 every time Clooney's character had a flight.
Mar 6th 2010 2:55PM I'll be willing to pay $15/hour to have an exit row seat if I can do it at time of booking. It means that I no longer have to worry at all about airline status, since one of the main reasons for me to keep status is to get exit row seating at booking.
Feb 16th 2010 5:35PM The problem with Jelly Belly is that their "variety pack" includes a peanut butter flavor, which is annoying to say the least for those with allergies.
Oct 21st 2009 10:59AM Wow, who peed in your corn flakes this morning? :)
But your list is of course accurate. One thing about the seating - much of it stems from concerns that people will sprawl out over 4-5 seats and just sleep. At a place like O'Hare 20 years ago, this was a legitimate concern because the homeless could get to the gate areas without a ticket or even a security screening. But now, it's just laziness.
Southwest has done a very good job in the last eighteen months providing gate seating which is actually functional and comfortable. They haven't provided enough of it, but I've spent three hours sitting at Manchester (NH) airport and the improved seating made a ridiculously huge difference.
Oct 17th 2009 2:09PM The headset deal is sold out, but according to Amazon it appears to takes a Quad-A battery, not a Triple-A.
Apr 18th 2009 5:45PM This is an interesting device, and I can see having one or two in my rollon for when I forget my travel-sized toothpaste. But why can't the toothpaste manufacturers figure out that if they made a 3oz toothpaste tube for the same size as the 4.6oz, people who travel for a living would buy it?
