Aug 5th 2012 11:58PM When onboard a commercial flight, one MUST follow the instructions of the flight crew. Frankly, he should not have been accommodated on a later flight. If he did threaten to "smack" a crew member he should have been arrested.
Apr 15th 2012 6:42PM I find the article almost incomprehensible. Is it about Titanic, current safety at sea, or what? And on today, the 100th anniversary of the enormous horror and loss of life, the fake video of the "raising of the Titanic" is in very poor taste. I'm surprised that Gadling would host this.
Mar 13th 2012 5:22PM You forgot the ONLY civilized solution, the Japanese bidet toilet seat. No Japanese home is without one. Touchless wash and dry. Yes, it would take several years to achieve the break-even, but many public facilities in Japan use the bidet seats. Remember, American pioneers used corncobs...
Jan 13th 2012 4:16PM The French don't shop for bread just once a day, they often shop more often than that. When my brother lived in Paris, he ran downstairs for bread 2-3 times a day. Now that's fresh bread.
Jan 9th 2012 4:00PM Your article fails to mention the single most important factor in a comfortable longhaul flight: seat and legroom. I realize the title of the piece is "in-flight services," but the most miserable flight for comfort I ever endured was Singapore Air from SFO-SIN and back. The food was good, service was attentive, but I was about to die from the horrible seat pitch and confinement. The in-flight entertainment system is something I never even pay attention to. Everyone has iPads, laptops, and iPods now. In-flight entertainment is way down on my list for selecting an air carrier.
Jan 7th 2012 1:22PM We have a mesh shopping tote for our dog's "suitcase." It holds: vet paperwork proving shots, collapsible water bowl, food, treats, toys, brush, paper towels, bandanas in a ziploc, spare collar and leash, extra plastic poop bags, 2 bottles of water (refill from tap). We stay at La Quinta hotels, pet-friendly and no additional fees for pets. We take his bed and a towel, he rests on the bed in the truck and uses it at night in the room. We have a plastic tray at home that holds his food and water bowls. We take the tray and bowls inside the hotel each night. If the trip is more than 3 days, we take his food vault.
Dec 20th 2011 11:30AM Where are the cooking classes, should definitely be in this article. Although I won't be going back to the one I took in Ubud. Everyone mixed the food with their UNWASHED hands. It was so disgusting, I left early so I wouldn't have to eat the finished products.
Nov 27th 2011 4:21PM The people who "climb" Everest are the Sherpas who ascend at the beginning of the season and fix ladders and ropes. Everyone else just follows their pathway.
