Apr 30th 2013 3:09PM Trip it is not much good for detailed cruise itineraries. You must do a manual input. Some locations are not available etc. It's a shame.
Oct 5th 2012 7:37PM Flight from YVR to LIH... Air Canada. 2 years ago. Economy...31" Seat Pitch. I am 6'5". I do not lean back in deference to the passenger behind me. Flight was 5.5 hours on a 767. Elderly lady in front of me slams and jams her seat back several times. Turns back and says "move your legs". With my height and the seat pitch it was impossible. This continued for 45 minutes. The old lady then complained to a FA that I would not move. The FA advised her that there was no room for he to decline. The old lady got very upset then started to tell me that I should have booked a business class seat if I need all this room. Turns out the old bat was having a nic fit and couldn't wait to light up as soon as she could.
Another AC flight. 8 years ago. YVR to YYZ. Red eye. I had a bad cold but need to be in YYZ for an early morning meeting. me still 6'5". Seat pitch 29". Pregnant lady in front of me insisted her seat recline. Despite the actual pain I was in the flight crew refused to do anything. Seat was reclined so far back that the meal (this is when they served meals) tray could not fully deploy. As my passive aggressive self kicked in I insisted the meal and drinks be placed in the aisle beside me therefor interrupting any thing the fa's did for the rest of the flight. I was sure to ask for water every 20 minutes and bash the seat in front of me every 5 minutes.
The wonders of travel!

Aug 13th 2012 9:03PM Plan for tickets as far in advance as you can. Take advantages of plans like Swiss rail that allow foreigners to buy extremely reduced passes or in Belgium where over 65's can travel for almost nothing. Research research research..better yet use a reputable travel agent with the added bonus of guaranteed performance!
Aug 13th 2012 9:00PM The airlines have the information of who is who and where they are sitting. You would think that seats would automatically be blocked when there are minors traveling alone. Expensive mistake otherwise.
Mar 12th 2012 9:16PM Choked that you have targeted the obese in society. It is not a choice it is a condition. I don't see drunk captains, stupid airline execs or misogynistic legislators on the list. Shame.
Mar 1st 2012 8:15PM Why risk it?
Jan 4th 2012 6:36PM One should note that no other industry abuses their customers like airlines. You will never go into a starbucks and order a $1.81 coffee and pay $7.95 for it.
