Routing Around Airline Stupidity

John Engler explains how he went to great lengths to avoid yield management gone wild with the help of his travel agent. Experienced travellers will tell you that the best price is not always available online... He also mentions the growing trend that business travelers are increasingly giving up on the much more expensive refundable tickets, another nail in the coffin of the traditional airline business model.

Top 10 Cities to Live in

Fine Living gives its list of the best 10 cities in the U.S. to live in. I'm sorry to see that NYC is not on the list and, I have to say, disappointed that San Francisco makes #1. I currently live in NYC and love it. I lived for four years in San Francisco, and while it's a fabulaous place to visit, and many people do love to live there, it didn't work for me. And...Las Vegas? It's the friggin' desert. These all look like great places to visit (well, okay, maybe not Westport, Connecticut), but I wouldn't want to live anywhere else right now but the greatest city in the world.

The Crazy World of 2003 Travel

This USA Today article takes a look back at travel in 2003. It was a challenging year with SARS, power outages and long lines. The article reminds us of some of the year's most interesting travel related incidents such as Charles McKinley shipping himself home in a box to save on airfare and Nathaniel Heatwole successfully smuggling box cutters and other items on board a Southwest Airlines flight after having alerted the government he was planning to do so. Read the article to find out more about why a horse was on a plane, the man who flew in a kilt and no underwear and the bible thumper who was duct-taped by fellow airline passengers.
