Travel RoundUp

1 A group of passengers is suing Carnival Cruise Lines for damages after an engine fire left their ship adrift for days. They are asking the company to pay $5,000 a month for the rest of their lives for medical bills and mental anguish. I think this is a bit much!

2 – A US Airways plane had to abort its takeoff after its nose gear collapsed while leaving Philadelphia International Airport, sending the plane skidding off the runway. Click link to see video!

4 – A Delta flight lost part of its wing during a flight from Orlando to Atlanta! Scary!

5 – I thought these pictures of North Korea from space were really cool.

– An eight-car Chicago commuter train ran across a platform and scaled an escalator at an underground station at Chicago O’Hare…. Go home subway train, you’re drunk! 

– Airlines are now moving to an even tighter economy class, "Slim-fit". From what I can tell they pretty much look like glorified lawn chairs... Check out the video at the bottom of this page link
