2 – Looks like hotels are going to start charging you for conveniences just like the airlines. Say you land at 10 in the morning but check in is at 3 in the afternoon and you need to store your luggage… that might cost you $1 or $2 per bag. Need an in room safe? That might cost you $1.50 per night. Need to put YOUR water bottle in the mini fridge? That will cost you $25. Its bad enough they charge $20 for internet!

3 –  This seems line old news already and even MORE passengers are making big deals about it that they are making emergency landings...SO...This plane had to do an emergency landing because two passengers were fighting over reclining the seat. One passenger was using the Knee Defender to keep the person in front of him from reclining and the situation escalated causing the Denver bound flight to land in Chicago… Causing the flight to land at its final destination 1 hour and 40 minutes behind schedule.

{Knee Defender}
In this article he says he could have handled the situation better but he isn't going to stop using the device. 

4 – Over 200 crew members have quit Malaysia Airlines…can you blame them?

5 – Check out this cool video of world air traffic in a 24 hour period.

6 – A pilot gave his passengers and once in a lifetime experience when he took a detour to show them the eruption of the Bardarbunga volcano in Iceland!
