Airline flights in much of the world are organised through a system called "hub-and-spoke," invented by U.S. airline Delta in 1955; made widespread in the USA after that country's deregulation of the airline industry in 1978; and commonplace in Europe as well since the European Union finally eliminated the last of its own air-industry restrictions in 1997. The model is named after the basic design of a traditional wheel, where the "hub" is a central airport and the spokes are the flights comin
Admittedly, inflight dining has not gotten a lot of love over much of the course of commercial aviation's history. Actually, early in that history, in the 1930s, multi-course meals were cooked onboard. However, as the postwar demand for flights took off in the 1950’s and 60’s and aircraft sizes (and therefore passenger numbers on each flight) grew, this soon proved impractical, and the complexity of cooking for hundreds of passengers in a tight space within a limited time frame prompted airline
At some point when you're approaching your plane you've surely wondered to yourself why the wings are curved, no? This design feature is called a winglet (also known as a wingtip device), and it's there not just to look cool but for an important purpose: to maximise aerodynamic efficiency. Interested in learning more? Read on!
If you're an aviation geek, you know that airplanes stay in the air thanks to the interaction of four types of physical phenomena:
Thrust - that related to the tractio
When booking flights, most of us look to save as much money as we can. But if you're looking to book cheap air tickets, you need to understand the various factors that influence the cost of fares.
The logical rule of thumb is that the greater the distance, the higher the ticket prices. Thus we conclude airplane ticket prices are directly proportional to the distance covered. But though distance is an essential factor, it's not the only one - the relative popul
Flying long haul (especially overnight) and worried about airplane seat comfort? After all, nobody wants to land at their destination feeling fatigued and uncomfrtable. But if you're traveling coach, low humidity along with narrow seats with minimal reclinability and legroom all add up to what can be a pretty unpleasant six to 18-plus hours.
Pick a Window Seat
You're far from alone if you find sleeping upright hard during a flight. You can certainly try a neck pillow or similar kind

Middle seats in the planes of some airlines are vacant. Passengers and crew members aboard cruise ships are socially distancing when possible and wearing masks. Some countries remain closed to non-residents, while others won’t allow people from the United States to enter.
Few aspects of life have been hit harder by the COVID-19 pandemic than travel, and there’s no end in sight. Or is there? The kinds of trips people take in the months ahead will be different than in the past. A number of t

With 70 destinations and 133 aircraft, Saudi Airlines is the third largest in the Middle East, with Jeddah, Riyadh, and Dammam as its main hubs. The airline pride itself on its network strengths to Asia, Europe, Africa and North America, and is aware of the responsibility of being a pioneer within its region. Here some of what you can expect on every Saudi Arabian flight:
Why Saudi Airline has been continuously voted one of the best airlines in the Middle East?
Saudi Airline is the favorite bec
One of the safest things you could be doing right now is flying. According to solid research, 3 miles on an Interstate highway puts you at the same risk of fatality as does a coast-to-coast flight. Every time you drive 3 miles on an Interstate highway (or about 1.5 miles urban) you have placed yourself at the same risk as taking a flight.
This statistical analysis was developed when traffic deaths rose sharply after 9/11, as people switched from flying to driving. Researchers Michael Sivak and Mi
When fear of flying develops, it's sometimes because there has been a bad flight. But, in many cases, difficulty begins for no apparent reason. The average age of onset is 27. The truth is, many of us become more anxious as we get older and more mature. As teenagers, when parents told us to be careful, we thought they were from some other planet! We thought bad things happen to other people, or in places far away.
As we grow older and (hopefully) wiser – or as something shocking h
If you've flown on any of American Airlines' 737s in the past year or two, you've seen bolted-in seat trays in rows 16 and 17 that prevent the middle seat from being occupied. The result: Seats A (window), C and D (aisle), and F offer extra elbow room and places for drinks and stashing small carry-ons. Me, I'm on a run, having recently taken four straight flights where I sat in the much-coveted Row 16.
Nice, but don't you find this somewhat strange?
After all, American Airlines' largesse would

A massive undertaking planned for the Frommers: Four months in Israel researching and interviewing for our book, an oral history about the miraculous nation as told by those who lived the experience. Very long trip from New York to Tel Aviv.
In our long travel writing career, we have flown all over on different airlines, some exceptional, some not so exceptional. We checked around for the most exceptional airline to accommodate our bountiful
Last month we examined some of the challenges facing the tourism industry in 2016. This month we examine some of the other challenges with which tourism leaders may have to contend in 2016. It should be noted that although the material in both the February and March editions is treated as separate challenges, there is often an interaction between them and these challenges are not stand alones but rather part of a total whole.
Be prepared for economic instability. We are now seeing the stock
