Where Do We Stand With Getting A Refund From Avianca?

Last week I wrote about how Avianca had canceled our flight in Ecuador from Guayaqil to the Galapagos.

When I found out that our flight was canceled (we would’ve canceled if the airline didn’t), Avianca stated that the ticket would remain valid until we had a new travel date.

When an airline cancels a flight, I think it’s fair for us to expect a refund not the opportunity to pick a new future travel date. Continue reading Where Do We Stand With Getting A Refund From Avianca?

I recently wrote about a sweet deal, NYC- Amsterdam for $356 roundtrip.

While booking this deal with Norwegian Air, I had some concerns due to their strict baggage rules. The airline clearly states restrictions like the max size your bag can be and the allowed weight you can carry on for flights.

Due to this, I decided to pay to use the overhead bin during the flight. I figured that for an additional $12 each way, it was worth it to pay to bring a rollaboard. Continue reading How Was It Flying Norwegian Air With Their Strict Baggage Rules

Delta Adding Spiked Seltzer To Flights Starting In March

Spiked SeltzerA few months back, I wrote about how Jetblue would be the 1st airline to offer hard seltzer at 35,00 feet!

It looks like another US airline will soon be offering spiked seltzer.(Maybe others already do, too.) Continue reading Delta Adding Spiked Seltzer To Flights Starting In March
