While waiting for a flight, it’s always nice to have access to an airport lounge.

During our 5 Weeks in the Pacific, the Michael W Travels family made many visits to the Fiji Airways Tabua Lounge in Nadi, Fiji. It was awesome to have free WiFi, drinks, decent food and a comfy place to relax. (Too bad we had to visit a temporary lounge while the new one is being built.)

On the way home Kim noticed a cute friendly dog playing with another family. Lucas really loves dogs so Kim suggested that he go over and ask to pet the dog.

This turned out to be a simple request considering the dog was walking around the airport with its owner as part of the Paws for Love program! Continue reading Meeting A Paws For Life Therapy Dog at BUF Airport

The Michael W Travels family recently got back from an awesome little trip to Ireland.

While Dublin is usually a quick flight from NYC, we flew on connecting flights each way. A small inconvenience is worth it to save on the cost of a flight, if you ask me…

During our travels we got to visit a Priority Pass lounge in three airports. Two of the lounges were solid offering food, snacks, drinks and a place to relax.

The other Priority Pass lounge was quite different and possibly the most interesting one that I’ve ever visited. Continue reading The Most Interesting Priority Pass Lounge I’ve Visited

It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood and one local man recently started a petition through Change.org, to change the name of Pittsburgh Airport.

For those of you not so familiar with the line “It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood”, it’s from the children’s TV show Mister Rogers Neighborhood.

The show was created by Fred Rogers. He starred in it for over 30 years. When I think of the show, the famous red sweater (shown above) comes to mind. Continue reading Petition Created to Rename Pittsburgh Airport After Mister Rogers
