Some of the shortest flights in the world include “Loganair’s journey from Westray to Papa Westray in Scotland’s Orkney Islands (which can take as little as 47 seconds), and various five-to-ten minute flights that include LIAT airline’s five-minute flight from St. Kitts to Nevis and Olympic Air’s 10-minute trip from Karpathos to Kasos,” according to Travel + Leisure.
When I fly, I always prefer to sit in an aisle seat. There are a few reasons why the aisle is my choice.
First of all, I don’t want to bother anybody if I need to get up to go to the restroom or get something out of my bag in the overhead bin. I also like that I can stretch my leg into the aisle, even for a few seconds if the space feels a bit tight. The last reason I like the aisle is so that I can quickly get my bag out of the overhead bin upon landing.
Some of you may know that I love to visit McDonald’s when traveling to new places. I pretty much never dine at McD’s at home though.
The purpose of stopping in is to see if there are any local menu items worthy of a try. McDonald’s has also become something of a treat for Lucas. He knows that it isn’t healthy and we don’t go at home but while traveling he gets to go for a toy and some chicken nuggets.
Back in November news spread about an offer to get two free Uber rides at the Amex Centurion Lounge in New York’s LaGuardia Airport. The rides have to originate at the airport and go to a destination within the five boroughs.
When we arrived at the Centurion Lounge on the way to Toronto, I asked for an Uber code. The rep at the desk said that we could only get a code when arriving at the airport from a flight and not when departing on a flight.
I’ve recently written about some problems related to our short trip to Toronto, Canada.
The first problem occurred when we were supposed to go on the trip a few weeks back. I was checking my British Airways account when I noticed that our flight to Toronto had been cancelled. This led me to ask British Airways- Where’s My 40,500 Avios + $143.79.
