By web gangsta | Published:

What was the worst airplane experience you’ve ever had, that was entirely attributable to a fellow passenger?

A friend of ours told a story about one passenger who – after a series of unfortunate incidents in the airplane’s bathroom – ended up not wearing a shirt for the duration of the flight. How would you like to end up sitting next to THAT guy?  Oh, there was a logical explanation of how he ended up in that predicament, but did you really want to ask the question in the first place?

There are many ways to get sick while on an airplane.

The person next to you may have a cold and sneezes on you. The person in the seat before you on the earlier flight may have stuffed their snotty tissues into the magazine.

And let’s not talk about the poorly circulated air, the contaminated ice cubes, or the bathroom.

Going on vacation this year? What are the chances you’ll lose your luggage?


By web gangsta | Published:

Have you ever lost your luggage while on a trip?

We have – it was on the return trip, which made things easier; and the airline did deliver our bag within 24 hours….. ringing the doorbell at 3am.

We can’t complain – the bag did show up on our doorstep, late but unharmed.

The Top 15 Worst Airports for Holiday Travel


By web gangsta | Published:

As you get ready to travel for the holidays, maybe you should reconsider where you head out to for the family vacation.

We’ve all heard horror stories about hours (and days!) long waits at the airport as everybody rushes to get home to visit with family and friends. But maybe you should choose where you go a little better if you really want to save airport time at all.

10% of all Americans have done THIS on an airplane


By web gangsta | Published:

Airplane travel is expecting to get more and more crazy over the next year, if the FAA and others have their way to allow in-flight phone calls from happening.

Nobody wants to be sitting next to a flight talker – you know, the kind of person who likes to jabber throughout the flight.  And if that’s true, you know that nobody wants to be sitting next to a cellphone yakker… let alone two or more… for a four hour tour.

All we can tell you is that THIS WILL BE THE FUNNIEST (albeit gross) STORY YOU’LL READ TODAY.

To tell you anything more would be ruining the joy of the storytelling.  Be sure to read it out loud at your next dinner party, it’s that entertaining.

The question for Web Watch readers is: what would you do if you found yourself in that same situation?  Leave your ideas and suggestions below…

Would you rather use the bathroom or have Internet access?

When was the last time you flew on an airplane?

If you’re a recent traveller, then you already know all the ins-and-outs of airplane features and add-on costs. You carry your own luggage, bring your own snack, supply your own headphones.

For you, the airplane is merely a means of getting from Point A to Point B, and isn’t intended to be a luxurious place to relax for a few hours.

How to avoid getting sick when travelling by plane

It’s the holiday travel season, and tons of Web Watch readers are going to find themselves flying on a crowded plane, more than likely sitting next to somebody who’s just getting over the flu.

It’s like the giant lottery of luck, who you get to sit next to on the plane. Everybody eyes the other people at the terminal, wondering who gets to be lucky enough to sit next to that young attractive man or woman while avoiding eye contact with that overweight, unwashed hairy dude wearing a torn muscle shirt.

Eww. Continue reading HOW TO AVOID GETTING SICK WHEN TRAVELLING BY PLANE

The Airline Passenger’s Bill of Rights

Web Watch loves to travel, but we hate having to share our travelling space with strangers who don’t understand the RULES OF TRAVELLING.

It can be the basics – such as “don’t touch our luggage at baggage claim”, or “don’t hog all the electrical outlets at the airport”.

But it can also be the more courteous items, such as “don’t power-lean your airplane seat back onto our laptop so it cracks the screen.”  Yes, this has happened to us, and the airline says that there’s nothing they can do as it wasn’t their fault for the other passenger’s stupidity, negligence, and overall inconsideration.

There’s a reason why a product like KNEE DEFENDERS exists – it’s not to be rude to our fellow passengers by preventing them from relaxing, but it’s to protect our fellow passengers from pissing us off.  It ends up being a much more pleasant travelling experience for all involved when these are in play.
