So you fly when you #travel ? That's cool. But do you know what to do when shit hits the fan at an #airport ? You should know things like Rule 240 (+***** & +Alaska Airlines still have you covered.)

This is a must-have for any #traveler and road warrior from +OXO. I think this is the best mobile charging shelf on the market. #travel #hotels #techy
OXO's Plug-In Charging Shelf helps clean up charging cord mess. Phones rest on a non-slip try and excess cord is wrapped around the unit.

Everyone knows NOT to touch the #hotel remote before putting the shower cap over it. Now you control your hotel TV with this #app for #iPhone , #iPad and #Android . A ROAD WARRIOR MUST HAVE! #travel #travelapp

In the name of "transparency", Spirit Airlines responds to the DOT's new set of pro-consumer rules with A FEE. On this specific issue (holding a seat at a specific fare for 24 hours) I actually agree with Spirit, however their message is a farese and offensive to consumers. These rules aren't a "...cost impact to consumers"; your fee is Mr. Ben Baldanza. And to make sure they've got your attention their release even goes as far to say the rules could cost American jobs and they're the "good" airline going back to the FAA reauthorization bill. Hey +United Airlines +American Airlines Virgin America, +JetBlue, +Southwest Airlines and +Alaska Airlines thank you for not adding a fee to get lousy press because your IT departments had to make changes on the backend to allow passengers to hold a booking for 24 hours. Bottom line: Spirit is running such a tight ship that any cost is passed to the consumer. "Pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered."

A must read for anyone headed to the #airport  and #traveling  soon.  JohnnyJet: "Bring chocolates: I almost always bring two boxes of chocolates — one for the gate agents and one for the flight attendants because these people can make or break your trip."

Spirit Airlines denies US War vet a refund after being diagnosed with terminal cancer and placed in hospice. The airline places the burden on third-party +Travel Guard North America travel insurance, when the refund request came direct to the #airline . I know Spirit Airlines won't do the right thing, but I know Travel Guard always puts customers first. Please assist +Travel Guard North America . #Travel #Airlines #Insurance

Wowzers! Italy's #Rome sees snow first the first time in 26 years. Major sites like the Colosseum and Roman Forum close. Check out these pictures.
Traffic in the Italian capital ground to a halt as buses struggled to climb icy hills and authorities accustomed to a warm climate fought to cope.
