Travel Tabloids – Weekly Roundup

Travel Tabloids is a collection of the craziest travel related stories from around the web for the previous week or so.  Instead of gumming up your feed reporting on these as they happen we will post them all together, once per week.

I think people find these stories fun and interesting and hopefully it helps give you a little distraction in the middle of your work week.  If you find any crazy or funny articles that you think should make it into Travel Tabloids email me at


Pilot arrested for having loaded gun in carry-on at Florida airport – CBC

Bringing a loaded gun in a carry on…I don’t think he will have a job much longer.  TSA rules say a gun must be unloaded, in a lock box, and checked for it to be able to fly.  You would think a pilot of all people would know the rules.

Potty-Training Mom Gets Down to Business in the Middle of a Flight — to Passengers’ Horror – Cafe Mom

This is beyond crazy.  Take the training potty into the bathroom if that is what your child feels comfortable going on.  So many other/better options available.

United passenger forces flight return after allegedly hitting flight attendants, cursing at seat-back screen – Fox News

I imagine this woman will be hit with some serious fines/fees for the flight diversion and having all the passengers be delayed by a day.


That does it for this week’s edition of Travel Tabloids.  I hope you got a few chuckles and interesting reads out of the collection.  Hopefully it made the middle of the work week go a little bit faster.  Let me know if you find anything interesting via email ( or in the comments section.  Also let me know which story you found most interesting this week.
