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/or 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 email@example.com.
‘Unacceptable’: Women Cyberflashed On British Airways Flight Criticise Airline Response – Huffington Post
This one is a little older but I thought it was worth sharing. I have never used AirDrop and not sure I see the purpose of it but it seems like there are more and more AirDrop while flying related stories.
SOUTHWEST AIRLINES APOLOGIZES FOR EMPLOYEE WHO MOCKED NAME OF 5-YEAR-OLD GIRL CALLED ABCDE – Newsweek
Lack of parenting naming skills aside you can’t mock a customer. And then to take a picture of the boarding pass and post it on social media. I mean how dumb can you be? I hope Southwest fired her immediately. You can not share customer information no matter what industry it is.
Former NBA star sues United Airlines over in-flight ‘race baiting’- New York Post
United really does seem to have a toxic culture. I avoid them at all costs. The lack of common decency and problem solving skills of some of these flight attendants is just amazing.
American Airlines says video footage proves passenger was not abandoned in wheelchair – USA Today
The story takes an interesting twist. Not sure why the family would go on the news and tell a fabricated story but it looks like they may be busted.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) or in the comments section.
