- 10 suggestions for saving money at the Park Hyatt Maldives. It’s my favorite resort, but there are 5 reasons you may not even like it.
- Washington’s Dulles and National airports have new Uber and Lyft regulations going into effect November 1. That largely means they’ve agreed to call Uber legal, and extract new fees. And as consumers we should somehow thank the airports authority for giving us this ‘new’ option (that I’ve been taking to and from National airport for 3.5 years).
“For passengers at Reagan National and Dulles International, this change means they will see a broader variety of ground-transportation options quickly and readily available,” says Margaret McKeough, airports authority executive vice president and COO. “The new regulations are the result of months of study, public input and review in order to determine how best to provide our passengers with access to these new ground transportation options they desire, while ensuring the airport operates effectively and equitably for everyone.”
- What does the TSA think now that instructions on creating master keys for TSA approved luggage locks are so readily available?
The reported ability to create keys for TSA-approved suitcase locks from a digital image does not create a threat to aviation security..These consumer products are ‘peace of mind’ devices, not part of TSA’s aviation security regime
