Hey, there Travel Tribe! Hope you’re having a great week so far. I just wanted to catch you up on what’s happening in travel hacking news today. There seems to be a lot of news around issues with planes this week, but I’m sure you’ve seen enough of that elsewhere. Let’s check out these articles that may be useful for travel hacking, instead.
This article shows which airlines have the most and least legroom. It also compares how the sizes of seats in many of the airlines have changed over the past 30 years. It’s kind of funny to me that over that 30 years while people seem to be getting fatter, the seats are getting smaller.
Is Google going to make a run at in-flight wi-fi? Well, it’s uncertain, but this article explains why it may be a potential for the tech giant. I’d have to say, more options for wi-fi on planes would be a good thing. Sometimes in-flight wi-fi is a bit too pricey for my budget and maybe this will help.
To end today’s Travel Hacker News, I’ll leave you with this weeks travel contests and giveaways. You may think you’ll never win one because the odds are so bad, but it’s not true. Someone’s gotta win… why not you. I used to sign up for every travel giveaway I saw and I surprisingly won 5 or 6 giveaways, including 100,000 Starwood points which ended up giving me about 10 free nights at some great hotels.
Good luck! Talk to you next time. If you missed the last Travel Hacking News it can be found here.
