World Cup Players Arrive in Style on Crazy Painted Airplanes

07/18/2014

The FIFA World Cup only comes around once every four years—so if you’re traveling to compete, it’s best to travel in style. A steady stream of painted planes landed in Brazil this week, delivering national teams from Argentina, Germany, Japan, and more; even the host country dressed up its carrier for the occasion.

A Business-Class Airline For the Price Of Coach? Believe It

07/18/2014

La Compagnie, a new boutique airline (remember those?) is launching flights between Newark and Paris on July 11. Though its layout is all business-class layout, flights are priced closer to what you might expect for coach. At a news conference to unveil the new name and livery (the line had been using the working name “Dreamjet”), co-founder Peter Luethi said roundtrip fares would range from $1,800 with restrictions to a fully flexible $4,600, and that prices could go even lower during sale periods. A check of major airlines on the same route in July showed the cheapest fare was approximately $1,600 roundtrip and more than $2,000 for premium economy. The line is currently awaiting approval from the U.S. Department of Transportation to advertise fares here, but already has the greenlight… Read More


Introducing the Airplane Seats of the Future

07/18/2014

A century ago, airline seating consisted of wicker chairs nailed to the cabin floor. Ever since, the industry has been struggling with the often conflicting goals of making customers comfortable and making a profit. Lately, the latter objective seems to be winning out, as new “slimline” seats, using lightweight materials to replace bulky frames, give airlines carte blanche to cram more coach flyers into the same space. And the gap between the haves and have-nots is widening as lines such as Emirates and Etihad add luxurious suites for those in the pointy end of the plane. (Asiana’s first-class Oz suites, pictured, boast beds that are seven-feet long.) So how will this paradox play out in air travel’s next century? Since every bit of extra weight in the cabin adds many… Read More


How to Deal with Unruly Kids on Airplanes

07/18/2014

Ombudsman has been a staple in the back pages of Traveler, answering readers’ travel questions and solving their dilemmas every month. Now you can enjoy him weekly in his new online column, Dear Ombudsman. I've settled into my flight to New Zealand, a book of Proust on my lap and thoughts of kayaking the Bay of Islands on my mind. I catch the eye of the passenger in the aisle seat, who's pretty cute. All in all, my flight's taking off nicely. Until I feel the consistent rhythm of the toddler behind me, kicking (and kicking and kicking) my chair. Mom and Dad have already raised their hands in surrender. Is there anything I can do to find my happy place again? Before you blow a gasket and inform the… Read More


Yes, You Can Rent a Private Jet…If You Have $50,000

07/18/2014

Can private jet travel really be affordable? Evidence is growing that it’s not just for the one-percent, thanks to a crop of new operators who are shaking up the stodgy corporate-jet business. By using smaller, more fuel-efficient aircraft, and innovations like ride-sharing, some carriers have made it possible to hire a jet for a weekend getaway to Maine or Palm Beach—a splurge, but one costing a fraction of, saying, buying a share in a new Lear Jet. One problem is testing out these claims: apples-to-apples comparisons between the competing jet services have historically been difficult. But several entrepreneurs are shaking up the business in ways that should make it more transparent. One notable example is JetSuite, which just introduced a new tool to let fliers calculate the total hit to… Read More


What Do You Think Of JetBlue’s New Premium Class?

07/18/2014

At a preview of the cabins at JFK airport earlier this week, the airline served guests a three-course brunch: A tiny brioche topped with goat cheese was followed by a choice of five entrees (guests get to pick three). Standouts were a watermelon, feta and basil salad; scrambled eggs with slab bacon and ratatouille; and a cheese & chive biscuit sandwich. Dessert was a fruit salad and lemon honey sorbet from Brooklyn’s Blue Marble Ice Cream. But the real show stopper is the new seats: The “Mint” cabins feature 16 seats, with 12 configured in the standard domestic business class 2-2 layout, alternating with two rows of 1-1 seating. Those separate single pods each have a door panel offering added privacy. With 15-inch flat screens, nooks for everything from your… Read More


Electric Planes? The Future of Airplane Technology

07/18/2014

It’s been more than a year since the Boeing 787 Dreamliner—the new composite-material airplane plagued by glitches and smoking batteries—was un-grounded by the FAA. But what’s up with airplanes since? DreamlinerMore than 20 million passengers have ridden the 787 since 2011, on routes like the brand-new Boston to Beijing, now feasible with the lightweight and relatively small airliner. A longer 787-9 was just certified by the FAA but it’s hard to detect the 20-foot difference unless you’re parallel parking the plane. Composite CompetitionThe upcoming Airbus A350 XWB is also made of fuel-efficient composite and claims to best the 787 in cost per seat per mile. Still, a Dreamliner-sized coming-out party is unlikely due to Emirates Airlines canceling its order of 70 planes in June. They may buy from Boeing instead.… Read More


What No Parent Wants to Hear on a Flight

07/18/2014

Travel writer Joanna Goddard (of A Cup of Jo fame) has spent more than her fair share of time finding clever ways to entertain her toddler and baby on a flight. You think you have it bad sitting in front of a screaming child? What about the parent trying desperately to ease the tension? We asked Goddard to offer some rules to play by when a fussy child starts to frazzle flyers. Parents, be cool. "You definitely get that look when you’re walking down the aisle—glares and stuff, sideways glances. We get on the plane at the last second to minimize our time in the seats. But going down the aisle with a toddler and baby and a bunch of crap—I know everyone is usually terrified when we sit down.… Read More
