    When to document with a Photo?

    Everyday we read about videos and photos travelers take to document bad situations. When should you take a photo or video and how should you do it? If you are going to document situations, keep notes which include names of flight attendants, pilot etc. Your seat number and ticket number, which is the very long letters/numbers reference.

    When not to take a photo: 

    A manager/check in personnel has been horrible to you, ask for their card.…

    Five Summer Travel Tips Women Need

    Please share this with friends who make these mistakes. I do too on some Women’s Travel Group trips, so don’t fear you are the only one.

    Wrong clothes: Americans are used to frigid air conditioning in hotels and restaurants.

  • What Else Can We Say about United Airlines

    What Else Can We Say about United Airlines

    The Women’s Travel Group is horrified. How disgusting was the behavior of the so called “police” on the United flight that dragged a 69 year old doctor off the plane? How low will pretend “big boys” in their fake police-labeled jackets go? And how removed was the crew and captain, who so far are silent? To cap it all off, the CEO Oscar Munoz of United was rude, arrogant, and other words we cannot use here.

    From what we have read, the airline could have offered more $$$ to get passengers off the plane.…

    New Airline Regulations for Women

     

    There are new regulations and there are new headlines. Two girls were turned away from a United flight, wearing leggings.  They were traveling on airline passes, as a relative worked for United.  Airlines have strict dress codes for passengers on free tickets and leggings are definitely not allowed. This is a fake story. Read before you panic.

    Another new regulation is that all electronics (except phones and medical devices) must be packed,if you are flying from 8 airports in the Middle East on airlines which fly direct to the US.  …

    TSA and 5 Items Not to Wear or Carry

    The Trump Administration is considering 11% cuts in the TSA Budget. If that means faster yet more intrusive searches, women need to rethink what we wear and what we carry. Especially if you are traveling alone on one of our trips, you don’t want to be delayed while your carry on sits away from sight.
