Introducing Fair Air

Challenged to create a "perfect" airline for business travelers, I've "invented" the carrier Fair Air.

The Flight Stuff

Flying Fourth Class

Lufthansa and Cathay Pacific offer excellent premium economy classes, but outliers matter, too.

Carry On Carrying On

Airline mishandled bag rates are rising. You should be carrying on. Here's how to do it easily.

Hiding From Airlines

Why is the Snidely Whiplash of airlines, United, suing a 22-year-old techie over an old fare trick?
