    It's not what you think: TSA agents at JFK Airport rescued a cat found in a traveler's luggage, but it wasn't caused by someone's cruelty. The orange tabby "belonged to someone else in the household" but apparently hopped into the traveler's suitcase when no one was looking, Transportation Security Administration spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein said. Good thing, too, given the temperatures of pressurized cargo holds during flights. The suitcase had been checked before a flight to Atlanta, with a connector to Melbourne Orlando Airport in Florida, Farbstein said. An alarm caught the attention of TSA baggage screeners who looked at the X-ray image and saw a clear feline outline. They contacted Delta, which paged its passenger, Farbstein said. The tabby was safely returned home, but the traveler had to rebook a flight for the next day, she said.
    Hotel and travel agency employees have revealed the ridiculous requests rich guests have made at luxury resorts across the world. Employees at hotels from Costa Rica to Switzerland described uber-rich guests spending $4million on shopping sprees, booking private flights for their pets, showering in Sanpellegrino, and demanding mermaids 'with gills' to swim in pools at their parties. The hospitality workers shared their salacious stories with the Washington Post just as the newest season of White Lotus - which viciously satirizes the antics of the rich on vacation - was released on HBO.  Angelica Bridges and Christina Stanton, both luxury hospitality workers, described the extravagant behavior of their uber wealthy guests A spokesperson for the Nightfall Group - a high tier travel concierge service - said a guest renting a Los Angeles mansion demanded she find them a mermaid in one hour who could swim in their pool for a party.

    A WOMAN who has travelled the world with just a tiny backpack has revealed her top tips for packing lightly. Brooke Schoenman, who lives in Australia, has travelled with a tiny 12l backpack - which is small enough to be considered a personal item on airlines. 3Brooke Schoenman has revealed how she travels the world with just a small bagCredit: Her Packing List 3Her 12l bag lasted her for three weeks during one particular US tripCredit: Her Packing List She explained that she decided to downsize her bag over the years after being frustrated with how heavy her previous luggage was. She told CNN Travel how her original 55l backpack - which is around the side of a carry-on bag for airlines - was too heavy when carrying it between hotels and airports. She said: "I didn't use all those extra things that I packed." It was during a three-week trip in 2016, when she travelled across the US, that she just took her 12l bag - and hasn't looked back since. Read more travel storiesPACK IT IN I'm a...
    As COVID-era restrictions relax and shortstaffed airlines welcome back travelers, unforeseen flight mishaps can often lead to financial compensation - with DailyMail.com now revealing how exactly you can claim your cash.  The new comes days after an Australian-American political pundit who found herself 'sandwiched' between two overweight passengers on an American Airlines flight last week claimed a $150 voucher for her trouble, after complaining to flight staff. With that said, issues such as delays, cancellations, and lost baggage - which have been rife as airlines struggle to retain workers in their return to pre-pandemic operations - could yield vouchers and even actual green, if you know who to ask. Cancelled Flights    In the event of a cancellation, for instance, be sure to turn down a voucher, as under federal law you are entitled to a full cash refund. Unlike the European Union, the United States does not have any regulations that protect passengers if their flight is called off- however, if you are flying to any where in Europe, you could earn a voucher of up to $700 on top of your refunded ticket....

    (CNN)United States border officials have a message for travelers who bring food items from overseas: Violations will cost you. Last month, a passenger traveling from Indonesia to Darwin Airport in Australia's Northern Territory was fined $1,874 after two egg and beef sausage McMuffins -- along with a ham croissant -- were found in their luggage. (Australian authorities had imposed tough new biosecurity measures on all arrivals after a foot and mouth disease outbreak in Indonesian livestock.) In a separate incident a few days earlier, an Australian woman was fined $1,844 after she forgot to declare a leftover Subway sandwich she bought in Singapore. In the past year alone, US border officials have fined passengers for bringing a wide range of undeclared food items in their luggage, including balut eggs, pork bologna and turkey ham. Border officials conducted "630,150 positive passenger inspections" in 2021, according to statistics for the fiscal year released by US Customs and Border Protection, and issued thousands of penalties and violations to travelers who failed to declare prohibited agriculture items.CBP officials at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in...
    EASYJET passengers should check the airline's hand luggage rules before travelling, with new restrictions enforced from last year. We've explained the amount of hand luggage and checked-in baggage you can take when travelling with easyJet, as well as how much it will cost. 2 We've explained the luggage rules for easyJet passengersCredit: Alamy EasyJet hand luggage rules New rules introduced by easyJet in December 2020 mean passengers can no longer take a suitcase into the cabin for free. Instead, standard passengers can only take a bag which fits underneath the seat in front, measuring 45cm x 36cm x 20cm, and this must include the handles and wheels. Thankfully, there is no weight limit, as it is just the size that will be checked, although passengers whose suitcases do not fit the rules will be charged £24 at the airport. Passengers who pay for Flexi tickets, Upfront tickets or Extra Legroom tickets can bring a suitcase into the cabin as well, measuring 56cm x 45cm x 25cm. If the bag is too large and has to be put into the cabin,...

Before my trip to Paris a few months ago, I was scrambling to find a solid carry-on hardshell suitcase that could not only transport my wedding day ensemble but would also meet Air France’s notoriously stringent size requirements. I like to travel in style so I was looking for something that was cute and fun but also functional—especially with such precious cargo in tow. Instagram had been targeting me with ads for a new Australian luggage brand, July for weeks and upon checking out their ultra-chic options, I decided the brand’s Carry-on Trunk suitcase was the one. I should mention that this style is slightly over AirFrance’s size dimensions for carry-on luggage, but I made it through without a problem; even though I got lucky , I wouldn’t advise risking it if you’re looking to avoid additional fees. Aside from its obvious beauty— the brand aptly describes it as “heritage trunk style with modern features”— with a sleek, glossy finish, this luxe...

    WANT to save a buck on extra carryons during your next vaca? A travel guru by the name of Ashlin has shared how she gets additional luggage past security at the airport. 2Ashlin filled a drawstring bag with extra clothes she wanted to bring on her flightCredit: TikTok/miniadvantures 2According to the traveling enthusiast, security doesn't care how many bags you have, but rather what's in themCredit: TikTok/miniadvantures In a video shared with her 167.9K TikTok followers, Ashlin revealed her crafty secret. For starters, she filled a drawstring bag with extra clothes. According to Ashlin, since security doesn't care how many bags you have, but rather what's in them, you shouldn't be on their radar.

    I go back and forth from Austin to Los Angeles at least every six weeks or so, and despite being a frequent flier, I absolutely refuse to check my luggage unless it’s absolutely necessary. Sure, flying with only carry-on luggage does indeed mean you have to cool with packing extra light (I usually stay at my sister’s house, so I just use all of her skincare and toiletries to avoid compliance with TSA’s strangely inconsistent liquid restrictions.) But traveling with a carry-on, whether it be soft or hard-shell isn’t exactly hassle-free either. I can’t even begin to count how many times I’ve begun the boarding process with an appropriately-sized carry-on and personal item (unless I’m flying Spirit, in which case it will likely be an unpleasant flight regardless) only to have flight attendants announce that there’s no more space in the overhead bins. However, I’ve also tried traveling with soft oversized weekender bags as my carry-on, which tend to hit all of the passengers in the face while I’m making my way to my seat. Clearly, also not the...

    The North Carolina Republican was caught with a gun at the airport for the second time in as many years. Rep. Madison Cawthorn (R-NC) was caught with a loaded 9-millimeter handgun on Tuesday at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, a local television station reported, in violation of federal regulations. It's the second time in as many years that Cawthorn has tried to bring a handgun into an airport. In February 2021, Cawthorn attempted to board a plane at Asheville Regional Airport with an unloaded 9-millimeter handgun in his carry-on luggage. At the time, a Cawthorn spokesperson said he had the gun in his carry-on by accident. Federal regulations prohibit passengers from carrying a gun in carry-on luggage. Passengers can only transport guns if they are unloaded and checked "in a locked hard-sided container," according to the Transportation Security Administration. Travelers must also declare that there is a firearm in the luggage, according to the TSA. This is not Cawthorn's first run-in with law enforcement in recent weeks. In March, Cawthorn was pulled over while driving in Asheville and charged with driving with a revoked...

    THE WORST airlines in the world have been revealed - and it isn't good news for two in the UK.

    BEFORE you check your luggage, you should check which airline you are flying with – as some are more likely to lose your bags. Certain airports are also worse than others for misplacing your baggage, according to new research. Getty Images - Getty 2 The worst airlines and airports for losing luggage have been revealed Luggage storage company Bounce analysed lost luggage on flights to and from the UK between 2016 and 2020 using data from the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). While the data only shows lost luggage which wasn’t resolved by airlines, the worst airline was found to be Royal Air Maroc, which often flies between the UK and Morocco. The airline had 9.7 per cent of lost baggage cases followed by Iberia with 6.69 per cent. However, popular low-cost airline Ryanair came in third (6.19 per cent), followed by Vueling (5.18 per cent) and Pakistan International Airlines (4.68 per cent).

    Tom Cruise will never forget the filming of ‘Mission Impossible 7’. Probably not for the better. His new film as Ethan Hunt seems to be under the influence of a curse because bad news continues to accumulate for the actor and soul of the action saga. The latest event took place in Birmingham, close to where they were filming. According to The Sun, Someone took Cruise’s car while he was filming. The car, a BMW X7, was hacked with a frequency cloner to emulate the digital key. The car was recovered a short time later not far from the place where it was parked, but the actor’s luggage was not in the vehicle. The stolen items are estimated to have a combined value of several thousand euros. Police have not yet announced any arrests. Cruise and the team of the film directed by Christopher McQuarrie were at the time of the robbery filming in a shopping center that they have turned into the Abu Dhabi airport. The car was parked in front of the Grand Hotel where the actor...

    With the COVID-19 vaccine getting into more arms each day, it seems that everybody is planning to get some travel in during the second half of the year. This would be a great time to upgrade your luggage. Eagle Creek’s Caldera collection is lightweight, durable, easy on the environment and, oh, it keeps track of the places you’ve traveled and will even help you find it if you get separated. Caldera collection bags come in two-wheel and four-wheel options. I chose the two-wheel, which features treaded rollerblade-style wheels that grip smooth airport floors and easily coast over cobblestone streets. Unlike most bags, the telescoping handle has only one extended position, which is fine for my 5'3" frame, but might cause issues for someone very tall. When not extended, the handle is sunken into the back and encased in a metal shell that protects it from bending and breaking.

    People’s lost and unclaimed airline luggage are being sold online. Unclaimed Baggage was founded in 1970 when Doyle Owens, an Alabama native, decided to buy unclaimed luggage from Trailways Bus Line in Washington, D.C., according to the company website. By 1978, Owens made his first partnership with an airline and eventually he had contracts with all U.S. airlines, the website said.
