Their employees? Not so much. Carriers are discouraging their staff from using their employee perks for travel to and from some of Europe's biggest airports, warning that getting a seat home will be difficult. The moves come as airport labor shortages and industry strikes have made European summer travel challenging, just as airlines were hoping to capitalize on higher bookings after a pandemic slump of more than two years. American Airlines has barred staff from using their flight benefits for personal travel to and from London Heathrow through "at least" Sept. 11 and had temporarily banned the use of those perks from Amsterdam, through July 31. United Airlines has prohibited the use of buddy passes — deeply discounted flights for friends and family — on trips through London Heathrow through at least the end of August. United is also telling staff...
    Custom and Border Protection officers at Washington Dulles International Airport seized over $95,000 from recent travelers, officials said. Airport officials stopped a couple headed to Lebanon who surrendered over $29,000 in unauthorized currency on July 21, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. They then recovered $32,000 of unauthorized currency from a family going to Nepal on July 26, authorities reported. On July 31, a South Korean family surrendered over $34,000 to officers upon arrival from South Korea, officials said. U.S. Customs and Border Protection said that more currency was discovered when officers examined the families' bags, before they let the individuals continue to their destinations. Although there is no limit to the amount of foreign currency travelers can bring to and from the U.S., travelers must report all currency of $10,000 or more to airport officials, authorities said. The airport officials said punishments for this crime can range from vacation interruptions, to seizure of all currency, to criminal protection for bulk currency smuggling.

    SUMMER holidays to far-flung destinations are in JEOPARDY as travel chaos puts British Airways at risk of suspending long-haul flights. The airline may be forced to pause the sale of flights to far-away destinations such as New York, spiralling holiday disruptions further out of control, The Telegraph reported. PA 2 Even more BA flights could be grounded thanks to the passenger number restrictions at Heathrow Airport BA announced yesterday that it had stop selling short-haul flights for an extra week due to the current cap on flights at Heathrow Airport.

    British Airways said the move — which will run until Aug. 8 — was taken in response to Heathrow's request.Nicolas Economou | NurPhoto | Getty Images LONDON — British Airways suspended the sale of short-haul flight tickets departing from London's Heathrow after the airport asked airlines to limit new bookings. In a statement Tuesday, the airline said the move — which will run until Aug. 8 — was taken in response to Heathrow's request. "We've decided to take responsible action and limit the available fares on some Heathrow services to help maximise rebooking options for existing customers, given the restrictions imposed on us and the ongoing challenges facing the entire aviation industry." Heathrow Airport said it was happy its biggest airline followed the request: "We are pleased to see action from British Airways, acting responsibly and also putting passengers first."

    LONDON (AP) — British Airways said Tuesday that it’s suspending sales of short-haul flights from London’s Heathrow Airport for about a week, a response to the airport’s request to limit bookings to help ease travel disruptions caused by booming demand and staff shortages. Restrictions on ticket sales for domestic U.K. and European services departing from Heathrow, Britain’s busiest airport, are in place until Monday. Passengers, however, can still book short-haul flights to the airport. The airline said it was taking action after Heathrow capped daily departing passenger numbers at 100,000 until Sept. 11. The airport asked airlines to stop selling tickets and cut flights, stirring criticism. Passenger traffic at Heathrow and other European airports has boomed after two years of pandemic travel restrictions, but airports and airlines haven’t been able to keep up because they laid off many thousands of staff amid the depths of COVID-19. “As a result of Heathrow’s request to limit new bookings, we’ve decided to take responsible action and limit the available fares on some Heathrow services to help maximize rebooking options for existing customers,...
    The pilot of a small twin-engine plane is heard in a 40-minute recording asking air traffic control for help to making an emergency landing before his 23-year-old co-pilot jumped or fell from it at 3,500-feet.  Charles Hew Crooks did not have a parachute on before he plunged to his death in North Carolina on Friday, officials said. In the 40-minute exchange between the unidentified pilot and air traffic control, there is no mention or hint of Crooks falling from the plane. The pilot can be heard saying: 'Emergency, we've lost our right wheel. We would like to proceed to Raleigh and make a landing at Raleigh.' He adds:  'We have two persons on board. We have enough fuel on board that will last us for the next four hours.' Air Traffic control responds: 'Raleigh-Durham Airport or Raleigh-General?'  'Rogers resume all navigation to Raleigh-Durham Airport.' 'More clarification, did you try landing on Raeford West?' he asks. 'Did it [the wheel] fall off while still in the air?'  'We were attempting to land,' the pilot said. 'We made contact with the ground and...
    AN emergency at Raleigh-Durham International Airport has prompted a massive search after a passenger allegedly jumped from a plane before landing without a parachute. Cops are working with the FAA and have said that there is a "large search area" as they continue to look for the missing person. 1A plane made an emergency landingCredit: WRAL The plane landed in the grass after skidding off of the runway at Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

    Police in Pennsylvania have made an arrest in the unsolved 1975 murder of a 19-year-old girl after tracing the suspect's DNA to a thrown-out airport coffee cup.  Lindy Sue Biechler was murdered in her own home in Lancaster County in December 1975. Her aunt and uncle found her with 19 stab wounds to her chest, neck, back and upper abdomen. She had returned from a trip to the grocery store just minutes before hand, with a violent struggle taking place in her kitchen. One of Biechler's own knives was sticking out of her neck, with a tea wrapped around the wooden handle, according to the District Attorney's Office. Despite a decades-long search for answers, police were unable to make a breakthrough until DNA testing in the late-1990s identified a possible Italian-American killer. And when the case was taken on by Lancaster County's Cold Case Unit in 2019, investigators' intrigue focused on Lindy's ex-neighbor David Sinopoli. Lindy Sue (left) was found dead in 1975 with a kitchen knife sticking out of her neck. No arrest had ever been made during the...

    A family bound for an Ethiopian vacation lost a day of their trip and more than $27,000 after they failed to disclose that they were carrying enough cash to buy a new Hyundai Santa Fe in their luggage.  U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents said the family didn't disclose the cash as they went through a pre-flight screening. The father — a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Ethiopia — told agents he was carrying $8,000 on him, the agency said in a news release. The man's eldest son also admitted to having $8,000 in cash.  But customs agents found an additional unreported $11,000 in their luggage, the release said.  Carrying large amounts of cash on a flight isn't illegal. But you must report to customs officials anything above $10,000. You also don't need to explain how you got the money in most cases as long as you disclose the amount on a form, said Steve Sapp, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesperson. Customs officers didn't release the family's name because they didn't break any laws. The family can get their money back,...
    New York (CNN Business)Flying in and out of the Dubuque, Iowa, airport on the banks of the Mississippi has been a breeze for the 100,000 residents of the county. The airport is small and easy to get through. Parking is free.That all is set to end this September.American Airlines (AAL), the only carrier providing regular service to Dubuque, is dropping its routes due to a lack of pilots needed to staff the regional jets serving the airport. The airline is also dropping service in Islip, New York, on eastern Long Island, Ithaca, New York, the upstate home of Cornell University, and Toledo, Ohio, for the same reason. It called the moves a "difficult decision."For most of the residents and businesses using the Dubuque airport, the chief alternative is going to be a three-hour drive to O'Hare Airport in Chicago, which is anything but easy to navigate or park at cheaply. Much of the drive isn't even on interstate highways.They can drive to a few other regional airports, but all are more than an hour away, and flights there would likely...

    Australian baby formula company Aussie Bubs sent 85,000 tins of its formula to Ohio's Rickenbacker International Airport on Friday morning. This comes as part of President Joe Biden's Operation Fly Formula but is among the first that will go directly to 4,000 Walmart stores across the Midwest.

    DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — An Israeli airstrike that struck Damascus International Airport caused “significant” damage to infrastructure and rendered the main runway unserviceable until further notice, Syria said Saturday. The statement by the Transportation Ministry was the first detailing the extent of damage from Friday’s airstrike. Syrian media reported earlier that Syria suspended all flights to and from the airport and the ministry confirmed all flights were suspended because “some technical equipment stopped functioning at the airport.” Israel’s military has declined to comment on the airstrike. Saturday’s statement said the runway had been damaged “in several locations” and that the strike also hit the airport’s second terminal building. “As a result of these damages, incoming and outgoing flights through the airport were suspended until further notice,” it said. The airport is located south of the capital Damascus where Syrian opposition activists say Iran-backed militiamen are active and have arms depots. Israel has for years carried out strikes in the area, including one on May 21 that resulted in a fire near the airport leading to the postponement of...
    An American Airlines passenger is suing the company following a 17-day stint in jail after the airline wrongly identified him as a shoplifter who stole from a store in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport. The lawsuit, filed in the judicial court of Tarrant County, Texas, claimed Michael Lowe was wrongfully detained in a New Mexico jail for over two weeks in “grossly unsanitary conditions” a year after the incident occurred. Lowe also claimed he was not told what the charges were until after he contacted a detective at the Dallas airport. WATCH: THIS GROUP THINKS YOU SHOULD BOYCOTT AMERICAN AIRLINES “I’ve never heard of this fact pattern in my life or my career,” Scott Palmer, Lowe’s attorney, told the Fort-Worth Telegram. “If it can happen to him, it can happen to anyone.” The reported incident occurred in May 2020, when Lowe was on a layover in Dallas, awaiting his next flight to Reno, Nevada.

    Everyone knows not to play with knives – but one man from Virginia clearly didn't get the memo when he recently tried to board a plane.  Officers uncovered 23 prohibited weapons from the Alexandria man's carry-on bag at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on Wednesday, May 4, the TSA said on their website.  The weapons consisted of various knives including scalpels, a switch blade, one dagger, a pair of brass knuckles and several martial arts throwing knives, the TSA said. The man was later issued a citation by airport police.  "TSA would have had no issue had all 23 of these items been packed in a checked bag," the agency added, "but passengers certainly cannot carry these types of weapons into the cabin of an aircraft." The TSA also mentioned the man could have avoided this happening by downloading their app that tells passengers what they can and can't bring onboard an aircraft.  "That would have sharpened his knowledge as to what can and cannot go into a carry-on bag," the TSA concluded. 
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi suggested that House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was a hypocrite for voicing concerns his members could incite violence on a private call, while bemoaning safety measures Democrats have put in place. 'It was interesting to me that the leader talked about the concern that he had … about his members causing danger here and at the same time complaining that we had magnetometers to keep guns off the floor of the House,' Pelosi said during her weekly press conference on Friday.  Earlier this week, The New York Times released audio clips from a January 10, 2021 call where McCarthy is heard discussing with House Minority Whip Steve Scalise and Rep. Liz Cheney, among others, rhetoric from certain Republican members that concerned him in the aftermath of the January 6 Capitol attack.  'Tension is too high, the country is too crazy,' McCarthy warned on the January 10 call. 'I do not want to look back and think we caused something or we missed something and someone got hurt. I don't want to play politics with any of that.'  House...
    Authorities cited Rep. Madison Cawthorn for trying to bring a handgun aboard a flight Tuesday. The North Carolina Republican allegedly tried to bring a 9 mm handgun past security at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, according to WSOC TV. The Transportation Security Administration confirmed it confiscated a gun, and other sources confirmed to the outlet that it belonged to Cawthorn. MADISON CAWTHORN IMPLICATED IN POTENTIAL INSIDER TRADING SCHEME, EXPERTS SAY This would be the second time Cawthorn has tried to bring a gun past security, the first being at the Asheville Regional Airport in February 2021. He did not face any charges in that instance, though the offense could carry up to a $10,000 fine for a loaded weapon and a criminal referral. Cawthorn, at 26 the youngest House member, has had several run-ins with the law regarding traffic violations in the past several months for speeding and driving under a revoked license. Cawthorn had a court date earlier this month as well as two more in May. His legal troubles may also now extend to...
    A Breeze Airways airplane on the tarmac at Tampa International Airport (TPA) in Tampa, Florida, U.S., on Thursday, May 27, 2021.Matt May | Bloomberg | Getty Images Breeze Airways plans to add eight flights, including service to California, from Westchester County Airport, a bet that the start-up can win over suburbanites seeking to avoid a trip to the New York City area's mega-hubs. The airline, launched by JetBlue Airways founder David Neeleman, is offering nonstop routes from Westchester to Los Angeles; San Francisco; Charleston, South Carolina; Jacksonville, Florida; Savannah, Georgia and Norfolk, Virginia. It will also offer a flight with one stop to New Orleans. The announcement comes a month after Breeze Airways said it would nearly double its network this year. The Westchester flights are part of a strategy from upstarts like Breeze and Avelo Airlines to capitalize on demand from travelers in smaller cities. "They want to go nonstop, and they want to do it more efficiently," Breeze CEO Neeleman said in an interview. Neeleman said the strategy is focused on leisure travelers, noting that many business travelers...
    The Biden administration has resumed its secret charter flights of underage migrants from the U.S.-Mexico border to Westchester, New York.  The New York Post, which first wrote about the flights last October, reported that another group of young, undocumented immigrants from El Paso, Texas landed at the Westchester County Airport on Thursday night.  The children then boarded three buses waiting for them, with one traveling to the Walt Whitman Service Area in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, where several teens disembarked and met up with adults who were waiting for them just after midnight.  Former Westchester County Executive Rob Astorino, a Republican gubernatorial candidate, had filmed another set of young migrants leaving the airport last week as part of the after-dark flight program, which was reportedly suspended following the Post's investigation last year.  'The resumption of flights is a big middle finger to hard-working New York taxpayers,' Astornio told the Post. 'It's frustrating. It's outrageous.'  A group of young migrants coming from El Paso, Texas, were spotted arriving at Westchester Airport in New York on Thursday night as the Biden Administration resumes its...
    A Maryland man seemed to skip right past the barbecue and head straight to takeout when he brought home three pounds of bat meat from a recent trip from Ghana The Germantown was stopped by agents at Washington Dulles International Airport on April 5, US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said.  While the bushmeat is a popular protein staple in Africa, it is illegal to bring it to the Unites States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This is because bats are known for spreading diseases such as Ebola, CBP said.  “Customs and Border Protection agriculture specialists play a very challenging frontline role in protecting the public, our nation’s agricultural industries, and our economic vitality every day against the deliberate or accidental introduction of potentially crippling animal diseases," said CBP's Area Port Director for DC Daniel Escobedo.  “CBP strongly encourages all international travelers to know what they can and cannot pack in their baggage before visiting the United States.” CBP seized the beat meat, along with 12 pounds of tetraplura, eggplants and turkey berries, and turned it...

    A family of desperate Ukrainian refugees seeking safe haven with a British family were turned away from a Ryanair flight – because they couldn't print out their boarding pass in advance. Venera Muminova, 30, her husband and two-year-old daughter, fled Kyiv after their house was destroyed by Russian shells several weeks ago and made the hazardous journey to Poland. But the British hosts who offered to take them in under the Home Office scheme, Michelina and Richard Primrose, today condemned the budget airline for 'making a bad situation worse by putting a barrier of red tape in their way.' Beautician Venera and her 31-year-old husband Azamat and their daughter Kamila had spent weeks in a Polish hostel and were almost out of money when they turned up this morning at Krakow airport for their 6am Ryanair flight to safety.

    SANCTIONED Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is no stranger to paying big money to sign players... and to order takeaways. The billionaire Russian once splashed out a whopping £40,000 to have sushi delivered to him in Azerbaijan, all the way from LONDON. 1Abramovich once spent £40,000 to have sushi delivered from one side of Europe to the otherCredit: Getty Back in the early 2000s Abramovich had a craving for the Japanese cuisine from the now closed Ubon restaurant in Canary Wharf, while sat 2500 miles away in Baku, capital of Azerbaijan. And the hankering for sushi was so severe he paid to have plates of it flown over to him by private jet, as reported at the time by The Sunday Times. Abramovich is claimed to have instructed an aide to put in an order for him and his pals worth £1,200. It was then transferred by chauffer-driven limousine to Luton airport, whisked through security and onto a waiting private jet.

    Frontier Airlines passengers at Denver’s airport would step on the tarmac to get on and off planes under a new plan. The proposed concourse project at Denver International Airport would give Frontier exclusive use of 14 gates at a “ground-load facility.” Passengers would board and leave the plane not by jetways but by a ramp to the plane’s front door or stairs to the rear. Letting passengers use two doors would mean quicker turnaround times between flights, cutting the time by nearly half in some cases, a Frontier executive said. Boarding from the tarmac is rare for major airlines at U.S. airports. It still happens at Hollywood Burbank and Long Beach; San Jose Mineta discontinued the practice for most carriers when its new terminal opened in 2010. Frontier, however, is not the only one interested in reviving the practice. Since 2018, Southwest Airlines has tested “dual door” protocol at San Jose and Sacramento, as well as Burbank and Long Beach. It also remains common overseas. “Anybody who travels internationally — within Europe, you’re going to see ground boarding just...
    An ex-con from New York admitted trying to slip a loaded, stolen gun through the security checkpoint at Newark Airport late last year, authorities said. Desmond Herring, 48, of Newburgh, NY made a beeline for his gate when a TSA officer staffing the checkpoint X-ray monitor found the loaded weapon -- along with boxes of ammo -- in his carry-on bag on Nov. 29, 2021, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) said. Port Authority police collected the bag and examined its contents, the TSA said at the time. Along with the 9mm pistol were 10 rounds loaded into a magazine, along with another 150 rounds, U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger said. Herring was prohibited from having a firearm following a 2010 federal conviction for drug dealing, Sellinger said. A TSA supervisor and officer followed Herring, who grabbed his other belongings and tipped away in an effort to still make it aboard his scheduled flight to Atlantic, GA, the agency said. They kept an eye on him, making sure that he didn't interact with anyone or try to hand off or leave...
