Vice President Joe Biden : “LaGuardia a third-world country”

That long-awaited makeover can’t come quickly enough.
New York City’s three main airports are regularly ranked on lists of airports travelers try hardest to avoid, but it’s LaGuardia that nearly always lands the dubious honor of being named the worst of the worst. (Its detractors include no less than Vice President Joe Biden, who once famously likened LaGuardia to “a third-world country.”) read more

Everything tastes better from the comfort of a cushy hotel bed—except shrimp cocktail.






Now, though, the logistics of room service are far from fancy. Many hotels rely on a line cook in a makeshift kitchen of the banqueting wing to prep in-room food, rather than the chefs working at the name-brand restaurant.

TSA Lines: Trying to Get Past Airport Security Faster? Get in Line #IHateTheWait

Officials at the Transportation Security Administration thought they had the solution for long lines at airports: “PreCheck” – It has not worked as planned.

For information on traveling to this locale and or additional information on this or any other article please contact us here. Or call tel: +1. 305.445.7791

It has not worked as planned.

Customers who apply for the program, which requires a fee of $85 and a background check, say they continue to face long waits to obtain the PreCheck clearance. Such delays could grow worse because the number of people signing up for PreCheck has more than tripled in the last few months, climbing to 16,000 a day on average in May, agency officials said.

That surge has led to long delays in processing applications. Dozens of passengers who have recently tried to sign up for PreCheck say they have been given appointments for the in-person interviews needed to complete the process that are weeks or even months away.

TSA Lines: Why They’re So Long, and What You Can Do About It

With travelers increasingly frustrated, the Transportation Security Administration has finally spoken.

Long lines at airports are nothing new. Yet in recent weeks, understaffing, heightened periods of travel, and stricter security measures have created a perfect storm and brought the issue to a boiling point: Port Authority has threatened to replace the TSA with private contractors, and airlines have spoken out on behalf of the traveler. There’s even a designated hashtag—#IHateTheWait—and viral videos of passengers stuck in long lines, and at airports overnight. Now, the TSA is finally addressing the issue read more
