  1. British man punching a flight attendant. It is good to know that their are hooligans from other countries, too.

  2. I know you’re a germaphobe, but how many frequent travellers have TRULY had a problem with bed bugs? I’m on the road half the time, sleeping in different beds most nights, staying at all sorts of properties (high end, middle end, airbnb), and have never had a bed bug problem in DECADES. I don’t take any unusual precautions, although I try to avoid leaving clothing, etc. on the beds and don’t throw random items on the floor (I leave them in my suitcase, which is usually on the floor). I don’t see a lot of contrary reports, especially considering that millions of Americans are on the road every day. This seems like an (understandable) hysteria in search of a serious problem.

  3. My worst nightmare. Traveling is less and less enjoyable nowadays between this and freaks on flights.

  4. The El Al ad – here’s to hoping humanity can be united … by our common humanity and not national or other superficial identities.

  5. @Dave. Don’t call the hard working FA’s freaks. They’re just living their best lives and surfing on their phones.
