Big Deal! Southwest Now Shows Free Movies In Flight PDF Print E-mail


How many flying seniors remember 30 or so years back when movies were projected on small screens up front of the passenger cabin? You could hear the sound track on the earphones plugged into your seat, but could only squint at the teeny images way, way up there. Not much different than little screens on 1950s television sets.

Now, as with some competing airlines, SW has ended the $5 charge for watching in-flight movies on seat back screens. The programs can always be prerecorded at home and seen on personal devices, such as smartphones. Also, SW passengers can now watch live TV broadcasts and some first-time entertainment videos on seat back screens.

 
Would You Sign To Sail Aboard New Titanic II in 2022? PDF Print E-mail


Seniors are among the most avid cruise passengers. We enjoy the luxury of moonlit nights at sea, fine dining, colorful port visits and other amenities of sailing. However, we’ve all read history books about the disaster of 1912 when the original Titanic sank, and seeing scary movies that portrayed the tragedy.

We’re hearing about the Titanic II now under construction in Jiangsu, China, and scheduled to sail 110 years after the original ship sank. Not many of us consider ourselves as lucky as the Unsinkable Molly Brown, so we can just wonder how successful the new Blue Line cruise company will be in signing up passengers.

Speedy Scooters Vs Senior Sidewalkers = Daily Dangers PDF Print E-mail


It’s happening every day in cities around the USA, including those frequently strolled by traveling seniors. In Los Angeles, New York and beach cities on both coasts, the electric toys for grown-ups are dangerous.

The introduction of scooters just a few years ago has blossomed into armies of racing electric skaters. Many, single and in packs, speed along sidewalks aimlessly knocking over anyone and anything in their paths. By law, they’re supposed to travel on the street in bike lanes. However, too frequently they race up and down sidewalks at speeds far greater than the advertised 15 MPH.

On your next travel destination while strolling in Central Park, Chicago lakefront or along Hollywood Boulevard, be constantly aware of competing for space with scooter traffic. Look both ways before you suddenly decide to turn to walk into that souvenir shop or for a bite to eat at a nearby McDonald’s. Your next painful option after a scooter collision may be to try to get back up or be taken to the hospital.

Brave senior cruisers will not only enjoy the great food, booze and ocean views on their Virgin Voyage on the Scarlet Lady cruise ship.

Then they can go home after the trip looking like Popeye and other vintage swabbies.

 
Online Phone Travel Advisor May Be Wearing Stripes PDF Print E-mail


Recent news revealed that some advice sites are staffed by prisoners. It could be as crooked as the dangers of responding to other phony sites in China, Russia and other foreign locations. Your best bet to book travel is with a live, legitimate expert in an agency near you. Also, when you decide to book online, the safest way is contact directly with the airline, hotel and other proven services. 

Imagine what happens when the jailbird agent asks you? OK, customer. Now that I’ve advised you, I need your credit card number to buy a ladder, civilian suit, 10 feet of rope and your soon-to-be emptied bank account ID.
