Norwegian Air Offers $65 Fare From USA To Europe

OK, don’t get too excited. First of all, it’s the usual airline routine of advertising a base price. Then, with taxes, baggage, food, drink and other fees, the actual one-way, out-of-pocket cost is about $120. Of course, that’s still a fantastic bargain, with regular airline overseas prices starting at $500 and soaring skyward.

Also, the special low fare is for a limited number of flights only to and from several northeast US airports and destinations in Europe. And Norwegian may end the promotion at any time when bookings get heavier. For more info, go to www.norwegian.com

We won’t name them, but recently we’ve heard one refused to publish negative reviews and reports of physical dangers to travelers. Do the sites censor complaints because it means lost income to their client hotels, resorts, cruise lines and other travel businesses? Mrs. TLM, London UK

A: Of course, the main incentive for all in the travel industry is to keep tourists and cash coming in. Several years ago, your travel4seniors.com editor awoke after a night in a Las Vegas hotel to finding the bed infected by biting bedbugs.

Okinawa, Japan: Island Secrets Of Living Healthy To Age 100 PDF Print E-mail

Guest Traveler PLF, Skokie IL: In April 1945, my Navy troop transport put Marines ashore on the island to fight the final, bloody battle of World War 2. By the time it ended in June, Germany had already surrendered and Japan would quit just a few months later in August.
