Summer Vacation

Summer is almost upon us and many of us are planning to get away from the hustle and bustle of work and every day life. As you plan to escape to relax and rejuvenate for your summer vacation, if you are needing to travel by air, not airlines are the same. Consider a few points before you commit to an airline.

The People and Staff

People do business with People. In the same way people fly other people. You want to enjoy your vacation and holidays, and the airline employees are the ones that will give you a great and terrific end to our restful time. Consider the airline based on the employees that they have.

Airport Lounges

If you have done a lot of traveling, you will understand how crowded and crazy the airports get. Even if you not flying business class, perhaps your credit card company can allow you access. You can also always pay to have the serenity, food and beverages in your airlines lounge.


In life, not everything runs smoothly and travelling is no different. Flights get delayed, cancelled, but how well does an airline do in assisting you re-book through their website and app.

Get Insurance

Many of us blow off the offer to get insurance. However Travel Insurance covers you in the event of many occurrences. Delayed or cancelled flights can increase your spending on a vacation that you had specifically saved for. With the insurance, you can be more relaxed in a stressful situation.

Aircraft in the Fleet

With all that has been developing from the grounding of the Boeing aircraft, consider the fleet of the airline that you are selecting for your travels. Airlines that have been flying the Boeing aircraft now have a shortage in aircraft, creating more delays and frustration for your vacation.

High Speed Wi-Fi

The world revolves around our connection to the internet these days. Since you can’t use your phones internet above the clouds, access to the airlines Wi-Fi allows you to remain connected and share your trip to all your family and friends.

Entertainment on Flights

Being crammed in to a metal can for up to 16 hours (depending on your destination) can get a little much. Entertainment helps us and those around us to rest more easily and travel with less frustration. Some airlines offer great access to entertainment while others do not. Check to see whether the prospective airline will offer you complimentary entertainment.

Meals during the flight

The Low Cost Carriers offer à la carte paid service on their flights. While you might manage for a 2 hour flight without needing to eat, depending on your flight times and length, look into the menu’s available on the airline that you looking to fly. Some airlines go the extra mile to serve something wonderful.

Air Miles

The airline industry were the leaders in offering rewards for your loyalty. When you get to experience the awarded flights, it feels great and so consider the long term benefits of flying with the airline that is rewarding you for your continued loyalty.
You want to arrive to your vacation destination safely, well rested and in a great mood. Consider the airline, after all your vacation starts when you leave your house, not just arrive at the destination.
