Traveling parents are often left with limited options when it comes to securing their babies on an airplane — they can now take solace in a new offer from Qantas Airways when they’re ready to travel once again.
Per the Australian airline’s previous policies, passengers could request a bassinet for their little ones, but wouldn’t know if the accessory would be available until checking in for the flight. A new policy now allows travelers with babies to pre-reserve a bassinet, guaranteeing a baby bed at boarding.
Economy passengers can pay 40 AUD ($24.50) or 5,500 Qantas points for a baby bassinet on a medium-haul international flight, or 45 AUD ($27.58) or 6,000 Qantas points for long-haul international flights. The fee includes the baby bassinet and a reserved seat for the parent.
Travelers who don’t need to book in advance can still request a bassinet at check-in for no additional charge. Passengers in business- and premium-economy seats will also be allowed to reserve a bassinet free of charge.
After a stressful pre-holiday season and a busy work schedule, there was no better time for a relaxing spa experience than during my recent trip to Pasadena with the FXExpress Publications, Inc. team. We headed to The Langham Huntington, Pasadena for the 20th anniversary of the GT Tested Reader Survey awards, which meant a jam-packed trip, but I managed to carve a little time out of our busy schedule to visit Chuan Spa at the hotel.
Five Tips to Help Minimize Potential Travel Problems
You know what you’re going to get at an Aman hotel, and also you don’t. Expect peerless service, obsessive attention to detail, architectural elegance worthy of a fashion magazine, a holistic approach to wellness and astounding levels of comfort. But each property is also intimately connected to its setting, and that’s where the surprises lie. For instance, finding yourself on your knees on a sidewalk in Luang Prabang handing out sticky rice to Buddhist monks at 5:30 a.m. isn’t something we expected.
Incentive travel has long been a way for organizations to drive sales and reward employees with opulent trips to exotic destinations. Today it encompasses even more.
Copa Airlines unveiled its newest route to Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, offering passengers a seamless way to travel nonstop between the North Carolina region and Panama City, Panama (PTY). The service, beginning June 21, will operate four times weekly.
