    I've seen a few adverts for the Scrubba lately. While it may work well, I agree with Frank II that it's probably best for the adventure traveller or someone that will be in areas that don't have...

    I believe that a ban on carry-on was considered (at least over the holiday period), but quickly dismissed as there was a concern that people would find other forms of transport or just not fly. A...

    It was great to see Tom Bihn listed in the credits at the end of the Kennedy Centre - Mark Twain award for Jay Leno. No doubt we'll see Jay sporting a new Tri-Star or Aeronaut in the near future.
