Taking the stress out of travel

Taking the stress out of travel

The pandemic has changed flying more than any other event. In the initial days of the pandemic, the airlines tried to save as much money as possible, allowing for early retirements and furloughing many employees. Now there is an employee shortage. As a result, airlines are short-staffed and overworked.

Flights crews have time limits on how long they can work, generally  12 - 16 hours at a stretch. There aren't many backup crews, so your flight may be cancelled. However, you can take much of the stress out of travel by planning ahead and being prepared.

Wake up slowly, have some coffee and pancakes, and leisurely head to your boat. The extra money is worth the peace of mind.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
