Is There a Pilot Shortage?

It seems like every time travel is mentioned nowadays, people are quick to point out the “pilot crisis.” Everyone seems to assume flying will become cost prohibitive in the next few decades thanks to statistics released by Boeing and Airbus that claim we’ll need over 600,000 new pilots by 2035. But, there’s more to these statistics than initially meet the eye. If you’ve ever dreamed of being a pilot, you may want to take advantage of the shortage, but is it worth it? Read on if you are clamoring for facts about the pilot shortage and if it’s worth enrolling in flight school amidst the deficit.

Flying With Your Pet

Traveling with your fur-baby can be a stressful time, especially if you’ve never done it before. There are so many rules and regulations that it can be hard to navigate what applies to you and what doesn’t. Not only do the policies change frequently, but they often vary from airline to airline, as well. To help mitigate some of that stress, we’ve compiled this handy guide to flying with your pet that will have you and Fido confidently boarding your plane with ease.

1.) How will your pet travel?

Your pet will be able to fly to your destination with you, but how they get there will depend on a variety of factors. If your pet is on the larger side and isn’t a service dog or an emotional support animal, chances are good they’ll wind up flying as cargo, which is where all of the luggage is stored. If your pet is small enough to fit in a carrier under your seat, then they’re invited to share your cabin space on almost all of the major airlines. If you’re traveling with an exotic animal, you’ll have a bit more difficulty finding an airline that will accept your pet. Rodents, insects, spiders, snakes, hedgehogs, etc. are prohibited on many major airlines so you may be better off leaving them home.

Avoid Using These Hand Gestures (and Emojis) In Other Countries

Travelers know that there are language barriers when they travel to foreign countries, but were you aware that those barriers extend beyond mere words? In some countries, certain body language and hand gestures that we use with impunity in America could land you in some major hot water overseas. And with emoji use, it’s so ingrained in our culture that we don’t even think twice before adding a smiley face or poop emoji to our texts.

Although we think we’re being cute, we may be doing more harm than good depending on the culture we’re visiting. It’s always a wise idea to research local customs before traveling somewhere new to avoid any embarrassment. But for a quick reference, read on to see what gestures, body language, and emojis to avoid if you’re heading out on an international trip soon!
