Don't miss our "21 Must-Have Essentials for Summer Travel" for 2017.
Welcome to the Round Up – our recurring compilation of the interesting, intriguing, and just plain weird things we find on the internet.
- Qatar Restrictions May Impact More Than Just Travel Since being announced early Monday, this story has dominated internet travel coverage. Seth at The Wandering Aramean describes the potential looming humanitarian crisis.
- Does the Electronics Ban Affect Your Corporate Security? Being separated from your laptop on certain flights inbound to the US is annoying for sure. But it may also violate your company’s data security rules.
- China Air Flight Nearly Misses Mountain After misunderstanding directions from an air traffic controller, a China Air flight turned toward a mountain and barely escaped when the pilot realized the error. Gulp!
- This May Be Bigger Than The Disastrous Fyre Festival Hard to believe as it is, a Canadian festival has declared bankruptcy and instead of offering refunds, is offering forms to file as an unsecured creditor with the court. This could have big implications for the music festival market.
