Outside of an emergency evacuation or similarly dire situation, I cannot think of any reason why a civil authority would ban a person from purchasing multiple seats. After all, it is not uncommon for people to purchase an additional seat to carry items like musical instruments or pets, or because they do not fit into a single seat. In consideration of this, ...

The Internet was a game changer in many businesses and the travel agency world is no exception. Nowadays people can easily (this is arguable) find the cheapest price in a quick search; therefore, agencies need to present the best price to be able to sell since that's a key factor.

You cannot keep your laptop on the seat during take off or ...

Not at all. Flying within the US has no border control (makes sense, as you are just flying within the same country). All you need is a TSA approved identification document. Immediately after 9/11 I was flying from San Diego to Dallas, and I was carrying only my Texas driver's license (and no passport). I was approached by FBI, airport police and INS ...

Don't bother taking your car to the US. It will cost you shipping and insurance. You'll have to pay an import tax, and certification fees, get the title properly notarized; get the car approved and inspected to finally get the license plates - that's if the car is allowed in the country in the first place. You'll have to get it insured (which will be ...
