Note: this answer is a bit speculative, based on general economic principles rather than any specific knowledge about the airline industry. But I think your question may be based on the sunk cost fallacy. My understanding is that counter space is allocated to airlines as part of their lease agreements with the airport, and that these are fairly long-term ...

Check in counter and aircraft parking gates at airports are usually provided in as copious quantity as is possible for the space. This allows for maximum usage during peak arrival/departing times slots and allows space for expansion in terms of number of flights/airlines serving the airport. Airlines that make frequent flights to an airport tend to have ...

Not sure if this is useful, but based on experience I would say that someone the size of your mother will be fine. My girlfriend is 5'4" and almost 450lbs right now, and she is just getting to the point where a second seat is truly necessary--up until recently she could squish (albeit uncomfortably) and with the courtesy of the other passengers and a ...

I am in Germany now. I come back to this website to see if I can help anyone. Because when I needed help i got a lot of info on how to do the write things. I want to write on what the invitation letter must contain, because my visa was rejected mainly as the invitation letter was deemed not reliable. If you can speak to the company which is providing you ...

while the answers by Michael Borgwardt and Relaxed are both correct, you shouldn't worry about this too much - getting fined JUST for not having this sticker is not very common.. usually you'd be fined if you get stopped eg for driving too fast or parking violations and the police notices the missing sticker. also the police in germany might be OK if you ...

As you probably know, cars registered abroad are not generally exempt from the environmental sticker requirement. The official websites from many cities are very explicit about that and the law includes provisions to determine in which category cars registered abroad fall. It would therefore be somewhat surprising if rental cars were exempted (after all, ...

No you cannot get a waiver. Entering the environmental zones without a sticker will get you fined. You can get a sticker for 5 EUR at a TÜV or DEKRA branch by showing the vehicle's registration papers.

Yes you can. With a transit visa for Canada, you have up to 48 hours. Since your layover is 23 hours, you can get dinner, spend the night in a hotel, and do some sightseeing the following morning. Give yourself an hour for traffic if during the week, and be back at the airport 1.5-2 hours before your flight and enjoy!

From Greyhound Australia's web page: Remember, with our Hop On Hop Off passes, you can get on and off as many times as you like, as long as you continue to travel in one direction. Each pass is valid for 6 months from date of purchase and 3 months once travel commences, so you have loads of time to experience the beauty of Australia! I suppose ...

First I am a Doctor, of Indian origin. I had some interviews in Germany, and the interviews was being organised by a recruitment company. They were taking care of my accommodation and my transpiration. They had sent me an invitation letter stating we invite so and so for interview and we provide accommodation and transport. They had not mentioned the dates ...

There is nothing that prohibits you from carrying a microscope onboard an airplane. One thing to mention is the tools that comes with it, if I am not mistaken microscopes comes with a set of tools (I have seen one made for amateurs), it comes with some sort of sharp tools and/or some kind of liquids in small bottles (I guess dye or something like that). ...

If it's the same airline the whole way through and/or all sectors are on the one ticket, it will be counted as a 'no-show', and your onward flights will most likely be cancelled. If it's a separate airline and a separate ticket, then the no-show prior to the ARNK shouldn't impact your onward travel.

I have issues the same declaration multiple times before, and I was never required to be at the airport or anything like that. There's no official requirement for that. Just in case, even though it's completely not necessary, you may want to be available by phone. However usually border controls aren't strict at that point, the only thing they usually ask ...

I think key to the answer is "where I will take permanent residence." The moment you arrive in the UK you are technically still a resident of India. This will remain up until you take permanent residency in the UK. Just make sure your insurance applies up until that date, preferably some days after arriving in the UK just to be on the safe side. If you ...

You don't use a passport for a "leg" of the trip. You use a passport to enter a particular country and to leave a particular country (if it has exit checks). You should always enter and exit a country with the same passport. But the passport you use to exit the country at the start of the "leg" and the passport you use to enter the country at the end of the ...

Assuming you flying direct from Kingston to Russia and only transferring in London, my suspicion is that you would only have a single opportunity to show a passport. You would only show the passport if you left the sterile area- and hence were entering the UK. At that point, you are operating as two distinct and unrelated trips. You can show which ever ...

I think it is legal to have a in-car camera installed while driving, not only Russia but also the US and the EU, there are several companies that will give discounts on insurance by having "black Boxes" fitted to the vehicle, These are mostly aimed at new young drivers as their insurance quotes tend to be shall we say "HIGH". I have fitted 2 HD car cameras ...

Interesting to see the number of references to hotel mini-bars being overpriced, which of course most are. It is for that reason when we acquired our hotel [a new venture for us] we decided to price it at local shop prices. We make our money from our rooms, the mini-bar is a facility for our guests. If the local corner shop can make money at their prices, so ...

If you opted for a web check-in when you did your ticket purchasing, then you MUST come to the airport with a printed boarding pass of the web check-in. I am talking about coming with the actual paper print. I've just flew from Sofia to Tel Aviv yesterday and I had to pay a 35 Euros fee.

Rick Steves has a post on this and his answer comes down to: Interpret hoteliers’ reticence as “I have lots of good furniture and fine floors in this room, and I don’t want your drippy laundry ruining things.” But as long as you wash carefully and are respectful of the room, go right ahead. It's also possible they want to save on water, but then ...
