comment How to prepare parents for B2 VISA interview?
Definitely do not argue (clarify if needed, but do not argue). A couple I know almost got their visa refused b/c one of them is a lawyer and didn't like some of the questions.

comment Can you use an Ergo baby on a Singapore Airlines flight?
You are not allowed to use the baby carriers for take-off and landing (because your bulky form makes it harder to exit the aircraft quickly), but I don't see what the issue would be during the flight.

comment Can you use an Ergo baby on a Singapore Airlines flight?
You cannot use the baby carrier during take-off and landing, but during the flight, it can be a useful method to hold the sleeping baby while having your hands free (put the seat belt beneath the baby, so that it holds only you). See also this question about traveling with small kids

comment In London, it is better to do sight-seeing in the morning or the afternoon?
@Relaxed: very good point, especially given the length of stay. They do take a "voluntary donation", though, and the audio guide is not free.

comment Can I take two rings to Canada without paying any fee?
Note: Even though this question is (apparently) linked to immigration, it is about travelling, specifically about customs, and IMHO on-topic here.

Are these rings for you or for someone else? Also, what do you mean with "long time" - are you taking up (temporary) residency?

comment Why does it take so long to check in at the airport?
It is rare that I do an online check-in in less than 5 minutes (starting with entering data till boarding passes are printed/sent to my phone). Data entry takes time, and I don't even need to talk to myself while doing it.

comment Personal item size on a United Airlines flight to Asia
This is my experience as well - while I've been asked to size-check or weigh my carry-on bag (Europe can have pretty strict weight limits), my normal-sized backpack has always accompanied me onto the plane without hassle, even if it contained multiple heavy laptops and was stuffed so that it exceeded size limits.

comment How many laptops can I take on an international flight from the US to Europe?
@Alex: I had two in my backpack and one in the carry-on bag. More recently, I've travelled with three in my backpack (was a bit heavy, though).

comment Is there an obligation to renew a small child's passport before its expiry date?
@JoeBlow: That's why you bring a travel letter with you as a single parent - they trust that much more than the level of resemblance of the photo. Note that the TSA doesn't even require minors to produce ID on domestic flight.
