comment Book flight within Canada on US airline
Yes, the name comes from the fact airplanes are made of metal, but it refers not just to the plane itself but also crew and everything else. It means who the flight is operated by and that's distinct from who the ticket was issued by.

right, operating YYZ-YVR on United metal would be cabotage. But codesharing is the key.

comment From what point on the earth's surface could you view the most UK counties?
I've tried to edit your answer for formatting, but clearly some of your list is not counties, perhaps commentary or places within those counties? Since there end up being more than 7 in the bulleted list. Please finish the editing process to get the effect you wanted.

comment What is the best option for transit tickets in Toronto as a tourist?
@verve, no, the actual "card 12345 got on at station ABC at 1:23pm" needs to get recorded in a system. It's not an all-you-can-ride monthly pass that you can just show.

comment Travel destinations for the single traveler
nobody can decide what is good. Ask crisper questions. Take a look yourself at the museums, restaurants, and attractions by doing a web search, and when questions remain - are the buses safe for a solo traveler? Do restaurants give you a bad table if you're alone? - Whatever your issues are, ask those.

comment Men in thongs on mediterranean beaches?
Since you own a substitute bathing suit, and a thong won't exactly take up space in your suitcase, why not bring both? Head to the beach in your Speedo and if it looks like thongs are pretty common and not worthy of comment or remark, change into yours. You don't really need to know in advance - just bring both!

comment Traveling to Japan from the USA avoiding air travel?
You can definitely cruise from Vancouver (or other west coast cities) to Hawaii, from Hawaii to Australia, and try to find a boat from Australia to Asia then switch to trains. But it's going to be extraordinarily slow!

comment What measures are taken to prevent bombs being smuggled onto planes via insider jobs?
@Hugh - the handlers may be told "drive this little truck over to gate 12" or "put all the bags for YYZ onto that little truck" but only supervisors may know that the YYZ flight is at gate 12, especially in advance. In this way it's harder for someone to target a specific flight.
