comment How can I deal with people asking to switch seats with me on a plane?
@Andy If you've got some number of children (and that could include only 1 or more), having more than one adult nearby to deal with them will likely make the flight better for everyone on board. Perhaps the family got bumped or re-routed that wasn't their fault.

comment Uk Tourist Visa refused twice!
Based on previous Q&A here, I'm not sure adding your father's bank accounts/property info will help. The people in charge of visas need to know that you have money under your control.

comment Is it possible to check-in a double stroller on a flight?
We've checked at the gate both a Graco DuoGlider, and a smaller side-by-side umbrella style stroller.

comment UK visa bank statement info
@DJClayworth off-topic really? He's asking about the requirement for bank statements to get a short-term visa and has a complicated situation (a shared account). Why is that more appropriate for money.SE or Expats.SE? (hint: I don't think it is)

comment Can I cross the US/Canadian border with a copy of my US passport?
Uh, no. (if it were allowed, it would defeat the purpose of having security features). If you had an enhanced driver's licenses, that would work, but I don't think Florida has those yet.

comment What does it mean to be in the fast lane in California?
@CGCampbell go on and read 21651 which talks about a truly divided highway. That is, there is at least 2 feet gap between the directions delineated by double yellow lines or a median or a barrier. That implies to me that 21650 is talking about undivided highways. So 21650 c means one direction of a divided highway. Appears to be backed up by 21659.

You might check whether buying your daughter an adult round-trip ticket would be cheaper than multiple one-way tickets.

comment What are the limits when carrying laptops and electronics to USA?
Check on whether you might have trouble re-importing the devices back to your home country. It's sometimes possible to get paperwork from customs proving that the devices were obtained prior to travel.
