Economists in the Middle East must be happy with how things are looking here in the States and passed along some information to the suits at Emirates. The airline has given the go ahead to resume service from Dubai to New York. Passengers have been stuck in a not-as-fun Boeing 777 since the superjumbo jet was pulled from this route, but the A380 in-flight showers will be back beginning this October.
The world’s largest airline—for now—has announced new flights to somewhere you probably have never visited. Delta has announced a once-a-week trip to Monrovia, Liberia beginning this September. The planes will be heading out from Atlanta with a stop in Ghana before reaching their final destination. The airport in Monrovia is trying to meet all kinds of international guidelines and standards, and if all goes well, the new flights should start up in September.
The pilots are especially excited over this new route, but we think even the passengers will be eager for the chance to score $9 fares to Colombia. The airline with prereclined seats and carry-on baggage fees has announced non-stop flights between Ft. Lauderdale and Barranquilla. Spirit Airlines plans to start things off on July 29, and the flights will take place thrice weekly. The best bet to score a $9 fare looks to be for certain dates in September—good luck!
