Infographic Alert: Spring Break Airfare and Destinations, Explained

February 26, 2014 at 6:18 AM | by | ()

It’s that time of year once again, as the Spring Break season is upon us. The folks over at Travelocity are happy to share the season, as they have created a sweet little infographic showing where people are headed and how much they’re spending on airfare.

There’s been roughly a 15% increase in year-to-year domestic travel, but those heading overseas shouldn’t really see many more tourists than normal. It’s not surprising that Florida takes the top spot, with a specific focus on South Florida. Newcomers to the top ten list include a couple of aloha destinations, as both Maui and Honolulu now take in their fair share of spring breakers willing to go a bit far for their fun.

So take a minute to view the full infographic, and start dreaming about your Spring Break destination (of course after the spring breakers have left!). We’d say that the season kicks off in just over a week or so, and continues until probably around the middle of April. You've been warned.

Infographic Alert: How We Waste Time on In-Flight WiFi

March 6, 2013 at 11:38 AM | by | ()

So, you've got a solid four hours in the air and your airplane is all hooked up with In-flight WiFi. What are you going to do? Survey says: aimlessly surf the web!

Time spent flying is usually considered wasted—hours spent staring out the window, hours spent filling in the crossword puzzle in the back of the airline magazine, hours spent bitterly watching some movie you never wanted to see anyhow...but WiFi was supposed to change all that! Finally, with WiFi access in the sky, travelers could keep up with work, catch up on the news or handle internet errands.

Guess what? According to the latest infographic on in-flight web use from Gogo, the #1 activity for in-flight WiFi users is still surfing the web wasting time! Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Infographic Alert: The iPhone 5 as a Frequent Flyer

November 12, 2012 at 10:38 AM | by | ()

Think you travel a lot? The iPhone has you easily beat, considering it does a one-way circumnavigation of the globe before it's even ready to be powered on.

At 20,096 miles, from the US companies to the several countries that manufacture it until it comes back to the US to reach your hands, the Apple iPhone 5 is only one long-haul flight away from reaching Silver Medallion status on Delta or Silver MileagePlus on United.

Looking at the route—United States > United Kingdom > Germany > South Korea > Taiwan > China > United States—it's pretty inspirational for an actual around-the-world. A traveler could claim they're on the "iPhone route" around the globe, though of course that would sounds terrifically dorky.
