A pin that might be a little too sharp to wear on an airplane now

Can you help identify this old airline pin? It's an angular bird with a curved beak and blue markings on the tail, about the size of a normal airline "wings" pin, probably from the 1960s or earlier. [more inside]

Rescheduling air travel to save $

I was pleasantly surprised today to find out that some flights I had booked a month ago for my family to travel later this year had come down dramatically in price, so even with the change fee of $150 a head, the savings was quite large and I got a better flight to boot. How often does this happen, and should a person routinely screen for lowered fares even after purchasing a ticket?

How are, or will, the United gates be set up at IAH in December 2011?

Planning a trip from DCA to ONT via IAH in December, projected carrier is United. Projected time to change planes in Houston is 35 minutes. Is it doable or are we asking for trouble? (We're fully mobile and don't mind rushing but we've no experience with Houston.) There's no history (that I can find) of the flights that are offered using United.

What is the name of this book that was about history of airline stewardess customer service training?

I'm looking for a certain book written in the sixties or seventies about the sociological aspect of the training of airline hostesses/stewardesses. Don't remember if it was entirely about this topic, or just a notable part of it. Some part of it may have been about how stewardesses had to curb the outward expression of their personalities to match stringent requirements of communication with passengers that rendered them almost carbon copies of one another. It was somewhat famous. Suggestions? [more inside]

How to deal with cancelled international flights?

The Great Blizzard of Christmas 2010 has severely derailed my plans (love snow as I do). I was supposed to fly from Newark to Hong Kong on Dec. 26th at 3:30, arrive in HK at 8:30pm Dec 27th, then fly Air Asia Hong Kong-Bangkok on the morning of Dec. 28th with a connecting flight immediately following from Bangkok - Luang Prabang, Laos. Newark is supposed to get a foot plus of snow tomorrow. I am feeling a little screwed. Is anyone out there skilled at making the best of this kind of situation? I've never dealt with it before, and have spent the last eight hours trying to make something work. Details below. [more inside]
