29/11/2008 – The Weekly Round Up : Flying With Fish Gets A New Home : American Travelers Most Annoying? Travel Security Revisited : Photographer = Security Threat? : Is The ‘No Fly List’ Relevant?

This week Flying With Fish picked up and moved to a new home. The transition bringing Flying With Fish over to Boarding Area was smooth and uneventful, just as I had planned.   Why did I accept the offer to move Flying With Fish to a new home? Because Boarding Area is home to some of the best travel blogs anywhere. Boarding Area was also created by the same folks who created FlyerTalk, InsideFlyer and WebFlyer.    The choice to move was an easy one…hopefully the new home will allow Flying With Fish to grow and continue to be a consistent source of travel information for those on the road. For more information on the move, visit this post: 25/11/2008 – Welcome To Flying With Fish’s New Home On Boarding Area!

This week kicked off discussing one of my favourite travel resources, AeroChannel.

This week marked the start of the Holiday Season. The Holiday Season brings out airport thieves who blend in, mingle, and victimize unsuspecting travelers in transit.  For the start of the Holiday Season I revisited two important travel topics this week, how to avoid being an airport thief’s target and the anatomy of an airport security checkpoint.   Read these two important entries here:
