Who’s the most important person on the plane? You, of course. Make sure everyone else knows it with these sky-high douchebag tips.
Train services in the USA aren’t widespread, but there are places where the train is actually a better choice than flying. The Points Guy has a guide that rounds up routes where travel by train is cheaper, and sometimes quicker, than by plane.

Flying with kids or infants can be stressful. An easy way to calm your child is to book seats that are near the plane’s engine so the noise puts them to sleep.
With Australia’s terror alert currently on “high” (but with no “specific” threat) you might think that Australia’s airports would adopt a US-style heavy checking regime. So far, though, that doesn’t seem to have happened.

Travel with kids is not an easy process, especially when other passengers shoot you the side eye before you even get your family seated. Take control of the situation when flying and book seats in an L-shape to counteract seat-kicking by your child.

Dear Lifehacker, I am about to embark on two overseas trips by the end of the year with my mother and significant other. On both trips, we will have significant waits (roughly 6 hours) in airports in Sydney late at night or in the wee hours of the morning. I’m not flying business class, nor do I have lounge access for Virgin or Qantas. I was wondering if there was a way to gain access to any lounges in Sydney for a one-off fee like you used to be able to do with Virgin, or if we will have to just suck it up out in the terminal?
Low-cost carrier Tigerair Australia has joined Qantas and Virgin in allowing passengers to use gadgets in flight mode during take-off and landing. In typical Tigerair fashion, however, the rules are a little tougher on passengers.
