|Travel / Inside Emirates' New First Class Private Suites With Virtual Windows (pics) by 13ShadesOfMay(m): 3:05am|
Emirates has unveiled its plane of the future – and you’ll want to see what’s inside the new first class private suites.
The upgraded Boeing 777 aircraft boasts floor to ceiling sliding doors and sleek design features which have been inspired by the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
Taking luxury and privacy to new limits, the 40sq ft suites feature leather seats that can completely recline into a flat bed or even be put in a zero gravity position.
Inspired by NASA technology, the chairs are designed to make passengers feel relaxed and weightless while flying through the air.

Lol. Be like say you and hubby fight about it this morning.
Well the truth is, the problem is you and your husband telling people your plans to relocate. If y'all kept mute and focused on your plans as a family, no one will have the nerve to comment on yalls plans. Next time you and your husband should keep your mouths shut and tell no one your family plans until you have your plane tickets in your hands. Even then, you still don't owe anyone gist. Free the woman feeding your husband stories, the problem is your husband that went to tell her una plans.

Confirm from Delta office when you get to the airport to avoid stories that touch. Those wakanow staff can hardly help especially with Delta (maybe things have changed).
My 2014 experience won't let me fly delta with an infant even if it's a free ticket, yes you heard me right.
From moving my Houston to Atlanta ticket forward without informing me leaving me with just an hour to hop into my Atlanta-Lag flight
insisting I buy a return ticket for my infant (if I remember correctly, that cost me about $700, and there was no sensible person to answer my questions. They just gave me a number to call)
refusing to let me take in my infants carry-on because the cabin was full even when their fellow hostess mentioned that we could put it in business class cabin. I had to just pack diapers and wipes into my handbag(we were actually amongst the last to get on the plane).
And just when I thought I had seen the worst, 2 of my boxes didn't come to Lagos with me and I had an Owerri flight to catch the next day.
Lastly if you need a bassinet, then don't pick the middle seat, you won't be given any.
My upgrade to economy comfort was a waste of money.
Please check and check and check again.
|Travel / Five Hacks To Choose The Perfect Airplane Seat by babaghost: 9:57am On Dec 10|
The seat you choose to sit on a plane, especially if you are not flying first class, can go a long way in determining the outcome of your flight. This is because not all plane seats are created equally and on every flight, there are some seats that are better than others depending on the aeroplane. This makes selecting the appropriate plane seat essential. Jumia Travel, the leading online travel agency shares tips to help you avoid choosing a terrible and inconvenient aeroplane seat. It is noteworthy to add that the best place to sit on a plane is exit rows, aisle or window seats, and seats close to the front of the plane.
Purchase your tickets early
The number of seats available for pre-assignment declines as the travel date approaches. If you can't buy your tickets at least several weeks in advance, be sure to check in online as soon as possible before your flight to select a seat
Consider buying a better seat
Several airlines now offer economy-class seats with extra legroom for an additional fee. It is, therefore, essential for you to do a bit of research to know airlines that provide this extra-legroom service. JetBlue and United airlines are good examples.
Select your seat when you book
Most airline websites usually allow you to choose a seat when you purchase your ticket. In most cases this process is free. Also, do not forget to confirm the seat you have already selected because it is possible to check in online 24 hours before your flight leaves.
Get to the airport early
If you arrive too late at the airport, you may lose your seat and the one you will be assigned may be very uncomfortable.
If you know exactly what seat you're interested in, it will be easier for agents to get it for you. Instead of asking for an exit row or a good seat, try asking for 12A and it will be more likely to get what you want or an acceptable substitute.

I'M A LIL BIT ANGRY(MY FRUSTATIONS)
My Parents worked so hard to raise us well and to give us the best in Life. I used to imagine and wish having my own house and 5 cars parked in my compund( EOD, EVIL SPIRIT, MUSCLE, PENCIL AND VENZA each one serving different purposes), I used to tell my friends rushing abroad that "I will stay in this Nigeria and make it big time"..
Jan to Aug 20xx is the day i can never forget, it was during my nysc and infact I have never experienced that kind of sufferness in my life. my friend and I wld buy 6 groundnuts and 1 sugar to drink garri everyday to the extent I became a well know customer there. Along the line Mr A and Mr B came to my rescue.
They housed me, fed me for free(they saved me from sufferness) and treated me like their own blood. As time goes by, I realised my WISH and IMAGINATIONS are washing down the drain and that was why i took a step of faith in seeking for greener pastures.
Sept 20xx, I saw little money after my first Visa denial and I was telling my friend that I will stay in Nigeria and make it in life(Of course I was fooling myself), My Parents are retired and inturn looking up to us(their life investment) but I myself was looking onto God.
Jan 2 20xx, I left Nigeria and some people on fbk messenger will be asking me when am I coming home all the time? My question is HOME TO DO WHAT? I have known people that has spent over 5 year in America that never came home to settle down, You are saying me should come back home.
I lived in a small town and Just moved to Chicago. Chicago wey Obesere dey use sing back in those days wey i dey always dream of, I never spend up to 30 days here feeling the real america and pple are saying I should come home. Do they have something for me at home or just acting like my Village people?
America that I stepped my foot on rekindle my hope that my wish CAN still come true and it WILL come true. America has changed my thinking and it still changing my thoughts to "NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE".With God all things are possible.
I used to pass through O'Hare Airport and admire those airplanes A380 and 747 but i have never once imagine myself in that plane coming to Nigeria. My real Nigeria is in America. America even without $1, I get hope i will eat 3 meal a day, something I can never guarantee in Nigeria without money, America that has made me realised I can be whatever I can be without cutting corners. A day job in America is some people 2 months salary in Nigeria
My answer to you people asking me when am I coming home is simple. I and Nigeria are like parallel lines(for now). I ain't coming nowhere. I have endured sufferness in Nigeria, when it gets better, I will only come and reap the sweetness and come back here again. I HAVE SUFFERED ENOUGH IN NIGERIA.. Tell your leaders to fix up Nigeria. I even sleep in a house without burglary proof without any fear.
I am full blooded Nigerian but God Bless America.
Apologies to people living in Nigeria but I gave up on Nigeria loong time ago.
Thanks to my american wife that took me out on Nigeria

Sit ur ass down,u dont have a job offer,no business proposal,no admission letter,no friend or relatives or siblings,you havent thought of how to apply for visa,what to apply and other stuff,u jux wonna jump on the next plane,what the hell wrong witcha y’all,singapore is extremely expensive,and even when u have a genuine reason for traveling they still look at u like why re u coming here,u think traveling is that simple,its only simple when u have genuine reasons to travel and documents to back it up,even with documents you will still be on it for months sometimes,.....forget hustling in singapore....its people like u that travel agents love to meet,so that they can dupe u very well....
Now if i will be nice to you sir......go online,look for countries with hustling potentials,try and look for what you can do to travel there,school,professional courses,u can look for cheap ones,vocational schools,etc,or u look for immigrant programs such as the canadian,australian immigrant programs(example Australian skilled workers immigration).........traveling is not easy n not very cheap...

Pls can I get dr xydas quote, with his contact phone and email. Pls I beg pm me. Litylity55@gmail.com. Tnx.
quote author=Adedoyin2108 post=62924573]Hello ladies
Thought to share my POE experience. I travelled on Tuesday at 35 weeks using Lufthansa airline. Chose Lufthansa cos the layover in Frankfurt was bearable, about 3 hours. 24 hours before the flight, I chose a middle aisle seat on their website for maximum comfort. U shd have a copy of your fit to fly doc, the airline requested a copy of mine.
Flight to Frankfurt was smooth, didn’t like the food though. At Frankfurt, I requested for assistance getting to the gate for the flight to Houston. It was a good decision, Frankfurt airport is really massive, the waka alone is enough to induce labour. Lol! One of the immigration officers at Frankfurt asked me a lot of questions but after providing several docs to answer his questions, he tire and let me go.
Frankfurt to Houston was 10hrs 20mins. I didn’t eat the food also but I had crackers sha. At Houston, I requested for a wheelchair. Good decision also, cos the wheelchair queue was much shorter than the regular queue.
I got to the counter
Cbp: what are you coming to the US for?
Me: To give birth
Cbp: what do you do? What does your husband do?
Cbp: There must be a million bankers in Nigeria.
Me: smiles) not up to a million
Cbp: where’s your husband
Me: he’s coming to join me in 2 weeks
Cbp: how much do you have?
Me: 9k cash
Cbp: do I have any account statements showing the 9k was pulled from your account? You could have borrowed the money
Me: I took that along for my interview in Nigeria but I don’t have it here
Sends me to secondary inspection
After the usual questions
Cbp: how much is your bill and how much do U have
Me: about 5k and I have 9k
Cbp: do you have any other money
Me: yes, my husband does. Told him the figure and he does the conversion
Cbp: do you have any food
Me: yes. Egusi, ogbono n co
Cbp: ok. make sure you pay all your bills and obtain receipts. Take those receipts with u whenever you travel. Do not accept any aid, u don’t qualify for it. When do u plan to leave?
Me: end of January max
Cbp: stamps my passport for 6 months. You are cleared to go.
Didn’t go to Agric. I filled the form given on the plane but they didn’t request for it.
Since I wasn’t familiar with the airport, I didn’t use Uber. I booked on Supershuttle.com from Nigeria. So I went to their stand, confirmed my reservation and waited for the bus. Ride was ok and it was way cheaper than Uber. Since I’m using Dr Xydas, I stayed at InTown suites. But they don’t provide pots, plates etc for cooking. Had to buy.
Was a great experience in all sha.[/quote]

degreat11:if he wants to come home, allow him to come home.. you are probably an American, sneaking around our forum. Live our brother to come home and invest!..QED! From what I have heard, living without documentation is hell over there.!. So, live the man alone! It is better to come home, proud! than to remain in hell. Go to Europe and see.. some of them are looking for plane ticket to come home... op, come home!! There is no way you will regret it. I know a lot of returnees that are doing good here in Abuja..it is better for him to hold his head high and come home than to be shamefully deported if caught without documentation.. op, save yourself some dignity and come home bro.. we all love you.. you will make it!!

|Travel / 7 Countries That Don’t Want You To Visit by agadaone1(m): 12:55pm On Dec 08|
Tourism can be an economic gold mine when approached properly, and most countries around the world have embraced visitors with open arms. However, there are several places across the globe who decided that they were better without the masses of newcomers: here are 10 countries that have closed their doors to Americans and many other nations around the world.
1) Saudi Arabia
requires all visitors to be sponsored by a legal resident or citizen. Even if you’re sponsored properly, there’s no guarantee that you’ll then be awarded a visa as the application process is highly selective.
Iran doesn’t even have an American Embassy anymore, thanks to the tense Iran hostage situation that occurred there in 1979. If you are able to secure an Iranian visa through the Pakistani embassy in Washington, D.C., you will need to show that you’re traveling with a tour group.
3) North Korea
North Korea requires all visitors to book a full package tour before visiting. During your visit, you’ll be required to stay with your guides the entire time. The lack of North Korean embassy in the U.S. means you’ll need to travel to China before booking a tour.
Syria is in the midst of conflict, but if that doesn’t deter you, the nearly impossible-to-get visa might. Since each visa has to be approved through a complex process, potential visitors face an indefinite wait to be approved or declined.
Somalia is known for the vast number of pirates roaming the seas around it, which should be a good reason not to go. Even if you make it past the pirates, you’ll need a sponsor and an invitation to visit the country.
If Angola is on your must-visit list, you’ll need to be okay with some serious expenditure before you even find out if you can go. Before you can apply for a visa, you’ll need to pay the application fee and invitation fee, then book plane tickets and hotel stays.
Lybia and the U.S. have been at odds for most of the 21st century, and, the U.S. Embassy closed there in 2014. Without a visa, Americans have few ways to visit this warn torn country–and that’s probably for the best because of the anti-U.S. sentiment and high crime rates. Recently we see Nigerians coming back home..

They will distribute the form in the plane... just hold your pen and know the address of where you're going to... as far as I know that's all you will need and no need to fill the form from Nigeria.

Guys, cool down. I was just wondering aloud what would happen in such a situation. I never said women shouldn't be pilots.
If two women pilots happened to have severe menstrual cramps while the plane was in the air, what would happen?

Most planes' autopilots manage to stabilize the craft in turbulence.
To most pilots turbulence is just an inconvenience and not a hazard.
