Airline Suckurity

Why ship the checked bags with the plane? Why not send them next day to wherever the passenger is going? Drop it off at the curb with an address and ship it. No screening, no worries, take advantage of an existing infrastructure. Fed Ex, UPS, and the USPS have been doing this reliably and cheaply for years. I suspect when all the redundancy is eliminated from the system, and all the extra security measures are dropped, the cost difference would be negligible. This would also cut down on theft. If the bags are sealed up, as the don’t need to be opened to be inspected, it makes it much more difficult to pilfer items from them. Perhaps an industry that isn’t on the ropes may be able to profit by assisting a vital industry that has been in trouble for years.

    Piping in here. I’ve heard business travelers already do a form of this (if they’re smart).

    Apparently, the seasoned road warrior knows their schedule and just forwards their luggage directly to their hotel destination via fed ex (or some other courier service). Then, when they board their plane for their trip, it’s just carry on luggage.

    The cost reduction and security risk reduction would definitely speak for itself in the dollars saved. It’d be wise for Fed Ex and UPS to actually start offering service specifically for this market.

    I find it’s a great way to break the fast and stop my stomach grumbling in the morning which helps to maintain and feed my muscles early in the morning while letting my body use my fat for fuel. I lost a lot of weight safely, and in a short period of time using a different weight loss method. For lunch enjoy 3 more bananas and for a mid lunch snack have one more banana.

    Symptoms most associated with Xeroderma (dry skin) are scaling, which is the visible peeling of the outer skin layer,
    itching and cracks in the skin. If you want to avoid beauty products with harsh chemicals, petroleum-based components,
    and artificial ingredients then an all natural virgin coconut
    oil product is perfect for you. Using your preferred cleanser clean your skin thoroughly.

    High heat and chemicals can destroy the MCFAs and Lauric Acid in the coconut oil and therefore greatly decrease any potential health benefits.
    In these areas of the world, there is usually less access to
    meat, but people do have access to virgin coconut oil.

    Another form of processing oils is known as hydrogenation.

    They both bruise very easily, so it is best to handle them by their stems.
    Unlike pure coconut-oil, I was unable to find Monoi oil in a non-cosmetic formulation.
    Primarily used to heal stomach ache, like food or menstrual cramps, diarrhea, or other type of intestine pains,
    chamomile is kept in every kitchen cupboard as a natural healing

    When someone writes an article he/she maintains the thought of a user in his/her mind

    May I simply say what a comfort to find someone that actually understands
    what they’re talking about on the web. You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make it important. A lot more people should read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised that you aren’t more popular since you certainly have the gift.
