This Week’s Top 3 Threads – August 16, 2014

1. 10 Cities You Would Not Travel To

Over on Milepoint travelers are listing cities they wouldn’t want to visit and the reasons why. Believe it or not, Detroit has made one person’s top 10 list, included along with Baghdad, Nuevo Laredo, and Mogadishu.

2. Pay No Attention To That Man Booked Behind the Curtain

How would you feel if you purposefully booked a bulkhead seat – even if the bulkhead “wall” did only consist of a curtain – giving up an exit row for the privilege, only to discover at the gate that you had been moved to a non-exit row seat further back?

3. A Novel Approach to Scoring an Upgrade

Years ago Zillow came up with the idea of allowing homeowners to list a “make me move” price on their house. I’m not sure how many have actually sold their home this way, but at least one traveler seems to think the “make me move” concept might just have wings.
