Upvote/Downvote: Prince, Sexy Hotels And More Bizarre Travel News

This week introduced us to the apex of photography.

There is hardly any hyperbole behind that statement, which you will discover for yourself in just a second.

But first we have some big Internet news and a hotel hiccup from a Chinese airline that accidentally infused a bit of kinky into a couple of travelers’ respective itineraries.

Feel free to opine away with us across our social channels.

Gogo Gadget Lawsuit:

American Airlines and Gogo are going through a rough patch in their relationship. The airline would like to see other people and Gogo is preparing a proposal that shows their service isn’t as slow as everyone makes it out to be.

Upvote: Some of you might be reading this from an airplane on service that resembles dial-up from the late '90s.

The industry was in serious need of a shake-up no matter how miniscule. This big step could go a long way to infusing some competition into the marketplace.


Hainan Airlines had one of its flights delayed recently, which was only the first mistake it would make on this fateful day.

As TravelPulse’s Donald Wood reports, the airline booked passengers into various hotels. It was a nice gesture, if it hadn’t managed to book two passengers who previously didn’t know one another into the same room in an S&M hotel.

Downvote: We see you, Hainan Airlines, working hard to be that high-flying matchmaker the industry needs. However, perhaps you start by including a chat function in the seatback.

Princely Passport:

Prince, the singer and not anyone who possesses any actual royal legitimacy, decided to post his passport to Twitter.

Upvote: If you don’t love the above image then we can’t help you. Perhaps you also hate cuddle sessions with puppies, the first day of spring or getting an extra nugget with your chicken McNugget order.

Sedona No-No:

Vanessa Hudgens etched her and her boyfriend’s initials into a rock. The problem was that it was in a park with a bunch of nationally treasured rocks.

Upvote: Obviously, we don’t condone the act, but we are upvoting the story itself as a teachable moment for tourists around the world.

Pretend like you are a child going into an expensive store with your parents when you are traveling. Look, but don’t touch.
