Travel Video of the Week: The Dirty Truth: Airline Travel

Dirty Truth

Before you watch this video, let me say that I’m not trying to make you paranoid. I’m just trying to keep you and your family healthy, and that’s why I’m featuring it as our Travel Video of the Week. TODAY’s correspondent Jeff Rossen and his national investigative team took three different cross-country flights, each on […]

Travel Video of the Week: 9 Ways to Pass Time in an Airport

9 ways

Last week a couple of dudes got stuck overnight in the Dallas/Fort Worth Airport and decided to make the most of the time by doing things they’d always dreamed of doing in an airport. It’s pretty funny.

Travel Video of the Week: Skype’s “Born Friends Family Portrait”

Skype

Skype is arguably one of the all-time (or at least modern) best inventions since it allows people to talk/video conference each other for free. Well, they just released a commercial that will no doubt get you teary-eyed. The video is about two girls—Sarah and Paige—who have been best friends since they were 8-years-old and have shared everything over […]

Southwest

Last week we shared the hilarious video made by a passenger who made a music video of himself lip syncing to Celine Dion’s “All By Myself ” while stranded one night in Las Vegas’ McCarran Airport.

Icelandair, Iceland’s flagship carrier, just released a new safety video this past week that doubles as a tourism ad for Iceland. It’s a unique […]

Travel Video of the Week: British Airways’ “Go further to get closer”

BA

I really love this British Airways video, and I’m not surprised that it went viral. It’s not even five-minutes long, but it gives you a little insight into what it’s like to be part of an arranged marriage in India and not really be able to know your spouse, before and even after marriage because of family […]

Travel Video of the Week: World’s Highest Waterslide

Waterslide

Thanks to T+ L magazine for turning me onto this video, which features the world’s tallest waterslide that just opened this past weekend at Schlitterbarn Water Park in Kansas City. It’s called the Verrückt (it means “insane” in German) and is 168 feet and 7 inches high—taller than both Niagara Falls and the Statue of Liberty. […]
