TTB 064: October Travel Bites w/ Bob and Elliot

On this episode we discuss some of the recent travel related news we found interesting or relevant over the month of October. We break down 10 different news articles, including:

The roll out of airport terminal face recognition technology (AKA getting your picture taken) is coming to a US airport near you! Speeding up boarding times and eventually eliminating the need for paper copy boarding passes, we are excited to see this finally come to the USA.
Do you have your REAL ID? The deadline has been established! Starting October 20, 2020 you will need your REAL ID to fly anywhere in the USA, yes that includes domestic. If you don’t have it you’ll be required to bring along your passport for any flight.
Ladies, forget the Bahamas. Your next girls trip can focus on the Estonian island of Kihnu. With men fading from society in the 19th Century (about 5 men still reside here) the woman have assumed virtually every societal role.
The USA has banned all commercial flights to Cuba with the exception of Havana. This is something we were sorry to hear. After recently learning more about Cuba with our guest @coasttocosta we were looking forward to travel restrictions continuing to relax. It appears another hurdle for USA-Cuban tourism has another hurdle.

Woah, need to wait patiently for an update on this. They may have found Emilia Earhart. We still have to wait on the conclusions of the forensic data - so for now its still all speculation. If these bones do end up being hers, not only does that mean she survived the crash, but that she was also a cast away on a south pacific island for some time before she died. Again, woah.
