United Airlines is in the midst of a major initiative to modernize its fleet over the next several years. After first announcing the plan in 2021, planes fitted with United’s signature interior are finally beginning to appear across the airline’s narrowbody fleet of Boeing and Airbus planes. United flyers are sure to notice these enhancements from the moment they step on board: Each new or updated plane sports remodeled seats, seatback entertainment screens for everyone, Bluetooth connectivity and more, all adding up to a better experience on every journey.
Tips from James Brockbank, founder of The Family Vacation Guide, on Keeping Your Family Safe When Travel Includes a Natural Disaster
From wildfires and volcanic eruptions to hurricanes and earthquakes, you never know what drama may occur during your family travels. James Brockbank, founder of The Family Vacation Guide, shares the following advice for what to do — and not do — if you’re confronted with a natural disaster while traveling:
Getting kids engaged in family travel begins long before you begin your trip. Building up the anticipation and getting kids interested in where you’re going is important, but making them part of the planning gives them a sense of ownership in the adventures to come.
As the only major U.S. airline to own a flight school, United Airlines already hit a major milestone, and now the carrier celebrates another important — and historic — step as the inaugural class of United Aviate Academy pilots graduates, leading the next generation of aviators. The 51 students in the graduating class were majority, at 80 percent, women and people of color — another stride toward United’s goal of training 5,000 new pilots by 2030 with half women or POC.
Packing light can be tough enough for one, but when you are packing for a family, it can be one of the most stressful parts of the trip. Traveling with kids means you need to be prepared for just about anything, which means precious luggage space becomes even more valuable.
