Traveling with pets is never easy. However, it can become horrifying, too. An Australian Virgin Australia passenger was shocked to see her dog left without supervision (but in his box) on the tarmac at a Sydney airport.

Which?, the largest consumer body in the UK, has finished its survey on customer satisfaction with airlines. According to their data, UK flyers rated Ryanair as the worst airline in 2018.

Talking about Ryanair (or strikes): there will be strikes this January. Spanish unions are planning to do three on the 8th, 10th and 13th.
