Wall Street Journal"Middle Seat" columnist McCartney (ENIAC: The Triumphs and Tragedies of the World's First Computer) has created a guide to navigating and getting the most out of airline travel. Heavy on airline industry information, the book features only two chapters devoted to hotels and cruises. Topics include airfares, upgrades, frequent flier plans, boarding, weather, security, and baggage woes. Not as generally comprehensive as Peter Greenberg's The Complete Travel Detective Bible, which also covers lifestyle, active, and other travel, this guide does provide extensive, detailed airline information that will surely be useful to frequent air travelers who want to improve their journey. This is not a quick read; instead, the dense narrative is loaded with great information, fantastic tips, and additional resource recommendations, making it a good choice in these economically tough times, when travelers want to get the best deals, avoid travel hassles, and work the system.
