Why is Qatar Airways' CEO, Akbar Al Baker, incapable of shutting his mouth? Seriously, the amount of garbage coming out of his mouth is unbelievable, and the worst part is that he's hurting his own case.

The Flat-Bed Sleeping Dilemma: Should I Be Excited Or Jaded?

Review: Norwegian Premium Class 787-9 London To Fort Lauderdale
