An anatomist explains why turbulence on flights makes us feel so ill and disoriented.
A flight powered by sustainable aviation fuel is making a trip across the Atlantic. But is it really a greener way to fly?
Takeoff and landing are among the most difficult tasks commercial pilots perform.
Loyalty schemes tend to be the most generous when the economy has hit a patch of turbulence.
The clock could be ticking for the travel industry unless action is taken to change our travel habits.
Over the past 60 years, the duration of flights has remained roughly the same, while passengers have been subjected to more indignities, longer waits and more cancellations.
Turbulence strong enough to pose an injury risk could be set to double or triple in frequency in the future.
While it is critical that air passengers be compensated for airline delays and cancellations, it is equally — if not more — important to address the underlying causes of such disruptions.
The chaos at airlines and airports appears to finally be over, but will the relief last? Or will Canadians have to brace themselves for more delays, cancellations and miscommunications?
The Notices to Air Mission system failed on Jan. 10, 2023, leading to thousands of canceled flights. The system is where all important safety information for pilots and dispatchers gets posted.
The value of frequent flyer miles sometimes seems to defy the laws of economics.
An understanding of bird biology is the starting point for conservation efforts. 3-D reconstructions of biological structures greatly add to this understanding.
From 1968 to 1974, US airlines experienced 130 hijackings. But it was Cooper’s hijacking-as-extortion plot that captured the public’s imagination – and inspired a copycat crime wave.
Our research shows the best changes individuals can make to cut carbon emissions and reduce the effects of climate change.
These coordinated movements of a flock of starlings follow no plan or leader. Scientists used to think the animals must communicate via ESP to create these fast-moving blobs.
Reducing jet fuel consumption by 2.5% each year could halt aviation’s growing influence on climate change.
Since 9/11, billions have been spent beefing up airport security. Was it worth it?
Banning short-haul flights should be just the first step on the path to greener transport systems.
When planes fly from east to west, they are flying against a river of air called a jet stream. These air currents can make your flight longer or shorter, depending on which way you are going.
Academics and others concerned with benefitting from peer professional collaboration can use COVID-19 disruptions as an opportunity to improve conferences through smart design.
