Granted, when traveling, you should always have backup photos of your identification, your credit cards, etc. stored somewhere safe, maybe stored online so that you can access it in case your wallet was stolen.

What a great idea, combining social media with charter flight travel. The new company, Social Flights, Takes the concept of social media, where you can quote the price of a flight, and get others to buy tickets on that flight too so that you can fill up a plane at essentially the same price for a regular commercial flight ticket, resulting in sharing that flight with others who want to fly to the same place with you.
I joined the site today,and it appears that concept has yet to really ‘take off’, but this could be a great contender for big vacation trips to ski resorts, etc. I’m definitely going to watch this one, and if I buy a ticket I’ll post a review.
Social Flight has access to 50,000 seats across its fleet and hopes to take a piece of both the private aviation market — a $50 billion per year business — and the commercial travel sector.

Planes, Trains, Subways and Boats Airports aren’t the only place a terrorist could attack. Other travel outlets are becoming aware of the risk and are beginning to also put in safety measures.
