Emirates will increase frequencies on flights to the U.S. this month for the first time since reducing U.S. service last April in response to Trump administration policies.
“Demand is back up,” Emirates vice president of North American sales Matthias Schmid said. “We see very, very strong demand, and we are again in a position to manage some moderate growth in the U.S. network.”
United Airlines is apologizing for the death of a passenger’s dog that a flight attendant reportedly insisted be stowed in an overhead bin during a Monday flight from Houston to New York.

Forget the usual travel playbook: proper hotels, predictable services, planned itineraries. There’s another, more adventurous way. At travel’s cutting edge, all the world’s your stage, and the trip designer is your genie in a bottle. Bespoke does not begin to capture the possibilities: You can sleep luxuriously in an uninhabited wilderness. Dine lavishly on a desert dune. Get beamed, Star Trek–style, from your Mediterranean cruise to the landlocked vastness of Mongolia. Few will follow in your footsteps (that’s bragging rights), and no trace of you will remain behind (tents and props will be packed up). But you can relish the environmental correctness of that. And the adventures will last where they matter most: in your memory.
