Delta's New London Heathrow Move

Delta Airlines recently moved all their flights to or from London’s Heathrow airport from their former home in Terminal 4 to Terminal 3. To explain the strategy behind this, as well as the benefits to frequent travelers, we turned to business travel expert Road Warriorette



Detroit Metropolitan Airport - DTW

Motor City’s airport is a major hub for Delta Airlines, and one of the airline’s gateways to Asia and Europe. With the completion of the McNamara Terminal in 2002, Detroit Metropolitan has led the way among U.S. airports for efficient design. On international flights, passengers can disembark from two aircraft doors onto dual jetbridges, not just one. Domestic arrivals are streamed directly into the terminal, while international arrivals head downstairs to a Customs processing area that can handle as many as 3,200 people hourly. Speedy, friendly service is a DTW hallmark, say many Detroit Metro veterans.

Flying with Lithium Batteries

The Samsung Note 7 has been the recent subject of a recall due to batteries catching on fire. (Here are instructions for exchanging your phone.) If you haven’t yet exchanged it please note as of October 15, 2016, the US Department of Transportation, with Federal Aviation Administration and the Hazardous Materials Safety Administration announced the ban of all Samsung Galaxy Note7 smartphones on all air transportation in the United States. Meaning the device cannot be brought on a flight either as carry-on, in checked baggage or shipped as air cargo.

Beyond the Note 7, there are plenty of devices that people frequently travel with that have lithium batteries. There are some restrictions on which batteries are allowed, and whether or not they can go in checked or carry-on baggage. For example, do not put spare batteries in checked baggage. If you must gate-check your suitcase, remove all spare batteries from your baggage and put it in your carry-on.

For more information about your specific device, see the US Department of Transportation page on Traveling With Lithium Batteries.
