I was visiting a friend in Berlin and had the opportunity to visit the Berlin-Tempelhof Airport (THF) compliments of GetYourGuide.com.

At the time of visit a number of winter sports were taking place on the runways and the taxiways. If you are an aviation geek, like I am, this is well worth your time and efforts and at 12 EUR, its pretty inexpensive as Guided Tours come.

I’m Sorry The Flight Has A Weight Restriction, You’ve Been Bumped

American Airlines (AA) Boeing 737-800 at the gate in Montego Bay, Jamaica (MBJ)
Have you ever gotten bumped because your flight was weight-restricted? I'm sure you have. Do you know what all this means? Here's my attempt to explain it. The aviation industry started with cargo and then people were added.  So as much as we think that people are the reason for flying, its really cargo.  More money is usually made from cargo and it does not complain .  An airplane is designed with what's called a maximum takeoff weight (MTOW). This is the combined weight of everything, the plane, baggage, fuel, cargo, people, food, etc., everything.
