Las Vegas hosts the ultimate New Year’s Eve celebration and gives visitors an incentive to start a resolution

Most people will say nothing beats New Year’s Eve at Times Square. Las Vegas probably comes in a close second.

America’s Party will have one of the largest pyrotechnic firework shows in the world, along with impressive nightclub parties and concerts by A-list performers for an extraordinary rendezvous, along with decadent culinary offerings from world-class chefs. Everyone can find an extraordinary way to ring in 2014 in the destination.

Airport observation decks around the world

For a while, airport observation decks were slowly going away due to security concerns and the need for more terminal space. However, they’re starting to make a comeback.

This list outlines many airports around the world with observation areas, many of them in the open air, offering easy access from the terminal building. (While there are many “plane spotter” vantage points near airports, this chart covers observation decks located at or within the main airport buildings.) So rejoice, fellow aviation geeks, and anyone wishing to get a whiff of fresh air — or jet fuel.

After sale, Frontier to become ultra-low-cost airline

Indigo Partners, which bought Frontier Airlines from Republic Holdings, is turning the airline into an ultra low-cost carrier.

Airlines like that, including Spirit Airlines, generally charge low fares but have fees for things like using the overhead bin or printing a boarding pass at the airport.

William Franke runs Indigo, and used to be Spirit’s chairman. He says demand is growing for more affordable airline options.
