I flew in a seaplane for the first time, and I'd say it's easily the most fun way to fly

[Seaplane Trans Maldivan Airways DS 3.JPG]David Slotnick/Business Insider * I recently had the chance to spend five nights in the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island, a unique luxury resort in the Maldives, thanks to a pile of Hilton hotel points I'd been saving up. * To get to the resort, which is located on two private islands, you have to take a seaplane from the Maldives' main international airport in Malé. * The hotel arranges the seaplane for guests through Trans Maldivian Airways, a unique airline that exclusively flies seaplanes. * The airline flies about 50 de Havilland Canada DHC-6 Twin Otter planes modified to land and take off on water. * It was my first time on a seaplane, and I had an absolute blast. Here's what it was like. * Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. MY WIFE AND I LANDED AT MALÉ AFTER A 90-MINUTE FLIGHT FROM SRI LANKA, AND DISEMBARKED ONTO THE TARMAC. WE WERE NEXT TO THE TERMINAL BUILDING, SO WE WERE ABLE TO WALK RIGHT OVER INSTEAD OF GETTING ON A BUS. David Slotnick/Business Insider ONCE WE WERE THROUGH CUSTOMS, WE FOUND A REPRESENTATIVE FROM OUR RESORT, WHO BROUGHT US TO A DEDICATED SEAPLANE CHECK-IN AREA. David Slotnick/Business Insider OUR HOTEL REPRESENTATIVE CHECKED US IN, WHILE THE STAFF FOR THE SEAPLANE OPERATOR — TRANS MALDIVIAN AIRWAYS — WEIGHED OUR BAGS. David Slotnick/Business Insider There's a strict weight limit for bags, since the planes are so small and it's important to keep them balanced and stay below weight limits. If your luggage is above weight, you can pay an excess baggage fee — it's fairly inexpensive — but if your plane is full and bags are too overweight, there's a chance the airline may have to deliver your luggage to you at the hotel on a later flight. SEE THE REST OF THE STORY AT BUSINESS INSIDER SEE ALSO: * The most reliable SUVs, pickup trucks, sedans for 2020 * Greece's national airline is undergoing a massive brand overhaul to be more Greek with the help of a world-class design firm * Delta and United flight attendants reveal how they spot victims of human trafficking SEE ALSO: I SURVIVED A 17-HOUR FLIGHT DELAY ON UNITED DURING A 13-HOUR BUSINESS CLASS TRIP FROM NEW JERSEY TO INDIA. HERE'S WHY THE ORDEAL ACTUALLY MADE ME APPRECIATE THE AIRLINE.

I flew first class on Delta from Orlando to New York and found it wasn't anywhere close to worth the extra cost

[Delta Elite Status Day Trip]Thomas Pallini/Business Insider * I flew on in first class on one of Delta Air Lines' newest narrow-body jets, the Airbus A321, from Florida to New York. * I was upgraded into the premium cabin thanks to my Silver Medallion status, which otherwise would've cost $159. * While the seat was comfortable and had good amenities, the lack of service due to the late hour of the flight made for an unmemorable flight.  * Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. On a recent flight from Orlando to New York, I got to experience Delta's domestic first-class product on one of its newest narrow-body aircraft, the Airbus A321. Delta recently acquired more Airbus aircraft to complement its fleet and became the latest airline to fly the A321 when it took delivery of the type in 2016. The A321s feature one of the largest first-class cabins found on Delta narrow-body aircraft with 20 seats spread across five rows. Due to the light passenger load of the flight, Delta was selling upgrades for as low as $159 and nearly all elite status holders were upgraded into the cabin from economy.  Here's what it's like to fly in first-class on the route.  MY JOURNEY IN DELTA FIRST CLASS ACTUALLY STARTED OUT IN ECONOMY. I WAS INITIALLY BOOKED IN COACH FOR THIS FLIGHT BUT WAS UPGRADED INTO THE CABIN THANKS TO MY SILVER MEDALLION ELITE STATUS ON DELTA. Thomas Pallini/Business Insider THOUGH IT'S NORMALLY TOUGH FOR A LOWLY SILVER MEDALLION MEMBER TO GET UPGRADED, THE FLIGHT WAS ON A TUESDAY NIGHT AND WOULD LIKELY BE LIGHTLY LOADED TOURISTS. CASE IN POINT: THERE WERE 5 OPEN FIRST-CLASS SEATS AND 74 OPEN ECONOMY SEATS WHEN I GOT TO THE GATE. Thomas Pallini/Business Insider TO MY SURPRISE, MY UPGRADE CLEARED AS SOON AS I CHECKED IN WHILE PAID UPGRADES WERE GOING FOR $159. AFTER MY EXPERIENCE, HOWEVER, I DIDN'T THINK IT WAS WORTH THE PRICE TAG. Thomas Pallini/Business Insider SEE THE REST OF THE STORY AT BUSINESS INSIDER SEE ALSO: * Delta says it will spend $1 billion to be carbon neutral, the latest airline announcing a radical shift to make flying less destructive * I took 3 Delta flights in one day after finally getting elite status to see if it's really worth having — here's what I discovered * Greece's national airline is undergoing a massive brand overhaul to be more Greek with the help of a world-class design firm SEE ALSO: DELTA CEO: PASSENGERS SHOULD ASK PERMISSION BEFORE RECLINING THEIR SEATS ON PLANES READ MORE: I TOOK 3 DELTA FLIGHTS IN ONE DAY AFTER FINALLY GETTING ELITE STATUS TO SEE IF IT'S REALLY WORTH HAVING — HERE'S WHAT I DISCOVERED

Greece’s refugee plan is inhumane and doomed to fail. The EU must step in

The government wants to create massive detention centres, but this is being resisted by locals and refugees alike Since the start of the year, Greece’s reception system for migrants has imploded. A spike of arrivals over the past few months, caused by Turkey’s police operations removing refugees and asylum seekers from its western coastal cities and sending them back to the regions where they were registered, has pushed the existing accommodation to its limits. Between September 2019 and January 2020, the Greek government transferred 14,750 people from the islands to the mainland, as 36,000 new arrivals crossed the Aegean to Greece from Turkey. While the system is unable to absorb any more people, efforts to establish additional camps in the mainland and new detention centres on the islands have met strong resistance from local communities.
