Go ahead... book the flight!

Although the back to school commercials are airing and the countdowns to college football have started, summer is not over yet. There is still a lot of fun to be had before a new school year and a new season kicks off. Which means, you can squeeze in one last trip.

So, where are you headed?

Or, I guess a better question would be, who are you flying? Sometimes even the best vacation destinations can be marred by a pool travel experience. I think we can all pinpoint an experience that was less than stellar while traveling.

Not all travel experiences can be avoided. Some have to do with weather or power outages. These can't be helped, but crews have learned how to keep a smile on your face during the process.

Well, some better than others.

Here are the Points Guy rankings from worst to best.
