Here’s some more travel news you can use:

  • Former Bay Watch star Donna D’Errico is calling foul on the TSA for pulling her aside at the airport for “extra” screening – simply because she’s attractive.  When she asked the agent why she was picked to go through the body scan, he only responded with, “because you caught my eye.”  She said that after the search, she noticed the male TSA agent who had pulled her out of line was smiling and whispering with two other TSA agents and glancing at her.  ”I was outraged,” she said.
  • Earlier today the folks at hotels.com issued some unique tips for families that are traveling this holiday season.  They explain how to take the entire yuletide season on the road, props included.  If you’re traveling with kids, you’ll want to give this one a read.
  • A US Airways flight from Newark to Phoenix was diverted to Pittsburgh this morning after a passenger’s small dog got loose and bit a flight attendant and another passenger.  Flight 522 from Newark, an Airbus carrying 122 passengers, landed at Pittsburgh International Airport, where medical personnel treated the two people who were bitten.  US Airways said the passenger with the dog was supposed to keep it in its cage under her seat, which is the airline’s policy.  But she took it out and the animal ran loose.
