Travel tips: Money no object, bargain hunting

If money is no object, The Examiner recommends a business-class flight to Orlando.

What: Flying business-class to Orlando

Where: From San Francisco International Airport

How much: Starting at $394 (one-way)

Why: From the Bay Area, there are few direct flights to Orlando. However, Air Tran Airways is offering a great deal to travel in luxury and comfort: business-class seats starting at $394, one-way. The 5-hour route to Orlando makes one stop at the low-fare airline's hub in Atlanta, at which you will take a one-hour hop to your final destination. Although Air Tran does not offer meal service on any of its flights, business-class travelers can enjoy extra-wide, comfortable seats, free drinks and more than 200 stations of FM radio.

Bargain hunter

What: Catching a real space shuttle launch

Where: From Melbourne Beach or anywhere along Florida’s Space Coast

Why: This summer, plan on being at a beach on Florida’s Space Coast to catch a real shuttle launch. This summer’s scheduled launches will be on: June 8 at 7:34 p.m.; June 30 at 5:13 p.m.; July 2 at noon; Aug. 3, TBA; Aug. 26 at 7:50 p.m.; and Aug. 28, TBA.
