For some reason, each time I travel from berk to the school, or anywhere else, while i'm flying my dragon is going mega slow. Even using space for  the speed boost isn't working. When I dive down, it's normal speed. But when I try to fly up towards the rings, its very hard/slow or hesitates before moving up a few inches. Is it a glitch? Or is something up with my Whispering Death?

I found the same thing. I was doing a self-roleplay (as in, just me, all alone), and went to fly from the School to the Wilderness, then from there to Berk, and my Nightmare was incredibly slow. I thought it might be that the rings were just extra large and far apart, but now I guess not since I'm not the only one who noticed.

Yeah. It wasn't just one time

Yeah. It wasn't just one time either. It happened multiple times. Gonna try it with my pain slot to see if it'll do the same to a nadder.

Hello, everyone. To check,

Hello, everyone. To check, you do gain speed when diving and it is slightly slower when climbing to higher altitudes. Taking this into account, is your dragon's speed unnaturally slow when climbing or flying in any other direction than diving? Do you notice this issue only occurs when flying between locations?

I'd have to go through it again to check those, gimme a moment...

 

Okay, the diving/climbing mechanics are still the same, but the general flight speed is definitely slower. I'm thinking that it's not as slow now, though, as it was the last few times. And it does only occur when going between locations.

The Timberjack Taxi is the same, too -just tried it out-

Again, it's not as slow as it was before, but it's still slower than normal.

Same

Yep. My dragon is quite fast in normal play (berk, wilderness, school), but it's painstakingly slow between places. Tried it with my main profile too, a nadder, and it was slow too between places.

The same

All the same. My Zippleback is flying well inside locations but travelling for one to another is really slow, and the taxi is too. Diving increase speed but all other directions are slow down. The thing occurred some time back - I thought about some uploading had change that - but I found it is not a great problem when you have the boat to travel to Berk and the gallery to go to the Wilderness.

*raises hand*

I discovered this problem not too long ago as well. I think it's been there a while,just that I didn't realise; I don't travel between places using my own dragon nor the taxi very much.

Airfares and lodging rates

Airfares and lodging rates keep going up, making travel increasingly difficult in a fragile global economy. However, with sharing sites like Airbnb, the lodging costs at least can be significantly reduced, if you are willing to embrace the unconventional. If nothing else, one has to admire air carriers for uniformity, as a fresh round of airfares rising has been reported. However, fuel costs are still extremely high.
