The Morning Shave
This 24-day Private Jet Trip Will Take You to Every Disney Park Around the World. – For $110k per person, this trip is purely for the rich and famous. But, how amazing would it be to travel around the world in a private jet to visit all of the Disney parks? I love visiting the Disney parks, but not so much that I’d take out a mortgage on my house to pay for it.
With Flight Delays and Cancellations Still High, Demand for Train Travel Is Peaking. – Trains do take more time than planes for longer distances, but their departure is rarely affected by weather or staffing shortages that are plaguing the airlines. And, for shorter distances, train travel could actually be quicker. There are no TSA security lines, and you don’t have to show up 1-2 hours before departure.
Airfares are going up. Blame full planes, not fuel prices. – While fuel prices are a big concern, the biggest issues are the delays resulting from weather and staffing shortages. And the airlines’ answer to the problem is to cut flight schedules. This creates some slack in their operations to move planes & staff around to address delays. However, reducing the supply of seats available when travel demand is surging leads to higher prices. Simple Econ 101. Maybe it wasn’t such a good idea to force so many pilots & flight attendants into retirement two years ago?
Venice: Day visitors must register and pay a fee. – I can see more and more cities taking a similar approach when visitors enjoy all of the city’s amenities, yet spend fewer dollars. They may just be driving through or hopping aboard a cruise ship. Either way, the loss of tax dollars on hotel rooms is a major blow to their budget. And this is a good way to limit the “over-tourism” that many cities complain about when some tourists change plans to avoid the fees.
The Data You Store Can Break Your Guest Experience: Here is a Quick Guide on How to Keep Information Safe. – Hotels store massive amounts of data about their guests. Name, address, ID, credit card, loyalty number, and so much more. With limited staffing and hotels cutting corners to stay in business, there is a massive opportunity for hackers to steal your data. Keep watch on your credit report and limit how much information you give to hotels.
