Low Cost Airlines - Choosing A Destination To Fly To
2008-05-07 15:29:00
Low Cost Airlines - Choosing A Destination To Fly ToIn years gone by the jet set life of the playboy was something that the multitude of us could only sit back and envy, longing to be able to travel the world taking in the richest cities on the planet and going away on holidays at the drop of a hat. But now with the development of the internet travel industry and the growth of the low cost airline companies we can all sample a slight bit of the playboy lifestyle, albeit not in as much luxury as the rich playboys of this world but at least we can get to see some of the finer places on the planet. The low cost airlines generally travel to airports that are in the vicinity of popular cities and not usually direct to the city itself but for a small cost it is usually possible to get a train or coach directly from your airport into the heart of the major city. So where are the most popular destinations that the low cost airlines fly to and what is there to do when you are there?One of th...

Top 10 Reasons Motor Homes are Better than Planes
2008-05-07 15:25:00
Top 10 Reasons Motor Homes are Better than Planes 1. Stewardesses are evil. At some point in the history of air travel, "stewardess" went from being this sexy, glamorous job to crabby drink server. Which makes sense, because it's only a plane. But since 9/11 each one thinks they're the last line of defense to the cockpit. Any complaint, no matter how rational, means you could spend the rest of the flight on the ground in flex-cuffs.2. Planes are cramped. I don't care how much faster they get you there, it is not fun having to sit on a glorified bus for an hour to five hours, surrounded by people you would happily ignore any other time, even if they were on fire.3. Motor homes can take you more places. The idea that travel is just about going to another city for a few days is limited. What about pro or college football tailgating? You think a Packers tailgate party would be less fun or more with an RV that has a kitchen, tables, TV and bathroom? I'm thinking it would be more - one...

JetBlue Discount Airline Tickets Going in for the Kill Shot With Delta in bankruptcy we see the more successful discount air carriers going in to the kill. JetBlue is expanding, buying planes and opening routes while fuel costs are at a record high and other airlines are in bankruptcy. Delta and Northwest are both jettisoning some of their aircraft from their fleets, closing some routes and giving away some gates at some of the busiest airports.Because JetBlue’s cost structure is lower and it operates in a hybrid model, rather than the standard spoke and hub routing structure it can fly for less. By having cheaper fairs it has consistently had fuller flights. Their hybrid point-to-point and larger Hub and Spoke model at its largest airport markets it is able to get the benefit of maximum efficiency. It’s newer aircraft are also more efficient, which is helping in its per passenger cost model.Some folks are worried about pre-paying for tickets on a bankrupt airline and skeptical e...

Five Best Holiday Spots To Enjoy With Children Deciding on the next vacation with your family can be a daunting task, especially when your choice of place does not interest your children. You might plan to visit Alaska, but your children could be longing for a trip to the Bahamas. The best option is to figure out where your kids wish to go this vacation and finalize a kid-friendly destination.With the release of movies like 'Madagascar', children have become all the more keen to travel through exotic and adventurous destinations. While Madagascar is not considered to be the most popular family destination, a trip to other places like Costa Rica or Kenya can prove to be an invaluable fun-filled learning experience, well within your budget. Costa Rica serves a dual purpose as your children can learn Spanish as they explore the lush green rain forests or erupting volcanoes. Even Kenya can be a good option, as the family can learn to speak a little Swahili while exploring the rare glim...

Exchange Holiday Villas For An Enjoyable Vacation

Exchange Holiday Villas For An Enjoyable Vacation All you need to participate in home exchange is a home! You need not have to compare values of the house or search for a swapping partner in the case of a home similar to yours. It just requires identifying a home where you and your family can stay comfortably in the destination you wish to visit. You need to search for a person or a family with whom you would be comfortable exchanging your home with, for a short period of time. In home exchange, you would be taking care of other family's home, as well as enjoying the country while they would be doing the same from your home.People who have traveled places would know that the most expensive part of traveling is paying hotel bills. In many cases, vacations cannot last for long mainly because of the sky high accommodation expenses. Holiday home exchange is one of the most simple and intelligent ways to cut down on accommodation expenses. It is an equal trade for both the families and e...

Visitors guideRule One. Never, ever arrive between the hours of 20.00h and 08.00h. You may save 50 pounds on the flight, but your will be off to a bad start. Oh, and hire a car, don't asked to be collected from the airport.Rule Two. At the first opportunity go to the local supermarket and stock the fridge and larder with all that you will need for your stay and more, beers, wines, brandies, meat, bread, butter, your favourite snacks...everything!Rule Three. Your hosts are not on holiday, you and your family are. Their home is not an hotel. You could go off on a day trip on your own, with your children.

Peter Greeenberg – travel editor for NBC's The Today Show, spoke over lunch and moderated the final discussion.Mr. Greenberg agreed that in many cases there is an economic justification for using private jets, especially if flying multiple executives together. The taxi service, he said, is a good idea.

Why the Airlines are Tanking
2008-03-16 11:16:00
Why the Airlines are TankingOver and above the rising cost of fuel, the airline industry has more than lost its way. I’m talking about the overall customer experience. In the last few months of travel, my experiences have been nothing short of terrible. Late flights, missed connections, no explanations, no help. Now I understand that stuff happens when traveling for business or pleasure. But really, how can an industry who relies upon its passengers to make money lose the entire concept of the customer experience?Jet Blue is among the exceptions. When they screw up, they acknowledge this to their passengers and entire customer base. This is something I appreciate. I have not been on Southwest so I cannot put them in this category. Two of my recent experiences were both with US Air. One was a missed connection for the last flight out to Boston for the evening.They kept making promises about most of us “should” make our connection. But then when we didn’t, there were...

Jet Blue and Brooklyn Ferry
2008-03-16 11:01:00
Jet Blue and Brooklyn Ferry by Mark DotyI'm writing from JFK, sitting at the gate at the Jet Blue terminal waiting for my plane to Ft Lauderdale. I spent all yesterday at Rutgers in New Brunswick, giving a talk on Whitman, meeting lots of students and faculty, and generally having a fine time. My talk was called "Whitman in Tears," and the amazing graphics people at Rutgers had made one of the best posters ever: an image of Whitman in his guise as the "Good Gray Poet," long beard, long hair, crumpled wayfarer hat, crinkled eyes gazing directly at the viewer. It's a beautiful, complex image, and they'd printed it large, on a sepia field, with the title of the talk in cursive beneath the beard and then a smaller picture of yours truly off to the right. My head and Whitman's are tilted so that we seem to be giving each other the eye.The poster was everywhere, and in the room where I gave the talk, a whole bank of Walt Whitmans stood behind me -- consoling, challenging, full of pre...

Lufthansa Says it Wants to Keep Growing, By Itself if Necessary
2008-03-13 15:15:00
Lufthansa Says it Wants to Keep Growing , By Itself if NecessaryFRANKFURT (AFP) — The German airline Lufthansa plans to keep growing alone if necessary, based on sustained demand combined with its pursuit of cost-cutting measures, the carrier said Wednesday. "2007 was not the summit" for Lufthansa, chief executive Wolfgang Mayrhuber told a press conference in Frankfurt.The biggest German airline had a record year in 2007, with an operating profit of 1.38 billion euros (2.12 billion dollars) and net profit of 1.66 billion, helped in part by asset sales and a favourable German tax reform. In 2008, it wants to "renew, and if possible surpass the very good results of last year," Mayrhuber said, without providing detailed figures.The airline faces several challenges however, as oil prices hit successive record highs, financial markets remain unstable and perspectives for the global economy are hard to clarify. Lufthansa expected its kerosene bill to grow to 4.9 billion euros this year, ...
JFK Hub Link with Jet Blue - Lufthansa plans
2008-03-13 14:56:00
Lufthansa plans JFK Hub Link with Jet Blue Lufthansa plans to use Jet Blue as its feeder partner in New York by linking booking systems and frequent-flyer programmes. The German airline said the link-up with the US carrier, in which Lufthansa took a 19 per cent stake at the end of last year, was aimed at creating a quasi-hub at JFK airport. It said the move would add to the benefits of owning BMI British Midland, the UK airline in which Lufthansa holds a stake of just under 30 per cent and in which it has an option to buy a majority stake from December.The German carrier has long wanted to challenge its rival British Airways on the lucrative routes between London Heathrow and the US. Buying out Sir Michael Bishop, BMI's founder and chairman, would give Lufthansa BMI's 11 per cent of take-off and landing slots at London's main airport, making the German carrier the second biggest slot holder at Heathrow.Wolfgang Mayrhuber, Lufthansa chief executive, would not be drawn about taking ...

Jet Blue | An Airline Terminal for a Security - Wary Era
2008-03-13 14:51:00
An Airline Terminal for a Security -Wary EraFrom the moment that passengers first arrive at Jet Blue Airways’ $750 million terminal at Kennedy International Airport in September, they will face an unmistakably post-9/11 world.Most airline terminals have been jury-rigged since 2001 to accommodate all the extra security workers and equipment. But Jet Blue’s new Terminal 5 is among the first in the United States designed from the ground up after the terrorist attacks.The 340-foot-wide security checkpoint will dominate the departures hall the way ticket counters once did, occupying the focal point of the Y-shaped building. There will be 20 security lanes. “They were sized with the idea that passengers have luggage, have children, have wheelchairs and have special needs,” said William R. DeCota, director of aviation at the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs Kennedy.After running the security gantlet, travelers will find a lot of benches where they can pull thems...

It's maddening - so close, and yet so frustratingly far. If you're a member of discount airline Jet Blue's True Blue program, that's not going to be an issue.

EDS' Next Big Thing Blog: Read and Respond to What the EDS Fellows Say About Technology For centuries the workers of the world have had to locate within commuting distance of their work. It was necessary because their work could hardly travel to where they lived. Not anymore. The paradigm of moving work to people rather than moving people to work is being adopted more and more by progressive companies who understand that there are benefits that devolve both to the enterprise as well as to employees.For the employee working at a remote location, telework provides for a choice in lifestyle, living where they want to live, as well as reduction in time (and energy) spent commuting. According to the US census, the average worker spends more than 100 hours a year commuting. During this time they consume approximately 150 gallons of gasoline, which in these days of $3 per gallon of gas is about $500 of after tax income.For the enterprise, telework allows for greater diversity in the organ...
Jet Blue’s Auction: Rate Blues
2008-03-05 14:42:00
Jet Blue’s Auction -Rate Blues When Jet Blue announced earnings a little over a month ago, nobody asked a question that should be standard on all calls these days: How much of their short-term investments were in auction-rate securities. The answer, according to the 10-K filed last Friday, was that as of December 31, auction-rate securities accounted for 72% of $834 million in cash and investment securities. At $611 million, they accounted for nearly all investment securities.Jet Blue is hardly alone with such big auction-rate exposure, as I noted here in a recent story about how cash turns to trash. But for a company as capital intensive as an airline, such a large stake in something as potentially illiquid these days as auction-rate securities is noteworthy. (Though, to be fair, investors didn’t have a reason to ask because Jet Blue hadn’t previously disclosed that its investment securities included auction-rate securities. Makes you wonder how many other companies haven’t, ...

ABIA Offering More Direct Flights

ABIA Offering More Direct Flights Nearly nine million passengers fly in and out Austin Bergstrom International Airport every year. Passenger counts went up 7.5% over 2007. Airport officials say that could be what's drawing more airlines to launch more direct flights out of ABIA.Seven airlines announced in February new non-stop flights to and from ABIA. Each one will launch by mid-May.“Non-stop flights are the best way to travel,” said ABIA traveler Dave Chandran. Chandran flies out of ABIA several times a month for business. When he can, he flies non-stop."I get a lot of non-stops, actually more and more every year," said Chandran.Airport officials say the new non-stop flights coming in and out of ABIA could ultimately lower fares; that's because more airlines are adding those non-stop flights, creating new competition. "Anytime you have to pay less to get better service I guess it's a better deal; can't complain," said traveler Miguel Lopez.Southwest, Northwest, American, A...
