Coronavirus and cruise ship travel

The line between legitimate concern and paranoia is a fine one, and in the close confines of a cruise ship, that line gets broken pretty easily. Surrounded in small quarters by thousands of strangers from all over the world, the thought of even a tiny pathogen in the air can send people into an all-out panic. And when COVID-2019 — aka the coronavirus — is leading the evening news every night, well, imaginations can run wild. On cruise ships, it’s not a completely unreasonable fear. Last year...

Most beautiful villages in Austria

With each popular film or television show comes a deluge of tourists to the production’s filming location or the fictional setting where it takes place. Take, as examples, the boom of visitors in Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast and Northern Ireland to see where Game of Thrones was filmed or the tourism industry built around the Lord of the Rings movie series. Now, the same is happening in fairytale-esque Hallstatt, Austria, where fans of the Frozen franchise are crowding the Alpine hamlet (even tho...

Business Travel – And Airline Stocks – Are Collapsing

Since this morning we’ve learned that Amazon is telling employees to defer non-essential domestic business travel. After mentioning this on Twitter I’ve seen others reply that their companies are doing the same and pulling out of trade shows. The value of going to trade shows drops (they are a perfect example of network effects) and the reduction in travel spreads, along with a further reduction in economy activity. A 12% selloff in the markets over the last week may not be wrong. Continue readi...

Bus tour of Denali National Park

If you only have one day in Denali National Park and want to get deep into the park, you’ll have to hop on a bus. Self transit is not a viable option deep into the park, so leave the car at your lodging or campsite — which actually works in your favor because you can focus on what’s happening beyond the highway. You have two options: a tour bus or a transit bus. No matter which you choose, allow a full day that starts early and keeps you busy into the early evening. The tour bus option reliev...

Is American Airlines Going To Add A New Australia Route?

When the American Airlines-Qantas joint venture was first announced I expected that an early route addition would be Dallas Fort-Worth - Brisbane. The head of the Brisbane airport expected it, too, and the CEO of Qantas International predicted their Boeing 787s made the most sense flying Brisbane to LA or Dallas. Before Qantas began operating an Airbus A380 on the Sydney - Dallas route the flight was on a Boeing 747 and from Dallas to Sydney had to make a stop in Brisbane (but flew non-stop fro...
