Luxury hotels in Rajasthan, India

No place in India exemplifies the spirit of monarchy and the splendor of royalty better than the state of Rajasthan. The very name contains royalty: Raja translates to “king” and sthan refers to “place” in Hindi and other Indian languages. When the British left India, there were about two dozen princely states in the region, which merged into the new Union of India, along with other princedoms around the country. The erstwhile royalty was allowed to retain their properties and was granted an...

An American Airlines executive reveals why its exposure to the grounding of the Boeing 737 Max has been limited (BA, AAL)

The Boeing 737 Max has been grounded since March 13. As a result, American Airlines had to withdraw its 24 737 Max jetliners from service with little to no notice.  American has pulled the Boeing jet from its flight schedules until August 19 resulting in the cancelation of 115 flights per day. Unlike other airlines, American's 737 Max fleet is based at a single hub in Miami. This strategy has been a fortuitous development for the airline and limited the harm done by the fallout from the ground...
