Travel firms can afford to upset supporters of President Trump

Travel firms can afford to upset supporters of President Trump
Written by Vince Gorin on 2017-02-08


WRITING a few weeks ago, Gulliver envisioned a close partnership between the then president-elect, Donald Trump, and the bosses of tech firms; one that could remove regulation and pave the way to a future of autonomous electric vehicles.Since then politics has intervened. Specifically, Mr Trump signed an executive order barring citizens of seven Muslim-majority countries from travelling to America....(Read More)

Chaos at airports as America introduces a travel ban

Chaos at airports as America introduces a travel ban
Written by Vince Gorin on 2017-02-01


BARELY a week into his presidency, Donald Trump has thrown global travel into tumult with his executive order barring travellers from seven majority-Muslim countries from entering the United States. A fellow Gulliver has posted about the potential long-term implications of the ban for the travel industry. But in the short run, one thing is already clear: President Trump’s action has sown chaos...(Read More)

Britain starts to accept passport photos taken on mobile phones

Britain starts to accept passport photos taken on mobile phones
Written by Vince Gorin on 2017-01-25


DESPITE what doting parents claim, babies are mostly generic-looking. It sometimes takes Gulliver an embarrassing length of time to pick out his own child in old baby-group photos. He certainly wouldn’t recognise her from her passport picture aged four months. Now she is five, with recognisable facial features, she will shortly have to renew her passport. Snapping the new likeness should...(Read More)

Air India may segregate some women passengers for their own safety

Air India may segregate some women passengers for their own safety
Written by Vince Gorin on 2017-01-18


SEGREGATION on airlines has a long history. Sometimes it is understandable. Carriers’ business models depend on them drawing a curtain between those of us stuffed into economy-class seats and our betters who have paid for lie-flat beds. Other times it has been immoral. While racial segregation on American planes was never legal, in some airports during the first half of the 20th century it...(Read More)

British Airways crew walk out over “poverty” pay

British Airways crew walk out over “poverty” pay
Written by Vince Gorin on 2017-01-10


BARRING a last-minute breakthrough, about 2,500 cabin crew members employed by British Airways (BA) will strike this week over alleged “poverty pay” at the airline. Workers originally planned walkouts for the Christmas period, but suspended the action to consider a revised pay offer. Having rejected that offer by a 7-1 margin, the strikes will now occur on 10th and 11th January. BA says the...(Read More)

2017 might be even worse for business travellers than 2016

2017 might be even worse for business travellers than 2016
Written by Vince Gorin on 2017-01-03


THE YEAR 2016 was not a great one for business travellers. In Britain, the Brexit referendum and related collapse in the value of the pound made travelling abroad costly; transport strikes meant getting around was an ordeal for those who stayed put. In continental Europe, terror attacks targeted airports and tourist spots, while striking workers blockaded sea ports, grounded airlines and nobbled...(Read More)

A domestic flight in Libya turns into a European hijacking crisis

A domestic flight in Libya turns into a European hijacking crisis
Written by Vince Gorin on 2016-12-27


NEWS that a domestic flight operated by Afriqiyah Airways, a state-owned Libyan airline, has been hijacked and flown to Europe should shock and appal an industry that has, since 9/11, spared no expense to end the scourge of such horrors. Events are still unfolding, but it is clear that two men claiming to have grenades forced the aircraft, an Airbus A320, to bypass its intended destination of...(Read More)

Qantas is to fly direct between Australia and Britain

Qantas is to fly direct between Australia and Britain
Written by Vince Gorin on 2016-12-13


WHEN the England cricket team travelled to play Australia in the first ever Test match in 1887, the journey down under took around 50 days by steamship. (The Aussies won, as they have mostly continued to do over the subsequent 129 years.) When the team flies out to compete in the latest installment of the Ashes next year, the journey time will be much reduced. If they fly from London to Perth...(Read More)
