I will be on assignment in Europe between May 10 and May 30 attending the Institute of Travel & Meetings Annual Conference at Chelsea FC, Stamford Bridge, London, England (May12 & 13) and the IMEX 2010 Incentive Travel, Meetings & Events Exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany (May 25, 26 & 27). I am looking to fill my schedule in the time between these two events (May 14-24) covering a number of business travel; meetings, incentives, conventions & events topics. I already have some tentative plans in Liverpool, London, Paris and Frankfurt – if anyone has any assignment suggestions or “must see” recommendations related to business travel or meetings, incentives, conventions & events topics please let me know…

Hey, I'm doing a story for Business Traveler magazine on trends in premium economy class service and looking for some experts to share their perspectives. Anyone interested in commenting and/ or have any recommendations for sources? Thanks!

Congrats on BoardingArea, Carol! Re your comment/question on Clear Lanes, it's a very good one. I don't know the answer, but you might try also posing it in the Airfares/Air Travel group.

Anyone else missing the Clear lanes that were at various U.S. airports? I'm missing Clear Card greatly. In Orlando, there are no first class lanes so we get in line with all of the families and tourists. I heard a rumor that another company was going to revive the Clear Card, but haven't heard any firm details. Does anyone know?

Effective Nov 1, passengers on international flights will be charged additional fees. This comes from the U.S. Dept of Argiculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service. Look for a fee of $5.50 on each international segment of your trip.

In this travel climate it seems like a really bad idea. Many companies are no longer allowing paid business class travel. Any other airline that previously tried this, in better times, failed. I don't think they will be able to sustain this. They're not even filling up their normal flights with paid business class seats. A lot of those seats are still getting filled with upgrades. Unless they' have a bigger plan to change their whole faring model, I think this will bring them deeper into the whole they already can't afford.

So British Airways finally went and launched its all-business-class flights. Any thoughts from the peanut gallery on how that's likely to work out for them?

Are you longing for the days where you can smoke on a flight?
Ryanair's new marketing ploy is to sell you their own "smokeless" cigarettes.
This will gain them the revenue lost by discontinuing their bathroom tolls.
2 more reasons to breath a sigh of relief.
I think they're just gearing up for their standing room only flights. They have to off you something.
Comment by Andrea Grill on September 30, 2009 at 11:35am has changed their hotel booking cancellation fees. While some hotels may still charge their own cancellation fees, Orbitz will not tack on any of their own fees. This does not include their general cancellation policies where hotels are included in a total packaged deal.

The Department of State is alerting U.S. citizens to the quarantine measures imposed by the government of China in response to the 2009-H1N1 pandemic that may affect travel to China. The Alert updates the July 9, 2009, Travel Alert in order to advise U.S. citizens of the current quarantine situation. This Travel Alert expires on Dec. 30, 2009. In May 2009, China implemented a policy that allows it to quarantine arriving passengers who exhibit fever or flu-like symptoms. Although the overall percentage of U.S. citizens being quarantined remains low, the nature of the selection process makes it almost impossible to predict when a traveler may be placed into quarantine. From May to August 2009, the Department of State received thousands of reports of quarantined U.S. citizens. Since September, however, reports of U.S. citizens in quarantine have been infrequent.
