Linking the Travel Industry is a business travel podcast where we review the top travel industry stories that are posted on LinkedIn by LinkedIn members. We curate the top posts and discuss with them with travel industry veterans in a live session with real audience members. You can join the live recording session by visiting BusinessTravel360.com and registering for the next event.
Your Hosts are Riaan van Schoor, Ann Cederhall and Aash Shravah.
Stories covered on this session include -
- A GBTA | Global Business Travel Association study reveals expectations of a strong rebound in business travel for 2023.
- Matthew Parsons tells us about JetBlue's second transatlantic destination here. Any guesses?
- The US Department of Transport (DOT) fined several airlines (including international ones) large amounts for dragging their feet when it comes to refunds, especially during Covid affected flight disruptions. I saw several posts about this. What is interesting is that it includes non-US airlines such as TAP Air Portugal and EL AL Israel Airlines.
- Airline ancillary revenue will increase to $102.8 billion worldwide in 2022, compared to $65.8 billion in 2021 and the $109.5 billion record of 2019.
- You can now bet on which airline will cancel the most flights over Thanksgiving.
- British Airways becomes the first UK airline to trial biometric technology aimed at allowing their customers to travel internationally without having to show their passports.
