A tale of two halves

Apr 30th, 2012 | By

Some readers might have spotted that I have been travelling recently. For 12 days I have lived out of a small, carry-on wheelie case. But as I picked up things it grew fatter.

The add-ons are those little bits here and there that suddenly glare out at you on the final page and cause you to take a deep breath and say, “but the fare was only a tenner!” when I started. Now one of the biggest airline ticketing systems providers, Amadeus, has completed some research which shows that last year these add-ons were worth €15.11 billion.



Happy 30th Birthday

May 18th, 2011 | By

ow many loyalty cards do you have? A nectar card. A Tesco one. Maybe one for Boots. If you’re a regular flyer you might have one for an airline or a hotel chain. And then you might be a sad case like me who has a bulging wallet with some 20 odd cards.
But the granddaddy of them all is from American Airlines which this month, celebrates its thirtieth birthday.
