Rick Steves’ “No-Travel Tips” and an Airline Bailout Update
On the Sunday, August 23rd edition of The Travel Guys…
- In the Travel News, Delta says they will block the middle seats on their aircraft until the 1st of the year. In addition, they will keep smaller, regional aircraft (which do not have middle seats) to 2/3 capacity. Expect some others to follow. Some resort destinations are considering “bubbles,” where you do not leave the resort during your entire stay. Hawaii is on the list.
- Our Smarter Traveler segment covers both the humorous and the serious as we share Rick Steves’ Top No Travel Tips to Europe; and discuss the next decision on airline bailouts. Friend of the show, Joe Brancatelli, opines that the airlines should get no more, even though it means service cuts at his small home airport. Mark agrees, it’s time to stop bailing out companies who treat their customers like crap and are always there with their hands out.
- Sacramento International Airport has announced new service, two nights a week to Mexico City on Volaris Airlines. We have details and an update from the airport.
- We are a town with rail history. No wonder there are some fun rail options. This week, we tell you about the Fox River Train, which includes wine and beer sampling excursions, along with sightseeing trips.
