Airlines expanding summer flights to meet growing demand
On the Sunday, April 25th edition of The Travel Guys…
- In the Travel News, airlines are expanding summer flight schedules to meet growing travel demand and Hawaii reports hotel numbers are going up each month. Sadly, the Hotel Pennsylvania, the New York Hotel whose phone number, Pennsylvania 6-5,000, became a hit for Glenn Miller, is likely to stay closed. It shut down during the pandemic and its owner wants to demolish the hotel and turn it into a mixed-use tower, something it has been trying to do for nearly 20 years.
- In our Smarter Traveler segment, we introduce you to CLEAR, a better way to get through security lines at airports. CLEAR arrived in Sacramento in March and we have Mitch Nadler from the company with us to explain how it works, how much is costs and how you can join. In Mark’s Just One Man’s Opinion piece, he warns us that fuel surcharges are coming to travel very soon, and why on some level, the charges are legit.
- The second half of the show is for your input on the restart of travel. We open the phone lines, bribe you with an offer of possibly winning a See’s Candy Gift Card, and give you the opportunity to share your opinions. Are you ready to travel now? Still waiting for a while? Where are you on vaccines for getting into theaters and events? It’s always interesting to hear our audience’s take. If you are reading this after the show is broadcast, you can hear the comments on the podcast. The link can be found on this page.
