On the Saturday, February 3rd edition of The Travel Guys…
- In the Travel News, most of the news is BAD. Las Vegas hotels are raising resort fees and restaurants are raising their prices for the Super Bowl, Uber’s rides continue to cost more, Jet Blue is going to charge you for advance seat selection for more seats on every flight, and the fees on Delta’s credit card are going up 50%.
- Our Smarter Traveler segment talks about an endangered species – customer service. Case in point, American Airlines is cutting hundreds of call center positions that handle travel issues and complaints. And telling us it’s going to make American BETTER. Can you say BS?
- Our Odds and Ends segment features stories about how travel companies are collecting your private information to create pricing, hidden cameras in vacation rentals and why you might need a special class to learn how to negotiate a Disney theme park.
- Charlie Leocha from Travelers United joins us to talk about the crowd coming in the skies. Charlie says flying cars, drones and other traffic is about to compete with airplanes and it’s time to consider some regulations. Crazy? Maybe not.
