  • Greetings Group,
    On Thursday, June 17th, I will be testifying before the Senate Commerce regarding the Continental/United merger. As a consumer, I feel that reducing our network carriers effectively to three carriers is asking for the disappearance of competition. Domestically there will be Delta, United and American with more than 50% of the traffic and internationally, the alliances will control 85% of the traffic. A consumer nightmare and another industry with members "too big to fail."

    I am also working like mad speaking with staffers to mandate that airlines report their fees to central reservation systems at the same time they announce airfares. This way the online systems can figure out a way to allow consumers to compare total air transportation cost. Airfares and beginning to mean less and less with penny airfares already showing up on Spirit.

    Please, all of you writers, take a look at this portion of the FAA reauthorization. We need articles stating that consumers should know the total costs for air travel including airline fees as they do their travel planning, not only at the time of purchase.

    If you want to talk about it, send email to me at leocha@consumertravelalliance.org.

    Thanks for your help.
  • Interesting topic on the Airfares/Air Travel group: are video surveillance cameras on airplane cabins a step too far? CLICK HERE to opine!
  • Are there any press cruises coming up and who are the pr contacts?

    Wonderful assignment, even though personally I dislike soccer. I would love to see stories about getting from town to town and around town during the cup madness. Is there adequate transportation? Are the fans (make that hooligans) rowdy or under control? What is the security like? The little stuff people do not get much of in the main stream media. Thanks and ENJOY!
  • I will be covering Cape Winelands, Cape Town, and Durban for the World Cup. I will also be visiting Egypt as well. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    "List of PR Contacts and their Clients?
    Hi, I am a freelance travel writer with over 750 articles published in the US and worldwide (print and web) and would love to be put in touch with PR folks who have travel clients and who run press trips for writers. I wonder if such a list of PR companies and their clients exists? If not, I'd be more than happy for public relations companies to contact me with a view to adding me to their database for any upcoming trips. Clips of my work are available on request. I would need airfare provided and I live in San Francisco. Many thanks."

    Again, please reply NOT on this comment wall but only at this link.
  • Jon & Lana, Thanks for the tips!
  • Hi am wondering if anyone knows if there is a list of public relations companies and who they might work for. I am looking to reach out to pr companies that would typically host writers for press trips (I have outlets and can get assignment letters so that is no problem.) Thanks so much for any information at all.
