News and notes from around the interweb:
- London Heathrow American Express Centurion Lounge is now open
- When was the best era to visit various countries and regions of the world? Eastern Europe in the 90s, New York City in the 70s, much of the Mideast (not Beirut) right now.
- There’s now an agreement for New Alitalia to actually use the Alitalia brand rather than ‘ITA’
- Air Serbia looking to expand its U.S. flying beyond just New York JFK – Belgrade
- Overreact much? The passenger had a camera, not a bomb.
- Olympic gymnastics gold medalist Shawn Johnson groped and yelled at by TSA while traveling with breast milk.
NYC in the 70s? I don’t think so.
Air Serbia’s predecessor JAT used to fly to Detroit, Chicago, and I believe Cleveland. The market exists, particularly in the summertime when diaspora members tend to visit family overseas. Frankly, from Air Serbia’s perspective, it would make much more sense to fly to Chicago or Detroit than it does to JFK. What’s more, the traffic wouldn’t necessarily be one-way to Belgrade, and could realistically include a lot of onward traffic to other parts of the Balkans best served via one-stop flights through Belgrade. A Chicago flight could potentially serve as a catalyst for partnering with OneWorld carriers – who have a gaping hole in their network in continental Europe.
Used to be JAT airlines which we renamed joke about time
Also Tesla pictured was born in Croatia not Serbia so that might need some adjustment
He was born in 1856 in Austro-Hungary
In a town that today is part of Croatia
To Serbian parents.
Borders have changed, his heritage has not.
Some people simply can not digest the fact tha he was born in Austro-Hungary, to Serbian parents. His father was serbian orthodox priest.
