  1. I can’t understand it when a hotel chain plans to “target” a group with a new brand. How many normal human beings understand the difference in a hotel chains 19 brands? Answer: zero. Heck, I suspect most TRAVELLERS don’t even understand the difference between a Holiday Inn and a Holiday Inn Express. Why not just build Hampton Inns and charge guests 10 bucks more?

  2. With British Airways and Virgin Atlantic the seat seems secondary to their rivalry to have the most frequent and most loud in-flight announcements of any airlines, from the routine to those triggered by even the smallest tremor of turbulence.
