No Hidden Fees, Airline Merger, Tipping?

In this episode, we delve into various pertinent topics relating to the travel industry. We kick off with the bipartisan No Hidden Fees Act of 2023, which aims to ensure transparency in travel industry pricing. We also discuss a report by the World Travel & Tourism Council, which shows a significant decrease in the sector’s water usage. The proposed Alaska-Hawaiian Airlines merger is scrutinized, exploring both pros and cons. We also cover new initiatives by the National Park Service to provide free park entry on specific days in 2024. With tipping on the rise, we question if this trend is becoming burdensome and its possible implications. We wrap up with a recap segment reflecting on personal experiences and a pertinent hospitality quote by Winston Churchill.
