The Top Reader Advice for Surviving Extra-Long Flights - WSJ
By Adam Thompson
Aug. 21, 2018
I would also add that taking Melatonin - particularly when flying eastwards - can be very helpful in reseting your internal clock.
Always do serious exercise before a long flight, for me, 1.5 mile swim. Could be a big run for you, or walk, whatever is your thing. To get tired. to help sleep on plane. all other points good, limit alcohol, take a melatonin for sleep; time your meals to new time zone; you should skip a meal, better to arrive hungry. Get in sun as long as possible in new locale, and serious exercise again. and just know you're gonna be physically bad until you can recover. And last, business class or better if possible.

JetBlue Tech Execs Tap Startups To Help Airline Innovate - CIO Journal. - WSJ
As digital technology transforms business, enterprises can be at a disadvantage relative to newcomers. One solution is to work with startups, but that can be tricky because of security, regulatory and policy requirements at large companies. CIO Journal spoke to the top technology executives at JetBlue Airways about how they make the relationship work through a corporate venture arm, JetBlue Technology Ventures.

The Silicon Valley-based venture group looks for technology that could add business value within 18 months, as well as that which may have longer, 5- to 10-year payoffs. It has made early and mid-stage investments in 18 startups since 2016.

“Being part of the Silicon Valley innovation ecosystem is very important for us,” Eash Sundaram, JetBlue’s chief digital and technology officer, tells CIO Journal.
Ms. Simi said JetBlue may have never come across the startups in the venture arm’s portfolio if they had simply made a request for proposals for a specific technology project. Instead, the dedicated venture team vets startups, makes strategic investments and works alongside them to match technologies to JetBlue’s current and future needs.

“It’s been hugely helpful at JetBlue in terms of keeping our thinking fresh and innovative,”

In an Age of Privilege, Not Everyone Is in the Same Boat - The New York Times

When top-dollar travelers switch planes in Atlanta, New York and other cities, Delta ferries them between terminals in a Porsche, what the airline calls a “surprise-and-delight service.” Last month, Walt Disney World began offering after-hours access to visitors who want to avoid the crowds. In other words, you basically get the Magic Kingdom to yourself.

When Royal Caribbean ships call at Labadee, the cruise line’s private resort in Haiti, elite guests get their own special beach club away from fellow travelers — an enclave within an enclave....From cruise ship operators and casinos to amusement parks and airlines, the rise of the 1 percent spells opportunity and profit.

Eluding Germs on Planes -
OCTOBER 22, 2003 | WSJ | Jennifer Saranow.

When Ronald Primas arrives at the airport for a flight, he picks up his boarding pass and heads through security. He then pops a decongestant and gives himself a spritz of nasal spray. Dr. Primas, a travel-medicine specialist in New York, says his germ-fighting routine helps him avoid catching colds and sinus infections on planes.

Once buckled into his seat, he rubs his hands with an alcohol-based sanitizer such as Purell -- and avoids touching his head and neck area until his hands are de-germed.

Dr. Primas is more worried about germs being passed by another person -- someone coughing on him, for example -- than from inanimate objects such as blankets or pillows, which he uses freely. (Those items, he says, have usually been recently washed.) But just to be safe, when he goes to the bathroom, he uses a tissue to open the door, flush and turn on the faucet.

Lagging Private-Jet Industry Resumes Takeoff -

Columnist's name

Lagging Private-Jet Industry Resumes Takeoff

The fanciest, easiest, most-expensive mode of air travel is bouncing back after the private-jet bubble burst in 2008, jet prices plunged 30% to 50% and actual flying time dropped by 40% in some measures. Flights by business aircraft were up 6.3% in November and 4.4% in December, compared to year-earlier sales those months, according to Argus International Inc., which provides services to private-jet operators. Fractional ownership companies that cater to celebrities and wealthy travelers say sales are inching up. Prices for private jets are climbing, too, although shipments of new planes are still down......About 15% of the overall market comes from fractional ownership programs, the NBAA says. In these, wealthy individuals and some companies buy a share of a plane, pay monthly maintenance and management fees and then pay hourly operating costs, including fuel.

Airlines Work to Catch Up to the Digital Age -
June 4, 2010 | New York Times | By JAD MOUAWAD. Airlines,
including American Airlines and Continental Airlines, have started
updating their systems. At its major hubs, including Dallas-Fort Worth,
American recently started using a technology called Yada — for “your
assistance delivered anywhere” — that allows its agents to promptly
rebook passengers on a different flight, advise on a gate change or
track down a lost bag. Travelers do not have to wait in line anymore.

Travelers Flock to India's Jewels
Oct 2007 | Far Eastern Economic Review Vol. 170, Iss. 8; pg.
57, 4 pgs | Neelima Mahajan. "...What has led to this sudden upsurge in
inbound tourism? Peter Kerkar, global chief executive officer with tour
operator Cox & Kings said: "While initially attributed to
fulfillment of pent-up demand post-9/11, this increase in numbers now
stands as the effects of India being seen as an emerging destination."
India's economic growth, a stable political climate and increased
destination knowledge has fueled this growth, he said. Many of these new
travelers to India are second- or third-time visitors who have
previously visited India on business trips..."

Yes. Taste is very linked to memories. Luxury today is not about
something expensive. Luxury is not this anymore, except maybe in Russia
or in China they are still on this. Luxury is an experience that will
enrich you. After having had this, you as a person are richer
spiritually and intellectually. So food helps you in being more rich in
the experience you have.
