Sabre Will See Revenue Fallout From Jet Airways Collapse and 737 Max Grounding

Sabre Will See Revenue Fallout From Jet Airways Collapse and 737 Max Grounding Sabre expects to take a financial hit because the FAA has grounded all Boeing 737 Max jets in the United States, and carriers around the world have done likewise. Pictured is a United Airlines Boeing 737 Max 9. United Airlines

Skift Take: Sabre is engaged in a tough but necessary technology transition. Beyond the system outages it has experienced recently, some of the events impacting its financial results, namely the Jet Airways financial collapse and the Boeing 737 Max groundings, are beyond the company's control. — Dennis Schaal Read the Complete Story On Skift http://travel.atspace.co.uk/sabre-will-see-revenue-fallout-from-jet-airways-collapse-and-737-max-grounding/

Gilded Age mansions in Florida

Image
Gilded Age mansions in Florida Florida generally gives about as much regard to its history as its people do to common sense. That said, though the state has bulldozed much of its past for condos, some of the grandest structures ever built in America still remain there. Even before the advent of air conditioning, Florida was a popular winter retreat for wealthy northerners, particularly during the period between the Civil War and the Great Depression, much of which is known as the “Gilded Age.”
During this time, grand palaces throughout the Sunshine State popped up, from luxury hotels along the beaches to mansions on sprawling orange groves. A handful are still in operation, like the Biltmore, Breakers, and Boca Raton Resort hotels. But most are now museums or parks that give you a glimpse into the early days of Florida luxury.

Traditional Betawi Indonesian food

Traditional Betawi Indonesian food Jakarta is the capital of Indonesia and a place where you can find a variety of people from across Indonesia and abroad. The country’s motto, after all, is Bhinneka Tunggal Ika, or “Unity in Diversity.” People from all over have brought their culinary traditions and made the city an exciting place to eat. Perhaps because of this diversity, Jakarta’s own ethnic group, the Betawi, can get overlooked. But the people, and their food, have influences well worth noting.
The origin of the Betawi goes back to Dutch colonialism in the 17th century. Betawi are a mix of Sundanese, Javanese, Portuguese, Dutch, Arabs, Chinese, and other immigrants who came to Jakarta at the time, making them the latest formed ethnic group in Indonesia. Thus, their influences are significant, and these diverse ethnic groups that the Betawi are made up of influence many aspects of Betawi traditions and traditional food.

Skift Take: InterContinental Hotels Group aims to use its new reservations system from Amadeus to set and shift rates based on customer preferences and spending habits. But the move will eventually force the company to throw away its rulebook on how to maximize revenue. — Sean O'Neill Read the Complete Story On Skift http://travel.atspace.co.uk/ihg-sees-room-for-improvement-in-hotel-revenue-management/
