FIVE REASONS INDONESIAN PEOPLE LIKE TO TRAVEL BY TRAIN

Traveling to various cities certainly requires a mode of transportation. The train is one of the choices of transportation modes that are commonly used to move from one tourist destination to another.

Welcoming National Railway Day which is celebrated every September 28, let’s take a look at some of the reasons why trains are still the prima donna in Indonesia.

1. Cheaper rates

Meanwhile, the train offers the cheapest fares starting from IDR 480,000 for Executive class trains.

Airlines Cull More Hawaii Routes

We just noticed more routes just disappeared from one airline’s schedule. That makes at least three Hawaii-centric airlines that have culled routes to the islands. And we predict it isn’t even close to done there.

Why Southwest just pulled two more routes.

After we just wrote about 7 Southwest Hawaii flights that were removed from their upcoming schedule four days ago, we found yet more. Los Angeles to Lihue and Los Angeles to Kona are no longer. It isn’t totally surprising as those routes are frankly intensely competitive. The airlines on these routes, other than Southwest, include American, Delta, Hawaiian, and United.

Also, starting mid-March, Alaska Airlines will join in the brawl and begin daily nonstop flights on these important routes. In a nutshell, too many flights and competition just no longer made sense for Southwest, which is otherwise already occupied.

Today Hawaiian addressed removing the Orlando route. We think

What to know if an airline wants to bump you from a flight

It’s a story that has become more common at airports: After you show up, get through security and walk to your assigned gate, you hear an announcement that the airline is looking for volunteers to give up their seats. If you’re unlucky, you find out you’re getting “bumped” from the flight because the airline overbooked.

Airlines beset by labor shortages have struggled to keep up with summer travel demand, leading to an unusually high number of cancellations, delays and disappearing luggage. More people are also getting bumped: According to a consumer report from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, the rate of passengers who were involuntarily denied boarding in the first quarter of 2022 was 0.44 per 10,000 passengers, which is more than five times greater than the 2021 figure (0.08) and bigger than the pre-pandemic rate of 0.32 in the same period of 2019.

Flexible travelers can use these situations

29 things not to do as a tourist in Italy in 2022

Italian authorities have introduced a slew of new rules in recent years in response to issues associated with over-tourism.

From sitting on the Spanish Steps in Rome to visiting Venice for a day without pre-booking and paying an entry fee, there are specific everyday activities that could see you hit with a fine of up to €1000 ($1022) or a Daspo (temporary ban from the area). 

Some have been presented with a zero-tolerance approach. Such as an incident pre-pandemic when two German tourists were fined €950 ($1058) and immediately asked to leave the city after they were found making coffee on a portable stove beneath Rialto Bridge. Officials confirmed that this was the 40th time in two months that visitors were ordered to leave town for breaching the rules.
