Airbus’ Transformative New Aircraft, Thailand’s Bold Tourist Offer, Indulgent Flights to Nowhere, Cruise Industry Relaunch Plans & Traveler Lifecycle: Reflection (#51)
In this Weekly Roundup of travel news, #nerdbirds Jeremy & Kai share details of Airbus’ new zero-emission aircraft plans with their newly-announced ZEROe hydrogen-powered aircraft line, Thailand’s play to welcome visitors to Thailand for up to 9 months (including a required 14-day quarantine), Qantas’ seven-hour flight to nowhere that sold out in 10 minutes, and the cruise ship industry’s revealing of plans to combat COVID-19 and pave the way for restarting the beleaguered industry.
In the second part of the episode, Jeremy & Kai close out the Traveler Lifecycle series by discussing the oft-overlooked Reflection stage, when a trip is all said and done, yet the trip is still having an impact on our lives.
