Spring travel is in the air – Mar 2016 – the tripchi airport app newsletter
Are you ready for Spring? Even though T.S. Eliot says that April is the cruelest month, it doesn’t have to be. With oil prices still low and plenty of cheap fares still out there, you can make the most of the fact that spring travel is in the air – whether it’s a getaway to escape that random April snowfall, or an excuse to use up some of your roll-over vacation days. Consider Europe and consider Belgium – seriously, deals are to be had and authorities are beefing up security due to the tragic recent events.
Today Melinda shares with us her recent experience at Orlando Airport. A few months back, Melinda wrapped up a blog series on the Calgary International Airport (YYC), United YYC-IAH flight and the Houston Airport, as well as her blog on the United E145 IAH-LFT Express flight. Melinda is a self-described epitome of the reality side of ‘expectation vs reality’ in business travel. You’ll find her taking steerage class cabins to exotic locales like Elliot Lake, ON and Elko, NV, chasing her company’s aerial survey aircraft! You can check out more about Melinda on LinkedIn or follow her on Twitter . In this blog, Melinda and some colleagues made it through Orlando Airport, so she wrote up a review of her experience.
Channel Your Inner Chef – O’Hare Cooking Competition
HMS Host has named the finalists for its annual O’Hare Cooking Competition – taking place at Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD) on Mar 22. There was a worldwide competition of recipe and cooking demonstration (via recorded video) submissions a few weeks ago, and now the Final Five have been named.
A few weeks ago, we started a list of the top 10 best airports for a long layover. We counted down from #10. To remind you, there were:
- #10 Vancouver (YVR)
- #9 Hong Kong (HKG)
- #8 Dubai (DXB)
- #7 Munich (MUC)
- #6 San Francisco (SFO)
Which brings us to today’s blog, starting with Schiphol, as number five on the list of best airports for a long layover.
