There’s that famed American can do spirit! "We've tried nothing and we're all out of ideas!" apparently the great American exceptionalism also applies to solving problems that most of the world already figured out.

We as a society need to ACCEPT that COVID-19 is here to stay. his virus is obviously not going anyway, the cat has long left the bag. So what we as a society must do is to learn to LIVE with it. We need to go back to the OLD normal; we need to OPEN TF UP and UNCANCEL everything! Let’s end this socia...Jump to post

Another unnecessary cancellation over a little flu. smhJump to post
I believe it was a mistake for states that did not see a spike yet to lockdown too early. All it did was delay the inevitable while depleting the population's cooperation capital, which you then are short of when the real wave arrives. Lockdowns only flatten the curve, they do not stop the spread. ...Jump to post

I see this route coming back once hotels, etc. open for in-state tourism. In the meantime there's Amtrak.

What routes are most likely to be abandoned? Are they talking about giving up wide-body, narrow-body, or both? Given how disproportionally big TAP is for a country like Portugal, I think it is easy to achieve that: 1) The OPO hub. TAP was building OPO as a second hub with some connectivity and +15 ...Jump to post
So sad, I visited the Globe ten years ago during my study abroad.

Makes sense. As tourists from the UK, Germany and the rest of Europe are discouraged from heading to Spain this summer, Volotea is taking advantage of the similarly captive Spanish domestic market.Jump to post

In response to a question about the country's tourism sector, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said: "We will not have open borders for the rest of the world for a long time to come."

This 100% makes sense. France has its fine TGV system which has been continuously improving; the only gaps where flying makes sense are to NCE, TLS and any east-west route across France.Jump to post

I personally think the borders will remain closed as they are now for a minimum of another 12-18 months. Its not just Europe closed to USA visitors, its a two way street. In 18 months they will partially reopen, but significant restrictions will remain in place. If you are looking for life the way ...Jump to post
