Departed 09.15, arrives 20.15 local time BACKGROUND Etihad unveiled its all-new cabin products for its A380 and B787 aircraft in May 2014.  These include the Residence and First Apartments on the A380s and First Suites on the B787s, Business Studios and Economy Smart Seats.

Book review: 2020 Vision

03/16/2015

Tried & Tested »  Published: 14/03/2015 - Filed under: Tried & Tested » 2020 Vision - Today's Business Leaders on Tomorrow's World Tim Burt, a former Financial Times journalist and managing partner at Stockwell Communications, follows up his PR book Dark Art: The Changing Face of Public Relations with a more ambitious project — interviewing 20 leading chairmen and senior executives of major companies. The focus of each interview is what their markets, companies and strategy will look like in 2020, and it makes for some interesting reading. The list of participants is impressive: everyone from Sir Martin Sorrell (WPP) through to Kasper Rorsted (Henkel), although I suspect most people will concentrate their attention on the sectors they are most interested in, or deal with on a day-top-day basis.

03/14/2015

News »  Published: 13/03/2015 - Filed under: News » KLM intends to hike its checked baggage fees by 25 per cent, according to reports. The Dutch carrier was the first conventional airline to introduce the charge for short-haul passengers two years ago (see news, February 2013). Full details of the rise are still awaited, but understanding KLM's current baggage fees is not for the faint-hearted. Visit the airline's website and you'll see what I mean. It is believed the new fees, which will apply to passengers flying within Europe who purchase tickets on or after April 1, will see the lowest charge rising from €15 to €20 per piece.
