  2. Elderly Woman Traveling to Florida Mistakenly Sent to Puerto Rico Wednesday, November 19, 2008 E-Mail Print Share: TAMPA, Fla. — An 83-year-old Florida woman flying back to Tampa after a trip to New York somehow wound up in Puerto Rico instead. Elfriede Kuemmel had gone to Newburgh, N.Y., to interview for a spot in an assisted living home on Monday, MyFOXTampaBay.com reported. Kuemmel's family said that an attendant on a connecting flight in Philadelphia accidentally put Kuemmel on a flight to San Juan. The woman's daughter, Vera Kuemmel, spent Monday night at the baggage claim in Tampa trying to find her mother. Later, a man called her to say her mother was at the baggage claim looking for her. "He was like, 'I'm in a white shirt. Do you see me?' I said no," Vera Kuemmel told MyFOXTampaBay.com. She soon realized that her mother had flown to Puerto Rico instead of Tampa. Elfriede Kuemmel spent the night in Puerto Rico and arrived at the Tampa airport Tuesday. A U.S. Airways representative said the airline paid for her food and hotel and flew her back to Florida first-class. Click here for more on this story from MyFOXTampaBay.com.

  3. Heres the Link http://www.budapesttimes.hu/content/view/9989/219/ Slow internet can't post details Malév pilots organise demo, airline in doubt Monday, 17 November 2008 As a part of the “OneWorld Cockpit Crew Coalition Conference”, an international demonstration was held by the National Association of Pilots (Hunalpa) at the headquarters of Malév last Friday. Vice president of the association Kálmán Kiss told the daily Magyar Hírlap that, in general, pilots were worried about the Hungarian national airline and their jobs, and believed that management of Malév still has no plan on how to handle the crisis. The protest, however, was directly triggered by the airline’s continued firing of its employees, despite the fact that Hunalpa (of which 95% of members are Malév pilots) objected to the layoffs in court, which by law has a delay effect of 15 days. The Allied Pilots Association, which is a union of 12,000 American Airlines (AA) pilots, announced its support of Hunalpa’s action on Thursday. Meanwhile the daily Magyar Nemzet reported last Friday that the Hungarian airline was on the brink of bankruptcy as it relies heavily on the benevolence of its creditors and suppliers. The biggest debt Malév has is on the managing company of Ferihegy Budapest Airport (BA). According to sources of the daily, it is not in the interests of BA to declare the airline bankrupt, with Malév having outstanding obligations of HUF 5-10 billion (EUR 18.45-36.87 million).

  10. I can't get what it says because of slow internet connection Here's the link http://www.travelbizmonitor.com/kingfisher...stake-sale-4028 anyway if anybody puts it another post it will be appriciated It just loaded Kingfisher plans 25 per cent stake sale By TBM Staff | Mumbai Vijay Mallya's Kingfisher Airlines is holding exploratory talks with international carriers for diluting up to 25 per cent stake. The move comes as the Centre is reportedly planning a policy change to allow foreign airlines to invest in domestic carriers with a cap of just below 26 per cent, sources told the Economic Times (ET). According to the ET, Kingfisher is believed to be discussing stake sale with three foreign airlines — British Airways, Singapore Airlines and Virgin Atlantic— as a strategic investment is expected to fetch better valuation compared to the numbers indicated by private equity investors. Vijay Mallya, Chairman, Kingfisher Airlines said, “I have received several Expressions of Interest (EoI) from foreign airlines as the Kingfisher network is unparalleled. However, I cannot share details.” British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Singapore Airlines could not be contacted on the weekend; however interest from some of these airlines is not yet a formal one.
