Jenbel and chrissxb have set up a fantastic consolidated do thread.

New news – they’re addicted to cheap flights.

A report on a trip – two reports on places less visited this week. Greenland and Bhutan.

Something from the talking heads, err Talk Board – Talk Board voted to merge Varig back into Other North & South America FFPs. There are discussions on a proposed new travel products forum, and a suggested new travel enthusiasts forum.

Something random – the latest revenue-generation idea from Ryanair is to charge for at airport check in. If you have any checked bags, or are not an EU citizen, this charge is compulsory (online check in is not valid).
