Third-class rail travel is returning to Europe – with an even lower grade that puts the ‘stand’ in standby

A new no-frills train between Paris and Brussels is to launch on Sunday. Branded “Izy”, it is an offshoot of Thalys – the high-speed operator that connects the French and Belgian capitals and extends into Holland and Germany.

Skift CMO Interviews: Booking.com CMO on the Right Mix Online and Offline, Global and Local

What’s relatively new to our journey is a more upper-funnel or mid-funnel communication. We started with offline advertising in the U.S. in 2013.

Particularly that booking.com becomes a very well-known and loved brand in travel. This is, today, for us still a big opportunity.Pepijn Rijvers (Booking.com)

Boom wants to build supersonic planes that fly from New York City to London in three hours

Boom’s designs mean the plane would fly at Mach 2.2, or 1,451 m.p.h., more than 2.6 times faster than other airlines today. Whereas the Concorde plane fit 100 people, Boom’s smaller plane would only fit 40 to keep the price down and demand up.Biz Carson (Business Insider)

Airbus unveils cabin interior for new A330neo planes

We are putting more passengers on the same amount of space but because of the cleverness and the way we have designed it we don’t have to compromise on comfort.Kiran Rao (Airbus)
