    jet blue Airlines Competition Why Airlines Need Competition .
    by: James Post
    The airline holds a virtual monopoly for intra-Caribbean flights, and it shows. Once they canceled a flight because of "technical reasons". Most people realised that the real reason was economy as the flight was poorly booked. No apology, let alone compensation. Another time I almost missed a flight because it left half an hour early. Since I only had hand luggage it was so convenient to kick me out.

Our bodies are creatures of habit and once we have adjusted to a specific time zone, they don't like things to change. When we do disrupt our circadian rhythms or biological clock to the layperson, we experience jetlag. Depending on how far we have traveled, in which direction and what shape our body is in ....

    by: Luis JJ Teixeira
    You need to understand that there is no such thing as discounted airfare and/or getting the cheapest airfare available. This is simply because there is no base price to work off. For example, a flight from New York to London should cost $600, but airline companies are offering it at $400. People really need to understand the reason for this is that there is no such thing as a fixed ticket price.

    Many people are concerned about flying and are often referred to as "white-knuckle-flyers." I retired after thirty six years as a pilot for a major airline. Every pilot during his or her career has experienced situations where they've thought it would be nice to be on the ground instead of in the air. However, such experiences are not reasons that would make us afraid to fly ...

A Romantic's Guide to Central Europe

A romantic's guide to Central Europe
For a honeymoon destination with a difference, consider Central Europe. Adam McCulloch discovers some of its most romantic spots. Central Europe used to be like two single hotel beds separated by a chest of drawers: the west on one side, the east on the other and an iron curtain to keep them apart. Thankfully, the curtain is down and romance is well and truly in the air. With some of the most dramatic scenery on the continent, and far fewer tourists than France and Italy, Central Europe is in the midst of a renaissance.
Go while the secret is still safe.

1. Romance on the German roads
Hire a car in Frankfurt and, after a quick blast down the Autobahn, take a meandering 300km drive from Wurzburg to Fussen at the base of the Bavarian Alps. You're driving on the aptly named Romantische Strasse (Romantic Road) and it's one of the most breathtaking drives in the world. Almost every town is like a fairytale - the walled city of Rothenburg has cobblestone streets, half-timbered homes and ancient buildings, and Nordlingen lies in the centre of a 10-million-year-old meteor crater and is the town shown in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

2. A view of Prague
Everything about Prague is romantic: Prague castle, the dual spires of the Church of our Lady before Tyn - even just saying the name Prague feels exotic. The best way to appreciate Central Europe's most charming city is to walk the Charles Bridge at sunset. It's the perfect vantage point to view the castle and the other hundred golden spires Prague is known for. Walk up to the castle from the bridge after dusk, when all the tourists have gone.

3. Beachcombing in Poland
Often referred to as the Monte Carlo of the north, the Polish town of Sopot experienced a hedonistic heyday in the 1920s, after which it went into mothballs for about 50 years. The golden sand beaches stretch on and on, and the seas are unerringly calm. But there's a better reason for a stroll on the sand. The region is also known as The Amber Coast after the semi-precious gem, which is found here in abundance. It floats on the incoming tide, so a gentle walk can yield a handful of gems.

4. Ruins and sun in Croatia
It might be hard to tear yourself away from Croatia's medieval capital, Dubrovnik with its ancient fortresses, Roman ruins and the cafe-lined Stradun, but you'll be rewarded if you do. Catch a ferry or charter a boat to the many islands that dot the nearby Dalmatian Coast. One of the most romantic is Lopud Island, which has no traffic and lush green gardens fed by natural spring water. Hvar is an island community with cool bars, beaches, castles and fields of lavender. Take a day trip from here to the Pakleni Islands, seriously lacking people and swimsuits. In Croatia, skinny-dipping is a way of life.

5. Flourish in Austria
This might be the land of Mozart and The Sound of Music but the hills are also alive with the sound of wedding bells. In spring and summer the Austrian Alps are verdant green. Hire a tandem bike to ride around the lakes in the Salzkammergut district, or row to a secluded beach or lakeside village. Splurge on a night or two in 1450s hunting lodge, Hotel Schloss Fuschl. Stay among $70 million worth of paintings then choose a classic Bugatti or Rolls Royce from the garage to drive around the lakes. Relax in Hungary Budapest, Hungary's capital, is made up of two ancient cities divided by the Danube River: Buda is said to be the female side and Pest the male. It's also home to the most magnificent spas in the world with high vaulted ceilings, stained glass and castle turrets dating back to the Ottoman Empire.

One of the most historic, the Gell rt Bath, shimmers with crystal chandeliers and is also a hotel. In summer you can enjoy a game of chess in the ever-popular Sz chenyi Bath in the centre of town.

6. Wishing in Slovenia
The ominous sounding Lake Bled, located high in the Julian Alps, is home to one of the most beautiful churches on Earth. The Assumption of Mary's Pilgrimage Church is perched on a tiny island in the centre of the lake, and is served by small gondola-style rowing boats known as 'pletna'. The tradition is to take a pletna to the church to ring the wishing bell.

7. Do it all
If you can't decide which romantic destination to visit, there's always the five-day Orient Express train adventure through Central Europe, starting in Venice.

8. Getting there
Qantas operates daily return services from Australia to Frankfurt, Germany and more than 20 services a week to Heathrow, London. Sydney to Frankfurt: from AU$2500 Melbourne to Frankfurt: from AU$2680 Sydney to Heathrow: from AU$2750 Melbourne to Heathrow: from AU$2750 Accommodation suggestions
Germany: Hotel Kl sterle (in an old monastery) Prague: Residence Nosticova (an antique filled hideaway) Poland: Hotel Neptun Croatia: Villa Dubrovnik (spectacular views) OR Meneghello Place (secluded getaway) Austria: Hotel Schloss Fuschl Hungary: Danubis Hotel (enjoy free access to the Gell rt Baths) Slovenia: Hotel Vila Bled (on the banks of Lake Bled)***
