Peter’s favorite travel experiences aren’t all destinations. Sometimes, it’s all about the process of travel. This week, Peter is setting off on British Airways Flight 1 from the London City Airport to New York’s John F. Kennedy.
Beyond avoiding the crowds at Heathrow, the benefit of this flight is that it makes a stop in Shannon, Ireland, where there is a U.S. customs facility at the airport. Translation? You can clear customs before arriving back in the U.S.
Joining Peter on the the flight are Travel Weekly’s Arnie Weissmann and Airfare Watchdog’s George Hobica who look at the latest U.S. travel trends. Plus, Vanity Fair‘s Victoria Mather, Visit Britain’s Paul Gauger and British Airway’s Simon Talling-Smith share the latest in travel across the pond, including the final impact of the 2012 Olympic Games.
