Eye on Travel—Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove in Miami, Florida— May 4, 2019

Locations in this article:  Miami, FL

This week’s broadcast of Eye on Travel comes from the Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove in Miami, Florida. We’ll have an update on the post-crash investigations of the Boeing 737 Max jets, and what the grounding of the fleet means to your summer vacation plans. Joining Peter is Wall Street Journal Travel Editor Scott McCartney, with a new analysis on shrinking seat sizes and how much more money airlines make on business class. The price comparisons are staggering (when you measure things by the square inch). And, when an airline fails, and you bought your tickets on a credit card, what are your real rights to getting your money back? Some real surprises here — from financial consultant David Chester. It’s news you need to know. Then, attorney Brian Becker has an update on immigration, asylum and tourist visas to the United States. And Mark Hatfield, the Chief Security Officer at Miami International Airport, discusses the brave new world of implementing biometrics at MIA and what it means to security as well as how long it will take you to clear it. There’s all this and more as Eye on Travel broadcasts from the Ritz Carlton Coconut Grove in Miami, Florida.
