Eye on Travel

Eye on Travel — Liechtenstein — October 1, 2022

This week’s broadcast of Eye on Travel is from the European microstate and principality of…. Liechtenstein. Peter will have all the latest updates from Hurricane Ian, and the substantial impact it has had on travel, not just to and from Florida, but across the United States. And what travelers can do to help the devastated areas. Also updates on unruly airline passengers, airfares and cruise line news. Then, we’ll report from Liechtenstein. Manfred Bischof, Mayor of Vaduz, Liechtenstein, on the history of the country, the monarchy, and the people. Rainer Vollkommer, Director of the National Museum of Liechtenstein, on the country’s love affair with postage stamps — it’s not just art, but revenue. Then, Julia Simpson, President and CEO of the World Travel and Tourism Council, talks immigration policies, global wealth growth and the prediction that China will take over as the largest travel and tourism economy in the world. Gary Leff, Founder of ViewFromtheWing.com, explains the real challenge of lounge access in airports, the demand for comfort under the guise of an exclusive experience and lately — the lack of it. There’s all this and more as this week’s Eye on Travel broadcasts from Vaduz in Liechtenstein.
