This week’s broadcast of Eye on Travel is from Istanbul, Turkey. Peter has all the latest updates, including how you can help the people of Southwest Florida as they attempt to recover and rebuild. He’ll also report on the new and long-awaited FAA rules on flight attendants and crew rest. Arnie Weissmann, Editor-in-Chief of Travel Weekly, describes how airline ancillary fees are skyrocketing right now and that low-cost carriers make more money from these fees than from ticket revenue.

Archaeologist Mustafa Kocak talks about the new discovery of the Congress in Patara, Turkey, and what they are now learning about that ancient civilization and their dependence on the harbor. And Amir Eylon, President and CEO of Longwoods International, on their latest research findings on American travelers — and why the nomadic lifestyle that emerged during COVID is here to stay.
