Eye on Travel

Eye on Travel — Fort Lauderdale — March 30, 2024

This week’s broadcast of Eye on Travel is from the Four Seasons Hotel in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. It’s been a tough and tragic week for travel — a major executive shakeup at Boeing, increased FAA scrutiny over United Airlines, and the tragic ship collision in Baltimore at the Key Bridge. I will have all the details and updates on the investigation — and of course, what it means to you and your travels. Then, it’s a deep dive into Fort Lauderdale. Mayor Dean Trantalis highlights the history of Fort Lauderdale, why its population has grown, its challenges and…its innovations. We’ll discuss a museum most of you have never visited (but should). Four Seasons Chef Brandon Salomon on how Eastern Mediterranean cuisine has defined his menu. Veteran correspondent and Fort Lauderdale resident Kerry Sanders on how trains are changing the way people travel within Florida. And one of our regulars, Patrick Smith, Pilot and Founder of AskThePilot.com, explains the reality of the perceived risks of flying and how recent events shape the perception of those risks. There’s all this and more on this week’s Eye on Travel.
