Pop-Up Hotel in Sydney Gives New Meaning to ‘Glamping’
Camping under the stars with only the lights of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge to light your way sounds pretty amazing.
Wait..what!? Yes, the area of Sydney, known as Circular Quay, has been turned into a pop-up hotel that mimics ‘glamping’ in the middle of the city.
Sponsored by Hotels.com and Citygate Central Hotel, the pop-up ‘hotel room’ is the first of it’s kind in Australia, and if it us up to the creators, it wont be the last.
Originally inspired by the pop-up restaurant hosted by the hit cooking show, Masterchef, the hotel room offered 2 lucky guests a two-night stay in the what is arguably, the most expensive hotel district in town.
Airlines face legal challenge over baggage fees
The Malaga public prosecution office is preparing a case against a number of airlines that operate to and from the city, including easyJet, Jet2, Flybe and Ryanair.
A report in the English language newspaper Sur claims that the office is compiling a list of those airlines which impose a fee to check in luggage, as well as those who charge passengers to issue a boarding card. It is thought that between 15 and 20 airlines would be affected.
Its case makes reference to the Air Navigation Law of 1960, which states that airlines are obliged to carry a passenger’s luggage, together with the passenger, as part of the price of the flight ticket.
