U.S.-based travelers are increasingly canceling trips to Mexico, reports Travel Weekly. According to a recent survey of 166 travel agents conducted by the MAST Travel Network, eight percent said they have clients who have canceled or re-booked trips to other destinations.
MAST also said 52 percent of the agents reported they have clients who specifically indicated that they did not want to travel to Mexico, while 49 percent said their clients do not want to travel internationally.
It turns out fliers like free meals, after all. Even in coach. That’s the conclusion at Delta Air Lines, which will add free meal service for all passengers on “select coast-to-coast” routes following a test of the idea last year.

On those routes, Delta will offer fliers a breakfast option in the morning and sandwich or wrap options for flights later in the day. Passengers on red-eye flights will be included, too; they’ll receive a breakfast bar during their flights’ pre-arrival beverage service.

The new 777-300ER is United’s first to include its new “Polaris” business-class seats, a revamp of premium seating that the carrier hopes will help it win back high-yield customers that it’s lost this decade to rivals like Delta and American.Add to Flipboard Magazine.
