I’m quoted on the state of business travel in light of the current unpleasantness in an article from today’s Financial Times.
My basic take is that, for me, it’s safer to be flying than living a mile
from the Pentagon…
Business travelers will still make trips if there are opportunities, but the
War (and concommitant uncertainty)’s effect on the economy might make those
opportunities somewhat more scarce.
If I did have to fly to London, I’d avoid US or UK flag carriers though. I
told the reporter that I’d fly JFK to Heathrow on Singapore Air (and
explained that Singapore, Kuwaiti, and Air India all fly the route). They
somehow mixed up the quote, saying I’d choose Air India.
