Airplane As The New Social Networking Space

Airplane As The New Social Networking Space | Traveller | Scoop.it

While airplane travel isn’t as glamorous as it once was in the ‘60s and ‘70s, new initiatives are turning this form of transportation into a hot social scene. From Virgin America’s new LinkedIn-based in-flight social network to a hook up app that connects passengers with other attractive people in the air, the plane’s cabin lets people travel without worrying about missing out on a social life.

Check out some of these initiatives

People are looking for something to do as a couple, family, or group. Something affordable or free, outside and away from technology for at least a little while, so that is the place of combination!

Vacation Deprivation

Vacation Deprivation | Traveller | Scoop.it
Americans given 14 days off and take 10, leave twice as many days unused as last year; French take all 30 available days while also feeling most vacation-deprived.

Susan Taylor's curator insight, November 20, 2013 4:53 PM

Vacation deprivation?  Until today, I had never heard of such a thing. 

Yet a recent study by Expedia reveals stark global disparity in work-life balance.

 

Here are some of the findings:

 

  • Americans treat vacations as a luxury rather than a right. Over the past year, Americans were afforded 14 days of vacation and took 10, leaving 4 days on the table, twice as many as the year prior.
  • The French lead the world in vacationing, taking all 30 possible days available to them. At the same time, a full 90% of employed French adults either strongly or somewhat agree with the sentence, "I feel vacation deprived," well above the global average.
  • Norwegians, by a wide margin, feel no such thing: only 17% of Norwegians describe feeling vacation-deprived.
  • The Japanese are given a relatively robust 18 vacation days (the global average is 20); they only take 7. At 7 days taken, Japan joins South Korea as the most vacation-deprived nations in the study.

 

What are your vacation habits?  Do you feel vacation-deprived?
