Mamma Mia Film Locations in Skopelos, Greece

Mamma Mia Film Locations in Skopelos, Greece | Travel | Scoop.it

Mark Tanner, a Simpson Travel sales consultant, shares details from his recent trip to Skopelos.

 

“I’ve travelled to quite a few Greek islands and thought I knew a little about most of them, but when it came to Skopelos, the best I could offer was that parts of ‘Mamma Mia‘ were filmed on the island and, not having seen the film, I was struggling to think of anything else. Having recently travelled there, I can now confidently say that Skopelos is a little gem whose inhabitants are probably happy that it is not as popular as some of its neighbours. Skopelos is one of those islands that has managed to maintain its character, charm and its own identity.

Jew-hating airline cancels flight rather than allow Israeli passengers

Jew-hating airline cancels flight rather than allow Israeli passengers | Travel | Scoop.it
Kuwait hates Jews so much that its national airline has ditched a popular and lucrative New York-to-London flight rather than allow Israelis on its planes, authorities said Thursday.

Kuwait Airways killed the flight to spite American officials, who threatened to pull the airline’s permit to fly to the United States if they continued discriminating against Israeli passengers.

The airline says they cannot allow Israelis on the planes because the Middle Eastern kingdom prohibits it citizens from doing business with citizens of the Jewish state.

“On December 15th, Kuwait Airways informed the United States Department of Transportation that they will be eliminating service between JFK and London Heathrow,” said a department spokesperson.

The airline has at least twice refused to let customers with Israeli passports buy tickets on flights from New York to London because of the Islamic state’s ban on trade with Israel.

It did not say when its last flight on that route would be.

Politicians who had pushed for the feds to nix the airline’s permit say they are glad the company decided to end the flight.



“If you’re so anti-Semitic that you would rather cancel a flight than provide service to Israeli passport holders, then good riddance,” said Councilman Rory Lancman.

Lancman said it was unconscionable that Kuwait, who the United States helped liberate in the early 1990s with the help of Jewish soldiers, would continue to discriminate against Israelis.

“They should show some gratitude that they even have their dictatorial little half-assed country,” said Lancman.

The airline will still run its New York-to-Kuwait flight from JFK, but since Israelis are not allowed in the country, the feds cannot require them to allow Israelis on that flight.

The lawyer for Eldad Gatt, the Israeli citizen who tried to buy a ticket on the New York to London flight in the fall of 2013 and was denied, said he does not plan to drop his suit against the airline and that he would like a formal ruling that the airline is discriminating against Israelis.

Kuwait Airways officials did not return calls for comment.

The world's most powerful passports revealed

The world's most powerful passports revealed | Travel | Scoop.it

Australian passports are the ninth most powerful in the world, according to a new online passport index that allows you to sort passports of the world by a 'passport power rank.' Created by financial advisory firm Arton Capital, the index determines the ranking of a country by calculating how many countries passport holders can visit without an advance visa, or by purchasing visa on arrival. Those holding Australian passports can visit 138 countries without having to obtain a visa prior to arrival. USA and UK passports are the most powerful, each possessing a total of 147 countries its citizens can visit without needing a visa. French, German and South Korean citizens tied for second place, with 145 countries. Find out more.

Australia to trial cloud passports in world-first move | Travel | Scoop.it
Under a cloud passport, a traveller's identity and biometrics data would be stored in a cloud, so passengers would no longer need to carry their passports and risk having them lost or stolen. DFAT says 38,718 passports were registered as lost or stolen in 2014-15, consistent with the 38,689 reported missing the previous year.

Yes indeed, all good points - but I don't see them as showstoppers but rather as technical constraints, that may ultimately the solution impractical until cloud access maturity is there. But I thought it is a great example of digital transformation, no? ;-)
