News story: Post-Monarch review finds too many passengers flying unprotected

first_imgToo many air passengers are flying without adequate protection against the insolvency of their airline, a government-commissioned review has reported.The review found passengers must have clarity and confidence about the risks of airline insolvency and how they are protected when they travel.The current protection landscape does not give passengers enough support, is often confusing, and can lead to some passengers paying twice for the same protection while others, whether they know it or not, go unprotected.The Airline Insolvency Review was established by the Department for Transport following the collapse of Monarch in 2017, and has today (12 July 2018) published its interim report.Peter Bucks, Chair of the Airline Insolvency Review, said: The publication of the interim report follows extensive consultation, including 2 public evidence sessions held in London and Manchester.This has allowed the review team to discuss issues raised in the responses to the call for evidence, as well as offering those with an interest the opportunity to speak directly to the chair and review team. It represents a progress report on its analysis to date and sets out the programme of work it intends to undertake to inform its final recommendations.Recommendations will be developed as part of the final report, due to be published at the end of the year.Information on the availability of alternative capacityThe review looked at the capacity available on the world’s busiest route, London–New York. It found that for some airlines with high market share, even on this route, using existing alternative capacity would not be sufficient to enable all passengers to complete their journeys without significant delay. The analysis found that in the case of British Airways, there would be nearly four passengers chasing each available alternative seat.Even looking beyond routes between New York and London and including all major US hubs and all UK airports, there would still be at least 2 passengers for each available alternative seat. The review concluded that sufficient capacity was only therefore likely to exist for all airlines if European hubs were used and passengers undertook journeys with multiple legs.The review’s analysis also showed that the position is likely to be worse for short haul holiday flying, where highly seasonal, mainly outbound routes are common and lead to very low availability of alternative capacity.The review estimates the availability of charter aircraft to repeat a Monarch style operation, to be currently limited to around 60 aircraft outside the peak season. It is therefore not sufficient to deal with the larger airlines operating to and from the UK.Information on the risk of insolvencyThe review assessed the insolvency risk of the top 17 UK airlines that account for over 80% of the UK’s air passengers. The average risk of any one insolvency is around 25% in any one year. For the 11 airlines with publically available credit ratings the average probability rises from 6% this year to 13% in 15 years’ time.On average an airline insolvency would impact 500,000 passengers in 2018 to nearly 900,000 in 15 years’ time.This analysis is based on the average risks of companies with those credit ratings across all sectors. The risk in the aviation sector may be larger or smaller. For example, this analysis does not take into account the possibility that more airlines may cease trading through mergers and acquisitions than is the case across other sectors and hence avoid insolvency.Datasets for airline insolvencies amongst operators to and from the UK are very limited and single insolvency events would have undue significance in any analysis. For these reasons aviation specific insolvency data have not been used to generate this risk analysis. The review will be sensitivity testing these results against other metrics in the future. Out of hours media enquiries 020 7944 4292 Air travel clearly brings huge benefits, connecting people from all over the world, but when an airline goes out of business, it can affect large numbers of people who can often look to their government and the taxpayer to assist them in their hour of need. Too many do not have protection of their own, too often requiring the taxpayer to step in. Even though airline insolvencies are relatively rare, we need to be prepared to deal with the consequences for passengers when one occurs. Ensuring all passengers can get home requires organisation, funding and in many cases more than simply rebooking onto other flights. The interim report is a key milestone in the Airline Insolvency Review, giving the opportunity to reflect on the views we have heard to date and setting out our initial conclusions. In the next phase of our work, we will continue to engage openly with interested parties as we develop concrete proposals to address these complex issues. Switchboard 0300 330 3000 Media enquiries 020 7944 3021 Findings of the review so far have shown that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to repatriating passengers in the aftermath of an airline failure — the best approach will depend on the airline and circumstances of the failure.In the event of an airline insolvency, the review has identified that the most effective option is to keep the fleet of an insolvent airline flying. However, this is not without considerable challenges, risk and expense.Therefore it is necessary to ensure a range of options are available, including using existing alternative capacity where possible and chartering additional aircraft. This approach will be described in more detail in the final report.Other findings of the interim report include: the risk of an airline insolvency is significant and if it were to happen, could affect large numbers of people, as was seen in the cases of Monarch and Air Berlin current protection measures — such as travel insurance, credit cards, ATOL protection — often overlap, meaning that some passengers have paid for protection twice and others have no protection at all there are limits to the numbers of passengers that can be handled by existing capacity and Monarch-style charter operations — this means that larger UK airlines would need to be kept flying in administration to ensure passengers are able to make swift returns home and avoid long delays repatriating passengers is likely to require additional sources of funding than are currently available, if the burden is not to fall to the taxpayer — the review is exploring how these additional funds could be made available the review will look at the role that awareness-raising among passengers can play, but is sceptical it will deliver a solution to protect the taxpayer fully from the risk of intervention in larger airlines’ failures Aviation, Europe and technology media enquirieslast_img read more

Lawn care equipment stolen from Binghamton Boys and Girls Club

first_imgBINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The Boys and Girls Club of Binghamton says they had hundreds of dollars of equipment stolen from a shed on the club’s property. Staff says someone broke the lock on the club’s equipment shed late last week and stole several blowers, a weed wacker, several sets of hedge trimmers, and a portable welder among other equipment. “Anyone who would steal from the Boys and Girls Club doesn’t belong walking the streets,” he said. “It’s a place where kids who don’t have much come to have a good time with their peers and the staff that work here, you just don’t take from a place like that.” Unit Director Roberto Sostre says while he also uses the equipment for his own landscaping work, he can’t understand why anyone would steal property belonging to an organization like the Boys and Girls Club. The Binghamton Police department says they are currently investigating the theft, if you have any information you can call the detective division at (607) 772-7080.last_img read more

A first-class accommodation unit does not cost a fortune

first_imgRavi Sabharwal, co-owner of the tourist platform Oliver’s Travels, in an interview with Booking.com he suggested a few tips on how to rearrange your accommodation units without investing the entire fortune.Sabharwal knows best how inevitable investments are, as he rents luxury villas through the aforementioned platform. If we want to secure reservations, stays and overnight stays it is necessary to invest in order to keep up with customer demand. For example, visitors require a connected bathroom, super high speed internet, swimming pools, hot tubs… and the list does not end there. Many units try to keep up with the market and offer various benefits and facilities in their offer, but how to stand out as the best in a sea of ​​identical offers (without paying an enormous amount for it).Sabharwal primarily advises investing in good furniture, far from factory or again, luxury. For a breath of freshness that visitors will always receive well, it is enough to visit local markets or second-hand shops. In these places you can certainly find unique and quality pieces of furniture for a decent price.Also, it is good to pay attention to the kitchen inventory. Many guests have a habit of planning menus in advance, and the knowledge that they don’t have to worry about basic utensils or foods like spices or coffee and that they are taken care of can really be relevant when choosing accommodation. It is necessary to point out what is in the kitchen itinerary of the accommodation unit, and one of the great ideas is the possibility of ordering groceries before the arrival of the guest, which is also welcomed by Sabharwal.Guests can also be offered a list of local catering, cleaning services, but also babysitter services in case of families with children. Enabling the accommodation unit to be a safe environment for babies and young children certainly adds value to the accommodation. It can’t hurt when we expand the offer by choosing entertainment content or board games, and this place opens up a number of possibilities: cricket, badminton, table football, but also cheap but high-quality stream services such as Amazon Prime or Netflix. For those who do not have the necessary SMART equipment, there are also upgrades to older models that can be found at affordable prices, however visitors can be offered a DVD library as an alternative to stream television.Certainly attention should be paid to details. They are a factor that gives the space personality, and a desirable departure from impersonality and uniformity. Flowers make the space seem homey and comfortable, and yet it costs almost nothing. Various details of the space give it something recognizable and in a subtle way they realize communication between the owner and the client. Speaking of communication, it is important to get to know the guest. For example, if visitors have children or pets, a few toys would surely leave a positive psychological impression, and the original welcome gift would be a basket with a range of local products: cheeses, homemade jams and marmalades, wine, pastries, etc.Instead of cluttering your guests with brochures and flyers, offer them your own suggestion of restaurants, attractions, excursions and unavoidable events – we have previously written about the benefits of full arrangements when keeping guests. Communication is paramount, and guests more often prefer safety and quality over price.After all, another handy detail is bathrobes and slippers, Sabharwal notes, and they also don’t require huge investments.Quality lies in the authenticity of an experience that requires a little imagination and ingenuity. Let the guest immerse himself in the offered arrangement, become a part of it and always gladly return to it.last_img read more

No. 1 USC stunned in road loss to No. 3 Pacific

first_imgThe USC men’s water polo team suffered a rare setback on Saturday, falling 10-6 to Pacific for the first time since 2002.The Trojans (20-2, 2-1) entered the game with the top spot in the nation, setting the stage for a clash of Mountain Pacific Sports Federation titans, as Pacific (16-3, 3-1) entered the game just two spots below.More than 1,300 fans attended the game in Stockton, Calif. and fostered a raucous environment to support their hometown Tigers. The Trojans struggled to stop Pacific’s high-octane offensive attack, highlighting an issue on defense that has recently become more prevalent for head coach Jovan Vavic’s squad.USC gave up 10 goals for the second consecutive game. They had previously allowed that many points just once in the team’s previous 20 matches this season.“We are giving up, again, too many goals,” Vavic said. “We just have to be more aware and tougher at defense.”The defensive problems were highlighted through the first three quarters, as the Trojans gave up eight goals to dig themselves an 8-5 hole entering the final stanza.Another tough aspect for the Trojans was the hostile crowd. As the undisputed top program in the nation, USC often becomes the marquee matchup for opponents — and the Tigers were clearly amped to host the Trojans.“It was a great atmosphere — lots of people, lots of cheering,” Vavic said. “You need to welcome that and enjoy it. But at the same time, some younger players do get nervous.”Though it certainly provided another challenge for the Trojans, Vavic welcomed the boisterous scene in Stockton.“We were talking about it before the game,” Vavic said. “If you’re the No. 1-ranked team in the country, people will come watch you play. And that is why you play for USC.”The Trojans held close in the beginning, scoring first and jumping out to a 2-1 lead behind two goals from senior utility man Mace Rapsey.But Pacific responded by scoring four consecutive goals through the second quarter. The Trojans came back and cut the margin to 5-4 off a five-meter penalty shot from junior driver Kostas Genidounias with 3:55 left in the second frame, but entered the break down 6-4 after the Tigers converted on a power play.The Trojans would get no closer than that two-goal margin, as the Tigers simply wore down USC’s defense and continued to pile it on.Some of USC’s stars continued their consistent play for the Trojans, as Rapsey and Genidounias led the Trojans with two goals apiece. But senior two-meter Jeremy Davie and senior driver Nikola Vavic each contributed just one goal.The loss dropped the Trojans behind Pacific by half a game for the top spot in the MPSF.As dynasties form, program outsiders can be quick to make comparisons between current teams and past squads. But coach Vavic asserts that every team has its own strengths and weaknesses.“This is a different team than the team we had last year,” Vavic said. “We have some young players and they are going to gain from this experience.”The Hall of Fame-worthy coach knows that the Trojans need not overreact to one loss, but simply keep their noses to the grindstone.“I think that focus is the biggest thing,” Vavic said. “We’re plenty strong, we have good speed … That’s the way we want it.”USC will trek back to NorCal next week, when they visit California in a high-profile match that will be televised on the Pac-12 Networks.The team will then return home to the friendly confines of the Uytengsu Aquatics Center on Nov. 10 for a matchup against the Pepperdine Waves.

(AP Photo/Kelvin Kuo)WHERE’S KEYNAN?Although many fans and analysts expected Middleton to be a part of the high leverage portion of the Angels bullpen, apparently Joe Maddon isn’t ready to put Middleton in that role yet.“I’d rather break him in slowly,” Maddon said Thursday afternoon. “He’s got the fine arm. There’s still some things I’d like him to settle in and at some point, yes, fold him into the latter part of the game. But right now we like earlier, or in the situations that you’ve seen him to this point.”Middleton entered in the seventh with a three-run lead in his first game, but his only other appearance was in the ninth inning with the Angels up by eight runs. He did not pitch in either of the two games that the bullpen let late leads get away.Middleton was the Angels closer just before undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2018. He has since worked to improve his changeup and slider, to go with his 97 mph fastball.“Keynan will get his opportunity,” Maddon said, “but for right now, though, it’s not necessarily high leverage.”ALSOThe Angels recalled reliever Kyle Keller from the Long Beach squad to take the roster spot of Mike Trout, who was placed on the paternity list…Julio Teheran was scheduled for a three-inning outing in a simulated game with the Angels reserve squad in Long Beach on Thursday afternoon. If he comes through that without any issues, he could be ready to join the Angels rotation next week. Teheran is behind the other starters because he missed the start of camp recovering from a bout with the coronavirus…Parker Markel has rejoined the Angels’ squad in Long Beach after being on the injured list for undisclosed reasons. The Angels don’t currently have anyone in their 60-player pool who is unavailable to work out.Related Articles On Opening Day this past Friday, Goodwin, Justin Upton, Keynan Middleton, Andrelton Simmons and Noé Ramirez all kneeled for the anthem. Since then Goodwin has continued to do so, while the others have either stood or been out of sight during the anthem.During the sport’s shutdown, Goodwin took part in some peaceful demonstrations in the wake of the George Floyd murder, which sparked a new wave of protests of systemic racism throughout the country.It’s been reflected around Major League Baseball, with players all around the majors kneeling during the anthem and wearing Black Lives Matter shirts, apparently with the support of the sport and the clubs.“This is kind of new territory, honestly, for me, and probably some of the other guys that are involved,” Goodwin said. “The main thing we have to do is keep bringing attention to the issue. We have to continue to use our voices the way we have been, and doing so collectively with everyone in sync and on the same page. I think it comes off as a stronger narrative when everyone is on the same page and doing everything together…“We have to keep bringing attention to the issue, keep peacefully protesting, keep using our voices the best we know how and keep making statements however we can, whether it’s on or off the field, on social media, even interviews like this.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone ANAHEIM — Brian Goodwin has continued to make a statement during the national anthem, even as some of his Angels teammates did so only on Opening Day.For a simple reason.The racism that Goodwin and other players have been protesting by kneeling during the national anthem still exists.“It’s an important issue,” Goodwin said Thursday. “It’s something that needs to be addressed, and when you have the stage to address it, I feel like you need to use it. And right now, I’m in position to have the stage and have the support from the Angels, so it would be a detriment to people who know me and my fans and people back home for me to not take advantage of it.” Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels’ Mike Trout working on his defense, thanks to Twitter Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros last_img read more
