Katrina impact on hotels, meetings, airlines


There's a good article in Business Travel News exploring the impact of the hurricane on hotels, meetings, and airlines. A snip of the airline portion of the article:

    Operationally, supply disruptions could lead to additional scheduling problems as some airlines and airports reportedly are experiencing fuel shortages. The Air Transport Association and the Federal Aviation Administration last week quelled supply fears, saying airlines will have sufficient fuel on hand to maintain their flight schedules.

    At the same time, analysts and industry observers last week anticipated airfare hikes and fresh fuel surcharges. Delta, meanwhile, increased minimum-stay requirements on many tickets for flights to and from Atlanta.
