Is business travel on its last legs?
Plus, Princess Cruise Lines was sued by someone whose family member died after purportedly being infected by coronavirus on a ship. But their supporting claims seem a little murky.
Those were some of the day’s travel posts I thought you, too, may find interesting.
RIP, Business Travel?
Gary Leff at VFTW hypothesizes that business travel — at least as we know it — will be a thing of the past.
Call me old-fashioned but I think face-to-face meetings are necessary for some jobs — especially sales-oriented opportunities.
Gary brings up some interesting points — as do a few commenters. Check out the post and read the responses.
Princess Cruises Sued
A woman and her daughter sued Princess Cruises over the death of a family member who sailed last month. Their claim? The family member died because he contracted coronavirus onboard the ship.
According to TMZ, the woman says “[her family] would not have boarded if they knew about the outbreak [on the ship], and would have immediately taken the first flight home.”
I’m very sorry they lost a family member. But I will point out that their cruise departed March 8 — more than a month after coronavirus cases were reported on ships.
