Travel News Roundup

This week in travel... 
  • The U.S. State Department has issued a worldwide travel alert in the wake of the death of Osama Bin Laden and other events in the Middle East.  In response, the TSA has ramped up security in certain hub airports. However, rumors of a "trusted traveler program" point to decreased levels of security-point hassle in the future.
  • Southwest and Airtran announced a merger this week, a boon for fans of the budget airlines.
  • Where extreme travel, corporate sponsorship, and social media merge:  the first tweet from the top of Mt. Everest.
  • Feeling guilty about leaving your beloved pet behind while you embark on a vacation or business trip?  NYTimes Travel has the rundown on airport-proximate pet-stay facilities
  • The Royal Wedding roar has died down, and the Olympic chaos is still a year away. Now might be the best time to visit London (if you'd like to avoid those crowds).
Each Friday, we gather the week's news articles relating to luxury travel and trending topics that sparked our interest. If you see an article that you'd like to share, please email!
