Travel News Roundup

This week's travel news...
  • Flights were delayed in Oklahoma City's Will Rogers World Airport this afternoon while a suspicious, noise-emitting package was investigated.  The package, left unattended in the baggage claim area, belonged to a Houston man who missed his flight after checking luggage. 
  • British Airways has launched a daily nonstop flight from San Diego to London.  Meanwhile, another new long-haul route might be proving overly ambitious:  Qantas' non-stop from Brisbane to Dallas was recently forced to refuel on the island of New Caledonia.
  • American Airlines lost its battle with Orbitz, after a Chicago court ordered the airline to allow online booking engines access to its fare and scheduling information. American had been trying to avoid third party fees by working more closely with travel agents in order to reach customers more directly.
  • Conde Nast Traveler has released its annual list of the world's best spas:  this year, 250 of them made the cut! 
  • Chesley 'Sully" Sullenberger, the celebrated pilot who made an expert emergency landing in New York's Hudson River in 2009, is joining CBS Evening News as an airline industry expert. He retired from his career as a pilot last year.
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!
