Ground Max jets could contribute to higher summer fares

The grounding of Boeing 737 Max jets likely means that fare increases this summer will be larger than already expected and airlines will struggle to handle disruptions such as storms that shut down hub airports.With Max jets grounded after two deadly accidents, U.S. airlines will operate about 200 fewer daily flights than planned through the heart of the peak summer season. That’s around 35,000 seats lost every day.Travel-data firm Hopper said this week that it expects the average domestic round trip in May will cost $236, 7% more than a year ago, and keep rising in June. Most of that increase is due to the price of jet fuel and other economic causes, but some of it is due to the Max, according to Hayley Berg, the firm’s economist.The grounding of Max jets will leave other planes more crowded.“We expect a certain level of chaos,” said Henrik Zillmer, CEO of AirHelp, which helps travellers get compensation for travel disruptions. “With so many passengers being rebooked, flights may get more overbooked than usual, especially when weather or other factors cause cancellations.”For some passengers, the grounding of the Max will mean a change in travel plans.Southwest, American and United are the three U.S. airlines that used the Max before regulators grounded the jet in mid-March. They are taking passengers whose original itinerary included a Max and rebooking them on flights using other planes.That could mean a nonstop flight turns into a connecting flight. Or it might arrive several hours later than the traveller expected.Travellers who don’t like their new itinerary have limited options. Zillmer said under most international laws the grounding of the Max by governments is considered an extraordinary circumstance, and passengers aren’t eligible for compensation for resulting disruptions.Travellers can seek a full refund, however, even if they bought a nonrefundable ticket.“If the new flight doesn’t work for you, you might consider getting your money back and finding a flight that suits you on your own,” said Tracy Stewart, content editor for travel site But he warned that you might end up paying more that way, especially because prices tend to rise closer to summer.Southwest Airlines has more Max jets than anyone else — 34 — and was scheduled to receive another 41 later this year, although that schedule is now in doubt.Still, the Max accounts for only about 5% of the Southwest fleet and less than 1% of the passenger-carrying capacity of U.S. airlines overall.Berg, the Hopper economist, said heavily travelled routes will probably see little disruption, but routes with lower demand might see some cancellations or suspensions for a short time.One example is Pittsburgh, where Southwest plans to suspend service to Los Angeles and Cancun, Mexico, next month because of the Max situation.Until the Federal Aviation Administration grounded the Max in March, Southwest was using them on many trans-continental flights. American Airlines, with 24 Max planes, flew them heavily in and out of Miami.Southwest and American both say have redistributed their fleets so that no routes suffer a disproportionate seat shortage due to the grounding of the Max.“The Max impact is not isolated to any region or route,” said Southwest spokesman Chris Mainz. “On any given day, with 34 Max, we could have 146 flights on 115 routes touching 44 airports with a Max. And we don’t schedule them the same every day. The impact truly is across our network.”United hopes to have its Max jets flying again in July, while Southwest and American have dropped them from their schedules into August. Boeing is working on a software fix that it hopes will convince regulators to let the planes return to service.It remains to be seen how many travellers will be reluctant to board the plane after crashes that killed 346 people in Indonesia and Ethiopia. Preliminary reports found that software on the plane forced the noses down, and pilots were unable to regain control.If the planes are cleared to fly, passengers who cancel a reservation or refuse to board the plane because they are afraid won’t be eligible for compensation, according to AirHelp’s Zillmer. They can ask the airline for a refund, but that might not work either.“By the time fall rolls around and the software updates have been applied and Maxes are back in operation, it’s pretty unlikely airlines would be as flexible with refunds and ticket changes,” said airfarewatchdog’s Stewart.It will be up to consumers, he said, to check what kind of plane the airline plans to use before they click “buy” on the ticket.___David Koenig can be reached at Koenig, The Associated Press read more

Sri Lankan gets Foreign Domestic Worker of the Year award in Singapore

Sri Lankan Jayawardena Mudiyanselage Sittamma Jayawardena has received the Foreign Domestic Worker of the Year award in Singapore, which comes with a cash prize of $2,000, the Straits Times reported.On top of household chores, the 60-year-old Sri Lankan cared for her employer’s bedridden wife from 1997 till her death last year. She would bathe the woman, change her diapers and urine catheter, feed her every few hours through a nose tube, administer medication, and even take the initiative to groom her with a haircut. Said her employer Chua Choo Hock, 76, who is retired: “The family is always thankful and appreciative of her dedication to my wife and our family… She has become more of a family member to us now after so many years.” The first and second runners-up in the foreign domestic worker category took home $1,500 and $1,000 respectively, while the five merit winners each received $500. The employers received certificates.Since its inception in 2005, Fast has provided subsidised training programmes for about 25,000 foreign domestic workers every year. It also runs a helpline and clubhouse for domestic workers and provides avenues for legal aid. Foreign Domestic Worker Day, organised by the Foreign Domestic Worker Association for Social Support and Training (Fast) and the Association of Employment Agencies (Singapore), drew more than 7,000 people this year who watched stage performances and took part in activities such as lucky draws.The annual competition saw more than four times as many entries compared with last year. Of the 442 entries, 341 were for the foreign domestic worker category. Ms Jayawardena intends to save part of her cash prize, and give the rest to her 100-year-old mother who lives in Sri Lanka. read more

As Syrian exodus continues UN official urges Europe to help shoulder refugee

The United Nations refugee chief today voiced concern about serious gaps in the protection of Syrians who are fleeing the conflict in their country and arriving in Europe, and urged a more generous and consistent approach as they seek shelter and asylum.“Syrians are fleeing one of the worst conflicts the world has seen in decades, and many of them have been subjected to unspeakable human rights violations and persecution in their home country,” António Guterres said in remarks to a meeting in Lithuania of the European Union’s Justice and Home Affairs Council.“Ensuring adequate standards of treatment for them as they seek safety in Europe should be a priority for every EU member state,” he added. Mr. Guterres noted that just two European countries – Germany and Sweden – had received nearly two-thirds of the Syrians seeking protection in the entire EU. He urged more countries to help Syria’s neighbours shoulder the burden and to offer asylum or resettlement, saying: “A positive example from Europe is now crucial.” According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the agency headed by Mr. Guterres, the number of Syrian asylum claims in EU countries remains manageable, standing at slightly more than 40,000 since the beginning of the crisis in March 2011. This compares to Syria’s neighbours, who are providing shelter to almost 1.8 million registered Syrian refugees. “As the exodus continues and prospects for a political solution for Syria remain poor, there are warning signs of destabilization in some neighbouring countries . . . Lebanon continues to keep its borders open, but elsewhere in the region access to safety is becoming more difficult for Syrians trying to flee,” Mr. Guterres warned. This was “the first real test” to show that the Common European Asylum System (under development since 1999) can function as it should, he said, while citing flaws and inconsistencies in asylum policy across Europe. He said recognition rates varied greatly across the EU; too many States fail to provide swift and fair access to asylum procedures for Syrians; the types of protection and associated rights which Syrians are granted across the EU are inconsistent; and the treatment of Syrian asylum-seekers needs to be improved in several member States, including excessive use of detention.Mr. Guterres also highlighted the case of Turkey, which has received more than 10 times as many Syrians as have claimed asylum in other countries in Europe. “While the management of borders is a sovereign right and legitimate priority of States, the means must be found to ensure that Syrians seeking protection at the EU’s frontiers can gain access to territory, procedures and safety. This is crucial in order to demonstrate concretely the European commitment to responsibility-sharing with Turkey and other host countries,” he said.The High Commissioner proposed five key steps that the EU should take, beginning with ensuring access to territory and swift and fair asylum procedures for those seeking protection, notwithstanding the ongoing efforts to improve border control at sensitive external EU frontiers.Second, a more consistent and generous approach to protection is needed, particularly as concerns the recognition rates and the forms of protection that are being awarded to Syrian claimants. “As the conflict is unlikely to end soon, UNHCR hopes to see protection rates increasing across Europe, and in particular the granting of refugee status with its associated rights,” he said. He also called for more flexibility in the use of existing measures, including helping to reunite family members already in Europe by flexibly applying the Dublin Regulation [which determines the European State responsible to examine an asylum application within Europe until a decision has been made]; dispensing with visa requirements; and facilitating the entry of Syrians for work, study, family or humanitarian purposes.Mr. Guterres encouraged EU States to establish strict limits and safeguards on the use of detention, explore alternatives to detention, and do more to improve the conditions for asylum-seekers who are awaiting decisions on their protection claims.“The EU must engage in more burden-sharing initiatives so as to help mitigate the crushing impact which the refugee crisis is having on Syria’s immediate neighbours,” he added.As many as 100,000 people have been killed since fighting began in March 2011 between the Syrian Government and opposition groups seeking to oust President Bashar Al-Assad. The UN estimates that currently at least 6.8 million Syrians require urgent humanitarian assistance, half of whom are children. read more

Meyer wont recruit Penn State players others disagree

CHICAGO – Ohio State coach Urban Meyer took exception to coaches being allowed to recruit current Penn State football players, but would not rule out signing a player that initiated contact with him. Other Big Ten coaches do not share the same view. “I have a problem with that,” Meyer said of coaches actively recruiting PSU players. “But as a player, a young man has a right to play wherever he wants to play. We have to keep that in mind.” As part of the sanctions levied against Penn State for the child-sex abuse scandal involving former defensive coordinator Jerry Sandusky and former coach Joe Paterno, the NCAA said current PSU players are allowed to transfer to any school without penalty – even if that school is within the Big Ten. Some schools have taken a more active approach than others. Illinois had eight assistant coaches at “two establishments” in State College, Pa., Wednesday and “called individuals” to meet, Illinois coach Tim Beckman said. “We only talked to individuals that would be willing to meet with us,” Beckman said. “We did not go after them. They had the opportunity to come to us if they wanted to.” Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany met with coaches early Thursday and said he advised them to let the athletic directors handle the communication between a school and a potential transfer candidate from PSU. Delany said there was nothing illegal about Illinois sending coaches to State College, but did not necessarily endorse it. “I would hope they would take (the Thursday meeting) into consideration,” Delany said. Purdue coach Danny Hope also expressed interest in pursuing Penn State’s players. “The NCAA has established the rules and the guidelines and obviously because they’re strong from an ethics standpoint, and as long as we’re compliant, we’re going to exercise every opportunity we can to enhance our own football team,” Hope said. The Nittany Lions are faced with a four-year bowl ban and a reduction of 40 scholarships over four years. The school was also fined $60 million. Wednesday, many members of the Nittany Lions team made a joint statement and announced their intentions to stay at the school despite the sanctions. Multiple reports have said PSU junior running back Silas Redd met with USC coach Lane Kiffin about possibly transferring, but no announcement has been made. First-year Nittany Lions coach Bill O’Brien said no player has told him of his intentions to transfer and that he is not concerned about other schools recruiting his players. “I have no idea what other schools were on campus, nor do I care,” O’Brien said. “(Other schools) can do what they want as long as they tell our compliance office that they’re contacting these kids, and it is what it is.” Delany said that the Big Ten university presidents unanimously voted to allow PSU players to transfer within the Big Ten, but most coaches seem to taking a hands-off approach. Michigan’s Brady Hoke, Wisconsin’s Bret Bielema, Nebraska’s Bo Pelini and Minnesota’s Jerry Kill all had expressed views similar to Meyer and said they would not recruit PSU football players. “I made the decision as head coach that we would not reach out to any Penn State players,” Bielema said. “I think one of the things that I’ve loved about being in this conference is a genuine respect for everybody in our league that you are a Big Ten brother. “I have a group of 105 players that are reporting on Aug. 5 that I want to understand and believe that I think they can help us win another championship. And to bring someone in at this point so close to the season, I just wasn’t comfortable with it.” read more

Hush it up

Hush it up

first_imgIf not censor board but Ramesh Sippy, the director had his way, the 1975 classic Sholay would have had a climax where no police officer comes to the rescue of the dacoit Gabbar; where Thakur could take his revenge on his own. But that was not to be. So, Sholay took a different trail in history up till early 90’s when the director’s cut came out, revealing two different climax scenes. Whatever the reasons: emergency, or the state’s and censors’ belief that a violent climax would instigate people to take up law in their hands; several other films in cinemas history took to a path those were not set out for. Violence in Indian cinema and profanities used in it, dominated the day at the 100 years celebration of Indian Cinema at Siri fort Auditorium, on Friday. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’An eminent group of panelists including renowned directors, Vishal Bhardwaj and Ramesh Sippy graced the occasion with their presence. They took to a discourse on On Screen violence and the Culture of Cuss Words. Setting the tone for the discussion, K.Hariharan, the director of LV Prasad Film and TV academy in Chennai, presided over a workshop on the said subject in the morning session and showcased the uncut scenes of a number of Indian movies.The interaction was simmering with the audiences’ outrage. Complaints kept pouring out at the directors’, from right left and centre for the use of violence and expletives in cinema. What started off as an accusatory affair, took a turn in between, with takes from censor board executives and directors’ on issues that make violence imperative in cinema. Pankaja Thakur, the Chief Executive Officer of Central Board of Film Certification, questioned Vishal on introducing MCBC, the expletives in Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixOmkara. To this Vishal nonchalantly answered that he only mainstreamed those words. He made the Bollywood heroes use them, but theatre artists at NSD do it all the time. And nobody is to blame because he comes from a Delhi where a father calls out his son saying, ‘Oye Kaminey! Come here.’ Viewers need to understand the meanings associated with words and not take them on face value. Vishal who confesses that the movie Bandit Queen is his bible, went onto share an anecdote. During the release of Kaminey, the censor board asked him, ‘What kind of title was Kaminey?’. Smiling profusely he said, thankfully to his rescue, Gulzar wrote the title track ‘Meri aarzoo kaminey, Meri dost bhi Kaminey’ for the film, explaining the subtext associated with the word. Ramesh Sippy chipped in saying, in an age where a telephone company sells its chip with a tagline ‘Har ek dost kamina hota he’, and all of us lap it up; it’s too much to indict filmakers with the charge. Hariharan gave another spin to the tale, he asked the audience if they had read a poem – ‘Baba black sheep have you ay wool’. And ofcourse all of us by heart the rhyme as children. But not all of us know that it has racist subtext. Perhaps, cinema has come of age and now demands better understanding. The discussion swayed to this juncture where directors pointed that audience also need to understand the aesthetics of craft and not hold on to certain words. For now, filmmakers want better comprehension of their art, believing that they have due share of responsibility in reflecting the contemporary state of society.last_img read more

Spehar to meet both leaders to discuss Unficyp report

first_imgThe UN Secretary General’s Special Representative in Cyprus Elizabeth Spehar has asked to hold meetings with the two leaders to listen to their views on the current situation as regards the Cyprus problem.UN spokesperson in Cyprus Aleem Siddique told the Cyprus News Agency on Tuesday that Spehar has requested to meet President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci in light of the recent UN Security Council meeting and the forthcoming report of the UN Secretary General on the UN peacekeeping force in Cyprus (Unficyp).Spehar “usually sees both leaders before and after every report on Cyprus,” he said.After her meeting with Turkish Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci on Tuesday, Spehar will in due course hold a meeting with Anastasiades, Siddique said, adding that no date has been confirmed yet for this meeting.Spehar’s meetings with the leaders are not related with the UN Special Envoy Jane Holl Lute’s mission but to issues regarding Unficyp and the confidence building measures (CBMs), he said.Lute is currently engaged in an effort and has been holding contacts with the parties involved with the aim of agreeing on the terms of reference as to the methodology of a new negotiating process.In a statement issued after its meeting on Cyprus at the beginning of May, the UN Security Council urged the sides to agree terms of reference as a basis for meaningful results-oriented negotiations, mindful of the natural window of opportunity presented by the current electoral cycle.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
