Minister of State for External Affairs Shashi Tharoor, who was recently pulled up by the Centre for his prolonged stay at a five-star hotel, has again managed to offend his party's sensibilities with his veiled remark about the hypocrisy of the Congress on-going austerity drive. Though it was his description of economy class travel as cattle class travel that the Congress objected to, it is the allusion to holy cows posted on Twitter that may have rankled the party more.
It is strange, today, to think of traveling as charming or romantic, like it used to be. Traveling is now more like cattle herding: stand in line, show your documents, get scanned and stamped, move forward, sit down, wait for the sign etc etc etc And, by all means, as you go through all this deadening boredom: "*keep shopping*". Armed with ear plugs and eye patches, bubbles of digital music and literature, I go through all this meaningless circus grumpily. Soon enough, I will wash the airport's dirty air away in the hot shower of a new destination. Soon enough, wearing a fresh shirt, I will be walking on new streets, sampling new flavors. And the charm and the romance can start all over again.
Travel to distant lands is one of the greatest privileges we can have. But the actual act of getting there via a cramped aeroplane surrounded by other peoples' children and fellow grumpy travellers can be misery. But one woman has tips to help save your sanity. Food and travel writer Annabelle White joined Paul Henry this morning, with the following advice: Try and get an aisle seat, there is a bit more leg room. Get eye drops - Biotears are great. Take a backpack. Bring an empty water bottle so you can fill up and keep hydrated. An eye mask and earplugs are a must. Facial spray can help keep you fresh. Watch the full interview with Annabelle White.

Economy class is getting even bigger after Emirates reconfigured its new Airbus A380 planes to hold the most seats ever for an airliner. Already the world’s largest passenger plane, the new two-class A380 will hold a staggering 615 passengers in business and economy – but travellers in so-called cattle class will not lose any legroom inside Emirates' overhauled cabin. The luxury Gulf carrier has made room for about 130 additional economy seats by scrapping the spacious first class cabin and trimming 18 flat-bed seats from business class. Unveiled at the Dubai Airshow this week, Emirates’ two-class A380 has 557 seats in economy and 58 seats and a lounge in business – carrying enough passengers to rival the population of a small village. The two-class planes will carry about 100 more passen...
