Are you sure that number is correct? Paris does just over 20 million visitors a year.

We'd have to compare the methods used by the two cities in counting. Tourism figures are notoriously difficult (are business travelers disaggregated? Regional visitors? etc.) It's possible that if Paris used the NY methodology, it would have a much larger figure.

Sort of whether to count all migratory birds or only the snowbirds.

Re: Visitor Totals: The "Ears" Eat the "Apple"

DrFumblefinger ·
Interesting piece, Paul. I believe that both are actually drawing more people than Paris (France) is as well. I don't see much of an overlap in the target populations these cities draw from. Orlando is very clearly family-oriented, with multiple theme parks. More of a budget destination, although with admissions at the parks being what they are, not that cheap anymore. New York City a big cosmopolitan attraction. Most folks would consider it too expensive for "family travel".

Re: Visitor Totals: The "Ears" Eat the "Apple"

PHeymont ·
I think Orlando is a big pull for overseas travelers as well, which bodes well for them. Length of stay is an issue, especially, for New York; I think we get people on a shorter stay because of the cost. For overseas travelers, I think NY and Orlando are often both on the agenda, based on the questions I used to see on other boards!

Re: Airbus designs a seat with storage but with less legroom

PHeymont ·
I love the idea of better storage space, but I'm not ready to put my legs in the overhead! I'm sure this design would work well with 40" pitch, but not with 30-32" as we mostly get. But perhaps if they made the bins about half the depth shown in the design, there might be footroom and storage.
Comment

Re: Airbus designs a seat with storage but with less legroom

DrFumblefinger ·
As Paul says, without adequate pitch between the rows, this would be painful. Might be useful on planes that only fly one or two hours, but it would kill you on a long haul.
