This week’s broadcast of Eye on Travel is from The Gansevoort Hotel in the Meatpacking District of New York City. Peter has all the travel updates, from the wild profits airlines are now making from ancillary fees, to a story of how many people have set the record for living inside airports. Then, Jeffrey LeFrancois, Executive Director of the Meatpacking District Management Association, talks about the history of the Meatpacking District and how it has exploded as a fashion, arts, and food capital. Kim Conaty, from the Whitney Museum of American Art, discusses the museum’s move to the Meatpacking District, its special collections, and how and when to see them. And, in the midst of soaring airfares throughout the U.S., Peter speaks with Jon Gieselman, President of Expedia Brands, as he breaks down airfare prices and talks about the best day to get the best deals. There’s all this and more on this edition of Eye on Travel.
