Flights to Hong Kong cancelled due to ongoing unrest
Asian airlines have reduced flights to Hong Kong due to the ongoing protests in the capital. Tear gas, looting and petrol bombs are now the order of the day as anti-government protesters continue to wreak havoc in the city.
PT Garuda Indonesia (Persero) Tbk, India's SpiceJet Ltd, Malaysia's AirAsia Group Bhd, and the Philippines' PAL Holdings Inc and Cebu Air Inc have already cancelled flights to Hong Kong.
Disney World introduces “air gondolas”
Disney World has introduced a creative way of getting around the resort. Floating trams, moving at speeds of 17 km an hour have been implemented to make transportation around the crowded park that much easier.
“These gondolas are almost amusement rides in their own right. While they probably won’t make getting around the theme park much easier, they will be fun for visitors."
