Las Vegas Begins Hotel to Airport Check-in
We want convenience any way we can get it, right? A new story out of Las Vegas puts the "C" in convenience when it comes to travel.
New technology from Certified Airline Passenger Services now enables passengers to drop their bags, check-in and select airline seats--all in the comfort of their Las Vegas hotel amidst the bells and clangs of slot machines.
Vegas is experimenting with concept, and participating airlines include America West, Continental, Delta, Southwest and Sun Country. There is a $6 per person charge for the service. Available hotels include the Imperial Palace, Bally’s, Paris, Flamingo Hilton, Las Vegas Hilton, Luxor, Mandalay Bay and the Sahara.
What's next? A spokesperson for Certified says that the nation's top 10 busiest airports are the best targets for hotel service.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
