Travel News

(Last update: 5/17/16)

  • Did you know that the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft, a recent addition to many international airline fleets, features a humidity controlled cabin?  Cabin humidity on a typical aircraft is roughly 2% - 4%, which is very dry, with a pressurized altitude of about 8,000 feet above sea level.  The Boeing Dreamliner, on the other hand, raises the humidity level to 15% with a pressurized altitude of 5,700 feet above sea level.  This perhaps underrated perk of flying in a Dreamliner helps travelers land feeling much less fatigued.
  • Airlines for America (AFA), the trade group representing the major U.S. airlines, has initiated an effort to bring visibility to the ever-increasing security wait times at U.S. airports.  Launching a website and hashtag called #IHateTheWait, AFA's initiative is meant to allow travelers to vent their frustrations in a public forum and to pressure the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and possibly even lawmakers into hiring and staffing more TSA officers to help alleviate the long waits.
  • Marriott International reported growth in both occupancy and average daily rate during the first quarter of 2016.  In this period, system wide occupancy increased 0.9% points to 71%, while the average daily rate increased 2.1% year over year to $177.19.
  • Did you know that the NYU Global Travel Team is available for presentations?  These "Road Show" visits are a great way to learn about all the services and cost savings that Global Travel can bring to your school or department.  Global Travel can present a detailed overview on how to book and pay for travel as well as help familiarize you with the NYU Traveler website and it's many helpful features.  To arrange for a Road Show visit to your NYU office or department location please email
