Tues List: Flybe, Georgia, Moscow

Posted in: Lists


It’s a Tuesday, the sun is shining, and there’s a snap in our step. What’s on our minds? Thanks for asking.

1. Flybe is apparently looking for another acquisition. It looks as if the purchase of BA Connect has only whetted the airline’s desire to grow.

2. We’re Georgia mad, again, thanks to Kate Weinberg’s Georgia travelogue in the FT this past weekend. Horseback riding, check. Mountainous terrain, check. Involved toasts at mealtimes, check.

3. And in the New York Times, also this past weekend, Sophia Kishkovsky teases us with a suggestive description of Moscow’s enormous All-Russian Exhibition Center, an olio of Soviet triumphalism and fairground amusements.
