Being a frequent traveller, I’m an avid reader of your magazine. I really appreciate the news and the insights that are provided on the industry, the tests on flights, the analysis and the tips on hotels and restaurants, and the reports on how cities and new destinations are reinventing themselves.
I also enjoy the debates that emerge among readers as the result of articles; sharing opinions and experiences enriches everybody’s knowledge on the fascinating “emotions” we feel when travelling, and provides an opportunity to look at things from a different perspective.
The letters are my favourite part of the magazine. Yes, I know that it is not pleasant to go through negative adventures during business or leisure trips, however, I must admit that I enjoy some of the stories.
The magazine is very professionally done, so I was a bit surprised when I found two letters, which had been awarded star letter status in separate UK issues, also appear in the July/August 2018 Asia-Pacific edition that I read on Singapore Airlines flights from Frankfurt to Singapore, July 28, and Singapore to Brisbane, July 29. The letters were: “Why are meals served at such strange times of day?” by Tony Hall, London (from the UK May issue), and “Positive Outlook” by Rabbi Zach Shapiro, Los Angeles (from the UK June issue). By the way, several letters by Mr Shapiro have been published previously, and I’ve found them all interesting.
Could this duplication be because you have several editions of the magazine related to the different continents?
In conclusion, I just wanted to share my thoughts and my appreciation for your magazine. Please keep it up.
