Airports with Most Expensive Airfares
In travels through Texas, I have found certain airports charge more to
fly out of than others. As noted in this WSJ
article, which airport you fly from in the same city can vary by
almost $200 as is the case in Houston (with Bush Airport being the
highest at an average $476.60). The cheapest airport to fly out of was
Atlantic City, NJ with the average fare being $171.84.
The full list can be located here.

Hotels opening in China
As noted in this recent FoxBusiness
article, companies such as Starwood are now opening a new hotel in
China at the rapid pace of every two weeks.
As notes Matt Gaghen, vice president of brand management at Starwood, "Both domestic travel and outbound travel are growing really substantially. The market, overall, is booming. It’s not one at the expense of the other.”
It will be interesting to see how this evolves as more Chinese citizens have the capability to travel more both inside and outside of the country and more foreigners travel to China destinations.
