Travel-Intel looks into strange trends in airline safety and guns on planes

Travel is an industry unto itself with all manner of tips and trends that need to be curated and watched to make the often chaotic times of travel, smooth and purposeful.”

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, USA, May 23, 2023/ — It doesn’t take a jump-up scene with Liam Neeson to sense the ongoing danger of boarding flights with passengers that smuggle firearms onto flights. Often it is a simple mistake, an oversight with major consequences. Other times it is a purposeful act as the nation continues to split and polarize in strange and inexplicable ways.

Travel-Intel looks at these trends, the types of incidents that have made the headlines of late, the airports to avoid and what measures are in process to mitigate these dangers.

The latest issue of Travel-Intel, sent monthly to travel experts and advisors around the world, also looks at Saudi Arabia and what seems to be an unexpected welcoming of LGBTQ visitors for the first time. The momentous move signals a trend within the insular desert kingdom of opening up to new freedoms and a catapulting of regional mores into the 21st century.

Other articles in the May 2023 issue of Travel-Intel include a feature on Nayarit in Mexico, which is gaining popularity with U.S. travelers but maintaining a solid handle on preserving local culture, especially in scenic “Magic Towns” near Puerto Vallarta where it is possible to experience the centuries within the architecture, tales and scenic wonders.

In more contemporary concerns, Travel-Intel seeks answers to whether electric vehicles, or EVs, can compete with gasoline and hybrid vehicles when it comes to the comforts and rigors of the Great American Roadtrip.

Finally, Travel-Intel turns a wistful gaze to the world of Disney theme parks, which are saying good bye to the legendary Splash Mountain days at the end of the month and adding to a long list of vanishing Disney rides over the decades. And for those concerned about disappearing attractions and fading history in America, Travel-Intel lists the 11 most endangered destinations in the U.S. — where to go and what to visit right now … before you can’t.
