The Expedia and ARC break the "Last Minute Myth".
ARC and Expedia have published the results of the 4th ARC AAO, an important cooperation between two leading airlines. It also includes comments from Egencia, Expedia's global enterprise, on the issue of travelling. ARC and Expedia specialists analyzed aeronautical information and used millions of points for national and global aeronautics to help travelers save on fares in 2018.
It shows how travelers can add value to their travel budget by taking a strategy approach not only when booking a trip but also at the beginning of their itinerary. The study also shows the latest trend for recreational and business travelers to spend less on aircraft seating at the "tip end".
Lastminute.com gets another new chief, this year Expedia executive Matthew Crummack
Any changes at the top of Lastminute.com returned with the resignation of Ed Kamm, superseded by Expedia accommodation chief Matthew Crummack. Combs is going to follow his careers "outside the group", says the mother airline Travelocity Global of Lastminute.com. Formerly Expedia VP of Accommodation, Mr. Croummack was recognized by his new employers as a developer of the company's hotels, particularly in Europe.
Lastminute.com's top executive carousel has remained almost unchanged since the departure of co-founder Brent Hoberman in 2006. Kamm most recently succeeded Ian McCaig as the company's managing director, but that was only eight of them. Kamm, a 16 year old saber vet, came to Lastminute.com via Hoberman in 2005 as CFO and became McCaig's CFO in 2007.
The other high-ranking personalities who have retired in recent years are British CEO John Bevan and Sales Deputy Chairman Vic Darvey. Lastminute.com recently reorganized its top executives throughout Europe - at the same date as the takeover by Kamm - and created a new position as the company's sole distributor. But since Kamm became chairman in November, there has also been a move at the top of Travelocity.
Carl Sparks, Chairman of the Gilt Groupe, arrived in April this year as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Travelocity, succeeding Hugh Jones, who continued to join Sabre Airline Solutions within the mother ship. I would like to thank Ed for his esteemed management and continuous advances at Lastminute.com," said Sparks.
Mr. Croummack worked for Procter & Gamble and was previously Expedia GMD at Nestle. After the takeover of the Venere property in July 2008, he is also responsible for the Venere area.
