FOXTROTS

Fox – sly.  Trots – left-leaning (Trotsky) plus its more insalubrious meaning.

Foxtrots – leading the industry in a dance.

 

Asia Pacific inbound, outbound

Inbound

Our calculation of AsPac visitor arrivals for latest-month April, in the current editions of the Travel Business Analyst newsletter, shows +9.3%; previous month +5.3%.

 

Of the bigger destinations:

 

-Japan looking fair after fears that the China market would fall. Presumably gaining some traffic otherwise bound for Korea…

 

-…trouble in Korea – presumably because of fears concerning North Korea and US mutual armageddon threats.

 

-Thailand growth weak.

 

 

 

Outbound

Our calculation of AsPac resident departures for latest-month April, in the current editions of the Travel Business Analyst newsletter, shows +7.9%; previous month +6.9%.

 

Of the bigger markets:

 

-Doing well – Hong Kong, Korea.

 

-Weak – Singapore.
