Obama Inherits...

For the new president-elect there will be no sleep, no holiday, no respite. The state of the US economy demands action and a heck of a lot of effort.

Yes we can - became - Yes we did - now its "Oh shit, now we have a boat load of work to do."

For the US Airline, Travel and Tourism market segment there is a clear set of wins here. Firstly - the standing of America has to go up. It couldn't get worse. Obama made a key point in his acceptance speech to include a message to the rest of the world. And I believe he meant it. The proof will however come from the people of our industry. We all have individual and collective tasks to rebuild travel to and from America. A resurgent America can be both a catalyst and indeed an engine of economic vibrancy and growth in the ATT Sector. No matter where we are on the planet. America matters.

Yes! Let's get down to work. Today is the first day of a new era. Let's all work towards that no matter what the colour of your skin is, your creed, preference or heritage. We can all make the world a better place. America has opened the door. "C'mon in!"
