Saturday, July 28th, 2012

BERLIN (AP) — Head to the checkout at an Ikea in Stockholm to pay for your new leather corner sofa and with the swipe of a Visa card it’s yours. Don’t try that in Berlin — that’ll be €1,699 ($2,080) up front please.

Friday, February 24th, 2012

24 February 2012.  News reports state that Air New Zealand has announced a big slump in profits and warned that it is cutting more than 400 jobs. Some staff will be made redundant, others will not be replaced when they leave, and more will not get their contracts renewed. The airline’s six month net profit, after tax, was down by 61 percent to $38 million. One contributing factors for deepening financial problems and profit loss might be the lack of cooperation with local travel agents (zero commission policy plus additional fees)
