    Bermuda attracted 50,000 visitors last year …. That’s roughly about the amount of tourist who fly over the Island per week every week ! So what is Bill Hanbury and the Tourism Minister doing about it …. Nothing !

    These huge jets fly over on a daily, delivering 100′s to the competition…. when the most we can get excited about is a diversion… Have we talked with Air Berlin? Lufthansa? Alitalia? Surely we can get twice a week charters in the off season. PS.. I trust the one stay-over we did receive is recovering well.
