    Am I the only one that realizes that we should be concentrating on our target market, North East America and Canada? To travel to Bermuda from India one has to get to Gatwick London then to Bermuda or New York to Bermuda. This is a long way to go when when there are so many cheaper options in Europe and that side of the world. I just had dinner with a couple from Boston and they have been coming here for 30 years, they have noticed the decline in Bermuda and said there is little to no advertising in their area for Bermuda. Before one says advertising at Fenway Park…please advertising to baseball fans a country that has no baseball.???/ It is so easy to get to Bermuda from Boston, New York, Baltimore yet we only bring in 200,000(if that) tourists a year..and most of these are on the cruise ships. Advertise in these areas..Jamaica is, Aruba is, Dominican Republic is ETC…but yet we are less than 2 hours away from these destinations….

      Good point. Plus, the more people we have flying in, the cheaper it is for us to fly out.

    I guess the Indian tourists will come flooding in now just like the Chinese have after his visit there! I can’t turn a corner in Hamilton without bumping into a Chinaman!

    India & China are the only 2 countries that have not been hit by the Recession. China a population of 1,324,655,000 and India 1,139,964,932. That’s a lot of people = $$$
    Remember Bermuda, the only thing keeping you alive is tourism!
    Be happy we still have people coming to the Island no matter where it’s from.
    And the “Chinaman” comment … ahhh rude, racist and very Ignorant!
