Dining options at Houston’s George Bush Intercontinental Airport are about to get a lot more exciting. United Airlines and airport experience building firm OTG announced plans to bring a diverse set of food vendors to the airline’s complement of terminals.

The airport is scheduled for a makeover of its C-North Terminal and a full slate of new restaurants at its C-South and E terminals. OTG is also installing around 8,000 iPads in the three terminals for check-out speed and efficiency.

Gavin Molloy, vice president of corporate real estate, United Airlines, said, “We continue to improve the customer experience for travelers at our Houston hub. The additional dining and retail options planned for Terminals C-South and E, combined with the offerings we’ll feature in our brand-new Terminal C-North, will provide an unparalleled ‘taste of Houston’ for local travelers and visitors alike.”

Among the most promising options are a Magnolia Meatball Shop (serving comfort food), Agave (Tex-Mex), H-Burger (locally-sourced burger options); Q (barbecue); and Beerhive (for microbrews)

Rick Blatstein, chief executive officer, OTG, said, “Our team at OTG has been working hard for months to bring Houston a re-imagined terminal experience at Bush Intercontinental. With the announcement of these expanded concepts, we are one step closer to making that a reality for Houston’s travelers.”

Singapore Forges Ahead with Investment in Bold Innovations

For all its cosmopolitan trappings, Singapore remains, at heart, a tropical island. The city planners determinedly preserved gennery and the high groves of concrete and glass, and for a complete escape from urban bustle there still remain patches of the jungle and mangroves that covered the island when Sir Stamford Raffles first established a trading outpost here in 1819.

Discover the Joys of Small-Ship Sailing

In this era of 6,500-passenger mega-ships, any cruise vessel conveying fewer than a thousand voyagers is considered a small ship, including high-end luxury liners, deluxe expedition ships and the world’s riverboats. The focus on many small ships is the destination rather than the conveyance, the expert chat rather than the Broadway show, the watersport rather than the casino, the scenery and culture rather than the full-service spa and specialty restaurant. Passengers make a travel style choice, forgoing the options and pleasures of a resort-sized vessel for the deeper, more immersive experience of a yacht-scaled ship.
