Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Back to the original point, what do the really rich and their travels have to do with the commodification of travel?

I never talked about comodification of travel but that of time. High Speed Trains, the development of planes, are symptoms of that. And indeed it is interesting to note that those who still own their time don't feel the need to travel - as opposed to be transported.
