BTN wishes to make an apology.
Due to events at Lord's late on the afternoon of Sunday 14 July, a time normally spent completing the next day’s (Monday’s) Business Travel News, editor-in-chief Malcolm Ginsberg became rather excited and muddled regarding the various Apollo 11 offerings. That issue of BTN was wrong and has since been corrected.
For the record, this is what is currently available, although for some enough is enough.
But remember the astronauts returned to earth 50 years ago tomorrow on Thursday, 24 July 1969. There’s bound to be more to follow. But not in BTN.
