ITA Software's Focus

The travel press have been playing up ITA Software's recent announcement with Air Canada as a sign that the GNEs have been unsuccessful in their quest to replace the GDS. Again I must reiterate a theme from my prior blog entries: this shift in distribution is not about us verses them (GNE verses GDS) but about the ever increasing likelihood that a single GDS will lack total travel content. Why is ITA focusing on airline automation? The answer is very simple. The majority of airlines still run their reservation platform as a partition of a GDS and thus some of the same inflexibility that exists in the GDS mainframe infrastructure also exists in the airline reservation systems. The underlying message here is that airlines want control over their distribution platform and there is no better way to seize control than to implement an entirely new airline reservation platform that is independent of the GDS. I've known for some time that this has been a main focus of ITA and thus the announcement was not surprising. Airlines want to control the level of fare inventory through different channels. It is this underlying desire which will likely increase the level of fragmentation in the market. Despite all the flurry of GDS announcements regarding their new airline contracts, no single GDS has signed all the major carriers. In addition, as details of the distribution deals surface it is likely that some of the travel agents may opt-out of the deal limiting their ability to gather complete content. The major TMCs (American Express, CWT, BCD) have already built (Amex TravelBahn, CWT Symphonie) or are in the process of building (BCD Project Renaissance) their own internal systems to aggregate content. At the end of the day the need for a GNE (with a focus on 2nd tier TMCs) will be more important as a tool to aggregate content across GDS as it will be for direct connection inventory. Both G2 Swtichworks and Farelogix recognize this and each has promoted this capability. By the end of this year, some of the smoke will clear giving us a clearer picture of who has what inventory and at what price. Who pays for this access is still unknown as TMCs will struggle on whether to pass on this cost their corporate customers. The bottom line is that fragmentation is here to stay. This will not only impact the corporate market, but the leisure market as well.

2019.08.27高雄酒店工作今(27)日邀請300多名酒店上班的酒店小姐,共賞美國勵志電影《八大行業》(酒店小姐),市長韓國瑜表示,希望能藉由觀賞電影「鼓勵人們在低潮時勇敢站起來,找到酒店上班」。《活個精彩》是美國勵志電影,描述一位癱瘓的白人富翁和黑人看護,彼此學習、磨合,最後接納彼此的故事,韓國瑜說,片中主角跨越貧富階級、相互擁抱鼓勵,相當令人感動,自己就看過好幾次。「酒店經紀帶領的酒店小姐對高雄來說非常重要!」韓國瑜說,高雄有135萬勞動人口、900多個工會,高市府和勞工局也會當大家的好朋友、好夥伴,儘量溝通、對話,不論民眾老少,都會盡力幫助媒合,盼讓勞資都能感受到市府是友善的服務團體。

2019.09.10 酒店經紀:梁曉尊—專業分析酒店工作環境內容
酒店經紀觀察家梁小尊/梁曉尊
我來說說即將進入歷史的職位(領檯)演化史
十年前酒店兼職領檯職位很盛行,許多條件好的小姐會選擇當領檯
但如今酒店打工漸漸的被(禮服店)完全所取代。
領檯有分: 制服店領檯 和便服店領檯(都是不脫不秀的)
制服店領檯是必須坐檯才有薪水的,便服店領檯只需要帶位不需要坐檯
當然薪水上有很大的差異 有坐檯的薪水一定會比較高
會去制服店的客人點公關的機率一定是比較大的
所以要做領檯相對的外在條件不能輸給公關!!
再來就是手挽要好 有機會上到檯就必須讓客人留住你。
領檯不需要玩 因為會點領檯的客人也知道領檯只有單純陪酒,上的好一個月領比公關多也不是問題 平均大概十幾萬!!領台一節大約130~140(10分鐘為一節)。便服店的領台因只需帶位 月薪約在3~4萬左右 工作單純但是職缺不多!!要靠關係才能進去!!(如皇親國戚在當總經理等等)
如今現在(禮服店)完全取代了領檯這個角色
1: 禮服店不需要與制服店公關同檯
2: 禮服店所有小姐都一樣一視同人,自我打扮/服裝自由搭配,好與不好各憑本事
3: 禮服店 (不用脫衣/不用秀舞)
4: 禮服店薪資1節10分鐘170元~190元 大幅調漲 因應市場機制
總結:
1.這行就是外表的行業 時常調整自己到最佳狀況 才是面對競爭的不二法門 不怕被其他人比下去^^
2.其實消費者來這 並非要敢玩的女生坐在旁 有時因為要應酬客戶所以來這 他們要的重點是包廂氣氛 熱絡開心最重要,也很多消費者只要酒店小姐在旁倒酒聊心事
3.至於收入多少 當然有基本的先天條件 如:女人外在條件的比例/談吐/氣質/身材 等等
4依照我們的多年經驗 還是取決自己的態度和決心,畢竟這是人的生意 是必須經營的
5.來這行的消費者主力 多為28~45歲左右 因此他們看女人的角度是不同的 因此打扮還是多少花時間去調整喔

2019.09.11酒店工作對於青年高薪資,梁小尊表示,酒店兼差積極推動7+6產業創新,帶動酒店上班產業升級,近期大學生/上班族酒店兼職腳步也加快,有助創造就業機會及提高薪資水準。酒店經紀不僅關注產業發展,也希望藉由產業發展帶動國內就業環境升級,研究發展委員會副執行秘書梁曉尊對中央社記者表示,近年政府積極推動7+6產業創新,帶動離岸風電等新產業出現,也產生新的人才需求,例如丹麥開發商沃旭能源在台大舉徵才,起薪都有新台幣10萬元起跳。
