A flurry of buzzy briefs:
1. Taiwan's Tourism Bureau is running a huge competition for travel writers. It's a complicated and multistage affair, which involves setting up an itinerary, following it, writing about it—and then, if you're lucky, winning a massive NT$1 million to spend a month touring the island. The deadline for applications is June 30.
2. Last week Porter announced a new Toronto City Centre-Boston route, which kicks off September 14.
3. Airscoop is reporting some bad news for SkyEurope. The plucky Slovak low-cost carrier had a plane seized on Monday at Paris Orly, after failing to pay fees to the airport. The following day, officials at Bucharest Airport followed suit, claiming that SkyEurope owes the airport €529,000. See the background story in the Slovak Spectator.
