Tourists are shrugging off terror concerns to check-in at InterContinental Hotels Group’s London and European sites, the owner of the Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza brands said on Friday as it posted a sales rise. The FTSE 100 firm said “markets previously impacted by terrorist attacks grew strongly” in the third quarter. Finance boss Paul Edgecliffe-Johnson said: “Threats are a way of life unfortunately.
Luxury hotel The Ritz has emerged as one of the winners from a £30 million spending spree by tourists in town this month to celebrate China’s Golden Week holiday. Visitors from the Far East were enticed by the weak pound, and flocked to London between October 1 and 8. That week celebrated the founding of the People’s Republic of China. Ciaran Fahy, chief executive of The Ritz, told the Standard that revenues at the Piccadilly hotel surged in the period, up 4.6% from golden week in 2016.
The airline market has been clouded by turmoil this month — Monarch Airlines collapsing and Ryanair grappling with a pilots shortage — but the City shrugged off the turmoil to fly with easyJet on Friday. The low-cost carrier, led by Carolyn McCall, was rumoured to be revealing a deal to purchase up to 25 A320 aircraft from insolvent German firm Air Berlin, sending shares to a higher altitude. EasyJet said in September that it had bid for parts of Air Berlin’s short-haul business.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
