Over The Top Airline Seats (#205H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

The airline industry is one of the most competitive in the world, with carriers scrambling to pack more and more bodies on board. But, there's another way airlines can turn a profit: charge more for the seats. CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg tells us about some luxurious, over-the-top airline seats. Plus, if you think Hilton Head, South Carolina offers nothing but golf and time shares, you might want to think again. Peter shows us the hidden gems of the low country. Here's a hint: hope you like shrimp! And, it's a vacation of volunteer tourism unlike any other: a special falcon sanctuary in Abu Dhabi.

Constructing A Mega Resort (#207H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Modern resorts are getting bigger and even more impressive. But did you ever think of how difficult it is to build one of them? CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg goes behind the scenes and shows us the construction of one of the biggest resorts of all-time: the much-delayed Baha Mar, in the Bahamas. Plus, a lot of hotels will claim they are historic, simply because they're old. And then there's the case of the legendary Raffles Hotel in Singapore. Peter reveals its rich and colorful history. And, correspondent Tracy Gallagher takes us to Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, which is one of the most important beaches in the world for loggerhead turtle nesting.

The Invisibles (#206H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

Do you ever wonder who really runs the travel industry? We're not talking about the corporate CEO's or hotel general managers, but rather, the people who load your bags on the plane or bring the towels to your room. CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg calls them "The Invisibles", and explains how they make a critical difference every time you travel. Plus, it's not just about cheese! Peter takes us to tribal Indian nations: a hidden gem of Wisconsin. And, while the Corinthia London is a fairly new hotel in New York City, correspondent Tracy Gallagher reveals that it has quite a compelling history.

Egypt Tourism (#208H) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG (Secondary audio: DVI)

In 2011, there was the Arab Spring, a revolution in Egypt that was quickly followed by the Arab Winter. Travel and tourism flatlined in the country. CBS News Travel Editor Peter Greenberg explains how this impacted Egypt and, more importantly, how does that impact you as travelers? Plus, Peter reveals his hidden gems of Baja California, with an insider's look at experiences in Mexico no one knows about, from wine, to cheese, to horseback riding. None of which is in the brochures! And, Travel Weekly Editor In Chief Arnie Weissman introduces us to some alternatives to staying in hotels. They include parked jumbo jets converted into overnight accommodations, abandoned missile silos, and a building crane suspended 500 feet in the air!
