'Single supplement' dropped for some safaris

Several weeks ago, I wrote about the decision of Lion World Travel to charge only $2,199 per person for a one-week Kenya safari leaving from Washington, D.C. (including airfare) throughout March and the first week of April, and $2,299 for the same trip in the latter part of April, the month of May and many dates thereafter. It was obvious to me — as I pointed out in an effort at sarcasm — that the unusual price (several hundreds of dollars less than the competition) was brought about by using Ethiopian Airlines as the carrier from Washington, D.C. I was immediately besieged by numerous angry e-mails from readers who claimed that Ethiopian Airlines is a fine and reliable carrier, and I subsequently issued a full-throated apology.
