So, yeah, we’ve got an in-person account of World Cup excitement in Brazil on this week’s episode. Rolo was on the scene and has some great stories to share about his experiences there.
Also discussed this time around:
- United adopts the revenue-based earning plan, same as Delta. Turns out that not all our crew loses, and what of the credit cards??
- United is launching service between Houston and Santiago, Chile on December 7. The DLD crew (most of us; the Argentinian might be boycotting) is booked on the inaugural, assuming we wake up from the party the night before in time to catch the flight.
- American is cutting the number of business class seats on their 777s. Just how green is that grass??
- Seth got stuck in Chicago waiting out a thunder storm so he missed the show. That’s too bad given recent visits to the IATA meeting in Qatar, JetBlue Mint inaugural flight, #InsideDelta and Gogo. Apparently that’s going to make for quite the monologue on the next episode.
And the audio quality is a little lower than normal on this one; sorry about that. We had some technical issues with the recording.
