Plus Stephan and Fozz talking some good stuff including:

  • American and US Airways now have a single operating certificate. That doesn’t mean much to most of us.
  • United is playing dirty with fares, upgrades and faux charges
  • Thai safety standards are under scrutiny. And probably for good reason.
  • A review of Korean Air first class which is not particularly happy
  • A rant about AirBnB because, well, it isn’t particularly user-friendly when things go pear shaped.

Enjoy the show!

Also, sorry for the screw up on the date in the intro. That’s Stephan’s fault.
