Clicking the like button costs one Marriott employee his job. American is crying foul in Chicago and Delta’s efforts to remain neutral aren’t working out so well. Plus, an awful way to motivate employees comes to United Airlines!
A blown tire in Newark caused rolling delays and some pretty poor customer service in Portland. Delta struck a nerve in Georgia that could hurt it on the fuel tax front. Also, some talk about battery fires and lots of other news this week.
No, that’s not really what ETOPS stands for but with the rash of engine issues in the past week we couldn’t help talking about them. Etihad cuts, Air India’s sale plans and American Airlines’ employees have a lot to say to their company. Come listen!
The A380 gets a new order and Airbus gets some additional action in China. Also, new rules for service animals, new liveries, new routes and new uniforms.
Fire in Atlanta, new flights to Tahiti and a hundred new A321s for Delta. Plus LCC flat beds and A310s disappearing. C’mon in for a(nother) fun episode!
Computers are creating challenges for airlines and hotels these days. But it still isn’t a “glitch.” Another airline is disappearing and the CSeries may be flying further south than previously expected.
A busted trip to Taiwan, busted Rolls Royce engines and an attempt to bust Boeing’s bullying ways are on the agenda this episode. Plus Hawaii and the A330neo (again).
Lots of routes dropping in the coming months, thanks to crew shortages, shifting travel demand and maybe even fleet challenges. Another “mistake” fare scuttled and some talk about cabin density and how that translates to profits, too.
How do you stay healthy on the road? You probably don’t, and that makes you a slacker. But we’ve got a guest this week talking about how to be better about such things. C’mon in!
Come fly across the Atlantic with the crew on an LCC (in Y!) and talk about United’s newly revised A350 order, the evolution of Basic Economy and many US airlines scaling back revenue hopes for 2017.
