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!
There’s something particularly strange about building an itinerary just to fly 4 different LCCs in 2 days in Japan. That’s what we have Seth for. Plus, a 767 renaissance, LGA shuffles, SFO air art and more.
A near miss at SFO is big news this week, as are missed earnings numbers, status matches and an AvGeek tragedy.
The Delta/Alaska Airlines divorce is final as Alaska secures its future with Virgin America. What does that mean for passengers? Plus Mexico City, Abu Dhabi and Denver all make the show this time around.
It isn’t always about the planes. Well, I mean it is, but occasionally other bits creep in to the conversation, too.
All sorts of changes in the past week or so with the Delta SkyMiles program, plus a special guest talking recent premium cabin travel on a handful of airlines.
The DoT backtracks on its rules, Wyndham flattens its award chart and American Airlines has a new type in its fleet. And, if you’re special enough to the airline you might gain access to a special Twitter account. Enjoy the show!
On this week’s show we’re talking in and about Krakow, Poland. The aviation museum is an #AvGeek mecca and the show may include a vodka tasting. Also, stories about passengers flying without pants.
Live from World Travel Market in London the crew is talking about Etihad’s The Residence, the new AAdvantage program for 2015 and a hotel loyalty program which doesn’t really focus on loyalty, at least not the way we’ve typically looked at it.
Added bonus: We recorded whilst under the departure path for London’s City Airport so every now and then you get to hear a plane taking off in the background.
Things don’t always go as planned. We usually recover better than others, even if there is a bit of chaos involved. Still, it is not too common that a simple round-trip requires 10-ish different bookings to make it happen. Oopsie.
