A great credit card debate to kick things off this week. Which is terribly unusual, but also pretty interesting. Also, the US3 v ME3 might finally be settled, with a bit of Mexican collateral damage. And do people really care that much about tomato juice on board!?!
Aircraft engines are causing more than their share of issues these days. Failures on the ground and in the air are raising lots of questions. We’re mostly about asking them, not answering them in this episode. Plus cabin retrofits, new planes, routes and more.
Biometrics are big these days. But what benefits do they bring to travelers? Ryanair makes a move in Austria and United makes more cuts to Polaris. Plus plenty more…
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.
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.
A(nother) loyalty partnership is dying and IATA admits it is slightly less relevant in one area. But plenty of new stuff coming to keep us interested.
Does competition help or hurt product quality? Plus new airlines and new airplanes and new award charts all starting to show up.
Norwegian might need to pop a Cork, Frontier looks to cash out, the CS300 is sexy and some discussion on why we travel so much.
United has a brand new 77W with fancy new seats in business class. It also is adding a bunch of routes with CRJ-200s on domestic flights. Economy class travel is not so great.
