Welcome to 2018, where hotel loyalty programs are updating their rules and one is starting over completely. A late 2017 bankruptcy is finally getting resolved and new seats are coming (yes, slimlines) to a major European airline. And somehow we’re still relatively optimistic about the whole thing.
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!
After an aborted effort a few weeks back hosts Stephan and Fozz finally made it to Taiwan. These are their jetlag-influenced ramblings.
Is Iceland really that popular in Texas? More premium routes and no more A380s are also part of the discussions.
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).
The A330neo is really real. The plane flew for the first time today in Toulouse and we’ve got a report from the festivities. Plus lots of other fun chasing various aircraft across Europe.
Hey, DLD listeners: We need your help, far more than just putting up with our regular ramblings (of which there are plenty in this episode).
Southwest has a MAX 8, PIT has more visitors and soon you’ll be able to spend longer than ever inside a plane. But is any of that good news??
A quick bonus hit this week, covering American’s new routes to Europe and United’s new plan to keep flight attendants happy.
It is important to be comfortable while flying. But maybe getting naked it taking things a bit too far. Fights in the terminal and a nation collapsing are also on this week’s agenda.
