Loyalty isn’t just about hotels and airlines. Casinos run some of the largest and must lucrative programs out there. And, not surprisingly, there are people who like to play that game just like those who play the travel game.
What’s next for the A380? Delays in opening at Dubai and tracking new jets, too.
There is something incredible about watching a rocket lift off headed towards space. Seth was in Cape Canaveral to see the most Recent SpaceX launch and is joined by special guest Howard Slutsken to talk about the experience.
Are more electronics bans coming? And why can the general public now buy in on a crazy charter route. More growth at SFO, a whoopsie on Air Force 1 and a Gogo giveaway, too!
United made a mistake at JFK, American makes mistAAkes in ticket changes and Bangkok made a “miSteak” when it comes to street food. Plenty of other idiocy, too.
Charter cuts, not Leaving Las Vegas, seat poachers popped and a black hole over North Korea. Plus thoughts on where to go for Holy Week next year.
Lots of stuff happening in Asia, from partnerships to award travel to Singapore hawker stalls. Polaris takes a (bigger) delay and a Westin has math troubles.
Smaller US cities are seeing a resurgence in air service from the major carriers. Plus, Stephan’s favorite restaurant in Berlin is now also Seth’s favorite.
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.
We’ve got @RapidTravelChai on as a special guest this episode and we’re talking all about China, heavily focused on the Fujian province and some excellent adventures available there.
