We tried to keep this episode relatively clean. I’m not sure it worked. With a guy smearing poop all over a plane and JFK’s blizzard meltdown there were plenty of nasty moments to review in this week’s show.
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.
Jetlagged and in a crazy hotel room is not quite the ideal trip Fozz and Stephan were hoping for on this Singapore trip but things don’t always work out the way you plan.
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.
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.
Is it possible to introduce a new product too soon? Also, survival of the fittest can be bad if you’re named Darwin. Plus big potential moves in China.
New Suites seats from Emirates and Singapore Airlines are all the rage, but do they really matter? Revenue-based loyalty, a fond farewell and a new long-haul LCC are also part of this week’s news.
Everything is changing, from routes to aircraft types to terminals to award charts. And there’s a good reason it is happening now. Plus, concerts on planes and a major airport expansion on the horizon.
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.
