DLD 76: To Bump or Not to Bump?

March 5, 2015

Yes, there really are situations where not taking the bump is the smart play. Or at least that’s what Seth was thinking right up until he actually took the alternate flights coming home from Montreal last week. We spend a bit of time talking about how that all came to pass.


Also on this week’s episode:

  • The DoT sided with United Airlines on the Danish Krone conversion mistake. With some interesting logic. What does that mean for future purchases and rules enforcement?
  • Uber & SPG are partners now, and it is a solid relationship. Lots of points to be had if you play that game.
  • LaGuardia might be dropping its perimeter rule and opening up to longer flights. Who wins and who loses there?
  • The Bombardier CS300 made its maiden flight last week. Seth was there for the party.
  • Anyone been to Angkor Wat? How long is enough time there? How long is too much?? None of us have been and we’re curious. Leave a comment or tweet @ us and share your thoughts.

Enjoy the show!

  1. Angkor Wat is amazing – I spent 3 days in Siem Reap but it can be a bit overwhelming if you see temples all the time. You can actually split it up a bit: go to a temple one day then rest in the pool the next, then go back to the temples another day. It’s massive and it’s so hot (weather wise)!

    A fun dialog and interesting subjects, but… It is a matter of time. Truth is that most adults can read the written word about 3x – 4x faster than than most people can speak clearly. While there is some entertainment value in a live exchange, I’m looking for content. Best wishes… and yes, it did sound like lots of fun…

  3. I’ve been to Siem Reap 4 times. Yes yes yes GO! Oh and Pub Street at night rocks!

  4. I was at Angkor Wat this January, the height of tourist season. On its’ own, it’s a fascinating temple complex spread over several square miles. You’ll need a taxi driver (or tuk tuk) and / or guide. They could be different people, just be clear what your signing up for. Some guides are not that great, barely speak English, and just consider themselves to be photographers. Taxi drivers will drop you at each temple but will sleep in the car until you return. Check the internet for recommendations. Most drivers take the standard 6 hour circuit through the complex. Try to go early in the morning to beat the crowds – and I do mean crowds! Bus loads of camera & selfie stick wielding tourists from Asia climb every temple staircase. Still a fascinating place. I spent a day and was “templed out” at the end. Plenty of other places to see and things to do – join some small group hikes and bike rides. On my bike tour I stopped at a very small temple with some local village kids playing in the ruins. Took their photos and showed them videos on my iphone. Their spontaneous joy during that hour was almost better than the day at Angkor.
