We faced a couple mechanicals getting this week’s episode recorded, but are willing to admit that truth, rather than blaming weather, unlike some airlines.
Also in this episode:
- British Airways drama, including:
- The A380 is coming back, as are a bunch of US routes
- Gatwick short-haul might not really be dead after all
- A very bad day trying to get to Hong Kong
- Southwest Airlines‘ operational meltdown last weekend
- A big biometrics push by AirAsia
- Tata buying Air India, and the mess that it includes
- New vaccinated travel lanes added for Singapore, and a demand spike that crashed the company website
- Spirit Airlines launching service in Miami, FL and Manchester, NH last week
- Old UA 747 moving to a Seattle mixed use building
- Air Belgium gets its first new plane, an A330neo that is part of a significant fleet refresh
For our Patreon subscribers we have bonus content, including:
- AmEx closing a bunch of Membership Rewards accounts
- United Airlines‘ December schedule includes an interesting collection of point to point routes
- The new Dulles Polaris lounge is finally opening later this month, and some others should be reopening soon
And plenty more. Enjoy the show!
