Travel in India is hard. And when it goes sideways it can go really sideways. A mix of delays and cancellations this week brought that into stark relief and we’re talking about it on the show.
A new CEO in the wings and a super technical success top this week’s topics, plus Bhutan and a follow-up on what evacuation simulations are really like.
Flying on Thanksgiving Weekend can be a crazy experience. But this year it seems someone took one of those idiotic “how to get upgraded for free” stories a bit further than they probably should have.

What’s better than running in to a fan of the podcast in Singapore on a random business trip? Getting to chat with them about some cool technology that helps make travel better. Oh, and some fun dots and lines accumulated over the years.
