Lots of 737 shop talk in this episode, recorded on Sunday evening after the ET302 crash outside Addis Ababa. Our condolences to all those affected by the tragedy.
New boarding groups, new security screening and nearly 50 new airport names in Russia. An “historic” episode comes to life this week!
Trip reports from near and far, more MAX and the neo is finally delivered!
Engines, engines, everywhere! Even more of which are now broken. Plus many inaugurals and maybe your biometric security data will be sold to an airline or airport soon.
Real-world experience with a new LCC long haul product and lots of talk about more new LCC routes. Plus China/Taiwan troubles continue and some super-cool landing gear will be flying soon.
United’s 737-10 and 787-10 combine to change the US transcon market, plus pilot housing in Hong Kong, a FAM gone wild and a potential strike in France. C’mon in!
Last week we talked a LOT about engines, mostly proving we have very little knowledge on the topic. This week we’re making up for that by bringing in an expert who might know a little too much on the topic, at least assuming you do want to still fly more.
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.
Lots of routes dropping in the coming months, thanks to crew shortages, shifting travel demand and maybe even fleet challenges. Another “mistake” fare scuttled and some talk about cabin density and how that translates to profits, too.
Does competition help or hurt product quality? Plus new airlines and new airplanes and new award charts all starting to show up.
