Halfway through a long trip and still suffering from jetlag, but there’s news to consider and punditry to ponder, so here we go…
Scavenging for spare parts, profitable routes, or just good travel ideas? We’ve got it all in this week’s show.
More leisure travelers than expected, plus some gardening tips. Oh, and lots of airline news, too.
London, eventually. Maybe a couple bankruptcies. And a plane that almost tumbled on take-off. Grab on for a fun set of stories this week!
Trip reports from near and far, more MAX and the neo is finally delivered!
A smooth connection in Seattle was unexpected. Smoothing connections in Africa might be useful. And Brexit likely means rough connections for millions. Hooray!
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.
A blown tire in Newark caused rolling delays and some pretty poor customer service in Portland. Delta struck a nerve in Georgia that could hurt it on the fuel tax front. Also, some talk about battery fires and lots of other news this week.
The A330neo is really real. The plane flew for the first time today in Toulouse and we’ve got a report from the festivities. Plus lots of other fun chasing various aircraft across Europe.
Hey, DLD listeners: We need your help, far more than just putting up with our regular ramblings (of which there are plenty in this episode).
