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.

Aircraft engines are causing more than their share of issues these days. Failures on the ground and in the air are raising lots of questions. We’re mostly about asking them, not answering them in this episode. Plus cabin retrofits, new planes, routes and more.

Norwegian feels the heat in Vegas, Transatlantic traffic keeps growing and United’s Basic Economy is ready to fly. Plus a special mini-episode for a good cause.
