The US government shutdown finally took its toll on a pair of inaugurals, and a few others are giving up, too.
A smooth connection in Seattle was unexpected. Smoothing connections in Africa might be useful. And Brexit likely means rough connections for millions. Hooray!
Daytime flights from the east coast of North America to London can be a great way to help recover from jetlag. But starting on the west coast can make them a mess.

If you’re going to sneak into Canada we suggest a Trojan Zamboni as the obvious choice for transportation. And apparently Quebec is the best place to make your move.
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.
