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!
As award charts disappear is loyalty following them out the door? Plus a new A350 cabin and more MAX grounding discussions.
Can Jet and WOW overcome massive financial challenges to stay in business? Will the MAX issues hurt Boeing long-term? And some Amsterdam news, too.
Bad things come in threes, right? Hopefully that’s the case here as Boeing wraps a pretty bad run of incidents with its aircraft. Plus, a 3 day delay and a seized plane!
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.
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.
Naming a stadium costs big bucks. And when the name is poorly phrased that can be all sorts of awkward as United is discovering. Niki gets another new owner, Bombardier won and Qatar faces up to some challenges.
There’s something particularly strange about building an itinerary just to fly 4 different LCCs in 2 days in Japan. That’s what we have Seth for. Plus, a 767 renaissance, LGA shuffles, SFO air art and more.
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).
