Lots of news in the Transatlantic market this week, with high hopes for Summer 2022. Lawsuits, and new elite status and maskholes, too.
Sometimes travel is about new and different adventures. Sometimes it is about repeating the most boring or ridiculous habits. And, when done right, it is often a great blend of both. We close out this week’s episode with some discussion of travel souvenirs that we’re constantly collecting, or at least that we did back when we traveled more.
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!
New boarding groups, new security screening and nearly 50 new airport names in Russia. An “historic” episode comes to life this week!
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.
In a growing industry where will all the planes go? SFO, MEX, AMS and many more are full while expansion options are limited. New catering, routes, boarding rules and a presidential 747 won’t change that, but we talk about them anyways.
Getting “stuck” on a 10-abreast 777 is about the worst thing ever, right? Then again, maybe not. We’re joined this week by Michael Trager of TravelZork and talking about how some travelers actually prefer the tighter space on board.
A(nother) loyalty partnership is dying and IATA admits it is slightly less relevant in one area. But plenty of new stuff coming to keep us interested.
