A government shutdown and slowing airline expansion both take their toll. Plus an airline brand dies. But mistake fares live on!
New boarding groups, new security screening and nearly 50 new airport names in Russia. An “historic” episode comes to life this week!
Trip reports from near and far, more MAX and the neo is finally delivered!
Fly for the food, stay for the company, collect (or burn) some points along the way. Just a quick weekend trip to Hong Kong and Beijing from the USA, because we can.
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.
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!
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. Fozz and Stephan both did that last week and agree that it isn’t a great idea. Plus, a stolen Q400, terminal dumps in Germany, and finally a use for the new Berlin airport!
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.
Fozz almost got stuck in Berlin this weekend, but quick thinking saved the day. Also, errors bring lawsuits, The ME3 are all sorts of crazy and purple is coming to Delta’s uniforms.
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.
