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.
AIX is the place to be for a look at what the future of air travel will be. This year’s show included bunk beds (even in economy!) plus a self-service cookie warmer. And lots of other things way more likely to fly at some point.
Don’t worry: This episode isn’t nearly as long as the flights we’re talking about. But with Perth-London service launched recently we’re all about the very, very long flights. Plus, special guest Cynthia Drescher is back to join in the conversation.
Every now and then you’ll find us together somewhere around the world. This trip ended up in Sofia, Vaduz, Stuttgart and Munich because we suffered from indecision paralysis. Some fun stories along the way, though.
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.
