Cutting money-losing programs makes sense in many cases. Selling off a profitable segment of the business is less normal. But here we are.
As award charts disappear is loyalty following them out the door? Plus a new A350 cabin and more MAX grounding discussions.
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.
