United Airlines trimmed its assets this quarter owing to the new open skies arrangement with Brazil. Tehran is getting trimmed this summer as well, while . Plus nuts are getting trimmed from Southwest and lots more in this week’s episode!
Manmade islands are all the rage in the Gulf region, but this one is a political chasm, not a luxury residence play. Plus Norwegian shifts some service and Stroopwafels are taking a break at United.
If you’re going to sneak into Canada we suggest a Trojan Zamboni as the obvious choice for transportation. And apparently Quebec is the best place to make your move.
A great credit card debate to kick things off this week. Which is terribly unusual, but also pretty interesting. Also, the US3 v ME3 might finally be settled, with a bit of Mexican collateral damage. And do people really care that much about tomato juice 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.
Seth is in Hamburg, but Fozz and Stephan are debating what is the “east Bay” and what is the “south Bay”. Riveting stuff. Chime in with your opinion.
Biometrics are big these days. But what benefits do they bring to travelers? Ryanair makes a move in Austria and United makes more cuts to Polaris. Plus plenty more…

A blown tire in Newark caused rolling delays and some pretty poor customer service in Portland. Delta struck a nerve in Georgia that could hurt it on the fuel tax front. Also, some talk about battery fires and lots of other news this week.
No, that’s not really what ETOPS stands for but with the rash of engine issues in the past week we couldn’t help talking about them. Etihad cuts, Air India’s sale plans and American Airlines’ employees have a lot to say to their company. Come listen!
