Halfway through a long trip and still suffering from jetlag, but there’s news to consider and punditry to ponder, so here we go…
Thought on airline pyjamas? Yeah, we’ve got some of those. And lots of other ideas, too…
So much noise for a handful of new routes. Is it really worth the hype? Plus an airline blocks customers and a hotel sues its parent brand.
New Dreamliner configurations, a new deal for collusion and an awesome 747 fly-by, all part of the excitement in this week’s show!
Does it feel like this trio of topics come up too often? Maybe if they weren’t always doing silly things we’d venture out more. But not this week. Because American, United and Rolls-Royce continue to dig themselves into holes. Ouch.
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.
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.
What’s next for the A380? Delays in opening at Dubai and tracking new jets, too.
Lots of topics this week but no title for the show…hopefully you’re willing to listen anyways.
ANA’s 787s are up for a massive engine replacement project, making the aircraft type the “dot” in this week’s episode. And lots of other airlines might be affected by similar issues. New 787 routes and significant shifts coming to American’s TATL route map in the coming months.
