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.
How much would you pay to avoid a middle seat?? All four hosts are back this week and we’ve got plenty to talk about, including systems outages, mistake fares, fleet shuffles and trip planning.
The DoT backtracks on its rules, Wyndham flattens its award chart and American Airlines has a new type in its fleet. And, if you’re special enough to the airline you might gain access to a special Twitter account. Enjoy the show!
Lots of “new” news to share in this week’s episode, and that’s mostly a good thing compared to some of the episodes we’ve had which were all about downgrades. Don’t worry – there are still…
It should come as no surprise that the lead story on this week’s episode is the lead aviation-related story in the news, the crash of Asiana 214 at SFO last Saturday. We don’t dwell too…
