United has new elite rules, Marriott still struggles, new A380 engines are stalled and Primera is dead. Rough week, huh?
Will a Middle East merger happen? Did a plane run very low on fuel? Is the new UA boarding process a joke? Lots of answers in this week’s show!
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!
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.
The A380 gets a new order and Airbus gets some additional action in China. Also, new rules for service animals, new liveries, new routes and new uniforms.
Is Iceland really that popular in Texas? More premium routes and no more A380s are also part of the discussions.
New Suites seats from Emirates and Singapore Airlines are all the rage, but do they really matter? Revenue-based loyalty, a fond farewell and a new long-haul LCC are also part of this week’s news.
Maybe everyone isn’t crazy and they just have really bad ideas, right? A couple bankruptcies and a couple investments, plus a pair of new routes that just might work. C’mon in.
United made a mistake at JFK, American makes mistAAkes in ticket changes and Bangkok made a “miSteak” when it comes to street food. Plenty of other idiocy, too.
