Flying on Thanksgiving Weekend can be a crazy experience. But this year it seems someone took one of those idiotic “how to get upgraded for free” stories a bit further than they probably should have.
A bad week for many United Airlines frequent flyer members and probably an even worse week for Boeing lead this weeks show. Plus SIM cards and South America and swanky Starlux.
New planes (787-10s), new union lawsuits (AA & DL) and new access to faster immigration lines (UK eGates) are just some of the exciting news in this week’s show.
London, eventually. Maybe a couple bankruptcies. And a plane that almost tumbled on take-off. Grab on for a fun set of stories this week!
Can Rolls pull off an A380 surprise? And can codeshare flights be a little less crappy for consumers? Plus slots, Haneda changes and Hawaii!
A government shutdown and slowing airline expansion both take their toll. Plus an airline brand dies. But mistake fares live on!
Trip reports from near and far, more MAX and the neo is finally delivered!
A smooth connection in Seattle was unexpected. Smoothing connections in Africa might be useful. And Brexit likely means rough connections for millions. Hooray!
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.
Last week we talked a LOT about engines, mostly proving we have very little knowledge on the topic. This week we’re making up for that by bringing in an expert who might know a little too much on the topic, at least assuming you do want to still fly more.
