Cutting money-losing programs makes sense in many cases. Selling off a profitable segment of the business is less normal. But here we are.
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!
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.
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!
There’s something particularly strange about building an itinerary just to fly 4 different LCCs in 2 days in Japan. That’s what we have Seth for. Plus, a 767 renaissance, LGA shuffles, SFO air art and more.
A near miss at SFO is big news this week, as are missed earnings numbers, status matches and an AvGeek tragedy.
The Delta/Alaska Airlines divorce is final as Alaska secures its future with Virgin America. What does that mean for passengers? Plus Mexico City, Abu Dhabi and Denver all make the show this time around.
It isn’t always about the planes. Well, I mean it is, but occasionally other bits creep in to the conversation, too.
All sorts of changes in the past week or so with the Delta SkyMiles program, plus a special guest talking recent premium cabin travel on a handful of airlines.
