Some terribly dorky jokes get us started this week, but eventually we manage to transition to terribly dorky conversations about airplanes, so that’s mostly a win.
No squirrels were harmed in the making of this episode. And we cannot explain why that is even remotely relevant. But here we are anyways.
A bit of a challenge this week to get past the very real suffering of war and have a conversation about what it means in the context of aviation. But we’re trying.
Sure, we’re not really traveling long-haul for leisure right now. But some people are. We had long time friend of the show Han on to talk about a couple recent trips.
Sometimes the best plan when a trip gets complicated is to just walk away. Or at least strongly consider the possibility in the face of ever changing travel restrictions.
A new variant of concern doesn’t have us too concerned. At least not yet. Plus greenwashing, hub bluffs, and pilot retirements.
American’s turn for a meltdown, plus slower recoveries, a big Heathrow boost, and planes shifting national registries for some reason.
The brand new Breeze A220 is top of mind this week, as we have a crew chatting just hours after the unveiling. Plus AAdvantage and Bonvoy news that might matter to you.
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.
An irrational amount of discussion about connecting flights takes over this episode. But, in our defense, one of you asked about it.
