Major cuts extending beyond China and beyond planes. Plus old enemies are friends and another dream of beds in long-haul economy…C’mon in!
Yes, “bleisure” is an annoying word. But it just might be a better way to travel. With a couple different trips to Prague recently the team is ready to debate its value.
Speed records and airport news dominate this week’s show. Some sketchy funding stories, too!
In a growing industry where will all the planes go? SFO, MEX, AMS and many more are full while expansion options are limited. New catering, routes, boarding rules and a presidential 747 won’t change that, but we talk about them anyways.
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.
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.
We tried to keep this episode relatively clean. I’m not sure it worked. With a guy smearing poop all over a plane and JFK’s blizzard meltdown there were plenty of nasty moments to review in this week’s show.
Welcome to 2018, where hotel loyalty programs are updating their rules and one is starting over completely. A late 2017 bankruptcy is finally getting resolved and new seats are coming (yes, slimlines) to a major European airline. And somehow we’re still relatively optimistic about the whole thing.
More LCCs across the Pond and A321neos to Hawaii. Some airplanes cannot count and some airlines cannot get enough pilots. Plus lots more!
Europe’s aviation market is a bit of a mess, with Monarch on the cusp of closing and Air Berlin making major changes. SPG & Marriott are merged and Fozz books a flight on air!
