Sometimes travel is about new and different adventures. Sometimes it is about repeating the most boring or ridiculous habits. And, when done right, it is often a great blend of both. We close out this week’s episode with some discussion of travel souvenirs that we’re constantly collecting, or at least that we did back when we traveled more.
More openings than closings should be good news for lots in the industry, though things remain precarious on many fronts.
The Las Vegas strip is open again. Or at least open-ish. It is a far cry from the typical levels of action and activity, but things are starting to come back and it is very different. But also very the same. Here’s a first-hand report from the Strip on opening weekend.
What does it mean when airlines behave unfairly towards customers? And why should we all be worried that they’re about to be a lot more deceptive? Listen in to find out.
Live from London, we’ve got a special guest smart enough not to talk about things where he doesn’t know what’s going on. It was a very strange conversation on many levels.
Two airlines disappearing in a month is bad news, but that seems to be what’s happening right now. Plus some loyalty changes in Canada and Australia and a silent ride over Oregon in a balloon.
Cutting money-losing programs makes sense in many cases. Selling off a profitable segment of the business is less normal. But here we are.
Can Rolls pull off an A380 surprise? And can codeshare flights be a little less crappy for consumers? Plus slots, Haneda changes and Hawaii!
Engines, engines, everywhere! Even more of which are now broken. Plus many inaugurals and maybe your biometric security data will be sold to an airline or airport soon.
Daytime flights from the east coast of North America to London can be a great way to help recover from jetlag. But starting on the west coast can make them a mess. Fozz and Stephan both did that last week and agree that it isn’t a great idea. Plus, a stolen Q400, terminal dumps in Germany, and finally a use for the new Berlin airport!
