The infamous Cranky Flier joins us this week to talk route planning, biz travel’s collapse, and some fun with airport ratings.
Cover your face and fly with free insurance and maybe even score an upgrade or just get a bunch of seats for yourself. But we spread all that out into a reasonable conversation, not just a tease.
Hot weather across the country and some hot topics for discussion on this week’s show, like new partnerships, furloughs and retirements.
When an airline says it is concerned about passenger safety and then increases the number of seats sold that can be hard to reconcile. But at least they’re leaving it members of their cabin crew to keep posting anti-mask FUD on social media, right??
As borders start to reopen the requirements for entry to some countries can be onerous. Or completely reasonable. But the inconsistencies make it really challenging for travelers to plan.
Is it time for airports to join the consolidation game? We talk a lot about airlines and mergers (and bankruptcies these days) but airports might also benefit from joining forces.
An island hopper that only takes 8 hours and does not risk military base diversions has us pretty excited. Just need it to actually operate now.
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!
Another year of APEX EXPO is in the books and, as always, lots of cool developments. Plus a few really bad ones. Listen now to learn what you’ll be flying soon.
