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.
An aviation podcast talking about driving? Sometimes that’s the only viable option, and it is strange. Plus, so are we.
As has happened several times since the pandemic began airlines are shaking up their route maps with idea so crazy they just might work. So which new destinations will work this time around??
Collapsing joint ventures, splitting London, and plenty of bubbles to burst in this week’s show.
The infamous Cranky Flier joins us this week to talk route planning, biz travel’s collapse, and some fun with airport ratings.

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.
