How does just one out of service plane cause so much trouble for a major airline?? But it worked mostly in our favor, so no complaints this time around.
We lost last week’s episode, but came back strong this time around with planes big and small crossing oceans and some fun new routes and money for US startups.
More airline partnership and a key route trimmed. Plus, cool new trains and airlines and loyalty plays.
They might all be terrible ideas, but we’re still going to talk about them and figure out if any of it makes sense.
Opening back up is great, but the inconsistencies are hard to handle. So are the lines.
Many things are happening in the aviation and travel world. We’re talking about some of them in this week’s show.
Maybe we went a little too far off the rails talking about privacy and ad tech and where they intersect. Including on board JetBlue’s newest A220 fleet.
Can you copyright an airline route network? Asking for a friend north of the border. Plus bailouts and refunds and new routes galore!
A mistake fare brought back some excitement we haven’t felt in a long time, even if it eventually cancelled. Plus Iceland to Antarctica and much more!
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.
