United teams up with Clear, Southwest leaves Newark and CapOne has a data breach. Plus, a new(ish) airline flying a pretty old little Fokker.
Speed records and airport news dominate this week’s show. Some sketchy funding stories, too!
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!
United has new elite rules, Marriott still struggles, new A380 engines are stalled and Primera is dead. Rough week, huh?
No, that’s not really what ETOPS stands for but with the rash of engine issues in the past week we couldn’t help talking about them. Etihad cuts, Air India’s sale plans and American Airlines’ employees have a lot to say to their company. Come listen!
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.
Come fly across the Atlantic with the crew on an LCC (in Y!) and talk about United’s newly revised A350 order, the evolution of Basic Economy and many US airlines scaling back revenue hopes for 2017.
Does competition help or hurt product quality? Plus new airlines and new airplanes and new award charts all starting to show up.
Lots of topics this week but no title for the show…hopefully you’re willing to listen anyways.
United made a mistake at JFK, American makes mistAAkes in ticket changes and Bangkok made a “miSteak” when it comes to street food. Plenty of other idiocy, too.
