Would the NYC aviation world be better served if LaGuardia shut down? For some reason that came up in this week’s show.
No, really, some love for the old LaGuardia leads off this week’s show. Plus some new plane types, strike compensation and a mistake connecting in Cairo.
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.
The A380 gets a new order and Airbus gets some additional action in China. Also, new rules for service animals, new liveries, new routes and new uniforms.
There’s something particularly strange about building an itinerary just to fly 4 different LCCs in 2 days in Japan. That’s what we have Seth for. Plus, a 767 renaissance, LGA shuffles, SFO air art and more.
No electronics on airplanes, Growth in Seattle and Cuts at LaGuardia. Plus more details on the LAX shuffle coming this May. Hooray!
The DoT stops being quite so consumer-friendly while Bombardier has the first flight of a plane it claims is much more passenger-friendly. SPG & Uber team up and LaGuardia might go long(ish)-haul. Plus some thoughts on taking a bump.
