We faced a couple mechanicals getting this week’s episode recorded, but are willing to admit that truth, rather than blaming weather, unlike some airlines.

An irrational amount of discussion about connecting flights takes over this episode. But, in our defense, one of you asked about it.

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.

Thousands of planes parked, some permanently, make for stunning images. But it comes at a cost, with jobs lost and an economic hit that is hard to measure so far.
