Scavenging for spare parts, profitable routes, or just good travel ideas? We’ve got it all in this week’s show.

Airlines raked in revenue in Q2, but not all of them reported a profit. And that raises a lot of bigger picture questions.

We haven’t had much to say about travel to Asia in recent months. That changes this week, as we’re joined by Michael Traeger from TravelZork to share some thoughts. A lot of thoughts, really.

Summer travel is definitely here. Good luck with that.

Sure, the conversations were great, but our plans for birthday festivities came up short.

Should you subscribe to an airline’s recurring payment offerings? Probably not. But we’re going to talk about it a bit.

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.

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.
