Two airlines disappearing in a month is bad news, but that seems to be what’s happening right now. Plus some loyalty changes in Canada and Australia and a silent ride over Oregon in a balloon.
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!
Can Rolls pull off an A380 surprise? And can codeshare flights be a little less crappy for consumers? Plus slots, Haneda changes and Hawaii!
Real-world experience with a new LCC long haul product and lots of talk about more new LCC routes. Plus China/Taiwan troubles continue and some super-cool landing gear will be flying soon.
United’s 737-10 and 787-10 combine to change the US transcon market, plus pilot housing in Hong Kong, a FAM gone wild and a potential strike in France. C’mon in!
Daytime flights from the east coast of North America to London can be a great way to help recover from jetlag. But starting on the west coast can make them a mess. Fozz and Stephan both did that last week and agree that it isn’t a great idea. Plus, a stolen Q400, terminal dumps in Germany, and finally a use for the new Berlin airport!
Don’t worry: This episode isn’t nearly as long as the flights we’re talking about. But with Perth-London service launched recently we’re all about the very, very long flights. Plus, special guest Cynthia Drescher is back to join in the conversation.
Biometrics are big these days. But what benefits do they bring to travelers? Ryanair makes a move in Austria and United makes more cuts to Polaris. Plus plenty more…
The A330neo is really real. The plane flew for the first time today in Toulouse and we’ve got a report from the festivities. Plus lots of other fun chasing various aircraft across Europe.
