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!
Naming a stadium costs big bucks. And when the name is poorly phrased that can be all sorts of awkward as United is discovering. Niki gets another new owner, Bombardier won and Qatar faces up to some challenges.
An airplane leaving the runway unexpectedly is never a good thing. Fortunately no injuries in this crazy story out of Turkey. Also, Alitalia is still looking for a savior and Azores Airlines now is as well. New uniforms, a giant cargo flight and more!
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.
Welcome to 2018, where hotel loyalty programs are updating their rules and one is starting over completely. A late 2017 bankruptcy is finally getting resolved and new seats are coming (yes, slimlines) to a major European airline. And somehow we’re still relatively optimistic about the whole thing.
Fire in Atlanta, new flights to Tahiti and a hundred new A321s for Delta. Plus LCC flat beds and A310s disappearing. C’mon in for a(nother) fun episode!
After an aborted effort a few weeks back hosts Stephan and Fozz finally made it to Taiwan. These are their jetlag-influenced ramblings.
Is Iceland really that popular in Texas? More premium routes and no more A380s are also part of the discussions.
A busted trip to Taiwan, busted Rolls Royce engines and an attempt to bust Boeing’s bullying ways are on the agenda this episode. Plus Hawaii and the A330neo (again).
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.
