In a growing industry where will all the planes go? SFO, MEX, AMS and many more are full while expansion options are limited. New catering, routes, boarding rules and a presidential 747 won’t change that, but we talk about them anyways.

Perhaps calling it one of the earliest travel tales is a stretch, but The Sea Queen by Linnea Hartsuyker is being released in the USA next week and we’re talking about some of the travel behind the scenes and the travel in the book, too. Plus, TSA idiocy and some problems in Europe with passengers slipping past security checkpoints.

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.
