The infamous Cranky Flier joins us this week to talk route planning, biz travel’s collapse, and some fun with airport ratings.
Change fees, jet packs, massive corruption and a fun new private plane. C’mon in and learn a bit in this week’s show!
We’re not flying for real so the new MS Flight Sim might be a useful replacement. Plus, regionals shutting down, destinations dropped and a union squeeze.
Schedules slashed, Inflight magazines fly home and hundreds of millions in refunds. Plus, we nerd out with special guest Pizza in Motion about RV life.
When an airline says it is concerned about passenger safety and then increases the number of seats sold that can be hard to reconcile. But at least they’re leaving it members of their cabin crew to keep posting anti-mask FUD on social media, right??
The Las Vegas strip is open again. Or at least open-ish. It is a far cry from the typical levels of action and activity, but things are starting to come back and it is very different. But also very the same. Here’s a first-hand report from the Strip on opening weekend.
An airport closes, possibly forever. Another was already closed when the plane showed up. And airlines are still planning their financial turnarounds as demand starts to creep higher.
What does high school shop class have to do with our travel experiences? Absolutely nothing, but that’s rarely stopped us from talking about other topics, so why start now??
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.
Is it time for airports to join the consolidation game? We talk a lot about airlines and mergers (and bankruptcies these days) but airports might also benefit from joining forces.
