We faced a couple mechanicals getting this week’s episode recorded, but are willing to admit that truth, rather than blaming weather, unlike some airlines.
We’re on location this week, recording at the IATA Annual General Meeting in Boston where industry CEOs and suppliers gathered to absolutely not collude on anything they cannot legally address.
We lost last week’s episode, but came back strong this time around with planes big and small crossing oceans and some fun new routes and money for US startups.
More airline partnership and a key route trimmed. Plus, cool new trains and airlines and loyalty plays.
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.
No, that’s not a typo. We’re mourning the loss of the Convair 580s from commercial service, now slated for next year, among many other things in this week’s episode.
We’re back in the sky! Also, new doors, routes, snacks, and planes headed to storage.
An island hopper that only takes 8 hours and does not risk military base diversions has us pretty excited. Just need it to actually operate now.
Major cuts extending beyond China and beyond planes. Plus old enemies are friends and another dream of beds in long-haul economy…C’mon in!
A new alliance affiliation, a new secondary cities airline in the USA and unblocking EuroBiz middles: What does it all mean?!?
