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.
Seth is in Hamburg, but Fozz and Stephan are debating what is the “east Bay” and what is the “south Bay”. Riveting stuff. Chime in with your opinion.
There’s something particularly strange about building an itinerary just to fly 4 different LCCs in 2 days in Japan. That’s what we have Seth for. Plus, a 767 renaissance, LGA shuffles, SFO air art and more.
A near miss at SFO is big news this week, as are missed earnings numbers, status matches and an AvGeek tragedy.
Are more electronics bans coming? And why can the general public now buy in on a crazy charter route. More growth at SFO, a whoopsie on Air Force 1 and a Gogo giveaway, too!
Smaller US cities are seeing a resurgence in air service from the major carriers. Plus, Stephan’s favorite restaurant in Berlin is now also Seth’s favorite.
Are alliances dead? How many gates is too many to give up to consummate a merger? And just why would Emirates be interested in flying to Buffalo, New York? Listen to the show to find out the answers to these questions and more!
It isn’t always about the planes. Well, I mean it is, but occasionally other bits creep in to the conversation, too.
A hijacked plane led to the most talked about selfie since Ellen’s Oscars product placement. Plus Hungary wants to add US service with Emirates and Havana is already cracking under US tourism stress.
The embarrassment that is Berlin Brandenburg, another airline bankruptcy and an airport bathroom review. Plus the best ice cream in the world. C’mon in!
