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.
Kicking off the show with a bad conspiracy theory about hurricanes probably isn’t our strongest play, but here we are. It gets better pretty quickly.
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.
A loyalty points scheme not worth buying in to and another that surprisingly is. Plus an airline disappears, a very long flight returns, and lots 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.
Ending a trip early, ending a career early and making a holiday mess thanks to outsourcing. Here’s hoping that 2020 is better than the end of 2019!
A smooth connection in Seattle was unexpected. Smoothing connections in Africa might be useful. And Brexit likely means rough connections for millions. Hooray!
Engines, engines, everywhere! Even more of which are now broken. Plus many inaugurals and maybe your biometric security data will be sold to an airline or airport soon.
Will the Singapore-Newark route really fly? Some of us are more skeptical than others. Plus, United’s new elite status for corporations, body scanner cameras for the subway, gentrification sucks, Twitter sucks, US traffic from China tanked and more.
