Collapsing joint ventures, splitting London, and plenty of bubbles to burst in this week’s show.
As borders start to reopen the requirements for entry to some countries can be onerous. Or completely reasonable. But the inconsistencies make it really challenging for travelers to plan.
No, we’re not the first people to make that joke about a trip to Kathmandu (and beyond in Nepal). But Seth is there now and having way too much fun so we’re talking about it and lots of other fun travel news as well.
What’s better than running in to a fan of the podcast in Singapore on a random business trip? Getting to chat with them about some cool technology that helps make travel better. Oh, and some fun dots and lines accumulated over the years.
Sure, we can just close that airport for a few months. No big deal. And maybe close down tourism in a city, too. And close a hub while we’re at it. Lots of fun stuff in this week’s show!
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.
We mean long routes, not an extra long episode, so don’t worry too much about that. Then again, some of our conversations are pretty long rambles. Enjoy!
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.
