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.
Jetlagged and in a crazy hotel room is not quite the ideal trip Fozz and Stephan were hoping for on this Singapore trip but things don’t always work out the way you plan.
Everything is changing, from routes to aircraft types to terminals to award charts. And there’s a good reason it is happening now. Plus, concerts on planes and a major airport expansion on the horizon.
How do you fight the clock against viral media? And is there ever really a good time for international action that isolates a country? Plus a new long Dreamliner route and animals on planes.
Lots of stuff happening in Asia, from partnerships to award travel to Singapore hawker stalls. Polaris takes a (bigger) delay and a Westin has math troubles.
No electronics on airplanes, Growth in Seattle and Cuts at LaGuardia. Plus more details on the LAX shuffle coming this May. Hooray!
Europe’s aviation market is a bit of a mess, with Monarch on the cusp of closing and Air Berlin making major changes. SPG & Marriott are merged and Fozz books a flight on air!
When the fourth longest route in the world suddenly has direct competition something crazy is happening in the industry. Or, you know, airlines gonna airline.
