No, really, some love for the old LaGuardia leads off this week’s show. Plus some new plane types, strike compensation and a mistake connecting in Cairo.
Strikes happen. In aviation the impact can be dramatic, but usually it gets figured out well enough. British Airways managed to throw that playbook out the window this week, however.
New planes (787-10s), new union lawsuits (AA & DL) and new access to faster immigration lines (UK eGates) are just some of the exciting news in this week’s show.
Who is a strong airline leader these days? What are the qualities that it takes? And why do so many seem to do it so badly??
Gatwick drones attacked, and we never really learned their demands. An airline sale, a diversion and more better awards, too!
A quick bonus hit this week, covering American’s new routes to Europe and United’s new plan to keep flight attendants happy.
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!
It isn’t always about the planes. Well, I mean it is, but occasionally other bits creep in to the conversation, too.
