New seats, new routes, and a comeback of quality flooring round out this week’s top stories.
This week’s episode is a little different. It’s just Fozz and Stephan, as Seth is soaking in all the avgeekery he can at the Dubai Airshow and there hasn’t been a ton of news. But, some of the highlights are:
Opening back up is great, but the inconsistencies are hard to handle. So are the lines.
We’re not flying for real so the new MS Flight Sim might be a useful replacement. Plus, regionals shutting down, destinations dropped and a union squeeze.
Hot weather across the country and some hot topics for discussion on this week’s show, like new partnerships, furloughs and retirements.
A new alliance affiliation, a new secondary cities airline in the USA and unblocking EuroBiz middles: What does it all mean?!?
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??
