Will a Middle East merger happen? Did a plane run very low on fuel? Is the new UA boarding process a joke? Lots of answers in this week’s show!
In a growing industry where will all the planes go? SFO, MEX, AMS and many more are full while expansion options are limited. New catering, routes, boarding rules and a presidential 747 won’t change that, but we talk about them anyways.
Norwegian is finally ready to fly in Argentina and Primera wants more TATL. Plus United is doing strange things in Hawaii and lots more!
Real-world experience with a new LCC long haul product and lots of talk about more new LCC routes. Plus China/Taiwan troubles continue and some super-cool landing gear will be flying soon.
United’s 737-10 and 787-10 combine to change the US transcon market, plus pilot housing in Hong Kong, a FAM gone wild and a potential strike in France. C’mon in!
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.
Daytime flights from the east coast of North America to London can be a great way to help recover from jetlag. But starting on the west coast can make them a mess. Fozz and Stephan both did that last week and agree that it isn’t a great idea. Plus, a stolen Q400, terminal dumps in Germany, and finally a use for the new Berlin airport!
United Airlines trimmed its assets this quarter owing to the new open skies arrangement with Brazil. Tehran is getting trimmed this summer as well, while . Plus nuts are getting trimmed from Southwest and lots more in this week’s episode!
Manmade islands are all the rage in the Gulf region, but this one is a political chasm, not a luxury residence play. Plus Norwegian shifts some service and Stroopwafels are taking a break at United.
Does it feel like this trio of topics come up too often? Maybe if they weren’t always doing silly things we’d venture out more. But not this week. Because American, United and Rolls-Royce continue to dig themselves into holes. Ouch.
