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.
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!
If you’re going to sneak into Canada we suggest a Trojan Zamboni as the obvious choice for transportation. And apparently Quebec is the best place to make your move.
A great credit card debate to kick things off this week. Which is terribly unusual, but also pretty interesting. Also, the US3 v ME3 might finally be settled, with a bit of Mexican collateral damage. And do people really care that much about tomato juice on board!?!
Fozz almost got stuck in Berlin this weekend, but quick thinking saved the day. Also, errors bring lawsuits, The ME3 are all sorts of crazy and purple is coming to Delta’s uniforms.
