We’re back in the sky! Also, new doors, routes, snacks, and planes headed to storage.
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.
We’re deep in the throes of learning what requirements will exist for passengers to prove they’re healthy and resume travel. This week’s episode has a very unlikely candidate for one such test.
Thousands of planes parked, some permanently, make for stunning images. But it comes at a cost, with jobs lost and an economic hit that is hard to measure so far.
Is it time for airports to join the consolidation game? We talk a lot about airlines and mergers (and bankruptcies these days) but airports might also benefit from joining forces.
Two airlines disappearing in a month is bad news, but that seems to be what’s happening right now. Plus some loyalty changes in Canada and Australia and a silent ride over Oregon in a balloon.
Yes, “bleisure” is an annoying word. But it just might be a better way to travel. With a couple different trips to Prague recently the team is ready to debate its value.
Big fines for airlines, big meal service changes and big new aircraft plans highlight this weeks show!
As award charts disappear is loyalty following them out the door? Plus a new A350 cabin and more MAX grounding discussions.
A busted trip to Taiwan, busted Rolls Royce engines and an attempt to bust Boeing’s bullying ways are on the agenda this episode. Plus Hawaii and the A330neo (again).
