The Air Travel podcast — created by Paul Papadimitriou, hosted along with Alex Hunter — top #1 in 35 countries and counting.
134 HKG - All business class 321neo, biometrics AI airports, Qatar 2.0, boarding group 0, IFE gold standard
Alex returns to Hong Kong, Paul discovers La Compagnie. So much travel, so little time to record!
133 ALA - Bundling the unbundling, Condor Brewdog, BER secret door, overhead bin booking, inaugural JetBlue, LH sneakers, with Alex Vukolova
At Layovers, we keep our promises: long time listener Alex Vukolova waited 5 years to be a guest, and this is the day, she's been awesome, for a very special show — we travel on Condor, JetBlue, Transavia, or BA, from Berlin to Almaty to New York to Tokyo and then some, and we geek out on aviation, from a rant about the bundling of the unbundling, to an admiration for Air Astana (not really for the current Almaty airport).
132 BLQ - Finnair hippos, IST hugeness, fast track lounge, Super NES passport, Midfield Tom Cruise run
We visit Bologna, Istanbul, Bari, Birmingham, Brindisi, we are in a Mission Impossible movie, and we're running like Tom Cruise over the new Midfield Terminal in Abu Dhabi.
131 NRT - The Amazing Zipair Race from London to California to Tokyo to Osaka and back
It's a lot about Japan in this episode. And the two dings, the ominous two dings, they will make robots of flight attendants.
130 MSP - Cheap travel and the hamster wheel of miles and status in the post-Covid devaluation times, with Kyle 'Hello Kitty' Potter
Kyle Potter, Executive Editor at Thrifty Traveler, all-around awesome dude, Hello Kitty enthusiast, and long time Layovers listener and friend, tells us all about why MSP is the best thing ever, like everything in Minnesota.
129 GVA - Attaché bromance, Air Force Ones, 777X windows, fly with film, Covid weight, Vomit Pro, Brian Shul
We ate a lot of chocolate, lots of cheese, and laughed a lot — how we traveled to Geneva to record Attaché for YouTube (the airline didn't put us on a scale for the return leg).
Great Listen !
