Super informative!

Intelligent and highly listenable - a must for anyone in the airline business

Despite his name, Cranky is a calm, well informed and highly polished presenter of industry news and thought leadership.
I particularly like his West Coast laid back style; unpretentious and humble yet Cranky’s deep knowledge and experience is obvious from his insights and interview questions.
A must listen show when it drops into my playlist!
