Great podcast

I enjoy this podcast tremendously. Great information on the airline industry. Unbiased, well researched and presented in a professional, but also entertaining way. Thank You for all you do.

Delivery issues

The content is interesting but the presentation detracts from it. The hosts talk over each other occasionally and the nervous giggling just must stop already.
