"To anything that the airport the new airport has or has not done on its own this. Due to the fact that they're the airport authority has had. Like, every other Airport Authority right now and transit agency in airline business, they have no money coming in. So. It's not really the curse of Brandenburg on its own, but it's Certainly righted. It's yes. Yeah. The the the three, hundred, million euros his not not hunt they're doing if you have three hundred, million euros of Alexis support the new berliner. CENDANT. Sure that one of our listeners is going to get right on that to close the show we we've got some good news assessements successfully landed on highway and part of the highway, and that's all I've got. They ran out of gas they landed they put more gas in the plane they took off. I have. I have so many questions. I have questions. So we only know about this. Usually I mean finding a high is not all that out of the ordinary it happens time to time, but usually you don't see. Craft leaves the highway here in. New. York at mystic if it I think it's a state law. If that aircraft lands on state property, they actually have to chop it up because I know aircraft have landed on beaches before and although they can take off the they do not take off. But in this case, they literally gasped up the plane rolled down the the highway right before a major interchange and were on their way, and it was very surreal looking ahead of police escort behind them while traffic in the other direction on the other side of the grassy median was flowing like normal. So you have these people driving to the other direction. And a little Cessna one, seventy, two's coming right at them. Eat Ms flowing like normal until they saw the plane. Yeah. I shot that they have that much police presence and none of them thought hey, maybe we should stop traffic in the other direction. If a plane is heading right towards people they don't freak out or you know if the plane Rosetta gas again but this raises questions I imagine this pilot is going to get a call from the FAA very soon on how did this happen because it's one thing for an aircraft to run out of fuel if there's a fuel league or if there's whether impacting their ability to land or navigate, but this aircraft is only in the air for about twenty minutes. Totally. Had just taken off and obviously there was not a few weeks because they were able to gas up and fly back out. So is it possible but this pilot took off without fuelling up or even checking the gauges that that has to be the only way this happened right I mean I suppose anything's possible. Maybe it was a question of measurements or or they didn't tap on the fuel gauge hard enough to to make sure that there was fuel in there i. I honestly don't ask questions and I'm sure the FAA will mirror the. I'm sure the FAA. Also has questions but happy ending they were able to guess up and go. And now it's time for us to go. Yes have a date with some pasta. There you go. This has been episode ninety three of talk I am Ian Pech Nick here as always with Jason Rabinowitz. Thanks for listening..

"On this episode of ABC talk we see how far air traffic fell in March. And what we're likely to see in April. We also take a look at some of the more interesting flights that airlines have operated in the past few weeks and Yorkers Manolas this for marine traffic joins us to discuss what their data can tell us about. How cove nineteen is affecting the global economy? Hello and welcome to episode. Eighty two of abqtalk Ian Pech. Nick here as always with Jason Rabinowitz. Holo Ian. How are you Hello Jason. I'm I'm hanging in there. I've mustered the late afternoon. Energy to record this podcast. I am caffeinated. I am carbonated and and I'm here to go. I'm carbonated but I'm going with the depressant now rather than a stimulant so kind of the opposite direction I as of this moment. I am switching from stimulants to to depress so club. Were yes so we're We're headed in the right direction. I think how are you managing with your quarantining and pen such? I haven't been to my office in. I guess three four three or four weeks now. I won't be back until sometime in June. Apparently I'm thankful I moved into a slightly larger but still small apartment earlier this year. I don't know how I would have managed in my last department but I'm managing as best as anyone who really likes spying around too weird places. All the time can be if they're confined to their basically a four city block radius around the place they live. I mean you could make a game out of it in. Turn your apartment into some sort of ultra plush. First Class Cabin. Sure I mean the closest I get to an airplane right now is i. Look out my window at the Laguardia arrivals go right by my window. Pretty much on most approaches. But these days it could be like thirty forty five sixty minutes before between arrivals as opposed to just a couple of weeks ago and it was about every forty five to sixty seconds. I mean does that even make it better or worse I don't know if that's comforting thing or just kinda rubbing it in. I'm not sure I think it's somewhere in the middle like it. It's depressing of course necessary but super depressing Just missing airplanes. There is that there. Yeah certainly that yeah. I'm looking at the website that I track planes on. You may have used before but like the next rival to Laguardia. Right now is twenty one minutes away. The one behind. That is forty two and there's only six out there right now so it's not going set to set to shrink. Yeah we'll get to that but again it's it's a good thing in way is terrible depressing but a necessary. It's a necessary thing I hesitate to say. It's good but it's necessary. It's certainly a thing. It's certainly a thing. Well we with the three at home and my wife now at home all the time we bought a Bouncy Castle for the House for that come over and I mean I mean one day one day I was really excited and I looked at the weight limit and got a little upset. Oh we'll have to stop drinking this beer in order to eat something about up to drink far less beer and probably cut yourself in half. That's not yet no. It's definitely designed for kids. But they're certainly enjoying it hand and that is bringing me joy but it turns out you can stick a bouncy house inside your living room end so so if anyone's wondering where we're that's we were at. That is where we are at. I do not have room for about two castle but good to note for the future so this is our first episode in April after two back to back episodes when things were extremely uncertain changing day by day so we did an episode two weeks in a row and then we took a week off to to get back on a regular schedule and we're playing it by ear mostly depending on what's happening in the world and how quickly things are changing but the rate of change seems to have slowed down at least as far as aviation concern. Yeah well when you hit rock bottom. There's only so much share not. We're not there yet. But we're getting sick yet. This is true this is true the US is most certainly not at rock-bottom vo at were we'll get there. Yeah and so I thought it would be worth it to take a quick look at what ended up happening in March as far as the numbers we were talking about. You know things down and things staying down so total. Flights in March ended down twenty one point six percent. That's it's kind of misleading statistic. I think and we did a blog post earlier last week explaining this a little bit because if you look at the first week of March nothing really was out of the ordinary. Traffic was up four and a half percent globally. Because things really hadn't gone too far outside of China in some immediate joining countries as far as traffic was concerned. Then you get to the last week in March and traffic is down fifty five percent so a huge change in really just a week. I mean the eleventh and twelfth of March are really you think the defining moments for aviation in this and it's not getting better or coming back anytime soon from everything we've seen so far. No we're we're looking at. I think at this point we're GONNA see the US market further decline in the number of flights operated. But I feel like we're closing in on. I don't even want to call it normal because it's not normal at all but a new stasis a new kind of baseline where we're seeing something around thirty thousand commercial flights a day fifty to sixty thousand total flights looking at the numbers. I mean that could change next week and we could be sitting here going. Wow Ian was really wrong but I guess it remains to be seen depending on how how carriers adapt their new and their new schedules once again because it feels like airlines are cutting a little bit or a lot day by day. Yeah at least in the. Us were seeing. Most airlines have cut their scheduled the absolute bare bones here in the US through pretty much the end of May pass June things. Get a little more optimistic and then it ramps backup. Kinda to what was once normal. July and beyond American has made some pretty dramatic cuts to its international route network. It really seemed like domestically they haven't touched anything. Have they know I mean the domestic? That still seems rather optimistic to me. Extremely optimistic the American. We're just using American. Here is an example because they published the most comprehensive and and I guess the most to date information. They chopped a lot of their international capacity. A lot of routes that we're going to launch a lot of the summer. Seasonal routes will not be launching again for twenty twenty but.

The Downing of PS752

"Hello and welcome to episode seventy-five seventy five of APP talk. I am passionate here as always with Jason Rabinowitz. Hi Ian. How's your New Year's? Hello Jason the New Year in personally. The New Year is off to a decent start but it has not been a good year so far now. The past two weeks at were recording on January fourteenth. The past two weeks has been a very long year. I'm done I'm happy to be done with twenty twenty already. All right. You're twenty twenty one hour bring it on. None of that's right. That's not how it works now. Okay I think we have to address reality all right. Well then then let us address reality a quick recap up the last two weeks and then we'll take things in order as has it works by piece the time so the year since we last recorded we've had a Falker. One hundred in Kazakhstan briefly left the ground and came back down skit along the side of the runway in impacted. A building thing that led to the first fatal accident of the year then there were missile launches from Iran into Iraq in retaliation for for the US killing in Iranian general that led to changes in. How Airlines were using the Airspace that same night. A Ukraine international airlines seven. Three seven was shot down while departing Tehran by Iranian surface to air missiles. All the while the seven three seven Max Saga continues with the additional release of documents since and messages between seventy seven pilots. That do not paint a pretty picture at all on the stranger side. Confederal state and local officials are hunting mystery drones in Colorado Nebraska and Wyoming and in not quite breaking news but happened happened earlier today. A Delta triple seven dumped fuel in return in preparation for emergency returned to Los Angeles and the Fuel Oh fell on a school playground so we have enough news in the first two weeks of the year to fill many episodes of the podcast. So we will I guess. Just start where. Where do we go from here? I don't WanNa know really do not want to know now. Well fortunately we have a bullet list that we sometimes read off of those. Just go top to bottom there. You go it okay. So on the seventh into the eighth of January January the Iranian military fired missiles towards a base that houses Iraqi at US troops in Iraq so is missiles caused some structural damage. And things like that but but no one was killed as far as is reporting. I I've seen what then happened was a quick succession of no temps issued the the coakley notice to airmen named long before So they kind of the anachronistic title but saying from the FAA saying don't fly over Iraq. Don't fly over. Iran don't fly over the Persian Gulf. And don't play over the Gulf Mont Right which only impacts airlines are based. I believe just based in the US which would impact very few if any fights. It's actually operating in that region right so at the beginning of the night after this happened it looked like there wasn't going to be much impact to who aviation because of this particular kind of retaliatory missile strikes and there were other airlines. That said we're GONNA follow those. It's an not necessarily follow the. FAA's prohibitions but we're we agree with them and we will also not fly over right. I think notably British Airways was one of if not the first I to make a u-turn and find another round right. They were coming up from. I believe it was a flight from one of the British Airways destinations in India back to London and they reached Kuwait to wait and decided that they were going to go through Saudi Arabia and Egypt rather than travel up through Iraq so as the night went on other airlines made made made changes to their flight paths and even earlier in the week. A few airlines had announced that they weren't going to fly over Ronnie in airspace notably Singapore her with announced on the sixth of January before the missile strikes that they would not be flying over around anymore. They moved their flights to the north up to you passing through kind of Azerbaijan and Tajikistan on their way to Singapore from their European destinations and it looked like there would be kind of a headache is for civil aviation concern to you no longer routings. Flights would have to fly around but there there there wouldn't be a huge impact right. This is all things. We've seen before their unfortunate geopolitics are annoying. Sometimes fights have to add had literally on top of already quite long flights. But it's still you work with it right and like we've talked about especially with the Pakistan India Afghanistan Afghanistan airspace closures in early twenty. Nine hundred thousand. These are things that the airlines are closely following. They're planning for. They have contingencies season. Things like that then in the early morning hours in Tehran a Ukrainian international airline seven three seven departed started and about two minutes after departure. We lost the DSP signal and then there started to be reports that the aircraft had crashed right it. I mean when we first started looking at the ads data is pretty clear that something absolutely catastrophic had happened extremely quickly as the data look normal like they were on their regular departure path from the airport like every other time in every other fight before them that day but then the data just is kind of stopped and that's not something you typically see in crashes or incidents like this usually. There's some sort of indication that something is beginning to go wrong. But this this was just a stop of the data. Exactly there was no change in speed or altitude or or anything like that or even heading that would provide an indication that something happened in past incidents in crushes. We've seen you know a dramatic increase in vertical speed negative vertical speed in increasing ground speed at a loss of altitude or some combination of those. Here you're all three receivers that had been receiving data from seven five two stopped in the same second. The data just stopped comic nick and that was an indication that something catastrophic had happened. And we didn't know what yet and so for the past week. A number of organizations have done some incredible reporting in some incredible open source reporting through verifying video and things like that and that led to on the eleventh of January the Iranian government taking responsibility for shooting the aircraft out right and and pretty much watch from the second word had gone out that an aircraft was down the Iranian officials. Were immediately blaming it on mechanical issues of some sort which is impossible to know that early on especially in the complete absence of any transmissions from the flight crew on board that aircraft for obvious. Obvious reasons they didn't make any but that was the initial word out of Iran in that prove obviously to not be the case. Yeah and so the pressure. Her that arose to conduct a proper investigation from Ukraine From elsewhere really kind of drove a A an unrelenting kind of drumbeat of what actually happened

You're listening to dots lines is and destinations travel podcast with host. Stephen Seagraves falls moon and said Miller seven hundred we are in the Essence Palace hotel not the essence hotel which is completely different chain now. Is it up. Maybe that's expedia screwed up in transcending eight blocks away as you can tell yeah we have Jason joining us this week yes Jason Rabinowitz of flight radar and airline Flyer fame yeah. Let's go with that happy to be here here very very full right now. We just finished a food tour in old quarter of noise. Are we in the front. Do we cross the French area in the French district. I think you know there's there's no one to stop you when you do that so it's hard to tell no border control awkward invading France Reference Much love are we are the open some beers. I think we are talking about that. Some beers back what do we what do we drinking divy dark. which is the first star Beer? I've seen since we've been here. We've got Hanoi anouilh beer. which you know is as named things a logger and we've got Huda which is one of the other? Ooh The late on the WHO does the bridge in denial which is like two hands holding up the big which job who visit we did not we sort of forgot about that and then it was too late. That's apparently to get there. The world's longest suspended cable car really so I feel really bad now that we didn't got their mom very nice so we're going to start with Jason. You're the guest let me go with Bridge Beard Bridge Bear to go start. That's how we're going to reference it yeah so we'll get that goring but while we're going through this we should talk about other things why were here. It's so damn hot. Let's talk about what's going on here. Let's talk about why we're here. Think about some of us are here because Cafe Pacific perfect screwed up yes which a lot of people know about the New Year's Eve Fair mistake but someone get drunk at the Catholic Start Publishing. I think it was a form of protests that's Mike before. It started between he wants to be out of the coffee. That's all you and all bridge beer. This is operatives because we're all drinking. I've I bet here's Jomon we decided to our dates overlap seth from we were like oh I can come as early and yeah we're gonNA hang out and then randomly talking to Jason Rather than he smartly suggested practitioner visit yeah it's better than being in the office right now but manages regular ticket so yeah youth over here on Delta Yeah Delta reward I think fifty thousand miles laguardia on that skype pesos Laguardia Detroit Seoul Hanoi in the way Mac back go through Seattle which is a little different senior didn't on the Seattle the thirty neo yup strategically pick that one out of Detroit to get the three five nine through Seattle at the thirty nine hundred it'll taste of everything new and what's hilarious make it back to the Pacific northwest before me minor details. Maybe dropping my last segment than ending Seattle. Oh very nice yes yes. We'll see after I fly. It's hard to tell and I came over. I was thinking position for the Hanoi there. Are you at my parents how to handle. I I did Qatar via at JFK to denying or Dong Dong Dong Dong do dead head. That's definitely not that dead data's the airport. Oh yes. I don't doubt yeah it was. I he also somewhat strategically picked up a four hundred dollar one-way ticket like I'm two hundred so hard to skip that and be I was pretty confident that the loads would be late and I had an empty seat next to me for jeopardy. Doha and a whole row on the seventy seven for how to to denying so how how full was that flight delighted today. I was by far not the only I would hope to myself. There were several. It's a very odd. I think it's an online through winning the other two. I mean three do that. I don't know I would guess not uh-huh I look. I look for as a last award. I didn't see any I only saw him and I don't think emerets does and behind is like Mesa business on route that does not yes and no I think Qatar is definitely silently trying to pick up a some bilateral treaty route authorities childhood. Were like that could Victoria government hasn't voted in Minnesota. You did on out. Governments are somewhat loath to try to extend those by. I also think that I feel like Qatar has picked. I'm saying like more leisure focused. Ross necessarily but there's some I think it was a strategy. They are of a slightly different target. Market is not quite as you know. It's not they both still have a decent chunk of worker type. targets by the Qatar Airways routes they added like more beach resorts and less cities hosting going leisurely. GonNa Leisure a little bit yeah while the Ritz picking up city traffic and it's somewhat premium these your stuff I mean you know all that four hundred dollar one way ticket. Clearly is not premium flying around the world but the planes plains empty. GotTa Get rid of those seats somehow or you know. Stop the route. What's interesting is and I. I think there's only two people in business two WOW I. I think what's interesting. The Turkish Turkish lies to coachman city and to annoy yeah one. I believe one of them's that's triple seven thrived probably Ganja and then here's Nathan thirty and apparently does really well and a lot of connections in the United States. I think is an odd way to get here but you're from the east coast. It's it's this this closer to watch. It's twenty four hours. No matter what like I tried differently too fast Antonio basically from Hong Kong. It's maybe it's Mitch faster beyond. Maybe as much faster astor but yeah. I mean I took. I took Japan Airlines. I flew to JFK because I needed to drop overnight bag off in New York and the Flu Jake Rida Rida here. It's a twenty four hour fancy though I did. I did GEL I. What did you think Nice Very Nice. Did you have a right to yourself. I actually had yet well kind of only four people yeah yeah so. I had a bed in the middle seat. They made up everyone's beds in the middle. Had I just move out over when you're at the end. They're like whenever you WANNA sleep. That's a bit role across the and they ask you like. Do you want a hard hard. Mattress cover soft metrics with a heart felt like the Japanese experience yeah and it was good yeah yeah. This is back in very good sturdy. service was a it's a little formal. I I'm with you on that. I don't actually like the Asian premium data service I I feel like they sit and stare at me like expect something from me and I'm like I don't want out bullet. I tell them we're done. This conversation. Izzo was was there actually conversation. I mean that's the point we see. You're connecting into Hanoi. What are you doing their house like going to Hawaii but you you good service very friendly. I guess it's interesting to me one of complaints about the Asian carriers premium services that doesn't have that personal yet zeal zeal to it like right. I always American or Delta United like you can spread conversation with the flight attendants and shoot the Shit a little bit and whether they care or not and some you know sometimes they often whatever but at least there's a style of conversation and whatever that I feel I make sense and especially I'm storming back after ten days in China where they are very few people spoke English at all. I was super happy to be fine home on a US carrier because I can have like full sentences worth conversation as opposed to appointed a menu and be like one please and yet they understood that I mean it was it was weird because like I didn't eat one of course I didn't finish it and they like immediately thought something was wrong dishonored their shifts and I I was like great. I'm just I'm full. I WANNA eat the rest of the food and they're like okay. It's Okay No. I'm not judging you take pictures of all that 'cause. That's another reason they might think it's hot. I actually I I didn't take pictures in front of them. I only took pictures of two courses and that was saying you call yourself a travel blog no okay so it was good and the connection experience in Tokyo. Tokyo's being renovated right now. Rita is is the airport being basically gutted and so good thing to when you're losing all your options and they've also gotten rid of transit security which I didn't realize who says annoying yeah. I rivals thought right. Only I think if you're going to south South Korea you have to re clear security because their regular when I went us Hong Kong by the head scaredy YEP and so we used to be annoying but pretty quick very fast. I was worried because I had extra liquids like I don't WanNa have to and then I realized that they spit us out typically interim the lower level on any bob some escalators young go to security and they had some stairs and we were in the transit area and I was kind of like this Audra. Did I break something but it definitely made the experience. Faster shop and three hours is still too long for me so I got really bored orderly fast. I'm got four and a half on the way home and I'm going to independent see I comment on twitter. I think you're nuts yeah me too four hours. I mean even it's twenty five my minutes. Each way on the train plus walk time and whatnot plus clearing the extra screening on the way back. It gives me basically an hour in town and it's like he could probably grab some noodles or I was going to see a friend. I I mean there was I wasn't just going for granted but as probably got to out to forty five Indian Sean. I think which is just enough time for the flight to be delayed hit the lounge shower up next fight. I guess deal yeah if you can get into the lounge shower in that time. This launch aren't good not good. They're not bad AH yeah they. There was a law way less than when I was there for a GM. They never even got chance that I was there for a while. I fifteen minutes just to get checked in at AGM. I tried to I tried to use the shower. Both of those challenges one the main lounge from the main terminal was inconsiderate forty five minute wait for shower and then down at the let me remind first-class yet and that was the first because they have their two highest John memberships and oneworld emerald status have access to the F. Law so it's it's. It's a little overcrowded at times. The second laundry went to which is like pure lounge was less busy but still had to wait for the only had three showers so I was in the concourse terminal which has like a priority pass lounge and wide open showers. They weren't the cleanest in the world but they were opening available which was nice. It's nice to get it on that. After a long yeah you see the land should showers. Hannah Anderson Terminal probably skip that but they're just in the bathroom. Poke your head in there. There was it after twenty four hours. You still have a couple of hours to go. That lounge was glorious and I actually think that airport is actually really not the Hanoi Away International Terminal domestic sides. You arrived international yeah but that's not enough. I don't get the get the real filial area that you see the baggage claim and people trying to escape for taxi. You get scammed. I mean you don't even say thing like Laguardia. Where you see guys holding the phone with an Uber background they'd have the grab background and that works pretty funny. Go grab grab grab grab grab grab you which we should say grab is the local taxi is kind the Ryen they have grabbed bike young guys young Stephen we're doing. I'll totally do it. It's fun. I got that recording now. Okay okay. All the rides are like seventy two cents for the forcet tip on top and it's like decent rides guy shows up. Give you a helmet wear. My Dad remarked. He thought it'd refund but he wasn't sure he could put on a helmet. There's been more my people. Get your shower cap or something. GotTa be problem free. I'm okay with that but other than that like you hop on the back and they're they're used to it now in including leading the green and Kinda tell you here's your helmet in on how great it is really the fact of the industry like listen just about everything is cheap here so it is it is pretty. It's kind of sad at the same time I mean. It's great 'cause it's cheap and it's now living wage is not what we would be a living wage in way when we checked out our twenty five minute taxi ride from the hotel the airport plus a ninety minute plus as though from the mini bar came up to thirty three US dollars which is just ridiculous yeah but it is hot as hell here yeah. It's a it is hot. As hell there is that it was a feels like a ninety nine today humidity. I think the temperature itself itself was only ninety one. We were steam. We were cooking top to the point. Where like there's nothing you can do? Just accept it and move on and so you about it all day. Jason sure you're Kinda like okay so Hollis Sydney. AC which is totally cool with that beer place we went was so we jason and I did a food tour into to non earlier in the weekend. Whatever is going on anymore and were there started talking and talk to the guy until we were on our way to way that he was like oh. I got a buddy there. It runs a beer replace open a new crappier missed him and so we went and visited him it turns out there are crappier bars now in Vietnam and be this guy who runs the Bierbauer used to run the food tour and then moved out of denying two-way start the bar are in conjunction with starting the bar and so like the twitter kind of sewn his name even though it's for the food.

Our Super AvGeek Week

"And welcome to episode sixty six of ask talk. I am passionate here as always with Jason Rabinowitz and we've got a good one this week. This is a really good show. I mean it might possibly be one of the most exciting at least for US episodes of the podcast we've ever done now. We obviously haven't recorded yet so we can't quite vouch that. It's going to be good as we think it's going to be but I think it's going to be as good as we think it's going to be. Portions of this episode have been prerecorded and reformatted to fit your ears exactly so here's the format of the episode. We did some things in the past couple of weeks. We're going to definitely talk about those. We've got some special guests coming up by won't ruin it quite yet. Ian Left his house I did. I left my house twice in one week. I didn't even I didn't only leave my house twice choice in one week. I went to a different state twice in one week. You went to three state. Why I left the state but yeah yeah we'll get to that a little bit later on the show because we've got some some real special stuff coming up but in the meantime news waits for no podcast her and that's right so who it has also been an incredibly busy week on that front and I think we should just dive right in with what happened in in Miami with the American Airlines mechanic in that he was arrested for sabotage yeah yeah you shouldn't do that so so if you're you're not aware if you're not from the United States or or hard to imagine you don't keep a close eye in the industry if you are listening to this podcast but American and its its mechanics union aircraft mechanic union have been going at it quite hard for the past few months over contract renegotiations uh-huh and it has not been subtle the leader of Americans mechanics union has not so subtly called for blood and and unfortunately when most people is see this kind of rhetoric. Can they negotiate a tactic. They brush it off. There's always that few percent of if people who take it to heart and do really really really really stupid things and unfortunately this stupid thing happened to be a the American Airlines mechanic at Miami International decided. I really don't like the way the negotiations are going. They've hurt me economically in some way. I'm going into sabotage plane to get overtime to fix the plane I sabotage in not only did he do that but he went about doing it in a very stupid easy to catch way and and there is a a very large investigation into how this happened why it happened why he would do it and I hope he sees many many years of prison time yeah. It's so what happened was is he sprayed or I don't know the exact method of the foam delivery but foam ended up covering a piece of the navigation system that corrupted the ability of the system to function properly. The pilots began their taxi Acsi out on the tax that they never even made it to the runway. This was a pilot or taxing for departure and something's very wrong with the navigation system so they turned around and went back to the gate other mechanics opened up the plane and said bulled that's not supposed to be there and things kind of went from there as as far as the investigation beginning thankfully the other mechanics didn't keep to themselves and keep it in the family they contacted the authorities and corporate security in Mia Miami police and they tracked down very easily who did this. I read the FBI complaint and the employees who sabotage aircraft had a very pronounced the limp and they were able to find video of going to the aircraft that he wasn't ever supposed to touch he typically never left the hanger but in this instance he actually went out to the gate and tampered with the aircraft left and they were able to trace it all back to him and he just outright admitted it all which is I guess good mix prosecution easier but I guess the saving grace of this is that the aircraft work the way it was supposed to it detected an issue at as in described that he disconnected a cable or some sort of air sensor and physically sabotaged it putting Styrofoam in gluing it in the unbelievable that he would leave so much physical evidence behind but the aircraft sense that there was something wrong long and it returned to Gates but there have definitely been cases in the past were not having the proper airspeed data has indeed caused fatal accidents. It's several incidents with Boeing other manufacturer aircrafts and thankfully the aircraft in this instance did what it was supposed to do. Identified the issue and they went back to the gate right but his intention was not to harm the aircraft of the passengers but very easily could have whether his intention was to or not to do so right exactly. It doesn't matter what his intentions were matters. What could have happened and I asked around you know is this was a serious surfing obviously but was this something that that could have easily led to an accident and the answer. I got was not conclusive mostly because we don't know exactly clearly kind of what he did. It wasn't them thankfully. I guess Kinda broadcast hide but like you said I mean there's always the possibility buddy when we're talking about aircrafts that any issue could compound itself especially once the aircraft's in the air and thankfully the American Airlines mechanic seed has thrown own this employee under the bus and completely condoned his behavior that could have gone the other way. The union could have defended him or who knows what but it was good to see them very quickly. Put out a release saying this guy sucks. He doesn't speak for us. We obviously never condone tempering with an aircraft. I don't think that's actually with with the release said that would be some refreshing honesty not a direct credit anyone but at the same time I feel like his actions were directly influenced by the rhetoric coming from the Union. There's that one video from a couple of months ago where the head of union literally calls for blood and declares war on their own airline so if that wasn't unsettling enough this this really shines a bad light on the union unfortunately on American as well because this just can't happen. It should never happen. It is terrible for passengers used to see this on the news and think oh their mechanics on rogue and they're back to be sabotaging your craft. It's just a one off case but man. That's a battle yeah it shall we switched is to a much happier story involving what involving a pilot who just wanted to go on vacation see there are bad employees like be be mechanic down at. Miami and there aren't good employees and this may be easyjet pilot for Manchester Yeah. This may be a bit of a self serving. Good deed read hot air. No no absolutely not it was self serving but it was also kind of amazing and apparently this has happened before but this is quite amazing in that. I'm an easy jet pilot was was ready to depart Manchester. I'd go down to vacation. I think in Spain was it yeah I'll I'll contact yeah yeah him and his family and unfortunately unfortunately one of the two pilots for his flight that he was a passenger on did not show up whether they were operational issues or crew scheduling this was the Monday following the Sunday Sunday French air traffic control issues. I think that French had radar issues and so a lot of easyjet flights got cancelled and and the ones that did run ended up you you know how the Easyjet operates a lot of flights where they go out in back or they go one two three and then they're supposed to end up at three but they were only able to get to two and so they their operations were a little out of sync the following morning yes so this pilot rather than leading the fight be cancelled and vacations ruined. He said screw it. I'll fly the plane. I got pilot's license. I got my ID. What's fire this thing up in get down to Spain yeah. That's got to be one of those things where you can't tell. It's a joke at first. If you're a passenger there was a woman who recorded video of him making the announcement about what was happening and I guess is is this guy serious. Is this actually happening and for the plane high Bill. I don't have a uniform but I'll be flying your plane today basically what he said Yeah. I mean let people know the pilot. Wasn't you know the the captain was able to make the flight and then all of a sudden. He's he's in a perfect position to fly down there so they went. I think one of the articles I saw the airport ops had called the headquarters and said hey we won't operate this flight with with the off duty pilots and I said Okay we'll call you back in about thirty seconds later. They called back and say go get the flight out. Just go just go who cares what he's wearing. Yeah it's a lot of e U two six four compensation that they will not have to pay the bills willing to operate a flight on his precious vacation die that thought about that you competition will never even occurred to me but yeah I guess I guess that that was some quick math that they did. Whatever we have to pay you it's far less than we would have spent the passengers singers so the reincarnation of the fourth or fifth version of the wild brand this week. Maybe we sort of yeah really a this is ludicrous. Did you watch the press conference. I couldn't get through the whole thing it was it was to Joseph Heller esque. I think it was also very trumpian and a lot of ways where she look. Let's back up a few steps. Assure bio meets yeah so there's a is an investment for a woman. I don't really know if she is an investment firm what but but she is very much of the opinion that wow air is a brand worth salvaging and salvaging now while come back now so they sank like eighty six million dollars which is half of the amount due or something along those lines but they think a lot of money into buying the how the remnants of wow air air and apparently they want to relaunch service between Iceland and Washington Dulles next month this coming October with the two unidentified aircraft. I guess they have them in mind. Along with dedicated cargo freighters they have two that are ready to go to to bring they're beautiful fish and delicious water out of Iceland as she kept saying what they're beautiful flight attendants majestic skies and the whole thing is I don't know anyone that thinks wow Ariza brand word saving came and went so quickly in spectacular fashion stranded a lot of people and brought Icelandair to the brink of financial ruin by its back. I guess maybe kind of I think this is going to fall into the category of Kabila. Leave it. When I see it type thing the yeah the whole idea bringing back wow I get it was a a very easy easy brand to understand. I mean wow the planes are per bowl. You've got you fly to Iceland and you fly back and forth. I get that that proposition is very easy. This seems to be taking that ease of recognisability and turning it into this weird hybrid hybrid like the cargo thing why not just start cargo flights. I don't understand how that's a wild thing I don't know and the whole thing of of wow is supposed to be an ultra low cost carrier. That's what they were. That's what SORTA worked for them but at the same time she's talking about. We want to have a a lounge Catholic for all our passengers. We don't charge for water and we want to have Michelin starred Chefs Lady. That's not how ultra low cost carriers work. You have to pay for all those things so you can make money. Unfortunately our didn't make enough money. Even being ultra low cost a bottom barrel pay for everything. I don't know if she's ever operated braided airline in the past. I don't believe so but an airline cannot on the one hand the ultra low cost and at the same time have lounges for everyone and give you free Ramillo's on a five hour transatlantic redeye from Washington to Iceland it just none of that bath checks out but it sounds like a recipe for a very very nice ace airline that will operate for one week yes so. I don't like to throw them. Throw them away so quickly but do not book a flight on this airline. Let's start offering offering it because I don't understand how they could turn around to start offering flights this October so damn quickly. It doesn't make sense. I don't do that unless it's so cheap you can just throw the forty bucks fairway not care. I mean if I'm going to get a trip to Iceland free water. 'cause I mean okay but the water is delicious and Michelle Starr meal and do wait a minute. Wait a minute. I just figured it out. The whole cargo think they're gonNa make you carry the cargo in your hands into the seat. Aren't that's a nice value add proposition. That's you're going to have to hold the fish yeah. That's going to be so cheap so we can't eat the fish we have. Have you just have to hold fit. You are the cargo carrier. Oh well yeah the whole thing. Is it reeks of like eastern nine or something like that just but I don't really know. We got to see this week but that lead story for later in the episode yeah so yeah while coming back second apparently very quickly. I don't buy it. I don't see the need for its but shore speaking of airlines which are a little confusing confusing and usually on our radar we continue to question whether Norwegian will exist in the medium term future yeah or even short turn this short term future yeah. They are having worse financial issues than than usual usual. They've really a bunch of external factors of really hit Norwegian hard for when they started long operations. Boeing was late delivering the seven eight seven which was unfortunate fortunate so they started operations with their craft from anyone who had them and then the Trent went thousands broke and so they had to wet leased aircraft from anyone that could have than the seven three. Max grounded so they had to wet leased aircraft from anyone who they could find sensing a pattern here. I'm getting the pattern here and so speaking of wet lease just a few of the current wet lease operations operating on behalf of Norwegian a euro-atlantic seven six seven the high flight eight hundred eighty a high flame three forty develop a

So again, really interesting show this year. So what is the difference between the eighth or twenty one are and the Exo are if you had one sentence to describe it, give me the elevator pitch. Okay. This is the one that they should have done before it is, basically, in addition to having the auxiliary center, tanks in what is the cargo bay. They have put a rear center tank outside the cargo bay structure. They've also up at the landing gear to make it a heavier of as a of maximum takeoff weight, which gives it more fuel range changed around some of the flaps. But the basic aircraft really sill is the eight hundred hundred Neo.

But all flying under the same brand EasyJet, Switzerland as even a different. Etta codename, easy is the one here in the UK or U2.. Well, yeah, exactly. One of them is this wis branch.

So they've been teasing it and revealing parts and videos of the repaint process last couple of days, and what we've seen so far doesn't look super dramatic. It's more like I'd say a re probably going to be a refrence of the existing livery rather. Than a totally new clean sheet. Livery? Yeah. I mean based on the they put out a video on Monday. And it said that there was kind of like showing the painting process and the painters working and one of the scenes that they had in that video was they had someone working on the tail and they had a schematic of what the tail is supposed to look like at the end plastered on the tail and.

I was talking with Jason Rabinowitz has been on the shelf you times about this actually earlier today with holidays like this like I always liked working and not taking them as vacation days because there was nothing happening and basically. Yeah, had to be there. But a basically vacation day that I was just sitting around for. I'm totally with you. I used to do that all the time. 'cause you know, one of my not celebrating Christmas. It was nice everybody else was like. Wow. So generous of you, Mike, right Sherwood, ever get out of my way, off his all genetic generous and noble, Mike.

They are just investing in they show company that would be buying them. Oh and only investing a certain amount not full control. It's important to not have full control say, the sounds really complicated. It is it's stupid. Can you explain when your goals to screw your flight attendant union, you kind of have to do things that are complicated? I got you. I mean, I understand where the screw screen comes from. But I understand that it would be you can't have mainline find tend to work regional fights just because the cost basis. Right. But the union has a contract that says if there's any flights operated by like, I forget the exact phrasing. I'll try to pull up over here, but essentially any flights operated wholly or materially by United have to be worked by United flight attendants. I like to know who agree to that. I'm which side on the United side initially. Yeah. To the extent. Here's the quote to the extent permitted by law. The company will recognize the union as exclusive bargaining Representative for the flight attendants on any commuter airline, which it establishes or purchases in whole or insignificant part upon recognition the union.

I may be sleepwalking through this particular podcast. Oh, wake up. I have my Cup of coffee and ready to go. As really what you're drinking guests coffee.

Few days before me. So it's so that you would finally give up the flight simulator. And I could have a term exactly it was. That's why most uneventful flight. Yeah. My flight was empty on the way home. It was packed on the way over I guess because we were there for for the week preceding museum, actually, and we left before the Nobel ceremonies wrapped up, and so no one wanted to leave Stockholm in and I had an entire row, not not just my seat and the seat next. But in entire role of eight hundred thirty two myself sounds profitable. Well profitable for me, perhaps not the airline. But you know, that's that's all the others. They to me is to make sure that you have been awarded some sort of profit that profit was in the form of extra seats. I got the full can of the ginger ale or whatever. But so we are recording on the nineteenth of December. And the current news. Is that there is possibly maybe could be might be a couple of drones flying over Gatwick and over two dozen flights have diverted. And now Jason you made a good point. Is that the story kind of started about two hours before retiring now everyone's still diverting their magic drones mayhem. Your typical Degi drone only has battery life of like twelve to twenty minutes. So someone like finding a drone landing at swapping batteries. Putting it back in the air over and over and over for two hours. I don't really fully comprehend. What's going on here? I don't either but flights are still diverting. So obviously, there's something happening there something there's no significant weather at all whatsoever. Quite nice, actually, the weather in general is poor.

"The last two people to check in or by two and the last two people to check in was a family of four that they were gonna have to find a way to split up. And I d be some people. So I be grudgingly took the bump. But I had to get back to New York very early. The next morning is opposed to that night because we were having for dinner, and I had a lot of cooking to do. And we ended up sort of having the conversation and in their system one of the routes. I suggested was via Boston 'cause there was an Air Canada flight to Boston. And then I think the shuttle early morning and be done in actually helped me put this trip together the fixed. Thank you for that. And they saw their screen where it was like do not send reroute to Boston. We don't have any hotels here. And they did it anyways. And it was in that at that point. It was like a supervisor came over. And I said you can have my seat for the music twelve hundred dollar bomb and reroute. But only specific rebound, otherwise, I'm getting on the plane, and the employees the regular Gaijin didn't wanna do it. And the supervisor overrode he's like what it says don't do this. She's like, yeah. That just means. We don't have any negotiated greats. I'll make some phone calls on spoken room. Yeah. And ended up paying data painful freight at the Hilton for me by that because there were rooms available there just weren't any discounted rooms available. So they in some cases, they do have access to that type of data. But I have to think also like if you're diverting triple seven with a couple hundred people on board like in the northeast finding that many rooms anywhere is gonna suck. And they ended up putting up in the first class lounge. I think temporarily will they try to sort out where people were gonna go. Yeah. I mean shit. I was in Heathrow a couple of months back and had problems with my boarding pass on an inner line flight standing at the American counter waiting to in transit. We didn't get my new boarding pass. And saw like written down on a piece of paper across the counter that one of the flights back to the states canceled and they put everybody up in like they hired four buses input. Everybody hotels at Luton. Holy crap. Oh, yeah. So, you know, it's. Diversion? Right. So they didn't have a choice necessarily, but it was pretty. You know? It's funny. We talk about London. I friend of the show Jason Rabinowitz who had on the show few times, he posted some pictures from Heathrow of immigration and transit that is a nightmare. Lately. It seems like and that was really bad apparently. Yeah. I think he was in five because he was lying pictures do five to me. Yeah. It looked miserable. And by the way, the brake problem started in savannah. Or up the coast got from Orlando to savannah, you see it's circling off the coast of South Carolina, Georgia border before went to JFK there were trying to divert adults. And I know they have staff it JFK more, but Dulles for Charlotte, Charlotte's lake right there. Even Atlanta wasn't that far. And you know, you'll get a triple seven party Landau. You think would really give them one? Sure. Delta needs them in P through once in a while. Remember, the situation Seattle were delta like gave emerets apartment took it back here. But that was also in America. I wasn't European airlines. There. So anyway, interesting stuff, I I had an experience with Alaska at SFO a couple of weeks ago where I got the late about three hours because of a minimum equipment list item that was broken and Alaska had no idea how to fix it was urging America plane a-3 nineteen and there is three nineteenth sitting around. But they loaded about ten of us onto the plane. And then we sat there for forty five minutes. Like, yeah. You have to get off. And then we went back to the counter, and they're like, okay, we're gonna try to fix it. We're gonna try to find the part and no-one found apart. So then we had to wait for an inbound that wasn't too for another hour. It was just it was really kind of it was kind of ridiculous because there was so disorganized..

And a lot of interesting stuff happened there. Let's let's dive right into the expert. We'll get to some of the other stories that happened this week a little bit too. But there were some interesting developments I would say, you know, it's always a question of how much stuff is gonna happen any of these trade shows, but what did you think in terms of like sort of exciting anything? Was there anything there that you thought was actually worth talking about from something we're actually gonna see something that's really gonna affect passengers. I mean, really this show is a lot smaller than a accents. I feel like this year was more incremental updates than it was new products or something revolutionary, even ever Lucien ary, say shrinking laboratory, three inches, right? It yet deal. Aviation has the lab that is going on Americans refurbish eight, three, twenty families. So your ex US Airways, three or three? Twenty three, twenty one's and they have this new lab. That is a mere thirty one inches wide. And if you're familiar with the space, flex love you might find on the where do you find those on the back Jeb lose eight, three twenty one and Lufthansa group has 'em flying. British Airways has space flex. I believe lying on its retrofit three-point fan. I mean, the moral of the story is Asia. They're all it's, it's not great, and I think that's been very quite in respect to them. They didn't try to spin it this, and we have a labrador thirty one inches wide. And that's, that's that this guy was actually complex. So what do you think he's like small. The way to spend it. It's a laboratory that takes up several inches of less than its competitors and you can maybe fit inside of it. Maybe maybe if you line up, right, and sort of some people simply not fit in it. The I think that's sort of significant point here is there will be a decent number passengers who do not fit. Also, one of the interesting things about it is, you know, it's only three inches smaller, say, what is? Why would you do something that only gets you three inches of space. But it's that combined with removing interest face from n. number of rows and putting sort of slimmer seats in you actually end up with an extra row seats on right, which is a big deal for the airlines, passengers you're not getting those difference if you fl- any modern seven, thirty seven. You've basically seems extremely similar already in terms of the legroom in whatnot. Why? Or just. It's similar in size to the now. Rockall Collins formerly be aerospace lab. That's on the seven, three seven's max and delta retrofitted onto its seven, three, seven hundred, nine hundred. So yeah, it's know it's it's out there. A lot of people are flying. It. Well, in general, these tiny livens they suck. Yep. They're not great, but they're not intended to be great. Third tended to save space frame in extra Hafer single row, and that's that. It's interesting to me. One of the things I keep sort of thinking myself as we talk as we look at these labs getting smaller is historically it was sort of considered acceptable to have small labs on single-aisle airplanes because you're flying three, four, maybe five hours on board. Yep. And now we're seeing them fly off the Atlantic Ocean. Yup, flying across the Atlantic. Aerolineas Argentinas is using it from all the way from, I think, Puerto Rico way down south attained a seven plus our flight. So these putting him on the cope gotta set to and they're using them. I mean is an interesting, right? COPA did a really nice job. They put flat bed seats up front, but on their new max, they got a premium economy section than solid legroom. It's not only two seats on the instead of three, but it's a nice space. But then also, I actually don't know what labs they put in, but I would guess there. Smaller ones, I would guess so. But they've also saying they're going along plates. They've also taken at the CPAC EFI on that gun to streaming. So you premium cabin gets bit nicer economy gets a little less nice the way the world, right?.

"Hello Jason Rabinowitz here were up to number forty where can we reach middle age. Wow. Did we have a party? We did. Yeah. Remember, we talked about last time with this emphasis in the yard near you didn't get my balloons, neither all the balloon drone never made it. We're going to be in trouble with the FAA got shot down. So we're over the East River. The future is bleak. Any number though, good? We're up to forty. I've listened to forty seconds worth of it. But that's good. You know, what I'm surprised we got that far into it. So I had where I was missing. So just checking in on everything. Yup. Checking in make sure everything runs smoothly. My well. It went smooth issue. But we we muddled through and you're back for this one. I am indeed. And it's been a busy couple of weeks in the airline industry. And it's going to be busy couple couple of weeks in the future. You just book some flights, and I've got some flights coming up. So where you headed? I am going to London. And then Rome and Milan because why not well, we had some good discussion about where you should go. And you're going to London for for work thing. That's right. So I'm going to London and arts already done. I'm in Europe. So Mars will take some time often go. Somewhere else in Europe since that the hard part of getting to Europe is done some lengthy debate on the Twitter about where I should go in a hundred like fifteen responses later, I said screw them going Abeille or pasta. That's I mean gooders travel. These days is dictated by what food. I will. Eat went to Chicago to visit you the hotdog, right, right? Clearly, I mean, I was just a vehicle quite literally too literal vehicle to get me to hot dog. So that's a role I'm willing to play. Right. And in this case, there will be some pasta, and you probably won't have to have anyone drive anywhere. Probably I hope and if they do it'll be in one of those tiny little cars, thank it gets paid a pasta. That is often. My you know, when travelling I if if the vehicle will take me to food, I'm willing to go that route all I needed to hear excellent. Well, I hope you enjoy your travels, and I'm looking forward to hearing a little bit about why you're gone. Going to London in our next episode. When are you going first week of sober, which is oh day or two after I go up to Boston for an industry conference, though? I've got a couple busy weeks coming up, but I'm not fighting there taking a train, which is my well, I mean in trains from to some times. I mean, they are a firm believer in that that east coast shuttle routes between Boston New York and DC have no need to exist that everyone should be doing that on train anyway. So I'm sticking to that philosophy. All right. Well, good luck with that. And I hope everything goes well, but we'll hear about that. In a couple of associates, hence, our podcast as everyone who who's listening the day that it comes out knows that it comes out on Friday,.

"I'm a huge fan of blue the product and the service, both hard and soft product are excellent. But I think I may have mentioned this last year. There's something about the tone of voice, which is just the needs work. Like if somebody handed me that branding project. I would be all over it. Because it it's a little bit of something. It's it's just a bit too dad jokey obvious, the some of the some of the writing, but anyway, that's such a microscopic detail in what is otherwise really good experience. Interestingly this is the point I'll end on Jason Rabinowitz who's at airline flyer following if you don't he's always got great stuff. He noticed in his always quick to point this out that jet. Lou have the worst on time performance of most of the American majors for some inexplicable reason both my flights were on time. If not really so I don't know if it's just out of JFK, which then that explains it in and of itself, but there's something there that they need to work on clearly well go I really hope to fly them something that we said the very first episodes. There's this long setting plan for them to fly international. I mean, the already do because he go to the Caribbean. But we really hope that a some point they will fly to London. It would be great because that product is absent. Lutely perfect for that route needs competition. I don't think I've actually mentioned again, these tend moose revenue heavy routes of less time. I don't think I mentioned a numbers when we said to be held the number one spot for that Heathrow to JFK it's more than a billion dollars in revenue. So it means there's room for other guys. I mean, I don't know. I'm sure there is I hope there is this should be we'll talk if we have time we'll talk a little bit of a Norwegian limit later. Because one piece of news recall since we can't do an episode about the US without mentioning the bat story about each of the airlines, I'm going to try not to spare. I'm just gonna say one good story about tip loop because unlike United sorry because I know that some people probably love United where at least appreciate them. And we don't always. But unlike United that kill the dog jet, blue saved French bulldog. It was a month ago. Probably just when you had arrived in California was French look very cute dog if you're into dogs that started turning blue. So it was not a breathing. And yeah. In to the provided came and used the same material, you know, the season bottle that you would use on a passenger give him some hair big making you feel great making sure everything is alright they were ready to divert a plan in case they had to they didn't have the end. Then of course, excrete PR didn't do that for PR VC. But it's this is how people would react like being kind. And. Yeah, all the other passengers were enough. I mean, it was a great story. There's a little video online nothing. There was like a few photos of French bulldog with the with the mask on his nose. Very cute stories. Exactly all that ends will. And all that. And it's really rare to hear Becerra about JetBlue. So I've got to mention the three United or a dis or Chicago. Seems to be a lot all over the US is some some reason whether they had more than twelve hour delay, and when people were asking, okay. So what's going to happen because you have to spend a night they denied that. They had to give auto vouchers they refuse to give food vouchers because oh, you know, what? Anyway, it's too late airport. He's almost close then they gave families cults in blankets to see overnight or only that everybody had to be woken up the four AM because airport regulation could maybe that's not a fall of United. But they should have known says that you cannot have any call to blanket after for I am. So they had to be woken up in the clear the entire area that were reserved for them. So this to wait, and they were like, parents and kids and elderly people. And I mean, I don't care if it's our deregulation United. But I mean, if you care about people, you don't treat them like that. I'm. Maybe the hotels were in the area were full..

"I'm Ian PECH Nick joined as always by Jason Rabinowitz. Hello in. Hello. Jason. It's good to talk to you again. Yes. As we knew internet way every other week. But we actually we actually physically interacted in in the in the interim between last episode and this episode we celebrated national hotdog day. Yeah. But I mean, we don't get to see each other nearly as often as we probably should. But those true there were hot dog. So I had to take matters into my own hands and fi- to Chicago has one does. Everyone knows you can't get a proper hotdog in New York. So you have to fly Chicago to do it. Right. I'm pretty sure the city of Chicago created national hotdog day once they realized I was fine to Chicago four hotdogs so Annette chocolate went up as a win. Hey, they had a special on hotdogs. So that that's on the count's pretty good too. It was pretty good survived. I did I've Louis de trip out of the Guardia to Chicago in the morning in the big front seats in had actually a pretty great experience. Like got on the plane. I sat down and two hours later. I got off the mine is the ideal way to fight spirit was like had no bags like getting off. I that's all I did was I got on the plane down. I didn't buy anything. And then I got off the plane. That's it and we were actually early. I think and the fight back. I flew United on a little seven three seven seven hundred in economy. And again, I sat on the plane. I bought nothing. I did nothing. And then I got off. Fine at LaGuardia early. Even though the weather was absolute crap. So auto pretty great and that same flight that you the United flight that went the next day got cancelled it wasn't canceled. But it got in at like two AM. So they met as well have canceled it, but I was very happy to that. The weather camera dei early Earth Day later, we were worried about the hot docs, I won't lie at that. There was some concern about the health toxic. But we got to see each other in in. That's always a good thing. We thought about doing a special hot dog themed episode of the podcast, but we decided against that mostly because we were stuffing our faces too busy..
