"Dress and apparently he knocked it outside of its cover or whatever it was. But even after the flight attendant said, don't do that. He continued to try and do it. She finally said something like, sir, if you don't follow my instructions, you can stay here. I think he probably got the idea at that point because he moved to the back. But it was fascinating to me that this gentleman would not obey the instructions when the flight attendant told him to stop doing that. And all I can tell you is people, when the flight attendant says something, just do it, you don't want to get thrown off the flight, you don't want to get a fine. You certainly don't want to go to jail. And you don't have to agree with the position of the flight attendant. That's not the point. The point is that on aircraft, some people are in charge and that's not you the passenger. Exactly. This guy didn't understand that. Yeah, I like to joke around a little bit, but man, when I'm with flight attendants, I don't joke around in fashion that could be misinterpreted in any way whatsoever. Yeah, we may joke around, but it's not about the business of flying and sitting and doing this and that and the other. It's going to be about something totally unrelated. All right, one more quick passenger behaving badly story because I mean, this one is also kind of what's incredible. It also involved an emergency exit door. Yeah, so this occurred in Chicago at O'Hare International Airport. So when we first saw this, we thought, oh my gosh, this was rob. Now had he not been in having surgery that day. We might have thought it was. But apparently a person opened the emergency exit door of a moving plane on the runway, confirming once again you can get those tours open in certain conditions. And let's see, there was video shot that showed him opening the door. He then exited the aircraft, which then he, I guess, landed on the wing, and then from the wing jumped down to the tarmac or slid down there from the tarmac dispatches were heard on the radio, they were kind of stunned at it and went off to ask you jumped off of airplane, dispatch said, he opened the door, we got him on camera. It looks like he opened a back door of the aircraft and walked on to the wing. So this was just before the Mother's Day weekend. And so yeah, I mean, crazy, crazy stuff. Yeah. I know. People, right? Yep. Virgin Atlantic flight aborted after pilot found to be untrained. This was in simple flying dot com. This is a Virgin Atlantic internal training protocol compliance violation, I think, I think it had to do with the first officers still needed final assessment and the captain was not qualified as a check airman. So I guess it was caught after the plane had departed while it was en route and when that was discovered, they turned the plane around and I guess they replaced the first officer or did they replace the captain? You know, I don't recall. I just know that they made a U turn after they were at least an hour or more away and headed back to Heathrow and I think they ended up with a two and a half hour delay on the ground as they were looking for qualified crew members. It's possible they may have timed them both out by doing that so they may have had to replace both of them. Since it's a long flight and they could run into duty time limitations. But yeah, I thought it was kind of surprising and the important thing to note is that both people from a CAA standpoint meet have the experience how the certificates legally can fly the airplane. But the internal procedures require first officers to fly with a check airman before they are allowed to officially be flying the aircraft as a co-pilot. And as you said, turned out the pilot was not a check airman. Now this is not something you usually find out after you take off. And so this really speaks to a major oops in terms of scheduling. And I'm sure the passengers were not pleased. And I can only imagine that they probably didn't tell the passengers the exact truth. We've got a minor distribution we need to return back to Heathrow and you're still safe at all times, but embarrassing at the very least, you have to worry if they got this small detail wrong other details might they be getting wrong. It's like the old joke about the student pilot who was sitting in the airplane waiting for his flight instructor guy jumps in and let's go and they take off and it comes out that the guy is actually a photographer, thought he was being taken out of flight. He's not really the flight instructor. You've got two unqualified people up there. And this wasn't that bad, obviously, but had a slight flavor of that. All right, well, again,.

Fleet retirements spreading far and wide

"Some things are happening a lot of great things. Unfortunately we continue with the theme such as it is in our corn teen state so phase. One of all of this was figuring out what the hell was going on that lasted. I think I WANNA say early. To mid March into April. It was back when we still had a chance of tracking what the Hell is going right. And then April turned into service reductions or finalizing service reductions making them more less ad hoc hall say and figuring out how airlines. We're going to operate in this new environment and then dealing with how to do. We continue to operate these cities. Do we continue to operate these aircraft and things like that and now that airlines have had some time near on two months to SESA situation a lot of airlines have started saying aircraft that where on the way out that we were considering possibly not having flypast date are gone? And the latest. Today is the Virgin. Atlantic fleet is shrinking measurably as the seven. Four seven are gone. They will not fly again. They're parked and they will not be returning and actually that is a bit more than just a seven four Sevens Virgin Atlantic is in dire straits at this point and they have withdrawn from London Gatwick Airport entirely at this point. It will keep the thoughts in hope that when demand picks back up it will resume flights at Gatwick. But who knows when that is? It may or May Not Happen Virgin Atlantic may or may not be airline in a year. I hope it is but we shall see but for now any of those fights that still operate will be operated out of Heathrow instead of Gatwick and don't be a I believe the other day is also said they're axing service from Gatwick so Gatwick not looking too good right now. Is it no? It's not an version saying they'll keep the slots is dependent on whether or not they're allowed to keep those slots so I think that'll be something interesting to watch whether or not that puts be a in a position to maybe get a better deal out of it or if anyone else wants to met jet blue once upon a time would have paid a princely sum for those thoughts but M- assuming those transatlantic desires are no more but we will see in at the same time virgin reaffirmed that it will be retiring. It's eight hundred thirty two hundred that I believe it acquired from the demise of Air Berlin in twenty twenty two as planned. So that's what a ten eleven aircraft headed out. Sizeable Chunk never small fleet and seven immediately. So that's pretty a pretty big drop off and then there's what happened at American. Were pretty much. If it was an older aircraft is grounded indefinitely and permanently retired. Gone are the seven. Six Sevens gone are the seven five seven. Jason I are actually looking into purchasing one. Beer can go on exactly gone. Are the nineties and gone are the CR J two hundreds operated by PSA? So that's another sizable chunk. Yeah none of. This is particularly surprising. The seven six seven fives and Iwo Ninety S. We're all slated to be retired sooner rather than later within the next year or two. Actually I believe we're missing the eighth HR thirty three hundred from this lists. Yes let's see. I wanted to be missing one and we'd get yelled at if we forgot it. So it's seven seven seven five seventy one ninety eighth three thirty three hundred not the two hundred and the CR J two hundred so those were all especially the ninety s and eighty three threes. Those were rumored for years now to be retired but now we finally know for sure those will be parked and almost certainly will not fly again as passenger aircraft. I would say the very good chance. Seven six get a new lease on life as freighters the seven. Fives have no idea. The nineties are interesting. They weren't that but American. Just had no place in. Its fleet for them. So what might happen to though? I do not know some. You went ninety S. The nineties are far too young to join the Pech mortar fleet. I mean we don't really look at anything beyond debates at this point. I look forward to the introduction of this seven to seventy or fleet one day one day. We'll get there. Were still a four engined for all as I like to say interesting so yeah American also recently last year. If you listened to the podcast you know that they retired the the mad dog the eighties with a huge amount of fanfare out in. Roswell these aircraft will not be getting such a party or celebratory retirement. Unfortunately the the tone this year is a bit different Disney it. It's a single line in a press release is what it is and maybe that's okay these days. I don't know there will be no party. Just a somber press release. Meanwhile north of the border up in Canada Eric Cannata will be retiring. Seventy nine aircraft including the seven six seven eight three nine thousand nine hundred and the e one ninety all of which are out. Oh no fleet immediately. Love No love for the ninety. Well no I don't know if the seven six seven in the eighth nineteen out in Malibu just ninety out immediately yours is unclear to me is being reduced anyway and yeah but this is particularly interesting because the seven six seven is rouges. Only wide-body aircraft rouges Air Canada's low costs unit so this affects rouge pretty hard. The bulk of its fleet is eight hundred. Nine thousand nine hundred seven six seven. They also have some three thousand three twenty ones but this will leave. Air Canada without a wide body fleet to operates mid haul and long haul flights especially transatlantic. So I don't know what happens to rouge in the future. Does it limit to just North American flights and the Caribbean? Or what? Well I think two things one. I'm not sure that the seven six seven hundred nineteen phase out effects rouge entirely. Oh it does that. It's that literally. Okay if you add the numbers up it is every facet. Every three nineteen equals Air Canada. Plus ruse got it so in that case. Here's what I say to you. Air Canada said that they're going into hibernation mode for three years. I mean they've been not terribly optimistic. Run off with. I mean but I think it's going to serve him. Well I really do. I think it's going to serve them. Well they're coming out with their. I forget what they branded it but cleaning promise and how they're sanitizing the yeah. Yeah and so. I think that in these times perhaps pessimism is warranted. If not only because it's probably a more accurate sentiment but I think that it sets you up for being pleasantly so I would much rather be pleasantly surprised that I have to bring more planes back from the desert than I didn't put enough planes into the desert and now I'm a very curious position. Yeah we'll see what happens. Nobody knows every crystal ball is pretty fuzzy at this point. I mean I think at this point that have all been taken smashed on the floor. I think they're parked out in the bone yard parked at crystal balls out in the desert. A boy anyway in the rundown fleet retirements sustained north. Yeah this is not a huge surprise. Alaska Airlines has decided it will not bring back the eight nine teens. It acquired from Virgin America which it never really wanted in the first place. They never refurbish those aircraft. They were actually still sporting the Virgin America Interior. Those are parked and will not be fine under the brand ever again. Hopefully somebody picks those up one day someone will perhaps explain to me and we can do this on the podcast. Or if anyone just wants to write an email to podcasts two four dot com I will spring for a meal or something if anyone can convincingly explain to me why Alaska Bought Virgin to screw jet blue route network. I mean that just enough reason. It was a fleet. It didn't want interior product. It did not want employees did not want really just wanted to make sure jet blue did not get all of the above guy. Yes so yeah. That's the three hundred are gone but that was probably going to happen regardless and then last but not least I think gun laws. Were missing anything right now. In the last two weeks Qantas Seven. Four seven will not be returning to the skies nor will some of the eight hundred eighty s probably. Maybe they've stopped the refurbishment process on the a three eighty. So there were six done and six to go. They've parked a few the a three eighty S. And so how many of those come back and when nobody knows nope but the seven four seven are in fact done for. That was rumored to be happening when they did there. I think the fly by on their last commercial flight with it that actually had passengers but it will not be coming back so and those were the special seven four seven. Four hundred ers were unique to Qantas. Yeah I mean. None of this is surprising. No but that also means that's the end of an aircraft type. Yeah worlds ahead and thought about it. Take that so. That's the first. It's not just Qantas grounding the seven four seven four hundred. Er they were the only airline that ever had that. So unless some other airline that Baltia maybe picks up four hundred Er. That's it that Avatar Avatar hats right. So I'M GONNA go.

Coronavirus and the impact on airline industry

"Not looking good for Virgin Atlantic. Yes so they announced yes to that. Cutting third of the workforce lots more than three thousand jobs. They've also said that they're going to be exiting Gatwick. Which has been its London base for thirty five years? They are still maintaining that base up in Manchester And this company had already actually been struggling with profitability for several years. So it's perhaps not surprising that they're really facing issues now. The government refused to Baylor saying that I haven't looked hard enough. Other investors elsewhere in the line is basically said that it's now fighting for its survival and that more measures might have to be introduced in the coming months and years and I think the story shows a few things it really shows that the week affirms a feeling the effects fast in an industry aviation industry which is struggling as a whole. And then there's also the knock on effect on airports Gatwick received a COUPLA recently. Be a Saturday causing flights out of their needs. Airports really depend on airlines for these lucrative slots so this is going to be a big problem to several people up and down the chain but there is good news for Wizar- Yes a Wiza- which is one of the airlines which has proved surprisingly buoyant. They managed to keep a large amount of cash surplus which has helped to tide them over during this crisis. And they're actually already. They've already resumed. Flights from Luton to some eastern European countries mainly bringing the seasonal farmworkers for example they brought over about hundred people lost Friday and they will announce that they're going to be resuming flights to Greece and Portugal from around June July to start tentatively taking holidaymakers abroad. They said that they will stop obviously wearing gloves. And now handout mosques to people that they haven't said that they'll be keeping that middle aisle seat free If if there is enough demand to finit they said that there just isn't evidence that that will reduce the risk of Jumps being spread. I mean we're seeing lots of airlines for instance. Klm saying that That they will be saying that. Mosque wearing is absolutely mandatory. But it's hard to see Without that middle seat being taken out how social distance thing. An and virus control can happen on aeroplanes effectively. Yeah I completely agree I mean on one hand. You are just got your. You have people in fairly close quarters in an airplane. The airplanes not going to be redesigned overnight people all within a mutual two of each other. Anyway I think a lot of it will center around. Different cleaning. Practices was the not going to have the magazine. For example so fewer and fewer touch points for people to transmit things and regular cleaning processes and staff updated on those sort of procedures Right well with the with airlines ca beginning to fly again. Airbnb is seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. Tell us more about that. Yes this is an interesting one because AIRBNB They started out their financials. And it's not looking great actually for the company that cussing about twenty five percent of the workforce and their revenues predicted to hard this year. So that's sir drop of about two billion. And but they have said that they they're starting to see a tends to rise in domestic booking so obviously international travel is still looking shaky and wizards one of the few people and Kalamazoo said to start offering this flights but in places like Denmark and the Netherlands. For example people are starting to look into kings and make bookings to travel and holiday within their own country. And I think this ties in with a trend that we're going to be seeing a lot sort of rise of the staycationing this year as people pass aren't quite sure if they're ready to get on a flight or take an international holiday but they do still want to have a break they do still want to get away from from home so this this works with something that airbnb has already been seeing in China which is obviously ahead of the curve a bit from Europe where people are starting to travel domestically and take holidays within the country. Those name quite a little publicity around the fact that there are very cheap. Airfares out there at the moment. And also very cheap hotel bookings But it comes down to what the insurance policy is because we can book holidays abroad or indeed at home But we may very well may have to cancel them exactly. I think there's still so much uncertainty for people you know. I think people are desperate for holiday. It's been it's been really difficult. Few months vote for Europeans and for people all over the world. But it's just not clear whether for example be another spike in cases in your home country or the country where you're going to whether there's lockdown measures will change we'll more travel bans be brought in so. I think people are still waiting to see how things pan out in the next few months.

Why did we talk about Jerusalem the Waldorf? It's a beautiful towel. Unfortunately they don't have a cool but if it's cooler weather other should definitely stay there. Great Redemption and Jerusalem is beautiful and I was very surprised that it's actually only a very short triple Tel Aviv. You could make a day trip but then you wouldn't be able to stay at the waldorf-astoria I said to the King David on it was quite spectacular old.

How to Maximize Points and Miles on Hawaiian Airlines

How to Maximize Points and Miles on Hawaiian Airlines

"Just had the opportunity to interview Hawaiian Airline's CEO. Peter Ingram Got a really great story and you know makes you feel warm and fuzzy about the airline. Especially since they're celebrating their ninetieth birthday this week but with you I I wanNA talk about tactically. How do you use Hawaiian Airlines miles? How'd you earn them because their product is pretty good these days? But it's not so in order to to redeem especially in business class so let's get into the fundamentals. What are your overall thoughts on the Hawaiian Airlines Loyalty Program? Well generally speaking thing. You know. Hawaiian Airlines since they don't belong to a one of the major alliances they have struck individual partnerships with select carriers. And unfortunately when you compare them to the likes of say in Alaska Airlines there isn't a ton of value to be had there They did just go through an award. Charts adjustments where they shifted not directly to dynamic award pricing. They now have up to eight different tiers of awards so eight different prices that you could find on economy tickets and and some pretty high award rate so there is some value to be had. But it's really important to compare the number of miles you'd need for an award ticket with the actual cash price to make sure it's a a decent redemption in if you want to say you have some Hawaii Miles. How do you top up your account to transfer into what programs transfer into Hawaiian so you can entrance them from American Express membership rewards? That's probably the best option because a actually run transfer bonuses in the past in fact just earlier this year September October they had a twenty five percent. Bonus offer there. If you're sitting on a lot of Mary outbound void points. You can also transfer those. That's traditional three to one ratio. And then you've got five five thousand miles extra for every sixty thousand points that you transfer so those are the two options that you have to kind of top up your Hawaiian account and and I think it is important to note that Marriott transfers can take awhile and what they have. I think one hundred eighty thousand points a day cap which sounds like a lot. But you know when you're only getting twenty thousand for sixty thousand points. That's not a whole lot of point at seventy five thousand Hawaiian miles. If I'm doing the math correctly. Yeah with the bonus yes exactly and you know and when you look at some of their award rates I mean a one way first. Class ticket from the west coast of the United States to Hawaii frequently comes in at eighty thousand and miles. There is a lower tier forty thousand miles but more often than not. It's that eighty thousand miles. So yeah definitely something you want to take a look at the pricing before you commit to the transfer I mean. How much are those tickets? How much is a one way? I cost ticket from. La To Honolulu on their eight three thirty like on average price. Would you say like. Is it worth it to use those eighty thousand for that or are you not really getting much more than one cent per you generally wouldn't be getting a whole lot more than one cent per point you know. Especially if I was looking at the difference between transferring my Amex points I get such value out of Amex point through other transfer partners like British Airways Adios or air candidate Aero Plan. So if you you can find an award at forty thousand miles for first class absolutely positively jumping it. Those are quite rare for eighty thousand. Miles you definitely would wanna look at the pay ticket even if it is a couple thousand dollars to three or four thousand dollars for that ticket That's a lot of miles to use for a what is really early from the West Coast is a relatively short flight. And how is award availibility from their New York to Honolulu competes. JFK Honolulu competes directly with United's Newark McDonald Lulu on a on a seven sixty seven. Although Hawaiians product is way better than the United Seven. Sixty seven in my opinion well on the one hand The the Nice thing is that having these additional tiers of awards is that oftentimes you can find award availability. It's just similar to Delta in that. It's a frequently. Uh Not really affordable. So if you're talking about that low level Forty Thousand Mile Ticket. That's going to be relatively scarce from the east coast if you're talking about JFK. Hey or the the flight from Boston that they launched a recently the next tier amount for a one way first class ticket is one hundred thirty thousand Hawaiian Miles. So that can can really take a lot of your Points away if you're transferring for Marriott or from Amex and if you are going to pay for a ticket does it make sense you know. Say you're GONNA bite like the bullet book. A family of four and first class spending five thousand dollars. Does it make sense to Bank Hawaiian Miles to Hawaiian program. We value their points at what point nine cents disappoint or should you bank those points to partners like Korean or virgin or even jetblue. Yeah I would personally recommend not banking them to Hawaiian the two on the list. That I personally really like would be virgin. Atlantic's flying club or the jetblue trueblue program Virgin Atlantic has some really great partner redemptions Jet Blue is revenue base but flies all over the US. So it's relatively simple program to at least get Kinda mid level value out of I personally would rather there have point sitting in one of those accounts then Hawaiian Miles. That might potentially not get used. Just because they're a war charts aren't truly that

Thomas Cook Collapses, Leaving Thousands of Travelers Stranded

"Thomas cook boy gone ways zombie also yeah not quite gone but not not really flying selling tickets no one really knows why it's yeah pardon my french a leseur is gone and adria airways is going going man it it has been a week you know that typical gift from the movie airplane the guy sniffing glue yup it it's it's been that kind of week it's been a very very long week for european airline and everything so from the top thomas cook over the weekend this past weekend the warning bells were starting to the warning bells of bengal offer for quite some time yeah the writing has been on the wall for thomas cook for quite some time and they were hoping to get a last minute deal to the salvage everything i think two hundred million in pounds or euros a much which but unfortunately that did not happen yeah so so the there was a refinancing agreement recapitalization agreement the they had agreed to for nine hundred million pounds and then almost the last minute the banking partners partners that they were working with asked for an additional two hundred million pounds and dow is just too much so come monday at two AM local time thomas cook look UK stopped stopped trading effectively stopped everything stopped everything was was dissolved the airline flights that were in the air continued and the u- united kingdom's civil aviation authority began what they're terming the world's largest peacetime repatriation effort yes so the UK has has a particularly on bankruptcy procedure would basically win a company declares bankruptcy that's all she wrote that's it all activity stops nothing goes on business business comes to a complete close as opposed to the elsewhere in the world like the US said every airline almost every airline has been through a reward our chapter eleven bankruptcy at some point to get their financials and debt in order and they keep operating on but in the UK you declare bankruptcy that's it you're done and it got to the point where it was literally there was a fight in the middle of were about to begin boarding at JFK this was the last flight out of north america for thomas cook for today the bags have been loaded on the plane there was a gate agent they were just about to begin boarding and that's it went out of business no no fight for you yeah i mean in even if it's to the credit of the UK CA they got those folks on a plane with i think what was it a six hour delay the flight was supposed to take off at ten pm for thomas cook and they ended up taking off at four AM which is an annoying delay but no worse than your every now and again norwegian fight i guess so i mean all things considered your airline going out of business typically you don't get to fly home that day on a plane so that was really well done by them in this case they happen to position and atlas air seven four seven four hundred already at JFK i don't know why it took so long to get things going 'cause aircraft there for twelve hours ahead of time but the the mere fact that they got out the same day extremely impressive in the the repatriation efforts by the UK CAS been no less than in a vast array of airlines you may or may not have heard of before did there so there's the ones that are most notable probably league for the virgin atlantic british airways they are putting passengers on their existing flights out of the US putting people into what would have otherwise been empty seats in getting them home for folks in europe there are all sorts of random charter carriers euro-atlantic hi fly develop free bird privilege style danish air transport get jet atlas global olympics which is actually operating an ex monarch eighth hr twenty one as part of the repatriation efforts so there's kind of i don't know what that would unique irony aurigny maybe nouvelair and my personal favorite monolith ero nice i think some of these fights are actually also operated by thomas cook aircraft itself a lot at the peak summer season thomas cook uses are either wet or dry leases aircraft from other airlines paints in their own livery so you'd never know those aircraft flying right so there's two airlines that were that were operating for thomas cook was smart links out of i the leaves estonia and then the other one is avion express and they are both thomas cook liveried lead aircraft but they are operated by their respective airlines and so they've been continuing part of the repatriation efforts i missed in their high fly i think and i apologize for that but there's also the malaysia airlines eight hundred eighty eight three eighties and then the montero they're operating the three forty six hundred which is a former eddie had aircraft ad is a sweet ride for when your airline goes out of business so some folks getting not to put a a light touch on it but some folks are getting a an improved experience somewhat to get home but it's still a terrible situation in in that goes without saying anything about the fact that you know tens of thousands of people are of work but it's been really good to see other airlines and in the UK and train lines and all sorts of service service businesses say if you worked for thomas cook you know were hiring here's a special page tell us what you do what your qualifications are and we'll see if we can bring you over as quickly as possible so that says something we've seen in the past when when an airline goes bankrupt but it's good to see that hopefully a large number folks who who working for the airlines will will find a place somewhere else now really unfortunate or a lot of very very very passionate people working for thomas cook which is a very historic brand the airline wing of the brand may not be the oldest in the world but thomas cook travel is brand itself has a lot of history history and it's really disappointing to see it kind of all evaporate overnight

Airlines Planning Their Futures With The Possibility Of A Third Runway At Heathrow Airport

Airlines Planning Their Futures With The Possibility Of A Third Runway At Heathrow Airport

"Seven years until the first aircraft are due to be cleared for takeoff on Heathrow's plan third runway and such has been the history of the project this may be an optimistic estimate this does not stop airlines planning for it however not least Virgin Atlantic which has announced that it hopes to use an expanded Heathrow to service eighty eighty four new destinations thirty five of them long-haul including Sydney Lima Calgary Beijing and Buenos Ayres joined with more on this by LS Taylor Asia editor at the aviation analytics firm CERIUM LS seriously. How much mileage is there in an airline planning for what it's going to do with Heathrow's food runway well you could sort of say that Virgin Atlantic really getting out there ahead of the runway and trying to stake a claim for for a number of thoughts that would really been up quite a number of new routes for them and bring a lot of competition to the Heathrow market but you know it's a long way out and there's a lot of water that has to pass under the bridge a before the runway actually gets going and be to make sure that they actually get the slots that they wouldn't eight to operate all these flights. It's a pretty ambitious claim and bold putting it out there but I guess you have to start somewhere and then going hard so is this basically politicking by Virgin Atlantic. They're throwing down a market here very much so and really what they're attacking is the way that slots are allocated Ed. Hey throw the current logic sort of says that when the new runway opens and opens up a bunch of new slots for flights to come in and out is it they'll probably followed. Loyd the same way that they allocated and then that sees British Airways of course control a bit over half the slots there so be has been planning on taking a quite a lion's share of that so we've also saying that other airlines like Easyjet have shown some interest in to Heathrow if those slots became available so that have to pull up quite a coup to get all these additional also they would need to launch all these routes and then there's other things with the agreements between the United Kingdom and other Asian countries with actual slots from the other countries to fly there too so lot to sort out well you invoke the the name of Virgin Atlantic's Great Nemesis British Airways is is this staking of acclaimed by Virgin Atlantic something that should be seen within in the context of rivalry. I think that's a large part of it but the other big driver is that one of the big companies behind Virgin Atlantic apart from Richard Branson his Delta Airlines and since Delta bought a forty nine percent stake in the airline. They've really gone about who expand it and push it into different markets obviously tying up with Delta's network in the United States but Delta also has greg global ambitions and I think what we're seeing a bit here is Delta of pushing virgin to become part of that more global network that they're looking to build you should we therefore Frantisek county new or counterclaim by British Airways or or might they rise loftily above it. Is this one of those rivalries that matters rather all the more to the small participant on the larger one. I think in this one that British Airways again to probably fight back quite what quite strongly on that we've already seen some comments from the parent company. IHOP essentially saying that vision has a number of slots releasing out to other airlines. I want they using those I I think there's going to be very much a scramble on offer win. These thoughts do come available not only with the eye but with other foreign airlines as well who would like to increase capacity to throw so it'll be interesting to see what bonfire emerges at that time. What is the current thinking among airlines on. How likely the third runway actually happening is? I think a lot of airlines are quite hurtful but many airlines have also have been through this process any number of times. I think the third run wise been talked about for certainly as long as I've been in the industry that's been quite a while. Oh and with you politics being the why they are not that I'm any expert on that Boris Johnson of course famously put forward the Boris Laurus oil and alternative to to Heathrow while back so I suspect it might be hard to to get through but the reality is at the same time that Heathrow does need the additional runway needs the capacity and not doing so really hurt the economy of London mean all the things that could still happen to stop it from happening joining not too sure on the specifics at this point in time it it does look like it. It will go ahead but having said that we've been through that a few times before where it's been given the clearest indication that yes everything is going through and then something upsets the plan and it gets pushed further down the road. It's a I wouldn't necessarily rule out that happening again but really it is kind of you could actually passed the crunch point now. we act which this needs to be built. You made a brief allusion their to the current state of British politics and the B word does affect infect almost everything the thing is there any doubt in aviation circles about whether or not the fact of Brexit might have an impact on Heathrow as an important air how or do people just take the for granted as part of the architecture travel it has been something that has caused a bit of angst previously for a lot of airlines and I'm trying to work out how things will work pice brexit world. It seems that that angst is largely been assuaged that most airlines have their structures sit up to to work with you. Have that will work I think it's inevitable that even though brexit could cause some economic disruption that London will still be a city that lots of people will visit. It's going to be a place where people connect between North America through the rest of Europe and Africa and other continents so inevitably Heathrow itself itself. I think still has a a lodge harold apply now. Let's tell thank you for joining us.

"The flight will be hosted by Netflixing own tightest Burgas who many knows an actor who starred. And so on so forth. So the flight apparently will see activities and entertainment, reminiscent of a night on Christopher street itself. And apparently the all of those working the flight will be LGBTQ. Go ahead. So what did you write wanted you right on your Facebook page? I'm just not interested in that. I notice a lot of people were interested. So I said it's not for me. Entertainment. I think it's even maybe compromising, you know, violence safety and I got a flak of role. Why do you think it's compromising your safety? Well, because I, I know the industry, I involved with the transportation industry. And again, if you want a top rated crew you wanna top rated aircraft. You know. Listen. If they're no look. I mean, let's be honest. There is no question there. Rega- pilots. They'll question that they're a gay flight attendants. Cetera. So I don't agree with you on the safety issue. I don't agree with Virgin, Atlantic undoing this, the whole the whole, we'll they have suit will they have on black history month and all black staff. This is what the left does. They divide the they call it. They call it inclusivity, but that's because there are willing. It's not inclusive at all right? Because you're not gave can't be part of that particular all all year on Virgin Atlantic. Whatever your sexual orientation, you could be in the cockpit. Or you can be a flight attendant. Correct. But one day you can you have to be lesbian gay LGBT, lesbian gay, bisexual, transsexual, or queer, or questioning whatever the Q is that moment. Otherwise, you can't be. So it's exclusive, it's not inclusive. It's X-clusive like black dorms seventy five at least of our colleges. I don't consider that in advance. But it certainly what does it let lumber? We're going to show you how progress shows you how the left dominates the society. Because half the society is not thrilled with what Virgin Atlantic is doing data. Give them. But I mean can you imagine if they had, let's say, can you imagine Virgin, Atlantic said today, our entire crew will be bible based Christians? I think I think virgin might well go out of business. If they did that this shows you the, the. The vice like grip that the left has on society. All righty, David in Manhattan, New York. Thank you for calling. Last week, you said that you disagreed with certain. Been decisions in the bible. Did you say bidding decisions in the bible? It wouldn't be in the bible. Right. Okay. Okay. So I'll give you give you give you one example that they have ended a date to the Passover says in the bible at seven days they ended a day. What's the, the reason doesn't hold?

Bouncing Back from Rejection

"Was just starting my career. I knew that to one day get tenure I had to be productive publish or perish. So early in grad school, I started submitting research papers to top journals the first one got rejected. So did the second experts in my own field were telling me that my work was not good enough. I wondered if I should drop out I've been working on a third paper. So I decided to give it one more shot. I spent months perfecting, it got feedback from more than a dozen leading thinkers and shipped it to our premier journal with that one got rejected too. Emailed the editor and asked if I could have another chance he said no that afternoon. In adviser told me to put it away in a drawer for six months and come back to it. Once the painted faded. I was appalled by didn't want to be the kind of person who couldn't face rejection. So I did the opposite. I spent the next three days at my desk in my pajamas subsisting on Robin noodles and take. I wrote the paper and send it back in the editor replied with four words. Dear Adam you win. A few months later. I had my first publication in a prestigious journal, the editor told me he didn't give me a second chance because he believed in my work. He gave me a chance because he saw me accept rejection. And then use it to improve my work. I ended up publishing plenty of papers. And getting tenure the make your name in the field hasn't really helped. We submit papers anonymously for blind review. And I still get rejected all the time. I've already had two papers rejected this year. One reviewer even wrote you should go back and read the work of Adam grant, dude, I am Adam grant. They're different ways to cope with rejection that can help you get through it. But they're also techniques for handling rejection that can actually make you stronger. In case. It's not clear yet. I'm Adam grant, and this is work life my podcast with Ted. I'm an organizational psychologist study how to make work not sucked in this show, inviting myself inside the minds of some truly unusual people they've mastered. Something I wish everyone knew about work. Today rejection and how it's possible to not just bounce back but bounce forward. Thanks to Hilton. I sponsor in this episode. I moved my entire life across to Manhattan, and I didn't know a soul on the east coast and I- maxed out every single credit cod. Move into my I should he hot sweaty apartment in Manhattan and showed up for work serve. Rob o'hagan was in her mid twenty s she's a native New Zealander and coming from a country where there are far more sheep than people. She'd always wanted to travel. She just landed her dream job in marketing for Virgin Atlantic. She jumped at the chance to work for her idol when I was in college, Richard Branson, and the regional vision ale lines had really ascended, and he just represented such a incredibly awesome anti-establishment view that I just personally really connected with and it didn't take long before Sarah was making waves at virgin, she pitched an ad campaign to Sir Richard himself. And it was a huge. Success? I just thought this is amazing. I can do no wrong. My career's just off to the races. How awesome is this? That campaign led to a big promotion to lead marketing for virgins music division in LA. So I take the job thinking that. I am the shit at this point, you know, I sort of stolman through the door like I've been hanging out with Richard braids. And here I am. This is going to be amazing and a year into it almost a year to the day. I walked into the office. And I still remember sitting down my coffee and popping up my computer. And there was a phone call that said, I should go to my boss's office. You know, when your boss, and your boss's, boss and HR is sitting in the room that it's it's not going to be good.

"Some prominent scientists and bioethicists are calling for a global moratorium on babies created using gene editing methods as NPR health correspondent, rob Steiner reports the calls aimed at preventing anymore. Scientists from misusing powerful new gene editing technologies. A scientists in China stunned the world last year when he announced he had created the world's first, gene edited babies, so eighteen scientists and bioethicists from seven countries are saying a moratorium is urgently needed to try to prevent any more scientists from going rogue, it's important to draw attention to the fact that nobody thinks we should be doing it. That's Eric Lander who runs the road, instituted MIT and Harvard, and some sense simply using the m word moratorium, it's time to use it. We all believe that we shouldn't be going forward and starting off by saying, we should have a moratorium brings important clarity. To the thing. The group says any nation that doesn't already prohibit genetically babies should declare a moratorium perhaps for five years. So the world can figure out how to proceed scientists need time to do more research to see food ever be possible to safely make gene edited babies and society needs time to debate whether anyone should and under what circumstances deciding should we be reshaping the human genetic code requires a water, really careful faud. Can it be done safely, but they're much deeper questions about is there a broad societal consensus in countries to use it at all? And if so for what purposes any country that might eventually decide to allow scientists to create genetic babies should give the public lots of advance notice. The group says maybe two years to debate such a momentous move the call for moratorium is being welcomed by many scientists and bioethicists Francis Collins heads to National Institute. Roots of health, the philosophical and theological consequences of rewriting our own instruction book are sufficiently major that somebody like me who generally as opposed to the idea of moratoriums feels that it's time to stop and look very carefully at the pros and cons and make a worldwide decision. Not to go forward until we have more information, but others while agreeing it's far too premature for anyone to try to make genetically babies right now worry about using the word moratorium, George dailies, the dean of the Harvard Medical School. I'm concerned a moratorium complicates future discussions rather than clarifies them. How long should a moratorium last man who gets to decide how? And when to rescind a moratorium is such a call going to prompt even more restrictive attempts to legislate, the science and prohibit any future clinical work, and maybe prevent the use of gene editing to treat and prevent terrible diseases. Some even worry moratorium would. Backfire and just drive rogue. Scientists deeper underground, rob Stein, NPR news.

And we have probably heard I've definitely heard when you're traveling in different countries not to expect as much ice in drinks. And that has been my experience. Again, I'm totally on board with this. But a lot of people I have a with were not so happy about it. The ice industry makes a cool two point five billion dollars annually. And most of that comes from the prepackaged stuff you find in those like beer coolers in stores shape, the word ice in its modern English spelling dates from the fourteen hundreds which is like a surprisingly long time for a word to have survived in a single spelling. But the sound of the word actually dates back to pro dramatic, which is also just a very long time or have stuck around and left that it is. I also love as is clear novelty ice shaves.

I wanted to put a note in here about refrigerators and freezers kind of mixing in with the physics. But also in a transition sort of way because these are amazing machines that transfer heat from the inside of a box to the outside of that box, thus they regulate the temperature on the inside of that box and keep it relatively low compared with the air around the box. I don't usually think about it. But it really is. Just awesome. Yeah. And it's not only awesome because cold things are fun to eat as it turns out, most bacteria that caused disease in humans that is pathogenic bacteria go into a hibernation of sorts below about forty degrees Fahrenheit, aka four point four celsius wearing they're not reproducing. And that's why we keep our fridges at or below that temperature, however, many, non pathogenic bacteria and other microorganisms can. Can grow at those temperatures and some of them like eating our food as much as we do, which is what causes food to spoil as we've said before on the show microorganisms are eating your food before you get a chance to causing unpleasant flavors and textures, but even they will go into hibernation or maybe even die off when you bring food down to around thirty to in height or zero celsius because that's the temperature at which water freezes and microbes generally need liquid water to survive just as much as we do. For a long time ice cubes weren't just a thing to put in drinks. They were one of the only things that could keep your food safe to eat for more than a couple of hours, and we'll get into the history of that right after we get back from a quick break for word from our sponsor..
