DLD 308: Put a title here


We’ve got another live episode for you this week which means the video is probably better than the audio version. If for no other reason than to see a real Ted (RAR!) shirt in action. But if you just want to listen, we can do that, too.

Also in this episode:

  • United announced a bunch of new routes, some of which are more of a stretch than others
  • Basic Economy is selling really well, which might be bad news for airlines
  • Joint ventures are a mess, with the Delta Air Lines/Virgin Australia deal the most recently affected, but does it matter
  • Berlin’s Brandenburg airports is slated to open next month, but at least one lawsuit hopes to adversely affect those plans
  • The 787s continue to face troubles, with several now grounded


For our Patreon subscribers we have bonus content, including:

  • An analysis of what it takes to be a successful airline in this era
  • Debate over the role of Unions in the future of airlines’ financial performance
  • A bunch of Q&A from the guests during a special 30-minute extra broadcast we ran

And plenty more. Enjoy the show!
