Matt, as a podcast lover, I was wondering if you could regularly include details of podcasts that you have enjoyed as part of the AFF podcasts? Thanks.
Hi Matt, these podcasts are just great. I look forward to each episode being posted every fortnight.
i have a question regarding Leon’s comments on the Air Chathams podcast about the Amex card. He said if used effectively the $450 travel allowance could be worth up to $700, I am after ideas about how this might be achieved if Leon or anyone else would like to share their ideas.
Many thanks in advance.
Just finished catching up on the December 14 episode, great episode to cap off the year, I've really loved the podcast and hope you continue going from strength to strength in 2020. Speaking of great podcasts, I completely agree with your recommendation of Layovers, that was my favourite aviation podcast before you started this one (and I'm proud to have had some shout outs a few times from Paul and Alex on air!!)
My wife was listening with me to the interview in your last podcast about status runs. She doesn't quite appreciate the concept of a status run as much of some of us addicted frequent flyers, but she did raise a good point about travelling responsibly with regard to the environment. Sometimes travel is necessary, sometimes a holiday is a great treat, but sometimes a status run can feel quite frivolous. We wondered whether you might like to cover in a future episode what the best methods are of travelling responsibly, offsetting carbon emissions and any other strategies you and other expert flyers take to reduce the impact of your travel on the environment. (Especially in light of the recent conditions in Australia)
Thanks and keep up the great work!
Thanks as always for the kind words!
Your wife raises a very valid point, which I have discussed briefly on the latest episode released today - Podcast Episode 27: Indian Pacific & Other Epic Train Journeys
Hi Matt, love the podcast - especially how you go into bat for regular consumers and FFs. Keep up the great work!
Two quick questions - perhaps for the next podcast episode.
1. I know you’ve covered the suddenly excellent availability/value of paid seats due to coronavirus. Is there also good availability of FF award seats now?
2. Since Virgin was losing money before the coronavirus even hit, should FFs with Velocity points be concerned about Virgin’s ongoing solvency and the potential for those points to disappear?
Apologies if these Qs have been comprehensively answered elsewhere.
Good questions. I'll talk about this in the next episode, which goes out on Saturday.
