I've talked about this on the latest episode, which was released this morning: Podcast Episode 26: Status RunsMatt, 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.
Leon kindly agreed to answer this for you! You can hear his response in Episode 26 (see the link above).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.
I found some nice pictures here, just over a year old now, BER-Airport: Photo Trip Report of Berlin's unfinished Airport - The Mileonaire | Travelling the World, Mile by Mile
Thanks as always for the kind words!Hi Matt
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!
I was very pleased to hear your response on the latest episode I listened to today. I agree with the wife of member 'Revenge' in that I found the episode discussing Mileage or Status Runs rather difficult to reconcile with the current bushfire situation. I realise that there are differing opinions on this subject as demonstrated by another current Thread. I will continue to fly as necessary for business and pleasure but not for the sole purpose of improving my status or achieving sufficient miles for another year of status.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
