The Airplane Geeks Podcast is one of my favorite shows and appeals to all those interested in aviation. I highly recommend your listening to the Airplane Geeks because every show is both entertaining and educational. Click on the play button to listen to the show.
In episode 267 of The Airplane Geeks Podcast we talk about airline furloughs and seniority lists, things to think about when considering flying for a different airline, the age/seniority situation and what that means after an airline merger. I also talk about how the Sun N Fun activities support and promote aviation. It’s not just the annual event. Sun N Fun radio broadcasts great interviews year round at Sun N Fun Radio.
