Episode Summary

Flight 075. Is the A220 the future of the A320? Boeing marries Embraer (for a fortune). The diplomacy of Russian airspace. KLM offers the worst beef ever (but good pasta). LHR has half of the top 10 highest revenue routes in the world. CDG layover trick (trust us!). 100 days until the new IST opens, it's going to be really tight. Turkish VIP coffee. The best eye-mask of them all. Paul serendipitously meets the BA olive oil provider. Alex praises BA for his flight to SJC. Airlines that you can watch live sports on. It's not coming home.
