This is a great episode! I am applying for a travel credit card asap.
Bit disappointed with this one – perhaps because it was US centric. I learned some of the hacks from watching “up in the air”. Would be useful to know things like which airlines / routes have WiFi or allow you to keep your device on during take off and landing. Which airlines have USB charging as standard (e.g. Air Canada do)?
Another tip I’ve found (Heathrow Terminal 5) is if you have access, don’t take the priority lane security unless it is nearly empty. Most of the people going through there act as if they have never flow before.
Yeah travel hacking is a very broad topic. We could do 10 episodes on this and still not cover everything. Hopefully we’ll get to these topics at some point.
