Upgrd 62: Eyjafjallajökull

Last week we were joined by Damian while he was stranded in BWI awaiting a return flight to Europe during the Eyjafjallajökull volcano disruption. Two apologies are due, first for the late editing and publishing of this episode and secondly for my pronunciation of Eyjafjallajökull. We discussed:

  • Irregular Airline Operations (irrops)
  • What to do when your flight is delayed or canceled
  • When to start rebooking
  • And some overnight accommodation options

Please share with us your irrops stories and let us know what worked in the past for you.

I listened to the podcast twice; thanks for all of the great re-booking and hotel voucher advice.

Are you guys going to a once a month podcast? Loved it when it was weekly or bi-weekly but not when there is so much time in between shows.

Unsubscribed. Podcast is not reliable, sometimes weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or even longer. I guarantee you lose viewers by not having any consistency at all.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your comments and I understand your frustration with our unreliable show schedule. We are recording this week, with our next episode due out on Saturday or Sunday.

We've taken some time off to retool and I'll have some more info to share over the next few weeks.

Still no new episode? How much longer now?
