Episode Summary

Flight 039. King size bed seats, throne seats, configurable bench seats, new inventions in a world of reduced leg room. How consolidation in the US skies might hurt choice for the consumer. Another smart luggage, one we might actually buy. A quite epic Emirates business class experience. Wow Air will fly you to Snapchat for them. Solar Impulse crosses the Pacific Ocean. The non-story of a drone hitting a plane. The turnaround CEO of Malaysian quits after less than a year.
