Episode Summary

Flight 078. The Etihad experience: 787 Studio, 380 First Apartment, AUH lounges. The JetSuiteX experience: flying private at Southwest prices. Immigration and e-gates in LHR, AUH, MEL. Japan airports can't get a break. The uncertain future of Etihad, from a new strategy to a possible Star Alliance joining (Lufthansa already likes them). The AUH tower. MEXit or not, the referendum. JetBlue confirms Europe, but no timeline. Clear or no Clear. Melbourne love. Remembering Swissair 111, 20 years on.
