We’re Back! Ed Perkins, Chris Galloway talking Cuba and Mark on Southwest Airlines
Mark and Tom return to KFBK together for the first time since The Travel Guys went on hiatus in November of 2012. Get ready for a information-filled hour.
Guests include Ed Perkins, our writer from SmarterTravel.com. Ed comments on a variety of topics, including the merger of American Airlines and US Airways. He’s followed by Chris Galloway, one of our Road Reporters, who has just returned from Cuba. Chris has a fascinating story to share about a country most of us have never visited.
Finally, Mark opines on the current state of affairs at Southwest Airlines. The airline which used to brag about always being on time now has the worst on time performance of any major carrier. Then there was the situation recently at Midway Airport, a Southwest hub, where 20 planes full of people were stuck on the tarmac for a rule-breaking four hours. A size able fine could be forthcoming. So where does Southwest go from here? Mark has some thoughts.
