Those flight writers sure can yak. Anytime, anywhere. They can’t keep their tongues still when it comes to airlines and airliners. This is a good thing, though because some of them are truly knowledgeable. Take, for instance, our colleague Mary Kirby, who writes for us, for Flight International and for our sister on-line service, ATI. Mary’s an expert on in-flight entertainment and just did a podcast on IFE and connectivity. You can listen to it through the link just above. Mary (left) is pretty well-known in IFE circles. Mary’s colleague, whose picture we will not show here, but who resembles a well-known jolly chubby guy (right), was on National Public Radio’s Morning Edition, one of the most listened-to morning shows in the nation. Though not quite as jolly, he was talking about the new federal proposals to limit flights at New York JFK. You can listen to whatsshis name through this link (above).
Mary's blog, Runway Girl, covers IFE and other airline issues. It's read widely and well illustrated.
