Here at the Traveler office, we wholeheartedly agree on most things: that Summer Fridays should be taken full advantage of, that you shouldn’t let fear get in the way of travel, and that Georgia is a country everyone should visit, like, now. But there are a few areas where the gloves come off and the disagreements fly—and admittedly, most of these are centered around air travel.
In this latest episode of the Travelogue podcast, we decided to explore some of these controversial topics, starting with just how early you should arrive at the airport (“Two hours, always!” No, just give yourself 45 minutes…) and ending with whether or not flying is harder for shorter people. In between, we also disagree on whether or not you should recline, argue about toddlers in business class, and debate the merits—and malfeasances—of helping another passenger jam that stuffed carry on in an already-stuffed overhead bin. You’ll also hear about drinking at airport bars, the right way to hover at a gate, and why an Auntie Anne’s pretzel is the greatest post-security snack on the planet. Have feels? Let us know on Twitter, we’re @CNTraveler.
Thanks to our indomitable host Brad Rickman and to Condé Nast Traveler editors Erin Florio, Meredith Carey, Sebastian Modak, and Katherine LaGrave for the lively discussion. And, as always, many thanks to Brett Fuchs for engineering and mixing. Check back every Friday for the latest installment of Travelogue.
