Episode 23, World Airline Survey, Airline Podcast

In this segment Sky Talk Radio features its first airline survey of the top ten things left on airplanes by passengers.  Some of these may just the same old things that flight crews see a lot ans some things might be surprise to regular passenger.

10.  Bags, yeah almost not funny but its true what people forget to take with them.  Most of it is fun as they try to come back and swim upstream to try and go back to get them.

9.  Clothing.  The one sock thing, your dryer called and has the other one.  Plus some other gross unmentionables.  (who leaves large Marge’s underwear in the seat back)  Quite amusing.

8.  Children.  If you forget your children, you need help.

7.  Electronics

6.  Snotty tissues.  Please stop this at once.

5.  Water bottles with pee.  It is not an endurance race kids, its public transportation.  Does Greyhound have the same issues?  We just got to know.

4.  Wedding Rings. So ask yourself why someone would take your ring off while they are traveling.  And why would men do this?  The struggle is real.

3.  Food  Its never a gourmet meal for the crew.  So what do you do if you find an unopened item like candy?  Stinky food review.

2.  Full body parts.  People carry spares.  Wigs too!

1.  Sex Toys  Have some pride.

We hope you enjoyed our Airline Podcast.

 

Ken and Kirbs ideal airline:  No seatback pockets, and we will bill you for the items you left on the plane. (how do you think Wall Street would like that revenue generating system?)

Episode 22, What’s In Your Bag, Airline Pilot Podcast

Airline Pilot

Episode 22, What’s In Your Bag, Airline Pilot Podcast

Segment number one is an email question about mechanical delays, your typical airline pilot and why they take so long to fix things.  Of course in typical Sky Talk fashion, there really isn’t a simple answer.  Of course the delicate subject of union airlines verses non union airlines is visited.  A lot of people really don’t understand the process of what is actually involved for the problem to be fixed and getting the passengers underway to their destinations.   Of course are all pilots as cool as the Sky Talk Radio airline pilots,,,,,err…no

This is followed by “What’s in your bag?” which is a very funny look at the cockpit conversation that occurs when two pilots whom have never left, meet for the first time.  So what happens when one airline pilot is “Captain Eclectic”?  A Sky Talk exclusive story of course.  We also would like to convey the total dismay and disdain for anyone who elects to bring a drone to the hotel pool while on vacation.  Do you have a funny story that you would love to hear on STR?  We would love tell it so just go to the top of the site and click submit a story and send it to us.  (any coincidental facts of this story that could be misconstrued to actual events are purely unintentional, no laws were broken)

Who are you flying with?

Flying Podcast

Episode 21, Flying Podcast, Things that Go Pop

Do you like a flying podcast or aviation podcasts.  In this episode of Sky Talk Radio we talk about the different noises that occur in the airplane and cockpit.  A bird strike out of Cancun is the first of many noises explored and how loud those noises can sound when you are flying.  Wake turbulence is another interesting noise, which is not really suppose to be a noise (its an event)  There is also the noises induced by Pilots that are interesting and somewhat disturbing as well.  That popping noise was the sudden realization of what just happened.  Other noises include:

bags of chips, empty water bottles, yogurt (rookie pilot), soda cans, oxygen masks, lavatory noises, outflow valves (decompression), protein shakes and windshields.  Plus the disturbing idea of being connected to a defibrillator.

The second part of this episode is an email question for the Captains.

Ever wonder why all the segments on Sky Talk Radio are not the same?  So do we!  Actually we have to take a mixture of stories, email questions and callers to give a mix for the show so that you are not bombarded with the “same ole same ole” every time you listen.  If you have not heard a caller in a while, it usually is because we are trying to mix in the callers with the other segments of the show.

Episode 20, Flight Attendant Annoyances, Sky Talk Radio

Flight Attendant

Episode 20, Flight Attendant Annoyances

In this episode of Sky Talk Radio we talk about what really annoys flight attendants.  Don’t even think about calling them a “Stew”, that’s so old school its not even part of the discussion.  Instead the guys talk about ways that you can get on the good side of your flight attendant. Most pilots would rather talk about themselves, but truth be told flight attendants do all the heavy lifting when it comes to dealing with the public and they never get much recognition.  We would also like to go on record saying that we appreciate all that you do, especially when you have to put up with the pilot group and all their arrogance.  If you have another item to add to the list, please let us know.  We could easily double the length of the episode but instead would rather do a part two podcast with lots more interesting items that only our cabin crews can bring to our attention.

The second part of this episode is titled as “poop slingers”  and as you may have guessed its about weird things people do with their poop.  As Kirbs so elgegantly states “How come you don’t hear about poop at Greyhound?” , the mere fact that it happens on planes means it has to be discussed on Sky Talk.

Emotional Support Animals

Airline Podcast, Emotional Support Animals & Haunted Hotels, Sky Talk Radio

So you probably heard about the whole emotional support animals thing right?  Its the hot topic on the internet since all of the sudden people are a mess and cannot function without their emotional support animals sitting on their laps calming their nerves so they do not fall apart.  How do we really feel about all of this at Sky Talk Radio,,,well we think its a bunch of hogwash and we will tell you why.  Lets not make any bones about this, its about money and laziness.  This airline podcast dives into the real reasons airlines are not cracking down on the abuse of people bringing their pets on board_money.  Below you will find a couple of links to these websites that make it so easy for you to register your pets (for a fee of course) and then you will be on your way traveling with your animal on your next airline trip.  And just to elaborate, are we saying that ALL emotional support animals registrations are bogus?  Of course not, there are the honest people out there that really have a need.  However they are heavily outweighed by the amount of cheats, liars and shysters by a landslide.  Lets face it, if there is a opportunity for people to not have to pay and con their airline out of the fee for a onboard  pet, they will take it.

Why are Pilots so Cheap?, Episode #11

Cheap Pilots

In this episode Sky Talk features:

  • Email question from a flight attendant.  Believe it or not in our 35 years of flying, there are a number of flight attendants out there who think all pilots are “cheap”  So we take a humorous look at maybe why it may seem that way.  Its also a good understanding on the back ground of most commercial pilots and what it takes to get to that position.
  • How Come,  Another fun episode of the “how come” series.  Oh that’s good!
  • Our newest intro and outro music, most people don’t care but, its a lot of fun.
