Welcome to Airways Deep Dive, our bonus podcast segment in which Airways Senior Business Analyst Vinay Bhaskara and Columnist R take an in-depth look at a key topic in aviation that isn’t necessarily in the news.

This week, Airways Senior Business Analyst Vinay Bhaskara, Columnist R, and special guest Brett Snyder of the Cranky Flier blog (www.crankyflier.com) discuss air service development and changes at LAX (1:17), United’s strategy versus that of American and Delta at LAX (8:15), the Asian market in LA (18:20), and secondary Los Angeles area airports (24:01)

If you do listen to the podcast via ITunes or even if you don’t, please write us a review. That’s the best way to get more people to listen to our show! For a limited time only, if you write a review and shoot us an email (vinay@airwaysmag.com) with a screenshot of your review, you’ll be able to pick a topic for R and I to cover on the podcast. This topic can be aviation-related or something completely off topic (our love lives, however, are off limits).

As we evolve the format of this new Airways feature, we would love your feedback as we look to find the optimal mix. For now, consider this “Podcast Unplugged”. We’ll be adding production value enhancements as we move forward, in addition to special guests and contributors.
