On this episode of the Squawk Ident Podcast the crew and I discuss the chaos and adventure we each have witnessed over the past few weeks. From “Winter is Coming” in Texas to rampant flight schedules in the west. Today we discuss the challenges with winter operations, a possible game changer with de-icing technology for the future, engine failures, the longest journey from gate to the hotel van, circling approaches, and much more. All on this, the 71st episode of the Squawk Ident Podcast.
