Join Carlos, Pilot Pip, Captain Al, Eoin and Matt for this week's trawl through the big aviation related passenger focused news stories.

In this slightly longer than usual show (can't possibly imagine why!!) we discuss low cost carrier baggage rule changes and yet more troublesome passengers who can't hold their drink. and as we spare many thoughts for our many friends and listeners in the US we talk flight advice from the CAA as Hurricane Irma approaches - STAY SAFE EVERYONE!

Although Nev was unable to join us live, he has sent us two brilliant interviews. The first is our latest segment talking passenger experiences with Peter James from 'Shure' then we're 'Turning Left for Less' with Michelle Robson.

Carlos talks to Dennis Neville and John Flynn from when we were all at the 2017 Seething Air Show.

Pip is raising money for an excellent cause with the long suffering Mrs Pip. Please check out http://www.planesafetypodcast.com for more information and if you can spare a few pennies, I know they will be very grateful.

Why not watch us live when record the show (especially when our guests are Al and Pip!) as there are often many golden gems that simply cannot make our 'family friendly' show. Make sure you're following our social media feeds (http://www.facebook.com/planetalkinguk and http://www.twitter.com/planetalkinguk) for details on when we're 'going LIVE'.
