      • Imagine flying, but while listening to a chainsaw the whole way
      • Planes used to make 12 stops between New York and Los Angeles
      • The discovery in the bottom of a well that led to the dawn of the jet age
      • The largest building by volume in the world, and why it’s important
      • Imagine a plane whose wingspan is longer than the first flight (you don’t have to, it already exists, and has for a while)
      • How a Kennedy led the charge to make air travel accessible for all
      • The fierce air war that didn’t involve guns or fighter jets
      • How booze helped conquer the bourgeois
      • Who was the largest liquor distributor in the State of Texas in the 1970s?
      • The advantage that led to the AAdvantage
      • Could finding flights be more like Amazon or Uber?
      • How abandoned carts help fill planes
  • “If I can do one-click shopping for some item that I want to buy from Amazon within seconds and it's done. Why is it taking me hours to shop for air transportation and air travel?”
