My DLD Episode: China Travel, Polaris Pillow Talk and More

This week I join Seth and Stephan on podcast Dots, Lines and Destinations, listen here.

I have listened to DLD since the first episode and got to ask questions of the avgeeks such as “what is a scissor hub?” to “why are you looking at Flight Radar all day?”

We talked about new airline routes to China. Tomorrow starts New York JFK-Fuzhou on SkyTeam member Xiamen Airlines. We talked about trips to Fujian Province and bonus on Hunan Province, which is served by Hainan Airlines nonstop from Los Angeles. Two fascinating provinces less visited by international tourists. If you like James Cameron’s Avatar, you will love Zhangjiajie. I even argue that Delta SkyMiles is the best program for Asia!

Stick around for Delta One and United Polaris side-by-side reviews, 4 Europe flights each in January. Learn about the hot, on demand mid-flight Polaris snack coming back from Europe and the disappearing Polaris cool gel pillows.

I provided show notes on the destinations, and here they are as well:

Fujian Province: coastal province known for seafaring, many ethnic Chinese in Taiwan and around Southeast Asia trace their roots to Fujian and maintain close ties

Hunan Province: traditionally the last culturally Han Chinese region before the lands of ethnic groups that populate modern China’s southwest, lots of history of those borders and famous officials and scholars exiled here; in modern times the birthplace of Mao Zedong
