  1. United and British airways both have forward and rear racing seats in their business class cabin. I was once on a business jet with rear facing seats and also found the sensation quite uncomfortable.

  2. Your intro music is awesome, which song is that?
    Since your appearance in the Airplane Geeks Podcast, I have become an avid listener of your show. Keep up the great work and thanks anyway for your effort
