Imagine this: You are running to catch a flight for business or personal purposes. As life happens, you are pressed for time, or traffic is jammed, or you are wrestling with keeping your family together. Either way, you are scrambling out of your car with baggage in tow, hoping that the TSA security lines are moving quickly. You rush to the gate and can only breathe a sigh of relief when you are seated in the plane. As you compose yourself, you realize that you left your reading material behind, or your batteries on your mobile devices are low and you forgot your charger. You could read the magazines in the back pocket in front of you, or you can listen to a podcast that your airline has provided as an additional in-flight entertainment option! This week, we're highlighting American Airlines, Emirates, and Qantas Airlines, who are providing their own unique take on podcasting and adding value to the traveling experience.
