A busted trip to Taiwan, busted Rolls Royce engines and an attempt to bust Boeing’s bullying ways are on the agenda this episode. Plus Hawaii and the A330neo (again).
The A330neo is really real. The plane flew for the first time today in Toulouse and we’ve got a report from the festivities. Plus lots of other fun chasing various aircraft across Europe.
Hey, DLD listeners: We need your help, far more than just putting up with our regular ramblings (of which there are plenty in this episode).
Southwest has a MAX 8, PIT has more visitors and soon you’ll be able to spend longer than ever inside a plane. But is any of that good news??
A quick bonus hit this week, covering American’s new routes to Europe and United’s new plan to keep flight attendants happy.
It is important to be comfortable while flying. But maybe getting naked it taking things a bit too far. Fights in the terminal and a nation collapsing are also on this week’s agenda.
A(nother) loyalty partnership is dying and IATA admits it is slightly less relevant in one area. But plenty of new stuff coming to keep us interested.
Hot weather, hot pizza on board and hot takes on lots of other news this week…
How do you fight the clock against viral media? And is there ever really a good time for international action that isolates a country? Plus a new long Dreamliner route and animals on planes.
What’s next for the A380? Delays in opening at Dubai and tracking new jets, too.
