DLD 161: A Grand Delusion

October 6, 2017

Sorry for the delay this week; had some technical challenges that finally got resolved. The good news is that we kept adding content into the list of stories to discuss. Enjoy!

Among this week’s story:

  • Monarch is finally really out of business, with some interesting anecdotes around the process
  • Air Berlin is killing everything long-haul; EasyJet and Lufthansa are circling to pick up the pieces
  • American Airlines is never going to lose money again according to CEO Doug Parker
  • Qatar Airways is investing in an Italian airline. Because that always goes so well.
  • China Airlines is set to fly between Ontario, California and Taipei in Spring 2018
  • Cal Air/Elite Airways is flying between Las Vegas and Carlsbad, CA
  • Emirates and flyDubai are (finally) getting closer to each other, with codeshare operations starting later this month
  • Turkish booked a big order for 787s; we’re trying to figure out where they’ll all fly
  • Catalonia wants to be independent and Spain is (not surprisingly) opposed to the idea. And Seth is on the way there in a couple weeks. Oops.
