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).
Lack of power and water are only two of the problems many in Puerto Rico still face a month after Hurricane Maria trashed the island. Getting supplies in is not easy but there are some ways to help with direct support of the area. Operation Puerto Rico Care-Lift is one and Seth is directly involved, running the logistics of the operation for a few weeks. Can you help out, too?
- The Bombardier CSeries takes another 80% tariff. What’s next?
- An Air France 380 made an emergency landing in Canada after losing an engine. That was inconvenient for a few hundred passengers. The logistics of getting it back to Paris are interesting, too.
- Airbus is losing customers for its A330neo line, right as the aircraft is scheduled for its first flight.
- Turkey no longer wants Americans to visit. So much so that it will not issue visas anymore. Why? Well, turnabout is fair play, as they say.
- Alaska Airlines is now trialing a preorder service for first class meals. Is it really so easy and why don’t more airlines do it? Because passengers mostly love it.
