Last week we talked a LOT about engines, mostly proving we have very little knowledge on the topic. This week we’re making up for that by bringing a special guest, Tom, on to the show. He knows a ton about the topic, having worked in aircraft and engine leasing for the past couple decades. He has some very interesting insight on what the latest 737/CFM engine situation means for the industry as a whole.
Also on this episode:
- Questions around the Airbus finances because of all the “gliders” they’re building
- IranAir’s 777s are not coming this year. And they may never be delivered.
BREAKING: #Iran's Islamic regime blames #US for forcing @Boeing to not deliver the first of 15 ordered Boeing 777-300ERs in July, but my source in #IranAir said even if there wasn't sanction, they couldn't receive the airplane because No financier has been found for the deal!!! pic.twitter.com/aHD0tzsUc1

- A330 production cuts
- British Airways had a flight from Dallas to London divert to JFK because someone apparently forgot to load the catering. How does that even happen?!?
