When ultra long haul just isn’t enough, welcome to ludicrous haul. Plus some time spent with United executives, more delays from Boeing and more orders for Airbus.
Is there such a thing as a nice CRJ200 ride? And why might a new world’s longest flight be a bad idea?? Plus another top tier got harder to realize and LAX is moving its pickup zone outside the terminal loop.
New planes (787-10s), new union lawsuits (AA & DL) and new access to faster immigration lines (UK eGates) are just some of the exciting news in this week’s show.
Trip reports from near and far, more MAX and the neo is finally delivered!
Bienvenue a Toulouse! We’re in France this week to see the reveal of the brand new Airbus A220, formerly known as the CSeries. With the joint venture/purchase of the product complete Airbus is putting its stamp on the former Bombardier product and there’s a lot to consider.
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 in an expert who might know a little too much on the topic, at least assuming you do want to still fly more.
There are topics in this episode. Lots of them. Some of the best topics. But I have no idea what they are so you’ll need to listen to find out more.
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).
