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).
Come fly across the Atlantic with the crew on an LCC (in Y!) and talk about United’s newly revised A350 order, the evolution of Basic Economy and many US airlines scaling back revenue hopes for 2017.
The Paris Air Show was full of interesting news again this year, though much of it felt incomplete. Antwerp is an interesting destination and lots of legal stuff happening in North America, too.
What’s next for the A380? Delays in opening at Dubai and tracking new jets, too.
What’s next for seats, internet and entertainment on airplanes? Aircraft Interiors Expo is the place to find out and here’s this week’s show wrap up.
