No, that’s not really what ETOPS stands for but with the rash of engine issues in the past week we couldn’t help talking about them. Etihad cuts, Air India’s sale plans and American Airlines’ employees have a lot to say to their company. Come listen!
An airplane leaving the runway unexpectedly is never a good thing. Fortunately no injuries in this crazy story out of Turkey. Also, Alitalia is still looking for a savior and Azores Airlines now is as well. New uniforms, a giant cargo flight and more!
