Engines, engines, everywhere! Even more of which are now broken. Plus many inaugurals and maybe your biometric security data will be sold to an airline or airport soon.
United’s 737-10 and 787-10 combine to change the US transcon market, plus pilot housing in Hong Kong, a FAM gone wild and a potential strike in France. C’mon in!
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.
Naming a stadium costs big bucks. And when the name is poorly phrased that can be all sorts of awkward as United is discovering. Niki gets another new owner, Bombardier won and Qatar faces up to some challenges.
There’s something particularly strange about building an itinerary just to fly 4 different LCCs in 2 days in Japan. That’s what we have Seth for. Plus, a 767 renaissance, LGA shuffles, SFO air art and more.
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).
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.
Boeing’s new paper plane sounds cool but will it every fly? We do know that ANA will have a turtle flying by the end of the decade. And Pittsburgh, because why not!?!
Obscure city pairs on a helicopter? Out of the way airports to ease immigration? Airshow updates? We’ve got all that and more in this week’s show!
