Speed records and airport news dominate this week’s show. Some sketchy funding stories, too!
Cutting money-losing programs makes sense in many cases. Selling off a profitable segment of the business is less normal. But here we are.
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.

Norwegian might need to pop a Cork, Frontier looks to cash out, the CS300 is sexy and some discussion on why we travel so much.
