Picking an airport in Mexico might be a bit more challenging later this year. Plus flying whales and more Tokyo.
Nothing but the best for our listeners as we wrap up the 2022 season.
Some terribly dorky jokes get us started this week, but eventually we manage to transition to terribly dorky conversations about airplanes, so that’s mostly a win.
Joint ventures are failing but does that mean the underlying businesses are screwed? And some serious long-haul route expansion coming, in theory, in the next 9ish months. Plus BER in trouble and the 787’s tail is a mess.
