New on DLD: You’re Fired!

Are we talking about the former United Airlines CEO Jeff Smisek or the British Airways 777-200ER in Vegas when it comes to that statement? Actually, a bit of both.


  • Emirates is rumored to be considering a flight to Mexico City from its Dubai hub. That’s even longer than the Panama City route just announced and possibly too long to work with the planes they’ve got.
  • American Airlines sent a non-ETOPS plane out over the water. That’s really, really bad.
  • One of the more random and esoteric “lines” is getting cut by SAS in October
  • Seth got the opportunity to walk around on the new Airbus FAL Factory Floor

Enjoy the show!
