Among the topics we’ve got this week: Delta Air Lines pushed its A220 inaugural back a week, hoping that the FAA certification pulls through in that time. Alaska Airlines also had to delay its service inaugural out of Paine Field north of Seattle. British Airways is finally giving up on its hopes of buying Norwegian and selling the ~5% stake it took. Seth flew on WOW Air and the carrier didn’t go bankrupt during the trip, which is a win. United Airlines had a 777 stuck in Canada while en route to Hong Kong and it was pretty frustrating for everyone involved. Brexit uncertainty is causing all sorts of problems, including a catering company stockpiling some sundries.
