DLD 276: The Wuppertal* Episode


A quick getaway to Wuppertal was on the agenda this week. It vaguely worked, though none of the three hosts got to or fro exactly as planned.

The Schwebebahn hanging monorail is pretty cool, as is the Wuppertaler Brauhaus. But that part of the week plays second fiddle to some interesting news topics at hand, including:

  • Delta Air Lines is growing at Miami, promising links to the LATAM network there. How much connecting flow can those flights support?
  • An Ethiopian 737 encountered a swarm of locusts trying to land and the images are incredible.
  • UK’s FlyBE is still flying for now after the British government agreed to certain bail-out conditions. That the full details remain unclear is bad and both IAG and Ryanair aren’t happy with the moves
  • United is bringing the CRJ550 to its DCA-EWR “Shuttle” route and that’s both good and bad news in many ways


And lots, lots more. Enjoy the show!

*No portion of this episode was recorded in Wuppertal, even though that was the original plan. Oopsie
