Also in this episode:

  • UA 328 lost an engine and that was all sorts of exciting, plus the flight number matches our episode number, assuming we counted correctly
  • US Airport transit funding rules change and it could be a major win, though probably not a LaGuardia
  • ATR testing single pilot operations with FedEx
  • United adds bus service in Denver
  • Icelandair went to Antarctica
  • Boeing talking about possible safety issues at Airbus doesn’t look good, even if it might be vaguely accurate, plus EASA said it first
  • Lufthansa is ready to ground the A380 permanently
  • Air Sinai (which we talked about a year ago) could be going away for good?
  • Some follow-up on the Boston-London market and slots

For our Patreon subscribers we have bonus content, including:

  • Frequent flier account data was compromised because of a leak at SITA
  • IranAir as some interesting aircraft acquisition processes
  • TAP’s mistake fare

And plenty more. Enjoy the show!
