"Some of these will be, of course, minor and almost barely worth talking about. But like you said, Ian, if GE were to discover a problem with the GE 90, that basically said you have to fix this or I don't know, the engine is going to explode and Russia has to figure out another way to go about fixing it. That is a very not good situation to be in. Which is not to say that that is extremely likely to happen. But at some point, there's going to be an airworthiness directive, or there's going to be a maintenance level where, okay, that plane just can't fly anymore. Yeah, well, think about the Pratt and Whitney 777 engines on the united 777 200 ER. That was a pretty significant issue. They were having it. And lots of investigation went into fixing that aircraft. And quite a number of hours to get it back and working order. But it's going to be a bit different for the Russian airlines, I guess. It'll have to be. Let's stick with Russian, I want to hit on some interesting comments that Ben Smith of Air France KLM said during their 2022 earnings call that happened this week. There was an analyst that asked them about flying around Russia. So Air France cam fights having to fly around Russia to get to destinations in China and Japan and places like that. And Ben Smith said something very interesting that, yes, they have to fly longer, up to three hours longer. While avoiding Russian air space. But the interesting thing here is that the overflight fees that the airline was paying to Russia to use Russian airspace were so high that they've actually seen similar performance and it hasn't really affected the profitability of those flights. Yeah, that's kind of wild. That's crazy to me. Isn't it? Yeah. Russia has always been notorious for charging high over flight fees because they can. Russia's huge. So why not charge a lot? What are you going to fly? Well, what are people going to do? Fly around for three hours? Yeah, these days. I guess this math works while oil prices are low as they kind of are now an aircraft or more and more efficient like does this math work with a brand new a three 50, probably, I guess it does. Would it have worked with a 747 200, almost certainly not. So this is definitely very interesting. I'm not sure all airlines are in the same boat with this because some airlines have been very, very impacted. We've talked about thin air in the past where they basically had to change their entire business model because of this. But for Air France, KLM, it seems like it's more of a wash. The only downside, I guess, is that if it's three hours extra, each way for these flights, that's 6 hours round trip that that aircraft is not available to do something else. And as air New Zealand has taught us, that's very important for that airplane to be where it's needed at any time. Indeed, it is. So yeah, I just thought that was a very interesting idea. But that could change at any moment. If the price of what? Yeah, exactly. If the price of oil goes up, then that comment becomes much different. Speaking of comments from airlines, valaris is hopeful that Mexico will receive a category. One rating within 6 months, from the FAA, which opens all kinds of doors to and, well, yeah, reopens. All kinds of doors for valaris and other airlines in Mexico. We've talked about this before in the context of both Mexico and I think Malaysia, I believe. Indonesia? Maybe I think as well? Probably as well, yeah. And the idea here is that with a category one rating, Mexican airlines can open up new routes to the U.S. and U.S. airlines can add code shares to Mexican airlines operating routes and all sorts of good fun stuff can happen because their safety rating from the FAA is at the highest level. So interesting to hear them put a time frame on it given how much airlines or air framers putting timelines on things that the FAA is going to do has been looked down upon in recent history. But if they're saying 6 months, sure, why not? This is definitely dragged on a lot longer than I think anyone had suspected it would. So the FAA must have really identified some glaring issues in Mexico's aviation sector, let's say, because this is everything from air traffic control to airports to everything in between. So there must have been some major issues at hand for it to take this long with a country that has so many airlines and so many routes operating between the U.S. and Mexico. That's just, this is a major impact. I don't think anyone thought it would be going on for quite this long. Yeah. The time frame here is just, I thought we would be done with this by now as well. Also this week, this was an interesting one that is just rather unfortunate, not nearly as long as the air New Zealand flight. But a Japan airlines flight that was flying from Tokyo to fukuoka, missed curfew. Oh no. There was poor weather in Tokyo and they had to do an aircraft swap, and so the plane took off late, and they couldn't make the 10 o'clock curfew.

"The fleet to replace the existing cads. Okay, and then finally, I guess the U.S. Air Force grounded T 38 talons and 76 Texan twos, potentially affected by the cat issue out of an abundance of caution. We will not return any aircraft affected by this issue to the flying schedule until we're confident they're escape systems are fully functional, said air education and training commands air education and training command never heard of that. 19th air force commander major general Craig wills are instructor pilots accomplish an incredibly important and demanding mission every day. Yeah. And we owe them safe and reliable aircraft. Yeah, you do. And much more. Yeah. A huge pension. So a bunch of a bunch of aircraft affected the article goes on and talks about some other airplanes that were also affected by the cads. And I don't know what else to say about this. Nick, captain Nick, do you have any well, I've got a little bit of background to this problem. And I can't really divulge where I got that from. It's been unfair, but and I can't confirm it other than they do in the last few sentences. I mentioned something that reinforces my opinion. Now, during the pandemic, they might have baker apparently. Changed their shift structure because of illnesses and because of just, they didn't need to have the same shift structured with the change and workforce they had. So. What they used to do was to pack these cards, I think one shift would do it completely from start to finish. And what they decided to do was that it would be allowable for one shift to start. The packing of these cats and they are another shift to finish. Now I'm not certainly if that is true or not, but that's what I heard. Now let me just explain again what cats are because right at the beginning of this, I think there's a little error in the article where it says the cats are the explosive cartridges used to propel the seat out of the aircraft during an emergency. The cats actually are actuators. They're small cartridges which, when they're ignited, fire gas through tubes around the ejector seat to set something off. It might be to set off the manual separation, it might from the seat. It might be just set off the automatic separation that cuts your sheet straps, allows you to fall out of the seat wearing a parachute. These are actuators that perform functions on the seat. The main gun I don't think is called is a cartoon cartridge actuated device. So the main gun is the big long tube that actually fires you clear of the rocket aircraft. Before the rockets ignite and count on trusting you. So this is another thing. It does. It pops 6 feet long. It's a telescopic tube, pushes you out, and then when you clear of the aircraft, a little wire has now come taught this attached to the cockpit floor and your seat, and that pulls the sear out that ignites the rocket, and then that carries on accelerating you away. The idea is that in order to get the separation and the zero zero capability, you couldn't put a huge gun in there because the G acceleration would, of course, your lower damage to your spine. So they wanted progressive acceleration, so they had a small gun, and then a rocket pack that would wish you the rest of the distance away. So these are little around the seat. And they activate on time on altitude on G and various other things to do the sequence that requires. I mean, command eject happens through one of these small explosive devices. So when one seat goes, the cab will fire and that will initiate ejection of the other seat, that sort of thing. So that's what these devices are. And right at the bottom it said, the cats defective part was lose some missing the magnesium powder used to ignite the propellant, so it sounds like in the packing, as I mentioned at these devices, a step was missed. Now, if you're going to get two different shifts doing the assembly of these items, they've got to take over at exactly the point the last shift finished them. And I suspect that there was no the perhaps the administrative recording of what the previous shifter done was in perhaps as accurate as it could be. The handover between the shifts didn't work very well and a number of these small explosive devices were packed and sent off, not having been put together correctly. Now, I've a huge amount of respect for Marlon baker. They have enormously high record. Recent years, they have dropped the ball a couple of times. And I hope this doesn't continue because they have a history that goes back to World War II that deserves maintaining. And I would like to see them tighten up their ship a little bit, you know, because this is a couple of times we've had some problems that have been directly attributable to Marlon baker's the way they operate. You would think that they'd have some kind of a thing where they pull like one every ten or one every 30, just from the assembly line and take it out. Almost than they do, Jeff. When they have cute quality, I suspect they're very rigid quality control, but it only takes one or two of these devices to get through in a big batch. And you won't discover that necessarily. But then when they're all shipped out and you realize there's a problem, you have no idea which ones had a miss assembled. So you've got to recall the entire batch. And that was obviously affected an awful lot of aircraft. An awful lot of seats. Wow. All right, very good. Well, thank you, Nigel, for sending us that article making us aware of that. Now, Nigel Sarkozy, very attuned to this, because he's backed out of a hawk. Yeah, he has experience getting banged out. Exactly. And his seat worked as advertised, and I saved his life. So that's fantastic. Yes. Yes. All right, I think we should go to getting to know us. What do you think?

"That the fight was canceled and would have been way later in getting rebooked to an Air France flight through Paris. Thankfully there was still an option, but really another one of those circumstances, which goes to show be more prepared than you have ever been before. Definitely make sure that the airline has your contact information. There's a chance that if you booked on an OTA like Expedia or kayak that the airline might not have your direct contact information and you might not be notified when something changes. Even if you use flight tracking app. So go out of your way and keep an eye on your flights this summer. Yeah, I fielded a few questions from people asking, should I book travel? And my answer lately has been maybe not if you don't have to, but the one thing I have recommended to people is do not book on an OTA. Book directly with the airline and make sure that all of your information is available. Fill out all of those text me, if anything happens. Fill out all of that email me if anything happens. Because like you said, airlines are doing a lot of things to try and manage this and one of the creative things I end up using creative and scare quotes here. Things that they've done is zero and inventory, but not actually cancel flights. So they might be moving you, but they might not be telling you right away. Yeah. Particularly with this flight from my parents. KLM canceled the fight and then dealt a didn't do anything. They just dropped the segment off their itineraries. So instead of going to going to their destination, it just terminated their outward flight at Amsterdam, and had they not realized that until they got to the airport, it probably would have been very bad day. You live an answer to him now. Congratulations. Okay, yeah, you're a bag handler now. You've been drafted by Iceland air. Get to it. I mean, where's things have happened? We have good benefits. I don't know. There you go. Let's go from Amsterdam to London or back to London, I guess. And talk about what happened earlier in the week. London's Heathrow Airport is saying that they will cap operations at 100,000 passengers per day for the next couple of months. That brings the stress on the airport's down a little bit, but our good friend Seth Miller notes that there's a hitch. So airlines to meet that cap or get under that cap can either cancel flights or just have fewer passengers on their existing flights. Seth and I think most of us would agree that canceling some of those fights and having full flights for the remaining flights are the most economic choice for the airline and what makes the most sense as far as having the number of flight crews and cabin crews and ground crews and all of these things because you're handling fewer flights. The regulators in the UK said, well, that's all well and good. But the slot rules for Heathrow still apply. So you need to use 80% of your of your slots or you risk losing those slots. As we've talked about before on the podcast, slots at London's Heathrow Airport are among the most, if not the most coveted slots, in the world. Airlines have traded and begged and borrowed, and I don't want to accuse any specific airlines, but some have probably stolen. To get slots at Heathrow Airport. So for them to say, well, you need to use them all or you're going to lose them. You're going to end up with not necessarily fewer flights, but fewer fewer flights total, but not as few as would be economically sensible. Yeah. This whole thing is ridiculous. And this has been an ongoing theme for years now. All throughout COVID with landing slots, especially at Heathrow here in New York, we have two slot controlled airports and really it seems like we've worked around most of those issues. But the regulators in the UK they are just being incredibly inflexible, but at the same time, mercifully going after the airlines and Heathrow for their poor performance, but not letting them cancel flights at the same time. None of this makes any sense, but honestly, I'm just surprised as anyone left in the UK government to tell them they can't cancel any flights. I thought I'd everyone quit last week. I think these are civil servants. They're sticking around. I don't think I don't think that's a problem here. But it's just like, why are they being so inflexible here? This helps nobody. The lack, yeah, I get as an institutional inertia. I don't even know what you would call it, but the lack of flexibility here. In order to ensure that people buying airplane tickets and traveling, airlines operating flights are doing their best to make everything work. And there's like, no, this would be an easy thing to do. Yeah. Not a good look. So good luck to the airlines, especially BA since obviously they have an outsized presence at Heathrow, so good luck, trying to meet the passenger cap, which I honestly isn't all that much lower than what they're actually operating at now. Which makes the whole not allowing any flexibility on the slots even more ridiculous. I mean, we're talking about like a few thousand passengers a day, isn't it? It's not the cap isn't significantly below what they're operating at. It's not like Amsterdam right now, but it seems like an idea. They want to do, but they have no practical way of actually doing it. Yeah. Common sense, just common sense, people. You know who has a lot of common sense? Dare I ask the Germans. Go on, sir. Lufthansa is canceling another 2000 flights, and that comes on top of their already reduced schedule. Yeah, things are not getting any better, really, anywhere you look in Europe. But 2000 connections at both Frankfurt and Munich hubs will be affected through the end of. August, that's on top of what was at 770 other flights before that that were already canceled. So this is a significant increase, not just a slight increase over what was already done. But really, it's just not good anywhere. Well, don't forget the initial cut, which was in the thousands. It was 2000 and change was the initial, the initial cut at the beginning of the summer through July and August,

"The urgency was conveyed enough to the ground controller who really didn't seem to be bothered by what was being reported at all. Remember, he's just a guy in the tower. And if I'm getting this right in my mind, he could just turn to his left and say to whoever is working the tower frequency, hey, don't let ITA depart they just hit Air France. And that should have been that, I think. If that is truly how it works and the tower, which I'm pretty sure it does, the whole situation was just very weird. And then eventually the ITA flight was contacting this. We have no issues. We're just going to keep on going. We're fine. Is that aircraft still on the ground in Rome or the Air France 777 is still on the ground in New York. So this happened local time, the evening of June 17th. The Air France aircraft is still on the ground. The eta airways flight, fat, once it was on the ground, stayed on the ground a little bit longer than it normally would have, but has since returned to service. And has flown, oh, let's see. One, two, three, four, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 flights. So whatever the impact was, it obviously wasn't serious enough to keep the ita airways a three 30 on the ground, but was serious enough to keep the Air France 777 on the ground. So it'll be interesting to see if there's a report of some kind out there if the FAA investigates if the port authority of New York New Jersey investigates, I don't know who would investigate this, but what assumes that Air France will be billing for whatever damage to the aircraft. Yeah, very strange all around, not really the way you'd expect the situation like this to be handled by pretty much anyone that handled it. I guess it was one of those unfortunate moments where an aircraft pushed back from a gate at JFK and actually took off relatively quickly and they weren't able to figure it out before they did take off. Yeah, so hopefully we hear more about what actually happened eventually. Let's close the show with some business news. We have LATAM on its way out of chapter 11 the judge in the case has proved basically their plan and they are now moving on their way out of chapter 11. So that's good to see. Grew to Indonesia, also secured creditor approval for their reorganization. So that'll be interesting to see how that proceeds, well, again. The last thing we've got is EasyJet, buying more aircraft. Can they buy more pilots to operate them too? They're going to have to. Jason, how many planes do they buy? A lot. 56 three 20 neo family aircraft for delivery from 2026 to 2029. So hopefully things will be figured out by then. And they're also converting 18 existing three 20 neo orders to the three 21 neo because everybody loves that aircraft now. Yeah, it's kind of funny how the a three 21 and I think we may have talked about the sport, but the a three 21 went from this kind of also ran aircraft and outcast that nobody wanted. Yeah, no one really knew what to do with, it turns out that if you make it go a little farther and put some better engines on it, it turns out to be a very attractive plane for a lot of airlines. Oh, yeah, for a long time. The a three 21 was kind of shunned. It was actually by far the largest operator of the type of the CO, and they knew something. They had an idea that that aircraft could live up to its full potential. Now, here we go. Everyone wants it. Who wants a three 20 when you can have a three 21 and put another 30 people on board? I mean, that's not a bad idea. Nope. Yeah, so this was episode 169 of av talk. Where really working our way, we should start thinking about what we're going to do for an episode 200. They always do.

"Fun. We'll be right back. Welcome back. It's now time for another round of things that airports and airlines are doing to ensure that they can actually operate their schedules. And as it turns out, the easiest thing for them to do is to just not operate flights. The latest I know. The latest this week is a few days ago, said that they were canceling a variety of flights and will operate 90% of their pre-pandemic capacity in July, August and September. So for the next three months, and that's about a 7% reduction than what they would have. So they've blamed tight labor market for crew, a long wait time for security checks and of course good old fashioned Brexit on some of these things. But basically they had too many flights and not enough people. We'll see if that works out for them. Sticking kind of in the European area, Gatwick has capped its flights for July and August. So instead of operating about 900 flights on peak days, Gatwick will cap July flights to 825 operations per day and 850 in August, hoping to avoid some of the things that have happened there over the past few weeks. It's getting better because they're figuring it out a little bit, but this really seems like something that should have been taken into account. Before. Was there an overly optimistic scenario where airlines thought that they could hire the right number of people to operate these flights? Did they think that they could get away with not having the people in place to operate those flights? I don't know which is more true or if they're both equally true, but either way, that was never going to work. No, no. Meanwhile, stateside, just this morning, a united announced that it was going to trim, I think, 12% of its flights or 50 per day. I think it was from its newer cub, since Newark for the last couple of months is just been an unmitigated disaster operationally. That kind of ripples throughout the entire at least the northeast and ripples surely throughout the country in some aspects, but this one is less of a crew or employee shortage so much as Newark's just going to be Newark. And there's a lot going on there. There are too many flights for the airport's overall capacity. There's some runway construction that's coming up. There's the terminal a expansion that's wrapping up hopefully by the end of the year that has some terminal space restricted or some gates restricted, that is. And to united JetBlue, spirit, FAA, port authority, have all been pointing fingers at each other for months at this point, yelling that there's too many flights. This has to change and finally, somebody has blinked in this case, and that would be united with the reduction of a few of its flights. And FAA has given them permission to do that for the remainder of the summer, while completely disregarding and ignoring its own issues of staffing availability for its centers to keep fights operating, which is a constant issue for Newark as well. Yeah, so they'll take 50 flights out of date. So what it looks like they're going to do is reduce frequencies to some destinations, not cut destinations out of new work construction, FAA staffing, all sorts of good fun stuff. Leading to just a poor experience in Newark. That's nothing necessarily new. A poor experience at Newark. It's just more acute right now. Yes, it is particularly bad. Let's stay in New York and I think this is the first time that this podcast has ever covered a hit and run. What kind of hit and run? Indeed. What kind of hit and run? And it just keeps getting even more bizarre. So at JFK, there are areas of the airport where aircraft are in very close proximity, and in previous incidents, aircraft have hit one another. I think the most famous impact was when the Air France A380 spun delta CRJ. There have also been a kid that was a long time ago, but I remember that one well. Yeah, I think it doesn't hurt that that one was caught on video. Then there was some wingtip fence issues and things like that. So we don't actually know where these two aircraft impacted. But an ita airways still in old Italia livery. So this plays in a minute. Impacted an Air France 777. Somehow, well, the Air France flight was arriving and the ita airways fight was departing. And so the Air France flight calls the ground frequency and says, hey, they just hit us, don't let them take off. And the ground controller at JFK has a trouble understanding with the Air France pilot is saying and then B doesn't care or it just doesn't want to be bothered with it. And so he says, well, go call the tower and not like call the tower frequency. Here's a few of the tower. Which I mean, I guess maybe is a better way to get a hold of somebody in the tower because of the phone rings they pick it up. But the flight had departed by that. By the time the Air France said, hey, they hit us. The ground controller said, what do you want me to do about it? Go call the tower. They call the tower. The ita flight has gone. Yeah, the whole sequence of events is very strange. Listening to the audio put together by, I guess, it's fast aviation. There doesn't seem to be much urgency coming from the Air France pilots, and that might just be, I don't know what to boil that down to, but it doesn't seem like.

"To the co-pilot expressed his astonishment and I'm quoting the update here now. Expressed his astonishment with respect to the aeroplanes bank angle. Yeah, quite confusing as it goes from a role of less than 3°, which was still completely within Air France's stabilized approach guidelines to somehow the co-pilot's astonished. We don't know what the actual words were. Maybe there's some ambiguity here, but why was he astonished with the airplanes bank angle? And from there, it seems to the situation amplifies quite quickly. I think is what they said. And the average position of the wheel was then at 6° to the left. And then that's what the airplane did. The airplane turned left with a small bank angle, and then the captain voiced his surprise with respect to the deviation from the fight path. That makes sense. And then they banked more and now it was bank 7° to the left with the wheel oriented 16° to the left. And at that point, the crew initiated a go around, but they say up until the go around, the flight path had remained within the operator's stabilization criteria. So that's a little odd, but you can never fault a crew for deciding to go around if everything is not up to their biking. That's a good decision, but from there, it gets even more confusing, doesn't it? Yeah, so at that point, once the decision has been made to go around. Both officer. Yeah, but both the first officer. And we'll include the BEA's update here because they provide a helpful graphic of a readout from the flight data recorder that breaks down when they disconnected the autopilot. And when they commence the go around. And from the go around, at that point, both pilots, the pilot flying, who is supposed to have his hands on the controls who's the first officer and the captain who is supposed to be the pilot monitoring. They're both putting inputs onto onto the controls. And the investigative update doesn't say anything about whether the captain said that it was his airplane and that he was taking over or anything like that. So given that the update was fairly specific in the timings of things, I feel like they would have mentioned that if it had happened. And so they were providing opposite inputs at certain points that at certain points in time, the inputs were so dissimilar that the control columns were no longer in sync. This is an interesting piece that I learned about today that when we had the Air France a three 30 crash. That was with an Airbus, obviously, with side sticks rather than a wheel as they call it in this case. Why are they calling a wheel again? Is that a translation thing? Or is that like, is that a common term to call the yoka wheel? I think they're trying to make a I don't know. That's a very interesting question. Okay. Anyway, you can call it a wheel. Yeah, I'll call it a wheel from here on out. Yolk equals weep. But with Airbus, they have side sticks and they have something called side stick priority. They're not active, so what's happening on the left side of the aircraft with the side stick is not being replicated on the right side. Only one of them is actually controlling with the aircraft is doing, regardless of the other side. In this case, it's a Boeing aircraft with the wheel. And the two acts, I believe, as one. Am I getting that right? Yeah, the one you move on the other one. Yeah, normally, when one moves the other moves. But in this case, the BEA provided a footnote that said, the Boeing 777 is equipped with mechanisms to override any jamming of a column or wheel. The right and left control channels are desynchronized in role or pitch if antagonistic forces on the right and left sides due to a jam or one of the control channels or opposing forces applied by the two pilots exceeds a certain threshold of around 50 pounds that controls are synchronized again when the opposing forces return to below the mechanism activation. Threshold. And in this case, the BEA says the columns were desynchronized for 14 seconds due to opposing forces, and then again briefly twice with a much shorter period of time. But that's pretty dramatic that the two pilots would have been so out of sync that the control columns of this triple 7 would have been desynchronized as designed, but that's something I learned about today. Yeah, yeah, I knew that that could happen, but the footnote is a helpful explanation of why. And how. The other thing that the update notes is why we have audio from the flight deck of this basically the whole incident. Because of the pressures that the crew is putting on the control, they had depressed the push to talk button, as well as the autopilot disconnect button. So there were oral warnings and you could hear what was happening on the flight deck because those buttons were being pressed as well as the pilots working to both working to control the aircraft. Yeah, and that did go out over the ATC radio and that was, I'm sure several of you, if not many have heard the air traffic control recordings, the French recordings. And it sounded like they were having to real fight against the aircraft, but it turns out it's more likely that they were actually fighting against each other and also published some charts where you could see the pitch of the aircraft. The left control column looks like it was calling for negative 8° while the right side was calling for 8°, it was up, so they were quite dramatically calling for very different responses at the same time. Yeah, so lots to investigate CRM wise in this. But the initial investigation has shown that the aircraft itself was actually fine. Confused, but fine. Confused but fine. Yeah, it'll be interesting to see what for the recommendations. The final report offers. And of course, remember this is a preliminary investigation report. There's no blame associated, no findings, no recommendations. That will come, let's say, a couple of years from now, probably. Yeah, eventually. Eventually, it will come eventually. Speaking of safety, we talked a few weeks ago, I think, at this point, when the European Union revised its list of aircraft that are banned in the EU airspace, that list normally includes airlines that have history of poor safety performance or their safety record can not be verified. That list was added onto a few weeks ago and most if not all major Russian carriers were added to that list. This week, the FAA in the U.S. basically did the same thing by downgrading Russia's safety standard. And that prevents is similar to the EU list, but there's a some technical distinctions. I guess we could say. Yeah, I believe this is the same thing that the FAA imposed on Mexico, not all that long ago, which I think is still in place. If it's the same level of downgrade, it basically prevents Russian airlines from adding any new routes to the U.S. and also has some code share implications, but effectively this doesn't change anything. Since no Russian airline is flying to the U.S. or can even practically fly here. Right. Oh, I did see a Volga going back to the beginning of the show. I did see a Volga and one two four at Pearson parked off to the side somewhere. So I wonder, where's the crew right now? I don't know. I assume they probably took a commercial fight to Europe and got home that way, but I don't know. I have seen people ask, what happens to that aircraft? It's kind of being held hostage, but not really because it has nowhere to go. Yeah, I don't know. I don't know. I don't have an answer for that. Nope. Sticking with Russia, aeroflot is now out of sky team. Okay, matching one world's decision or I guess agreement with S 7 to remove them from that alliance..

"With us, we'll be right back. Welcome back, we are once again joined by Ned Russell of skiff and airline weekly. He is an airline reporter there, but we've brought him back today because he is also a rail transportation reporter for this particular episode of the podcast. Ned, welcome back to the show. Thanks, Ian. It's a pleasure to be back. Welcome, Ned. And correct me if I'm wrong, but trains are not airplanes, right? That is correct. Trains are not airplanes. They don't have many wings and they don't fly through the air. But you're here to tell us how sometimes they take the place of airplanes. Absolutely. I was just had the opportunity to try one of Air France's train plus air connections where they train operated by the French railway company SNCF operates with the flight. And takes the place of an actual flight. So this is something you go to the Air France website and you say I want to go from point a to point B really point C and you're connecting through one of Air France's hubs. In this case, you were connecting to Paris. And part of that connection is traveling from the aircraft to a train and then onward to your next destination. Walk us through how that works, how you go from choosing the trip to actually connecting. So yeah, so I forced this to set this up so that I could make a connection to a train, just this is a planned trip. But Air France markets 18 domestic markets that it operates trains in with connections via Leon or Paris. And so I have to give in the kudos go to the Air France website type and I did Marseille to Brussels. And you type that in and the website gives you a first up connections that involve a train. It flew up to Paris, and then it was a train for the last segment. And you don't have to say, I think a lot of people don't think of taking a train on some of these shorter routes, but I give kudos to Air France's booking system for putting the train right up top. And I've since learned that there are actually no flights between Paris and Brussels. So there wasn't a choice, but there are other airlines that fly to Brussels. So they could have tried something else. So yeah, it goes in, you book it like a normal flight. Can't select your seats, but it's otherwise really straightforward. And air plus rail, I guess, is what they call it now, but that's been a thing with Air France for a while now, right? This isn't a new thing, but is it recently or to be expanded? Yeah, so I spoke to Air France about this and they've been offering these for about 25 years. They couldn't give me an exact date, but mid 90s is a good place. So they have these have gained renewed interest recently with the French climate law in 2021 that mandated certain domestic routes where trains were two and a half hours on a train and flights couldn't operate. And so Air France canceled three routes out of orally. So that's not a lot. But as part of that Air France is working more with SNCF to expand their offering connections they added a number of new cities last year, and this year they're working on offering a fully digital solution where you could check in on your app and you get both boarding passes all the way through. That was not in place yeah, I was going to say like what was the experience because today, you know, you book a flight if you have multiple flights in the same itinerary, typically you check in for the first that will check you in for both flights. But in this case, what did you have to do to, I guess, check in or just arrive for the second flight, which happened to be the train. Yeah, well, that's where the whole system sort of got a little precarious. It's a good way to put it. I was able to check in on the app, but not get my boarding pass for the train portion. And so when I landed at Charles De Gaulle and I, there was snow in April. So my flight was late, and I had a very tight connection. I had to actually go find the air rail office in the TJ station at Charles De Gaulle, and the disappointing thing was, while the booking system promoted this connection, it was not very intuitive once I got to Charles De Gaulle. There were no signs until after baggage claim. So if you're coming in and you don't know your necessity, you're going to be in trouble because you're like, where am I going? There's nothing that says go out baggage claim go to the station. So that was a challenging. And then you have to find the actual office in the station. That's a great point, because I just had a couple flight to flight connections into gala and just getting from E to F or the K concourse or whatever. Just changing between flights was even for me was a little confusing just to navigate because you have to walk and then you have to take a train, then you have to go through security and customs. But unless they explicitly tell you, even though you're in the Schengen technically fight, you have to completely go through baggage claim and technically leave the airport to get to your train. Absolutely. And that was a problem that I came off my plane, and I said I would take connections where it was going to miss the train. And went to the departures board down on the not yet having exited the concourse thinking and say, Brussels, proceed to train or something. But my flight wasn't even up there. And I decided to take the leap of faith and walk right out into the arrivals hall that that was the right place to go. And I consider myself fairly savvy traveler, so I was fairly confident that was the right thing to do, but I can easily see someone that is not sure being what the heck do I do? So taking the, I guess, the logistics out of it or the way finding in de Gaulle. How was the actual transfers since unlike here in the U.S. where seemingly trained and planes are completely divorced from each other physically. I know the trends are very close inside de Gaulle, but was it really like you walk out of baggage claim that you walked downstairs to this regional train? Yes, thankfully it was pretty simple. I left baggage claim it was about, and they say it's a 5 minute walk, took me probably three. I might have been sprinting part of it. Then you are literally in the TJ base station. Stopped in the office. The gentleman there did not seem as concerned about my tight connection as I was. And I was on my train within 15 minutes. So I did make a 20 minute connection at the gall to the train, some sprinting involved. But the actual, yeah, getting to the train very easy. No aero train to take me to the station or monorail like a Newark. That was easy..

"Actually mean. And so you end up with less understanding than you would have without that. So be cautious when you listen to those, we're not going to link to any of those because I don't want to feed into that. But what happened looking at the data and looking at what the French BEA reported in their issue of notification that they are investigating this incident. The aircraft was on final approach to the southernmost runway at CDG. And began drifting left and the autopilot was not responding. And as the aircraft continued to drift left and drift left, the pilots were working on getting the aircraft to correct course and could not, they disengaged the autopilot, performed to go around, and were able to safely land the aircraft about 25 minutes later. So the audio recording is beside the trend, the mistranslations, what's interesting is that for one thing, they accidentally keyed the chat, not the chat button, but the transmit button on their headsets and a lot of behind the scenes noises and alarms were sent over the ATC radio. And there was a lot of things going on. They seem to be physically fighting with the aircraft. At some point, I believe you could hear the master of warning of the aircraft go off, the autopilot disconnect alarm went off. So there was a lot going on in a very short period of time. And we'll just have to wait for the BEA to do their investigation. They tweeted this morning a serious incident to the Air France 777, registered FGS QJ, noted instability of flight controls on final go around hard controls, fight path oscillations, and they have opened a safety investigation, also noting that the CVR and FDR data had already been retrieved and is being currently analyzed. So they are taking this very seriously already. Yeah, I mean, thankfully, the.

"Hello and welcome to episode 152 of Avatar I am Ian pechenik here as always with Jason Roberto Ian, how are you on this 152nd meeting of our voices? I am well. How are you, sir? I'm good. Thank you. It's like the intro to a sporting event. 152nd annual when teams have been when teams have been going 152nd annual. That would be. That would be something. Can you imagine having followed like if you had been in your late teens? In so if you've been born in like 1900, can you imagine having gotten into aviation say you lived somewhere where the Wright brothers were in the newspaper on a regular basis and then you followed aviation and by the time you're in your late 60s, we land a man on the moon and then say you live into your 70s and you can fly on a 747. That's something all right. That had to have been just an amazing kind of if you were into aviation at that point and had lived that life. That would be incredible. Yeah, we don't exactly have anything as dramatic as that, but planes are still nice. Planes are stimulus. And nothing dramatic like that has happened, but planes have gotten bigger and they've gotten smaller. That's true. And later in the episode, they could be powered by different things. We'll get to that shortly. Let's start with an update on the situation in Ukraine. Last week we talked about some of the airlines that were pulling back service or canceling service in into and out of Ukraine. That list grew over the past week with Lufthansa group, so Lufthansa, Swiss, and Austrian airlines joining the list as well as SAS and Air France. So those airlines have canceled their flights to airports other than the view, which is in the far western southwestern portion of Ukraine. And those fights have continued, but we're starting to see some airports, no tanned closed, car cave is now closed overnight, the notam says, this is Wednesday, February 23rd. It's closed until 6 30 in the morning, UTC. So 8 30 in the morning, local time. It doesn't affect any flights, but I'm not sure why you would know an airport closed. If you didn't think something was going to happen. So by the time the podcast comes out on Friday morning, it could be very clear why the airport decided that they were going to close their runway overnight. I hope that's not the case. Maybe it's just for maintenance. Clearing off the rubber from the thresholds. Yeah, but we'll see where that leads us. The most tracked flights all week on flight radar 24 have been over Ukraine. We briefly had the most tracked flight for the numerically significant Lufthansa flight Toulouse on 22 to 22, that that was fun for a moment. But other than that, it's all been flights over Ukraine, especially a lot of the ISR flights by the U.S. Air Force, the Royal Air force, the UK, as well as some NATO aircraft. So those have been followed at this point, I want to save religiously by a lot of people and I'm sure that a lot of the listeners on this podcast have been following those as well. And those continue to be active as of now. So we'll see how things change by Friday. And if you're listening to the podcast on Friday, this information could all be very, very well moot. But hopefully, hopefully not. Yeah, well, as we speak right now, the number one and two most tracked fights are both the U.S. drones over Ukraine for a total. More than a 101,000 people watching both of those right now. That's quite impressive. And you didn't even put out a push alert or anything. This is just, no, this is all watching. This is all people watching. Yeah. And those were the only two drones were allowed to see. I'm sure there are more up there right now that maybe not broadcasting, but a lot going on. Yeah, I mean, we can talk about that for a second. We've gotten a lot of questions this week about is this something that we should be seeing and my answer and the answer is that these flights are visible because they choose to be. These aircraft are broadcasting in the case of the two U.S. Air Force RQ fours, their broadcasting mode S not ADS-B, so we're using mlat to track those. And we've talked about that in the past without getting into too much detail in this time around. I'll put a link in the show notes to a detailed blog post that we have if you want to learn more about that. But the short answer is that multiple receivers, time, how long the signal from the aircraft takes to get to that receiver and then we're able to calculate the position of the aircraft based on how long the signal takes to get to a receiver that we know the position of. So then the latitude and longitude basically are able to be calculated for the aircraft and then displayed as the track. Right. Because these aircraft are operating at such a high altitude, I'm sure they're painting a lot of receivers at any given time. One is operating at 51,000 feet, the other ones at 54,000 feet. So there's quite good coverage on these where it naturally looks like regular ADS-B.

"Has lost two of its most loyal customers for single aisle jets, Qantas and KLM are moving over to Airbus, which announced the deals to sell scores of planes to the two airlines. It comes as Boeing tries to recover from the lengthy grounding of its 7 37 max aircraft after two of them crashed in 2018 and 2019. Market supporter Anna Hutchinson is back with us again. Good morning. Hey, good morning. How big of a loss is this for Boeing? It's pretty major. It comes at a time when the American plane maker is trying to rebuild its order backlog after those crashes, and it's also the loss of two formerly loyal customers. Car lemon quantize airways currently only operate a single aisle jets made by Boeing, so this is changing right now. So a big loss for Boeing equals a big win for Airbus. It really does. It's a sizable order. The Air France kale and group ordered up to a 160 jets and Qantas airways said it would buy 40 jets with purchase rice for another 94. So it's a lot of planes. Much of the world has again cleared the 7 37 max to fly again. How are sales looking for it? There's only going to pick up the pace this year through the end of November, Boeing secured 692 orders for the aircraft, and that's after it got recertified and returned to the skies towards the end of last year. We should say that the big aviation story of the last two years has been the big story of everything of the last two years. That was the pandemic, of course. How has the pandemic changed airlines purchases? So as people have started traveling again, they have tended to stay more local rather than the big long haul cross continental travel. So that means they're covering air traffic this year has been led by airlines operating predominantly short haul and domestic routes. So more airlines are buying narrow body jets, and that means that this market has become a critical battleground for the two big rivals Airbus and Boeing. And have a good weekend. Thanks so much. That is market support and hurting steam and coming up, marking the second COVID Christmas as.

"Does that work into your approach to teaching students? You know, my focus when I'm teaching students, I've been trying to spend a lot of time and just understanding how personalities and how people learn. So that factors into trying to understand the passenger experience as well. But when I'm trying to teach pilots, I try to get them to spend more time on looking at themselves. Just for an example in the industry worldwide business or airlines is reading an NTSB report and looking at somebody who has 12,000 hours very experienced people, but making incorrect decisions. What can we in the industry do go back to the beginning so that that decision had a better outcome later on? So it's a long way to go back. But it begins by understanding yourself. So when you have an emergency, you have a startle reflex. What are your own startle reflexes? If you can bring your awareness up to your own reaction to what's happening, you just in a matter of moments can maybe deal with the steps of the emergency better. So in that moment of startle, the alarm bells are going off, what exactly do you do? What is your brain doing at that moment? They've done some research. I saw a drexel university at this did this cool experiment. They hooked up pilots to brain sensors trying to quantify learning and reaction. And how your brain is drawing that information, so they hooked them up to these monitors, put them in the simulator, had them do just basic maneuvers, and then they turned a couple emergencies and just watched how the brain access to the information. You put that same pilot in another airplane now and do the exact same thing. The brain pathways to draw that information is coming from a different way. And what's happening is no matter how good our simulators are, your brain knows that you're safe on the ground. I mean, even though you come out of dripping wet, you're stink and stressful. Because in that moment, it feels like you're in the airplane, but your brain knows that it's safe. So when your brain thinks it's not safe, you're going to access your information a little bit differently. So you react better to any emergency you have to understand yourself and how you react. So pilots generally are have low neuroticism. It doesn't mean you are not neurotic. It just means that you have the ability of presenting calmness, even if you are injured stressful situation, you've all heard the tapes of somebody being so calm as they're about to crash. But that can also get us in trouble too, because we don't maybe put enough emphasis on what's happening at that moment. But all of us get tunnel vision when we're under a stressful situation. So how do you snap out of that and be able to draw in all that information? I can't tell you that. That's the thing. We can't tell you that get out of that. You need to start just analyzing yourself and realizing that in that moment, you are not taking in all that information that you need. So what do you do? You focus on whatever that problem is. Just to pull out a situation, most people know of the Air France situation where they had one simple thing fail, right? So all you do is you have your airspeed indicator fail, your autopilot goes off. So your tunnel vision goes down to the one problem. Instead of read that moment saying, hey, I've got two good engines. What else do I need? Nothing. You've got airspeed and attitude and two engines. Why are you adjusting the power? Why are you changing any kind of configuration of your airplane? So just getting pilots in that core beginning when they're just learning how to fly. In a moment of confusion, what is their reaction? I know for me, when I was in the simulator in just learning jets, during the emergency, I always felt like I had to be doing something right away. So my reaction when the bells were going off as I started touching and moving things, when in fact, that's just the opposite because I'm not thinking it through. So simply asking pilots to pay attention to themselves under duress, I think will help them in any kind of emergency situation. So just kind of a basic overview of that thought. And do you have a way that you help students come to understand this? Give them a case study or is there a teaching method that you employ to drive this point home? So I'll tell you what I do for myself. And this isn't going to work for you. My students think it's really funny, but for me, when I recognize I'm in that moment, I have to do something to tap yourself out of it. And so for me, I just say to myself, don't be a dumb ass. That's all I have to say. So it does two things because it's allowing that threat of humor to come into my situation. But what happens when that when you do that, is that you relax just a moment. You're still at high situational awareness, but having that moment of humor, you drop that level of tunnel vision to allow a couple more things to come in. And then when you can do that, you can bring a little bit more in. So it's super important because we all are going to react differently. So you need to have your own trigger. Your own I know they can teach you aviate navigate and.

DAB digital radio it is just coming up to 8 o'clock this morning and that means that European equity markets are just going to be getting into their stride So the stock 600 straight out of the gates and to the downside as Matt Miller was warning at the end of the last hour of programming it could be a bit of a rough ride for global equities being so close to all time highs as we are certainly in the United States And having heard from such tech heavyweights overnight with such a lot of comments around supply chain disruption all of that no doubt weighing on many investors this morning So the stock 600 down by three tenths of 1% the 3100 down by 6 tenths of a percent the cacao aren't down by four tenths the Dax just waiting to get started this morning and the ibex over in Spain down by three tenths of a percent All of these coming off the back of a session in Asia that was again weighed down by concern around technology We saw some of the tech names listed in China weighed down by read across from Amazon and Apple into those kinds of companies and looking ahead to the U.S. session we see E mini futures down by half a percent of NASDAQ features down by 8 tenths of a percent And the fact that we see E minis down and the fact we see European equities broadly weaker tells us this isn't just about technology This is something broader and just taking a little bit of a breather from recent highs perhaps In terms of the earnings season we've heard plenty from European corporate and we'll get to the individual reaction that we're seeing to some of that this morning a little bit of lackluster reaction in perhaps the banking sector here in the UK In terms of other markets I'll just check where we are on commodities and currencies for you So the Brent price is up by a quarter of 1% at 84 54 the U.S. ten year yield 1.59% We saw some inversion of the 2030 curve not a focus for markets every day but still worth noting in the broader flattening picture which has dominated markets of lace And the dollar is a little bit stronger up by one tenth of 1% on the dollar and the Bloomberg dollar index the Euro pulling back from yesterday's move higher one 16 67 So that is a quick look at where we are on these markets just gone 8 o'clock as I say here in Europe Let's get to the sum of the stocks that we're watching this morning And Bloomberg's kit Reese joins us A kit very good morning to you Can you tell me a little bit about let's start with the aviation sector shall we Air France KLM Yes so it's a reported results and these are closely watched for clues and how the travel recovery is panning out So it seems to be actually going up too badly So Air France care lands at the summer high seas of demand beat expectations As restrictions eased and also is expecting to return to profitability for the full year So if we look at the shares up .7 this morning and 4.7% this morning a very strong reaction there And you know it's betting on a revival in the transatlantic travel industry by adding more seats to the looks like things are going well and it's being rewarded by investors this morning Yes certainly for those European airlines That transatlantic route so important for volume but also profitability So interesting to see their comments around that transatlantic revival Let's go to the gaming sector now this is something this is a part of the economy that no doubt has been boosted by lockdown was boosted by lockdown What is that what is the story behind ubisoft today though You have actually passed its annual sales forecast because it's been difficult with the pandemic to bring out these big blockbuster games and it seems the delays to some of the releases If we look at the shares that actually up 8.4% this morning I mean a very strong reaction but it's worth bearing in mind They weren't down 45% ahead of the release due to all these kind of problems that it's been seeing But again a very strong hire And it's been as you say it's been interesting because there was a sector that's benefited during the pandemic from people stuck at home playing video games Yes the shelter of very strongly this morning Okay yeah really interesting that the stock would respond in that manner I see that some analysts are saying this was a mix of good and bad news So we'll keep an eye on the use of share price What about glencore The mining business the mining trading business upgrading estimates Upgrading its guidance to the market what's the story there Yes so it's obviously the big boost for rising commodity prices for the big story this year It's benefiting from a global economic recovery as industry has come back on top and as well it's benefiting from those energy shortages we've seen And the volatility and the commodities market has created opportunities for these big commodities traders to profit from these moves And we've seen this in across other traders and oil majors But if we look at the shares of glencore this morning that actually down a little bit down at 1.8% again we're bearing in mind the shares had rallied 60% ahead of the release that's been quite a big move through perhaps a little bit of profit taking there from investors Yeah perhaps a really interesting to see we're getting maybe not textbook reaction to some of these share price stories Which is interesting in itself Just broadly on the markets kids I want to just weigh in if you could on what is driving sentiment lower here Because if it's all about tech you wouldn't expect European equity markets to sell off to the extent that they are and we have the footsie 100 down by 8 tenths of 1% The Dax down by 8 tenths And these are not markets that are as dominated by tech as obviously the NASDAQ Obviously it makes sense that NASDAQ futures will be weaker We're going to talk about tech stocks in just a moment But what else do you think it is that sort of weighing on the European sentiment Is it just that we've come so far I think yes that is one thing that investors have been really watching the earnings season for clues as to how the you know if we're seeing more progress in the economic recovery And if we look this morning it got basic resources at the bottom they're weighing the most So it looks to be sort of a classic risk of move with some of these more cyclical sectors like miners and banks down technology also lower perhaps a little bit of sentiment there from the U.S. earnings But probably not as much again given as Europe as a sort of more focused on the old economy types of sectors Okay so it's a broader sell off Thanks so much Thanks for joining us Bind Berg Bloomberg's kit Reese with the latest on the individual stocks that we are watching So we talked a little bit there about how sentiment is being affected by what we've heard from technology and some big technology names overnight It's been a rocky night for big tech earnings Apple and Amazon reporting disappointing quarterly results In a sign that the global supply chain crisis is hobbling even the mightiest of companies erasing hundreds of billions of dollars from their combined market valuations The tech giants delivered a clear message to investors this holiday season is going to be difficult.

The commercials were all over the place. You can fly the future British Airways, you could fly the future British Airways Air France as well. But the Concorde never really caught on. It was crazy. Expensive. It got old. It was unreliable. Fatal crash did it in. But today United shocking the airline world by announcing that it is buying supersonic planes in a deal to initially by 15 planes from a startup company called Boom, Supersonic.

"Air france and austrian airlines have both had to cancel services after their flight plans were rejected by moscow will for more on this. I'm joined by mark audie. Who's the principal director at my intelligence and a senior associate fellow at the royal united services institute in london and i'm also joined by multiple twenty four security correspondent ben. Ben i'll start with you Maybe can you deconstruct this for us. A little just we're supposed to be getting back into the air Airlines are very excited that they can of course be getting passengers and crisscrossing oliver europe We have this Small blockade or certainly some aircraft to have been turned around to entering russian aerospace It's quite unfortunate timing isn't it but it's all part of a wider context so we all remember that sundays saw this shocking version of a ryanair flight to minsk in belarus and the arrest of one passenger in opposition journalists and the us immediate sanctions were banning belarus in alliance from landing in the eu and ordering airlines to avoid belarussian aspects since then bellarusse is a whole on the radar. Almost can make out the the borders of the country on a map. Because there's no flights above it. It also meant that. Some flights between the eu and russia had to change routes and apparently now russian authorities are unwilling to accept that and declined those flights by f. haas genera. It isn't entirely clear. Why it's only those airlines and whether there are technically shoes to blame related to these route changes or if there are mostly political motivations for example signaling that russia standard belarus and that it's flexing its muscles and emphasizing the importance of its aviation market an airspace
International travel restored at Houston's major airports
"The return of international flights to Houston's airports is big money for the regional economy. Historically, we've seen that when we get a new international carrier, adding in service to the market, it could be anywhere from 100 Year to 200 million, depending on the frequency in the markets. They serve and think along those lines, so it definitely is a very positive impact for the greater Houston region. Molly waits, his director of Air service development for Houston airport, she says Air France, Emirates, Qatar Airways and United Airlines, along with about a dozen others have restarted international service to Bush and hobby.
Uncontrolled Airspace: General Aviation Podcast
Airport Full - No Parking Please
"So the airlines had a whole new kind of problem these days, and and this is an interesting shots of it. Breaks. My heart to. But. David! What's this? This is the you called her attention to the story about this airport in Spain. No passengers but also no place to put airpl- new anymore airplanes. No! No parking sign went up some time some time ago at Terrell Airport in Aragon and eastern Spain. and for a while recently it topped the list of Spain's busiest airport and if you look at the photograph at the link. You should quickly discern what. It's turned into. A parking lot on par with. Mahabe in a couple of other places in the South West. Uses a aircraft storage. Yeah, yes, of course. Mojave is for airplanes that are that are extensively retired. These are just airplanes that are parked and. Waiting to go back into service, it kind of begs the question of where I don't know it makes me think. that. There are a lot more airplanes in the under normal times. There's a lot more airplanes in the sky than we ever realized and now that we now that we can't store them in flight. You know we've got to put them because you would think that there would be no got park someplace overnight, but apparently not they you know. They always had to park someplace overnight. As my point well, they always had to park someplace overnight, but they add gauge to do that at. And Hey be even overnight. There's still some of them in operation right right right. Oh and I see what you're saying. Chip that that even though things are down, they have to keep gates open. They can't use the gates as parking places right because they are. You know not as much, but they are using the gates. Okay, I'd forgotten about that. You're right all right so Yeah, we see this. We're seeing these kinds of images all over the place with the airliners. Active airline aircraft. Act I don't know how to put this exactly. What's the right term? But the point is are not retired aircraft there just. Aren't needed right now. Short term storage. Yeah, yeah, and how did you get? A work is getting longer and longer. It depends I mean. I saw somewhere where I don't know which carrier, maybe as just a general rule for for those types of airplanes but They had. mechanics early technicians periodically going out empowering things up, and and maybe even starting the engine cycling, the hydraulic system things like that, and just on a on a regular basis calling at flyable storage or something. That's certainly you know one way to do it another way to do. It would be to just seal the sucker up. Leave it there. Until, however, if Rao, our law and you have a laundry list of things to then go through. when you want to take it out of storage, well certainly gonNA. Have a laundry list one way or the other it. Depends you know, it depends on the airplane be. It depends on how it's stored. Right exactly and. It's in sorry I keep drifting away from the micro. Keep on. that. Bottle of water. So. It's an interesting question. I wonder if they already had procedures for such a thing or if they're trying to design to write these procedures I think quick answers, yes. They had procedures and they needed to write new ones. They they have checklists. They have all kinds of. Maintenance requirements. Powering the airplane up powering down whatever. But I think they also had to write some of that and again, depending on the aircraft and depending on the carrier. have to rewrite some of their procedures to consider this longer longer term flyable storage. Yeah the and the long term storage slightly So many years see yeah, they they've got a big long list of what they do. I mean they mask over all the air inlets? All the heat exchangers. Tape over the window put protection over the window so. transparencies don't suffer from sandblasting when the wind goes whipping through the airport and pick up debris. Pickle the engines of Put tight covers on the enlighten exhaust into the rice. Block up those heat exchangers. It it's. It's a substantial undertaking to mothball and airplane for a long period of time. Probably. Probably not anywhere near that because. They're subject to getting back into fleet as soon as the traffic supports it. And that's the reason they're. They're the. Shutdown of flying an international travel from Kobe nineteen is knock traffic in the dirt. I mean Air France has one hundred eighty airplanes. In storage out of lead to twenty four. Holy Crap that's only forty four airplanes that they're operating

The South West where Airbus has, its headquarters is massively dependent on this industry and the theories, the with aircraft production having. Having declined by more than a third since the crisis, the thousands of people could be laid off and to lose could become Europe's Detroit, so the French government is very keen to over the crisis, and then to provide the foundation for future growth as well.

Catholic Pacific has been very badly hit by the COVID nineteen crisis, and even before that it was feeling the effects of civil unrest in Hong Kong, which was deterring people from travelling, so there's a large bail out package.

German government to bail Lufthansa out of bankruptcy
"Air France a bit of a conditional type of of bailout happening there And then a lot of discussions and of course. This has been going on for for a while. Would we see Berlin looking at some type of loan scheme investment in Lufthansa? A LOT OF PEOPLE. Also saying yeah. Governments have no part of this But of course it seems like something is going to go ahead. what What do we know yet could often intimate afternoon indeed? Yeah Lifthansa. They've they've got there. They've got their annual shareholder meeting today. And of course I mean it's it's an AGM in a shareholder meeting without shareholders. Because you know everyone has to watch it removes Anyway Long Story. Short like other airlines. Lufthansa is also fighting for its survival. government bailout looks. Uh looks likely well. It looks absolutely necessary to be honest. the figure we've hurt is around ten billion euros and of course the The controversial story is that how big will the government influence be once they've provided the ten billion and you know if Lift chief executive officer. Cast boy has any say. I mean he doesn't want an easy to government people on his supervisory board and tell him how to run an airline and I think history's poorly shown that Governments aren't good owners of many assets airlines in particular. So so he. As far as we know he doesn't want the government in there but of course he needs the money so this is kind of this kind of the the question. That's that's being discussed in Berlin as we speak. How much government influence You know will will lift and up with overall. I mean the The the shares have had a pretty disastrous year. Obviously they've Haft lift has has said it will cut the number of aircraft operates permanently They've they've closed a few weeks ago. They've closed their discount Germanwings As a as a first step to to cut back on expenses so at the moment the company is burning through eight hundred million euros a month I think got fourbillion liquidity. Right now You do the math. It's it's it's not a unique situation but maybe just before we get to unique situations. Do we have any indication as to how much going to be Loans and then securities in? Are we looking at? The German state would actually go in and end up with fifteen percent right away or does that come as a second stage potentially I think I think it's really still still up in the. I mean as an example. You look at Suisse the Swiss army of of Lufthansa. They fully They got their money and the Swiss government Hey decided rather than to take a direct stake in the company which is giving medicine hundred percent owned by. Lufthansa would be difficult to pull off. Anyway Dave basically provided credit guarantees so Swiss will receive money from the banks from UBS in Credit Suisse and the government will provide guarantees to the tune of one point three billion francs

Grinding to a Halt
"It started off initially the night trump head incorrectly of course he incorrectly announced the travel ban into the US which turned out not to be a full ban at turned out to be limiting non residents and and non-citizens into the US. And we were trying to keep track of what routes were still operating routes. Were suspended which the time was a pretty doable concept but it so quickly morphed into what airlines are operating what capacity and what airlines are not operating at all for the time being and on top of that which airlines will never be operating again. Which is something. I expected to be tracking this week. Yeah I I mean when when you sent me the initial Spreadsheet and said. Do you want to help and I said sure that seems like something that we can kind of keep track out and look into schedules and things like that and then that just became an impossible task to to track individual rights when when airlines started moving towards. We're going to reduce forty percent of our capacity fifty percent sixty seventy eighty and now. The top of the sheet is just airlines. That are not operating flights right so we are currently tracking forty two airlines. That are completely one hundred percent grounded either now or in the very immediate future at ranges from tiny little Air Antwerp all the way to the bottom of the list. The Yemenia Airways sunwing in their Philippines Montenegro locked jet to Egypt there Cayman Airways Airlines from every region. All over. The planet have ceased operating entirely. And that's not even considering airlines at our ninety nine percent grounded such as Ryanair. Sas who have tons of group as a whole believe is ninety. Eight percent cut Air France. Ninety percent. Cathay Ninety percent tap ninety percent. Norwegian eighty-five doubt. They see the other end of this crisis. Korean Air Eighty five percent American Airlines fifty percent as of now but that will probably be going up. Some of the domestic. Us airlines are doing slightly better. Jet Blue has cut forty percent Hawaiian forty percent spirit down to twenty percents southwest really only twenty percent right now the Middle Eastern Airlines. Haven't done all that much. I believe guitar is just a five percent cut right now and I haven't heard much of Andy had or or Emerets but it is truly a global without exception circumstance right now. Yeah so we've started tracking since this began to sets of numbers. We've always tracked our our daily statistics so the total number of flights tracked we all. We've always kept track of that We've recently expanded things on the site to to give a better picture of that. We went from thirty day graft to a ninety day graph as well and we've also edited a moving average there to kind of keep track of things are headed for the first time so today's the nineteenth on the eighteenth of March that was the first time global tracking went down So we are now one percent below where we were at the same time last year. And that's the first time all all the the total number has dropped down. We've also started keeping track of what we're calling commercial flights so those are are scheduled passenger and cargo flights and those numbers are nine percent below where they were last year and and that is an and so that's not nine percent below where we thought they would be or were they were projected to be because I was looking at four point one percent increase for passenger traffic this year and I think a two percent increase for cargo traffic this year so nine percent below last year is an even bigger drop than than what we would expect to have seen this year all things being equal yes so everywhere across the globe capacity cuts in an actual fights operating is is pretty stark this year. Yeah and it's only I mean the will post a graph in in the show notes. But it's were looking at total flights tracked you know in the Below the twenty. Seventeen range now So we've I mean wiped out real gains in in less than a week and and that's going to that's going to continue as airlines wind down it major airlines down a vast majority of the operations looking at the US Delta American united are all parking aircraft at various airports around the US Delta's moving things to to Birmingham Alabama and Miranda Penal Park in Arizona United is using Victorville And also their hub airports The the new Berlin airport is finally getting Getting some use with storage for Lufthansa's fleet So that's a I guess you know an interesting move but they've got That positive note or just some. It's just it's just a data point that I mean it's airlines are soul. Looks like a parking lot Frankfort looks like a parking lot Vienna looks like a parking lot. The these things that you know they just seem so unimaginable a few weeks ago in this this you have no idea. Nobody knows what the outcome of this is Especially in Europe where this is particularly impactful airlines were already teetering on the edge a lot smaller airlines stopped operating. Recently a whole bunch of others were not in the greatest financial health. I wouldn't be surprised if several if not many European airlines do not survive this I mean flyby was the first domino to fall and that was the very early days of this whole outbreak We've had a couple airlines in the US that were about to start thinking about closing down. Maybe towards the end of the year Translate Airlines and now compass airlines have both decided The the Kutcher so dire at this point that they were going to ramp down towards the end of the year and they've decided what we will do it now because we're not fighting for anything right. I mean it's every new is already a sad situation with airlines shutting down in translates thankfully there was going to be some shuffling there but now I mean who knows and the one thing that has been pointed out I think is with all of these cuts keeping crews proficient and rated to fly. Whenever we do start flying again is going to be an interesting challenge. I was reading a bit about that this morning from a pilot who was concerned that that they weren't going to be able to to restart because they wouldn't be able to to legally operate the aircraft. I mean there's layers upon layers upon layers of things that no-one knows how this is going to work. No one really understands the the full impact of this and we're still kind of grappling through some of the minor in

Searching for Summer Shipp
"So summer shipp grew up under her given name Dolores in Granite City Illinois. Her mother Cora raised her and her three brothers alone after their alcoholic. Father left the family. Now Cora raise children as Jehovah's Witnesses and this was a religion there's some are continued to practice throughout her life. She did stop attending services but observed religion. She never celebrated Christmas birthdays. She said that every day was a holiday and she liked by her daughter and her friends gifts when it was her birthday. Isn't that Nice good? Sounds like a nice lady really really nice so some are grew up in extreme poverty under pretty rough circumstances and of this. She has pretty frugal but in our young adulthood she married a wealthy man John Ship and she lived for years in luxury however difficult childhood in Granite City. That never was far from her mind. John Ship was the manager for the local metro-goldwyn-mayer branch. Mgm when he moved to Kansas City from Florida in nineteen sixty nine now summer had moved to Kansas City just a few months previously. She saw the city as a place to forget her pass and she's going to create new life for herself. Yeah that was important to her to kind of start over. The childhood was rough so John. Lived in the same apartment complex as a friend of summers and when she visited that friend at the community pool she really caught Johns I. Some are was not a classic beauty but she was really pretty at five foot one inches tall and just over a hundred pounds. She was tiny but she was a bundle of energy sometimes described as sprightly so although John had a girlfriend at the time he broke things off with her to be with summer in October of nineteen. Seventy summer was pregnant and she told John on the night. He took her to see an advance screening of the movie. Two thousand one a space odyssey and after that they decided to move in together and just see if they could make things work. John's apartment became their first home together and their front door was just feet from the pool so John worked as he floated in the water and Sunday himself. The phone set nearby and when it rang he would just paddle to the edge of the pool and work on deals so this is kind of living the dream. I guess float around in the pool. Yeah phones broke their nice good way to do it but he did work hard. He negotiated film showing contracts for hundreds of theaters throughout Missouri and Kansas. So he was really on his way up in the industry at this point so some are in. John got married at the courthouse with John's brother and a friend of summers as witnesses and they had a daughter who they named Brandy. She had read here like her mother's but even brighter and darker and both summer and John were just thrilled with this little girl. They moved out of the apartment and rented a cottage that summer adored for a while and then as the money kept coming in two years later they moved into a duplex in a very upper class area living near professional football players so John left MGM and but an independent Film Distribution Company called Thomas Films and after he bought it he changed the name to Thomas and ship films. The company was more successful than he had ever could have been able to imagine. He made a ton of money so much money that he felt like he'd WanNa Lottery. Are He come up from humble beginnings himself? Yes I think in summer really didn't know what to do with all this money. It was foreign to both of them and I guess summer was able to kind of not focus on it. She just wasn't that interested in things but I think John it kind of affected him and he got carried away with it here. Well I knew her. Religion would seem to me to make her less desirous of money. And what money can buy share? I mean I'm sure she liked not having to worry about it like she had all her life absolutely and remember up until this time she's still going by her original name. Dolores but when brandy was just a toddler that's when she legally took on her new name. Summer brandies middle name was Alexis so some are named herself summer. Alexis ship and by the time brandy was three. John was making over two hundred thousand dollars a year. And this is the nineteen seventies. So I looked it up. And that's about seven hundred thousand dollars a year equivalent in today's money so ton of money tournament in nineteen seventy four. They bought a two story. English Tudor home in the exclusive Crestwood neighborhood and they had a house with a huge private in ground pool. An Art Gallery Jim Asana just everything. Yes so brandy was Kinda spoiled. When she was a little girl. It was almost unavoidable even though she did get a lot of attention as well as things but like I mentioned John's lifestyle just became out of control as his income was soaring. He spent time on the West and east coasts partying with the rich and famous. Eventually he found himself with an expensive dependence on cocaine and pills and is John pulled away from his home and family life into this life. Some are just kind of channeled her love and attention into raising her daughter. So Brandy got a lot of attention. Showered on her. Maybe too much if that's possible. Do you think that's possible to give a kid too much attention? No again it depends on what kind of attention. Well here's my thought on it. You can give them too much attention if you're allowing them to control you like when you're on the phone they're trying to take your attention away when people come over when you have worked to do. I mean there has to be a respect as well sure. That's why I said it depends on the kind of attention right so I think that it can be a bad thing when you get to the extreme. But that's not really the attention being the problem I guess that's more like the The fruits of the attention. Well yeah it's kind of the control like you want your child to see you as being in control of things when you don't want your child to take over control of what's going on day to day. Well I mean it can really be unhealthy and they can have a rude awakening when they get older. And everybody's not just falling over themselves to please them herbs moving so I think that's another issue is you don't want to raise them to feel entitled to everything so anyway I mean they did love her and it was a nice childhood although she was probably a little bit spoiled. Well how does she turn out? She turns out great. Okay so in. Nineteen seventy six. John took brandy in summer to the cons film festival ru and they spent time with David Kerosene is that the Kung Fu guy. Well that's the Carribean family. I don't know which one is which I think David was Kung-fu guy okay. And cary grant roll my love who carry granted yes. He was in one of my favorite movies. What was it sweep? Listen in Seattle now. An affair to remember. I know I was GONNA say that next so afterwards they went on an extended vacation to London Rome and Paris and they flew back to the United States on the First Air France Concorde flight from Paris to Washington. Dc wrong that's That's cool that's cool. That's Nice. Yes where she? Oh totally. And some are just felt like this poor country girl who was living like royalty. John became one of the biggest independent film distributors in the country and they were dining with. Paul Newman Joanne Woodward and Clint Eastwood Big names. Very big names especially in the seventies absolutely well when still around working yeah. He's still big but as her life was changing. Some are really didn't change. Who she was and I respect that. While John was traveling all over the world she stayed home and spent time with her daughter. She also invited other children over for play dates reading books and singing with them so she liked to share in her good fortune which. I think is so important. She even took time to volunteer at a home for emotionally disturbed young women and as a reward for good behavior. She would bring some of the girls to her house to swim for a day and loved it and they worked hard and did things so that they could earn a day at the pool so are like summer. She sounds like she's cutter head on straight and she's living the life. Well you know it's funny because they started reading the book about summer than I found online and I had no idea I was going to do the case but I did just feel such an affection for this woman that I enjoyed reading the book. It wasn't like work and I really enjoyed being able to Read about her in her life. Of course Jon was away a lot of the time. And he had his drinking habits in his drug habits so understandably their marriage suffered. There is a large Christmas office party in the late seventies when summer walked in on John and he and other parties were snorting large amounts of cocaine right on his desk so she walked out feeling pretty angry and worried at the same time. Sure I mean not only worried John but for her daughter you know. It's just very risky behavior. That he was getting into their relationship was getting more and more distant. Rose probably not a lot of good that comes out of a cocaine addiction or a drug addiction for that matter in marriage right. Something's going to happen well and it's interesting that when things stopped going so well for John and he has to really deal with things he does get better. So by nineteen eighty. His company started going downhill and the small films that John Distributed. Were really being snatched up by the major film companies without that business. He was quickly falling behind on his debts and he fell into some deep financial trouble because he hadn't saved enough. He was a big spender and happens. Cocaine is not free. I know but wouldn't you just put enough in a savings somewhere? In case the bottom falls out as a backup will most people would but a lot of people disfigure that. There's no end to this stuff. I guess you feel that way now is at this very very successful company. Money's just rolling in. I'd be of the opinion that this no change in that things are going to keep happening for me. Well and I'm kind of surprised that the way summer grew up that she didn't squirrel away more money because I personally waiting for the other shoe to drop and I liked to be prepared. Well Yeah but she did. She work well not really now. Not at that point or any money. She had came through her husband. Sheriff so what you're going to say to him honey. I need an extra thousand this week. 'cause I'm saving for when you go bankrupt? Well I just say. I WANNA start a savings account. I WANNA put a thousand dollars a week away and it shouldn't have fazed him when he was making so much
