"British Airways goes gender neutral, male pilots and cabin crew told they can wear makeup and carry handbags regardless of gender and sexual identity. British Airways will allow male pilots to wear makeup and carry handbags in an overhaul of the airline strict uniform rules. Airline bosses reportedly told staff in an internal memo be bold be proud be yourself. That's bold. Carry a handbag if you're a pilot, male pilot. Said they hope that the refreshed guidance would be embraced by everyone regardless of gender, gender identity ethnicity background culture, sexual identity or otherwise. British Airways was said to be nearing the end of a review of its long-standing uniform policy after rival Virgin Atlantic announced that was making its traditional male and female uniform gender neutral. So now, your male flight attendant can wear a skirt. Something you definitely want your kids to see. Because we are having a real problem in America and Britain. With kid with boys being too masculine. So God forbid that that should happen. Let's show them male models of skirt wearers and mascara wearers. And handbag carriers. The war against sexual distinction. My book, my commentary, the third volume of my Bible commentary, called the rational Bible. Just came out last month. It's in the 5th of the 5 books. I have two more to go. I didn't go in order, obviously. It's deuteronomy, the 5th book. And it's got a law that a man can not wear women's clothing. Can't get more obvious than that of the conflict between the Bible and the woke. So choose your value system, my Friends. When the woke say they have contempt for the Bible, I at least respect their honesty. It's the Christian and Jewish clergy. Who are awoke and claimed that their biblical that are the bigger sinners. Its uniform guidelines have been traditionally divided by gender, but recently, BA British Airways has tried to modernize its image and last year dropped ladies and gentlemen in announcements in a bid to make all customers feel welcome. How many non binary customers does British Airways have? What does that mean make all customers comfortable? I'm not comfortable, they're dropping ladies and gentlemen has brought me discomfort. So why is my discomfort of no significance, but the discomfort of the non binary passengers of whom there may be zero? Or very close to zero, that is dispositive. Why? Because it has nothing to do with comfort. It has to do with shattering the civilization as we know it. This gives people on the left meaning the destruction brings meaning. Male pilots and cabin crew of BA have been told they can wear a touch of mascara and lip color and false eyelashes and paint their nails. This will draw a lot of masculine men into the profession of pilots. It's really something strict rules on hairstyles have also been, meaning men may now wear man buns. And all staff may now wear a handbag regardless of their sex or gender identity. But the airline will still keep its ban on visible tattoos. Isn't that an interesting thing? Why would that be? I'd rather have a visible tattoo than a handbag. On the guy or a skirt? Yeah. Even you, right, and you root for NBA teams based on who has the fewest tattoos, which means you don't root for any NBA teams. They will also not make any changes to their physical uniform with male and female gender specific uniforms..

"Actually sending money back and forth each time, they're kind of reconciling at the end of the day or every other day. It changes over time, but they're batching multiple transactions together into final settlements that happen over settlement networks like fedwire. And so what fed water do itself? So fed wire is operated by the Federal Reserve. And that is a gross interbank settlement system. So basically what that does is it handles a relatively small number of very large transactions, and that's final settlement. Final sentiments between the banks, like leveling up what banks should have at the end of each day. And there are other systems, but that one's huge. And so roughly speaking every year, you might have 200 million payments, which is not a lot for a whole economy. The size of the United States, but it settles hundreds of trillions of dollars worth of value because it's gross value. And each transaction is millions. And what happens with the international transactions? How does that work? Is that a similar thing? They use the swift swift system for communication and then different errors will have different settlement networks. Right. Equivalent to said what? Yes. Okay. And in terms of the middlemen who are taking a little bit of a cut. How many different people are taking a cut at this? Well, you're having the networks take a cut. So Visa and Mastercard take their cut. And then you also have the merchant bank. So if I have a credit card and I'm buying something from you. Your bank is taking a cut for accepting that card. And then my bank is taking a cut. And then the network is taking. So there's multiple people. At least three parties along the way that are taking a cut. As a percent of a transaction, do we know all the companies are like 3%? It's like somewhere around 3%. It will vary a little bit based on the network. Yeah, it's around 3%. So yeah, I mean, so if you're spending hundreds of thousands of years at a 100,000, 100,000 pounds is a business each year, you're paying thousands in fees. Yes, I mean, the way it normally constructed is that the merchant really is paying the fees. Okay. So the user is not really paying the fees. And if anything, they're often getting rewards. That entice people to use them, which entices merchants to accept them. But that's often why you'll see merchants have a lower price if you pay in cash because they're basically if they accept cards, which they pretty much have to do if they really want to get most business. They're paying a pretty fat fee on that. And so that's really where the fee comes from. But of course, if the merchant is paying the fee, it really means that the price their product has to be high enough to take an account that fee. So the consumer is still paying it by paying slightly higher prices at the merchant. Yeah, well, I didn't just be British Airways. They charge a different fee depending on the card issuer as well. I think AmEx you pay a higher fee and also if it's a corporate debit card you pay a higher fee. Yes. I've seen that as well.

"Bypass the usual scrutiny of the office for budget responsibility. Now this has sort of now causing a few waves with the paper saying it almost now creeps towards the fact that the OBR is the latest institute to be sidelined for sordid political purposes, so they sort of touching on this. The OBR was created a decade ago by George Osborne to try and keep governments honored and as the independent Caesar it now represents an impediment to Liz truss's reckless dogmatic tax cutting agenda, the paper goes as far as describing the Tory leadership candidates proposals as an economic dictatorship now, those are pretty strong lines in that editorial there. And as we know, we now are hearing that Rishi sunak will not be in this trust as cabinet because he also does an agree with her when it comes to the economy. Yeah, I mean, I think there's a really interesting debate and actually Bloomberg's Joe Mays has a really interesting piece on the terminal our government and treasury reporter. He talks about this very issue about whether the office of budget responsibility should be weighing in if there is a kind of emergency budget here in the UK or not. I mean, usually for big long-term fiscal plans, then it does. But sometimes the shorter term emergency issues it doesn't. And this is the argument being made by the trust campaign they're saying that this is a situation which needs immediate action and likening it to what Richie soon acted during the pandemic where they also bought bypass the OBR process because it's a time thing, right? You're talking about the OBR usually needs ten weeks to put its estimates together. If Liz trust wants to have a budget on this 22nd of September before the recess and the 22nd of September, that means that she's going to have to bypass this process. And that's where this debate is coming from. But this is pretty blistering. It is blistering, but then our first story was hitting 18% inflation. And our first story is saying that the energy regulator off gem on Friday is going to announce this new price cut and charities are concerned people are concerned, so is an emergency budget needed, this is the conversation that we are having now. Yeah, listen, a lot of people are saying that absent a kind of leader really right now, certainly a kind of functioning government right now that perhaps actually the emergency is happening currently. But look, other issues away from just the politics and the economics British Airways cutting more flights is this more travel chaos. I just feel like I wanted to end on a high note and I'm really sorry if you book some holiday I apologize but British Airways is to cut more than 10,000 flights from its winter schedule and one of the clearest signs yet that the airline bosses expect staff shortages and disruption that is really plagued the industry this summer to last into next year. We've seen those pictures haven't we or baggage everywhere and people queuing. It's all kind of got under control now, but that's really since we've seen that cap on people being able to fly out of Heathrow Airport, but this really is the latest blow for the aviation industry which has cut thousands of jobs during the pandemic and is struggling to rehire quickly enough to meet the demand Caroline because we all want to go on holiday, don't we? Yes, we definitely do. We've had a little holiday in August. Thank you so much for being with us this morning. Yeah, looking at all of our newspaper stories. Let's get back to those big energy stories that we're covering for you today. We're joined from Singapore by Bloomberg's energy and commodities editor Andrew James, Andrew, going back to this comment by the Saudi energy minister, talking about potential for OPEC plus reducing supplies. What sort of impact could that have? Hi there. Well, the Saudi energy minister sort of made comments to the effect that the Saudis. I think there's a disconnect in the market between futures and sort of market fundamentals used prices like harmful volatility and substantiated stories about demand distraction. So yes, there was there was a big drop yesterday when the comments came out, oil was down almost 5% at one point. But it actually came back to close little change. We're up a bit tomorrow. At the moment, but less than 1%. I mean, the backdrop to all of this is prices are down about 25% since early June. So they've obviously fallen too far for the Saudis. And it's sort of interesting to contrast their attitude when prices are on the way up when they were very sort of hands off and we can't do too much now that price is falling considerably there talking about decisive action. So the next OPEC plus meeting is early September and the sort of creates the expectation that they will cut back on some production. They've only basically just fully restored all the production that they took offline during the pandemic. So yeah, we're looking at production cats. But the market reaction would suggest that no one is expecting a major cut. Okay, Andrew, thank you so much for being with us, Bloomberg's energy commodities editor Andrew James coming up next on the

"Radio 1000 FM 97 7. It might be a little harder to find a flight for that fall trip you've been thinking about. Nearly every major airline in the United States is it will drastically cut fall flying schedules. Andy field has taken a closer look for ABC News and spoke with Bill O'Neill. You know, Andy, we might call this addition by the way of subtraction as the airlines look to how to avoid all of those problems we've seen time and again in recent months. Yeah, the airlines are saying that they are trying to get back to where they were before the pandemic in 2019. Remember way back then. And they said that usually they cut the flights back in the fall, but of course they had huge staff spec then. They don't have that anymore. And we saw it this summer where flights were delayed not necessarily because of weather in all cases, but because it wasn't a pilot to fall and fly the plane or enough flight attendants to legally get it off the ground or even ground crew to handle the bags or gate agents to get people onto the plane. That was a major headache for almost every airline. And there are still COVID sickouts. To this day, we're well past two years of the pandemic and it's still happening. And so the airline said instead of constantly disappointing passengers and of course racking up all these fees that they have to pay every time they have to cancel flight, they have to either pay people voucher fees or actual cash out of their pocket, which is not good for the bottom line, they have decided we're just going to scale everything back. So instead of having a bunch of flights from Des Moines to Chicago and then from Chicago to Seattle, if they have ten, 15 flights a day, maybe they'll cut it down to 7 flights a day. And that's dramatically taking some of the pressure off the staffing, the fuel costs and everything else. So it may be a little tougher to find for smaller cities to find flights that aren't full or exist anymore. But the major hubs are probably not going to cut back much. And of course, if we look at this in a supply and demand kind of lens, if you will, that could mean more expensive tickets to fly, right? Well, we think that already, that just as an example, I live in Washington D.C., my family lives in New England. Used to be able to get $99 tickets one way, which was fantastic. Sometimes even cheaper. Those tickets don't exist anymore. You're lucky if you can get a two to two to $300 one way ticket from a relatively short airline flight from Washington to New England. And you're seeing that all over the country. It's very hard to get those discounted rates unless you're willing to give up a whole lot of things like selected seat or carrying a bag on flight or if you want to pay extra. You've seen those super low cost airlines like spirit airlines doing those things, but most of the larger carriers, they're kind of charging you for everything just to make up the difference in the fuel costs and the extra cost that they have to pay for the flight crews to be on standby in some of these places that they just don't have enough people. And of course we know just about every airline will be following this model, but there is one exception that's kind of notable here. Southwest appears to have managed to Dodge this bullet. I don't know that it was because they have more flights if they have more planes, they have more pilots, whatever the reason is they've managed this better than others. Although they've had some pretty big issues this summer where they had outages with the pilots and so they are either paying people more, they are making sure people are in standby, but they think they can handle a bigger schedule than some of the other airlines.

"The last commercial supersonic flight was almost 20 years ago, and even then super fast flights were only on very limited routes. Most of today's jetliners actually fly more slowly than they did 20 or 30 years ago in order to save fuel. But that may be about to change.

Sorry, I should have called you, I apologize. But here you are. Look at that. He appeared. And he called us. Give us some travel tips, Micah. Well, I will, actually. You've got to be very careful these days. SAS Scandinavian airlines is just filed for bankruptcy. Oh no. I thought they were government owned. Technically, they're not exactly government owned. You know how those European agencies sort of work. They never quite sure, but I loved SAS. I used to fly whenever I could. They're a great airline, but it shows why you got to pay attention to things and always pay for your tickets with a credit card because again, they're still flying. But you never know whether or not going to fly. So if you're going to book a flight, don't book on SAS right now because they filed for bankruptcy. You don't know what's going to happen. I thought it was a strike. So it's not just a strike. No, the SAS has filed for declared bankruptcy in the USA. And that came out about three days ago. And who knows exactly what's going to happen with that. Their own by Sweden and Denmark. I don't understand. How can that happen? Oh man, all right. It's not chapter 7, at least as chapter 11. It's reorganization. And the problem is with the strike from its pilots, they're losing money fast. So everybody's having trouble with pilots and losing money. And in fact, British Airways is another airline to watch out for. They have scrapped over 10,000 flights through the summer season and they're canceling more flights all the time. I've had friends that were on British Airways when their flight got canceled and they got stuck in Copenhagen. And it goes to show you that whenever you're traveling these days, have travel insurance. Travel regularly, you should be purchasing an annual plan so that you're always covered.

"If they cancel one of my connecting flights, and I'm still able to get to the next flight somehow in time, will they still honor it? Also, I have another suggestion on a book that you don't want to write. The information regards to financial literacy is always changing. What if you write a book on how to decipher accurate information and make a decision? A book that doesn't give specific advice but rather teaches the reader how to figure things out for themselves. So the book thing won't die. Nope. It won't. Okay. All right. Thank you for your your book suggestion, along with the many, many oh, there were other criteria. Right. So American Airlines is in a full partner with British Airways. If American ends up having scheduled changes, they have the added flexibility with British Airways extensive European network. Figuring out how to route you on American to a British Airways connecting flight and get you to your destination in Switzerland. American is obviously been going through a bunch of schedule changes as they have recently cut back a significant amount of flights that they're flying through the winner. So you need to monitor your reservation frequently and the earlier you notice there's a schedule change that impacts you, you want to be on the phone with American and hopefully a clear weather day around the country where you can reach someone and get rebooked and always give the suggestion why notice I want you to research yourself. British Airways has this flight or that flight at the other? Could you reroute me on British? And it's fully interchangeable. I'm telling you so they could completely do that. And yes, you should get to Switzerland and no paying seat booking fees does not help you with the problem with airlines saying now you see the flight now you don't. And this is from Jonathan and Alaska. I recently rented a car through a booking website and they charged my card a $180. I ended up not needing the car for as long as I thought. And I returned it early to the car rental company who only charged me $66 for the rental. I contacted the website which was a nightmare and they refused to give me any money back. Is there anything outside of disputing this with my credit card company that I can do? Yeah, Jonathan, the customer, no service with the third party website. You booked your car.

"York route generated a $1 billion annually for British Airways alone and Bloomberg's guy Johnson is live from Heathrow for us this morning great to have you on the show guy So it's obviously a very big deal for BA but also for others Yeah Virgin Atlantic for instance 70% of its profitability effectively came from the North Atlantic The clue is in the name there So it's hugely pleased to finally see this rehab This reopening Caroline this route for Europeans for the rest of the world has effectively been closed for 18 months U.S. travelers have been able to move across the Atlantic But we Europeans have not been able to go the other way You have to take a PCR test You have to take advantage test Two hours prior to departure you have to be fully vaccinated But that's it So it should be recently straightforward But the expectation is the demand will pick up quite quickly There's a huge amount of pent up demand certainly for people to go and visit their friends to go and visit their relatives though they have been able to see for such a long period of time The real question is how will it take a business travel to come back Because that's where the real profitability comes from And that the expectation is we'll take a little bit longer from here That's what we also get to be a little less capacity on these routes they've retired a lot of the older aircraft including the huge 7 four 7s the number of three 80s coming out of this route as well So there's going to be probably as many flights at some point but just less seats So they're hoping that they'll be able to maintain profitability going forward but there will be huge amounts of competition between all the major groups in terms of moving people across the Atlantic So I think it's going to be interesting to see what ultimately happens with pricing And then you've got to deal with higher fuel and you've got to do a higher rate So there's a number of headwinds still existing Okay and it's not just of course from Europe There are more than 30 countries that are reopening It's also China India South Africa as well as all of the Schengen countries in Europe So this is a big deal globally isn't it It is a big deal globally As you say the North Atlantic is probably one of the most profitable and airlines effective like BA and virgin have been built around it But reopening has taken a very very long time And airlines obviously have huge amounts of capacity going in and out of all they had huge amounts of threat to be going in and out of the United States So the opportunity to restart all of that will certainly be broadly welcome any opportunity to sort of transition from a short or recovery I think Europe into the United States into a long haul recovery is going to be hugely welcomed by this industry Okay Heathrow what does it mean for them and as you say there are lots of headwinds still aren't there Lots of headwinds still Fuel prices have absolutely rocketed now and European carriers tend to hedge a little bit more than the United States but nevertheless that is going to be a massive headwind And the amount of debt that's been built up during the pandemic obviously will mean that if interest rates are to go higher the cost of their debt which largely is fixed but still some of it is going to be floating will have some kind of an effect So there are going to be certainly challenges coming forward But he throw is a huge step forward They're making that clear today in terms of the importance of this event You are going to have a virgin aircraft on one run rate You're going to have a British Airways aircraft on another runway They're both going to take off at the same time I've just spoken to shy wife CEO of virgin He says in their airlines history that has never happened before Absolutely I mean that's the photo op of course that merging Atlantic is so well known for And we're going to bring that interview to our listeners your interview with the Virgin Atlantic CEO shy Weiss just a little bit later on this morning guy Great to have you on We'll speak to you a bit later You'll give us all the buzz from Heathrow this morning So thanks to guy Johnson life on Heathrow Airport this morning as travel charts Atlantic travel reopens as guy was saying after 18 months In fact about close to 4 million Brits visited the U.S..

"It and after cova will fly a lot for work again. So don't ask me how. I fell down this particular hole but i was reading about what it takes to be an air traffic controller and Jobs are like and there was a bunch of stuff. I didn't know that for example air traffic controllers have to retire at age fifty six. They are not allowed to work beyond age fifty six. You know i'm gonna. I'm gonna jump in here. I think i heard that one time. But i i don't recall it. I'm going to say good part of the reason that the faa makes air traffic controllers retire by h fifty six. It's not because at age fifty six. You know your local. Why don't know where i am but because so much like you just said about vision. So much of the job requires like really keen vision and super sharp reaction times and yes fast responses and so i went on youtube and started listening to air traffic controllers recordings from all around the country in the world. I stumbled across one where this took place at the airport in dublin and the lead air. Traffic controller is a woman's cortez this beautiful irish accent. And it's a very. It happened to take place on one of the busiest days of the year at the dublin airport.

"Today's podcast is sponsored by jennings executive search. I had a great conversation with john jennings about the skills needed in different pricing roles. He and i think a lot of like if you're looking for a new pricing role or if you're trying to hire just the right pricing person. I strongly suggest you reach out to jennings executive search. They specialize in placing pricing people. Say that three times fast. Welcome to impact pricing the podcast where we discuss pricing value and these segmented relationship between them. I'm march diving today. Our guest is oil yon bat. Ajaria here are three things before we start is pricing for over thirteen years. He curly runs his own. Consulting company. In auckland new zealand and he's an exit adrenaline junkie. As am i so welcome. Thank you very much budget to build. And then it's gonna be fun. So how did you get into pricing. My love affair with pricing started the vacuum school with a little bit of a household buying and selling niche products from france. And this will slow spy insulting to other students. And one thing i realized was that i would keep increasing price until i hit some sort of resistance or i started to lose customers and it turned out to be quite a savvy way to gauge willing to pay fast forward ten years and probably my major kind of venture into the world of pricing and revenue management was at british airways which is also one of the most sophisticated industries that you can go into with regards to in a price. Infantry management customer segmentation price fences that they have in place so that really sort of spots by my passion. But i've always been sort of intrigued by the psychology behind. How consumers like purchase decisions. And i love the fact that prices both an art and science. That's an odd in the sense. That value is always sort of easily quantifiable. And it's a science in the sense that data and analytics and pricing research. Are your best friend now. Cool so i always. I'm always jealous of people who got to praise in the airline industry because you know from an outside point of view we see so many weird things going on and i would love to have sat inside there at one point in time and seen how they make those decisions. How did they decide what they're gonna do here and there but you mentioned price fences tell me about price fences in.

Narrow body landed at london heathrow this morning after departing from jet blues new york. Jfk base last night that flight launched jet blue's entry into the transatlantic market beginning with daily service from jfk to heathrow and then adding daily service to london gatwick ultimately following with Boston to london. Ceo robin hayes. A former executive at british airways has promised to create a permanent and disruptive effect in the transatlantic market. So joining me today to discuss. What that could mean are two of my aviation week network colleagues north american air transport editor but ben goldstein and kepler senior analyst for the americas laurie ransom. Hey ben laurie great to have you on this. Thank you so to start off by just looking at that whole history that we know all too well of Long haul low cost carriers Starting up especially in the transatlantic market and more often than not failing What do you think might make this a different prospect with a jet blue and will this like jetblue like robin says be transatlantic disruptor. What are your thoughts laurie. Well i think as you said. Jetblue is one of america's most light brands and they have strongholds in new york and boston so they have strong point of sale here in the us. And i think that's a little bit different than some of the point to point carriers that had tried to do this in the past where if by bodies

The the site is too deep for divers to go down and gets looking at the senior officers marsupial robotic vehicle to go out of the aircraft which is probably going to take awhile yes. They have at least identified location of the craft like we talked about last week. So that's kind of step one and the biggest step is the finding things that's good more. follow up. Let's talk about covering unwanted holes jason. Ooh dangerous topic. But okay continue so. We talked in depth last week about the british airways seven eight seven that had an unfortunate incident wherein maintenance was being performed and they cycled the gear and a series of failures to follow proper procedures led to the nose landing gear retracting during maintenance event. And i believe when we first talked about this. Jason knows go. Boop was the technical term. I have not yet been able to find that in either. The faa airworthiness directive nor the u. a. ib report. He keep on. I think it might be in the glossary. We briefly mentioned. I think last week the fact that there was an air worthiness directive following the twenty nineteen event where a similar situation occurred. And the faa said. Hey you should put a cover on this whole and airlines had thirty six months to cover up the borehole that is directly next to the nose landing gear locked pinhole and so. There's a little piece of plastic that airlines are supposed to install. Ba had not yet gotten around to doing this and they have now said. We're going to accelerate the installation of the apex. Pin bore cover. Hey that's great. That happening again a little late but better late than never. Yeah so that is where they are with that. The investigation into the right pain in the wrong hole continues and i'm sure we'll be back with more in a future date. Hopefully not reporting on another incident like this. I am now happy to report that. Jason and i will be bidding for the all italian naming rights. Jason doesn't know this but he's agreed to it. So congratulations on that. So the new italian airline the new company that is scheduled to be taking over what used to be. All italia is coming online. And there'd called. It a which stands for italian transport to aero or italy or transport very creative naming. But we'll go with it. No one has any idea. What the logo or branding for that particular airline is going to be. But there's going to be a public auction for the alitalia branding which. It says that it will compete for in my mind having experienced the wonders of italian bureaucracy. A few times. I'm going to go out on say vanu airline will probably end up being called alitalia. Wonder how much end up paying for the naming rights of their own airline. It's definitely strange. So what if somebody outbids can somebody else startup. alitalia two point oh while. It has to come up with a new more creative name. but do you have to start an airline. I guess that's my question. I mean you could just own the all italian branding. it'll be like the people that own the pan branding. I mean so bags and coats and hats and things like that. But you don't have to have an airline now. I guess it is valuable brand name. People know it people. I guess generally like brand. Not quite sure i'm indifferent but i can't imagine it will end up in.

"Joining us from ABC News. Watching the airports is watching the roads. He's watching the train tracks. Here's one thing with the T s a Is there like new technology out there that they're using? So passengers can have less contact with officers? Yeah, so a couple of things that they're doing one is that they are you know how many times you've got to the airport, and the line is a mile long, and they've got one lane open. Come on. Well, they're trying to open up all the lanes so that you don't have people bunching together. And so the African taken socially distance now hi tech wise, and they're going back to the administrator, David, because key he's Says, Yeah, they're trying all kinds of different things now and one of them being that when you go up and you hand them your ID that you don't actually have to do that to a human when you come up and you present your driver's license or your passport to the officer in many airports now that's more of an automated process. Where rather than handing off your driver's license or your passport. You just inserted into a machine yourself, and then you take it out yourself when that process is done, eh? So that's our effort to reduce contact. So that way you don't have to these days through a hole in the plexiglass handing your idea and they look at you and you know, you kind of go back and forth. They tell you take down your mask, and then they hand it back to you on then the other thing they're trying to do, and this will take a while.

737 MAX update: The MAX gets its first order of 2020

"Brought down. This is our 737. Max. Update for this particular episode Canada in its I want to concurrent quest to recertified aircraft transport Canada will be taking the seventh time Amax on a test flight of their own. So the FAA formerly would. Do Certification, and then let Canada Yeah. It's fine. The planes good to go. We'll. We've certified it in Canada would say okay, that's good enough for us. This time around Canada wants to fly themselves so that supposed to happen this week. So by the time, the podcast comes out on Friday that will likely have already occurred, but you can you can search shop. We don't know for sure but it will likely be the seven three, seven, Max Seven. Test Craft seven two, zero, one S. so we'll put link in the show notes to that flight if it does happen by the time. The podcast comes out to. The Max also got its first order of twenty twenty. Spend all times. It's the last order was. The British Airways Order Alley. Ear Show Way Back? Yes. So the first symptoms of Max Order Twenty twenty goes to enter air and we're not talking about a large number it's two plus options for two right. So not a huge vote of confidence but vote of confidence nonetheless. Interesting to say the least I would not. If I were a smaller line like enter, I would not be signing agreements to purchase new aircraft when you probably have. Vast choice of. Used grounded aircraft globally right now but hey, maybe they got a good deal. One would assume that the delay got was. Better than good. I hope. So I don't know what airline right now is a in the position to purchase new aircraft and be. Sees the need to. When you're just talking about two and potentially four. It was very very unclear to me why they would be purchasing the aircraft at this point. Maybe, there was some type of financing to be had or something like that. Bigger deal. Boeing has a large number of maxis sitting on the ground for customers that don't exist anymore, and for customers that don't want anymore to top I guess would be Jet Airways. So those aircraft have gotta go somewhere at some point. So Boeing probably just cut them a very substantially good deal. Yeah. Yeah exactly. One of the interesting things about this order was the nomenclature the Boeing uses to describe. The purchase. And there was a a bit made about this. You know when the when the press release came out announcing this order they refer to the aircraft. Now is the seven, three, seven, Dash Eight. Only in the headline, right which was. Interesting because they use Max everywhere else. They used it five times otherwise throughout out the press release both Boeing and enter air interchangeably. So it wasn't just one or the other the only place left out was the headline. So I, disagree with anyone saying that they have dropped the Max branding. Oh. Isn't the case yet? No I they I certainly haven't dropped the. Max Branding but I thought it was interesting that it was included in the headline and not just noted in the in the piece. I wish we could kind of settle this once and for all and uncertainly you would hire not going to be able to but I'm just I thought we had all gone and said you know this is just This is still the Max moving on and but maybe that's not the case if they're gonNA rename it. I wish they would do it sooner rather than later because we've got a lot of database entries to make up if that's the case. So it it would have been so much easier from the beginning we had just all decided to call it the seven, three, seven, Dash, eight, seven, three, seven, Dash, nine in the Max could have been some sort of branding. Exercise I don't think they'll do it I don't think they'll change. That would be admitting defeat admitting that the aircraft is so broken that you have to rename it and all of their rhetoric and press materials so far has been this is a great aircraft in will be a great aircraft. So why change the name? If you think that yeah, I, I agree with you I agree I don't think they'll D at. The end of discussion. No but I don't think they'll change but I'm saying you know if airlines push to change it will what do you do that I mean when you've got, you've got a group of. It's not Max to us. It's the you know the seven, three, seven, Dash Eight, and remember we we already saw this happen feels like an eternity go but several months ago, Ryan, one of Ryanair's newest seventy Max's came out of the factory was painted not with seven, three, seven, Max Eight, seven, seven, three, seven, Dash Eight, whatever the variant of their super high capacity Yeah, right. But it did not say Max on the nose. Setting aside I think it's still kind of bonkers. They'RE GONNA fit two hundred people. On on seven, three seven but that's It's almost like it's not natural in shouldn't happen.

Boeing 747s still get critical updates via floppy disks

"Apparently, the Boeing seven seven still uses floppy disks. This finding comes from a video tour of a British Airways seven, forty, seven by cybersecurity firm pen test partners that was displayed at the hackers conference. DEFCON British Airways recently retired it's seven, forty, seven fleet, which is how the firm was able to get this kind of usually exclusive access. The biggest takeaway from the tour for many however was the three and a half inch floppy drive. As a reminder for the young or forgetful eight three and a half inch floppy disk can only hold about one point, forty four megabytes that's less than one MP three of an average length song. Quoting his moto apparently, the drive is the seven forty sevens novelization database later and needs to be updated every twenty eight days as in some poor engineer has to visit seven, forty, seven, four, hundred and manually deliver updates or the planes wouldn't be able to fly, and it's not just the seven forty sevens per the verge. The majority of Boeing seven thirty sevens are also updated via floppy disks operators of these planes according to a two thousand fourteen aviation today report have binders full of floppy disks for all the avionics that they may need. That includes important information like airport's runways flightpaths and way points used by pilots to make flight plans. It also sounds horribly inefficient as while some systems may only require one floppy disk updates. Others could require as many as eight floppy discs end quote. Now the seven forty seven did debut in nineteen, eighty eight. So being designed originally with a floppy disk drive makes perfect sense, but it is surprising they've never added. Although. It turns out that a number of industries still use floppy disks or have only recently started to phase them out according to digital trends machines like once used for embroidery, some medical equipment, ATM's and. Aviation hardware all frequently still rely on floppy disks because the machinery was built to last for decades and is extremely expensive to replace. In fact, until just last year, the US Department of Defense was using eight inch floppy disks for the nuclear weapons. System.

Long live the Queen: We say goodbye to a big chunk of the passenger 747 fleet

"In the last episode Jason said. Go What did I say you said that you could still fly on a British Airways seven, four seven at the time that I said it that was a true statement. And it was a true statement for all of seventy two hours. Then British Airways said, no, you can't. No, you can't they're gone. They're gone effective immediately and we will never fly again. We don't even know if they're going to get any sort of official sendoff for celebration or anything do the at calm rumors necessarily but kind of scuttle. But around the water cooler such as it is says that they are not inclined to participate in any sort of send off because of the current climate they find themselves in. Well. That is just extremely on physician by I think more. So than any other airliner, even really any other aircraft and I know people are going to argue in bicker about this. And L. means emails. Two four DOT com. When I, think of British Airways I think of the seven four, seven I think of the seven four, seven, I think of British Airways the two are intrinsically linked. To imagine a British Airways were about seven, four seven is really difficult for me. Yeah. It's. It's of those things that You know there was a couple. Are a couple lines that you immediately associate the seven, four seven with an obviously the the first and foremost him just because of the history there. But then when when you kind of think of like the top three or four airlines, I, immediately think British Airways KLM. And the. KLM has already retired or I think mostly retired. So they have to serving in in cargo capacity to combat serving cargo Carl only capacity. But but yeah, they're not flying passengers and yeah and KLM only had a few towards the later days but British Airways a significant chunk of its widebody fleet was still seven four. Yeah I mean they were operating a fleet of thirty. So I mean that's not we're down to two tons of with twenty eight young. British Airways we see to retire its entire seven, four, seven fleet by either twenty, twenty, three, twenty, four, twenty, four. So the writing the wall but the wall we've got a whole lot closer right the the wall basically fell. Fell on top of the fleet but there are still some four sevens out there. There are still chances may be two to fly them. Should you want to go out and do that? Obviously, your best chance is going to be Lufthansa at some point, they haven't announced anything about retiring. There's they're putting them into two storage. Planning bring them back So twenty, their Korean Airlines has twelve China Airlines has four Air China has eight, and then you kind of start to whittle things down I. I would say that the under a Russia has nine, but I would say that there's a good chance that may be Thai Airways with eight is probably not bringing there's back or if they do, it won't be for long. But I could be wrong. Indy only has four in. It'll be interesting to see what they ended up doing with there's and then there's a few charter airlines like wellness has five and Atlas Air has four. So you can't really book a ticket on those but you know you've got stand up on you. You've got a decent chance of flying on those if you book a ticket on other airlines. So thankfully at least for my New York City centric mind, we have three airlines that to be the three airlines operate the seven, four, seven, Dash Eight. Tonnes a Korean Air, China all at some point operated the the dash eight two K. typically in the summer. So I hope we see them again. But honestly, there is a a likely reality in which JFK does not see a seven, four, seven in regular passenger service. Again, I don't think it's out of the question that that's a possibility and that makes me very, very sad. Yeah. I. Mean I. I was thinking about this the other day when we were putting kind of listing who who, still flying him and things like that and and I was supposed to do a trip hin in April. Originally, we were going to do something really cool and one of the things that I was really looking forward to flying the Lufthansa's dash eight but did not get that chance but maybe next year year after it'll still be there and still be a possibility. But yeah, I. Mean the fleet was just such you know. That that livery. Deliveries on the for seven just looked so good and then when they did the the heritage liveries games, they just looked so
