Berlin’s Brandenburg Airport is open!
"Some happened and i cannot believe that i am about to say this. Say what is it going to be. It can't be as unbelievable as what i think. You're going to tell me. I think it might be berlin. Brandenburg airport finally open. How it finally. it's only eternity late will. What's the official number of years late. This report. I think it's a an changed almost nine years late. I think it's years late nine years late. Billions of euros over budget. The airline it was built to be a home hub for hasn't existed in three years. Air berlin is long gone into the dust of the history books of aviation and had the opening go. Let's just say that the inaugural ceremonial opening of the airport went just about as well as the construction period and previous nine years. Well no i. It went better than that. Actually i mean it has to a gun better than that. It's pointing landed in billions of euros. Evaporate it. They didn't accidentally land in new berlin wisconsin. Or something like that but no it was on brand show. He say the plan had been for parallel arrivals on the two runways for an easy jet flight and aloof tons of flight and the flight numbers were written such that. It noted that it was the thirty first of october in the year. Twenty twenty it was easyjet. Three one one zero and lufthansa twenty twenty. They were supposed to touch down at the exact same moment and ceremonially open the airport. The weather had other plans as the weather often does. There was poor weather and they had to all land on a single runway one after the other but that was fine they landed they taxied. They gonna water cannon salute. It'll look nice. Will picture that in the show notes because it does a good water. cannon salutes. always nice thing. we're met something. I know i've seen this raised before and i'm also a little confused. Why they weren't able to conduct a parallel rent landing on these two runways when they're spaced out more than a mile apart from each other. That's a question. I'd like to see if somebody can answer as why. They couldn't conduct a parallel landing. When the runways are are not all that close together it's not like newark. Sfo where running literally one hundred feet apart from each other. What happened here. What i heard from a few people. And i haven't been able to confirm this so there might be some gray area in here as the categories of the aisle system on the other runway whether or not it can support the particular conditions that they found themselves in that may have had something to do with it. But if you've got an authoritative source by all means drop us a note at podcast at if our two four dot com or if you've been in the airport i know we've got a few emails over the years that inform us on the progress of the opening of the. I know it's been a kind of a joke. Among those who follow these sorts of but i was being generous. I know that has been the laughing. Stock of the industry's air better okay. But it's open and they begin their first real operations later this week. Where were the kind of move. Everybody things like so. It happened so we have to pick something else to point

"Are being furloughed but eventually are going to have to to lose their jobs and less some dramatic turnaround happens. What is the quality of the the Killer really to the home business? Because if you decide now that you're going on holiday be late summer sun or driven towards skiing if you've then got to quarantine for two weeks when you get back. Well many people. Do that that obviously not I mean there are some older people when I was in Italy and they just said on the plane and EasyJet a lot of people who are retired and who wanted to go away for a late summer break as you say and then come home and are able to self isolate for 14 days, but most people aren't and and it just seems ridiculous that who stuck to this sort of fourteen day Rule and we were allowed to more countries to go onto that so-called Red List almost that we've been a spectator to events rather than actually shaping events. And and that's what I find so dispiriting. Yeah, I agree with what's it like flying at the moment because we haven't gone for ages. Well, it was absurd really and and it was farcical in that they had very few security desks, whatever you call them open. So we're all sort of funneled into into one to have your hand luggage checked Etc. And so while lining up for that people would literally they were just right by next to each other and there was no question. Enough social distancing at all and it had to be like that because we were crammed into a very small space. It was either that or going back out through the departure gate. So that was ridiculous wage. Then when you line up for their plane you there then you'll meant to sort of maintain a bit of distance to you. Haven't been doing that. And then once you course get on the plane, then you're absolutely right next to each other again so long it just simply inconsistencies. And then on the plane, obviously you wear your masks and one thing one positive. I think we've got to try to think of the positive that one positive is that when you at the Met when you land, you know, how normally everybody jumps up and grabs their stuff and then you're sort of standing there waiting before you can disembark..
"easyjet" Discussed on The Tech Humanist Show
"There's superspy they say, we plant trees the size off, I don't know Kazakhstan and good luck with that. Just made me write a little note to remind myself to look into carbon offsetting the show. The nationals. Okay Great. Well then. Offsetting seems like it must be an enormous part of the discussion in many parts of the industry. So corporate partnerships and foundations they must be investing in carbon offsetting and other projects that feels like it's needed. That's a an easy piece in some ways but. I would imagine there may also be areas of concern they're. Offsetting is a good thing. It's good to know that you know there are ways to. Undo or like reduce yes. Compensate for. Carbon. Yeah. generate. But the first question to ask should not be can offset it or how can offset it, but it should be like is what I'm doing even necessary. So I mean, let's say my tapered passionate is to fly to Barcelona other weekend just for Crown for party. So instead of offsetting it maybe I should stop doing. The same for companies I said, you know you know the Tech Company saying we're going to be carbon negative but then make most money from totally sustainable industries by selling their services to unsustainable industries. That's kind of yeah. Sort, it's controversial. You know they always joke about the amount of trees that have been to to be planted. I'm waiting. I'm waiting for today when I look out my window, the middle of the city and they start planting trees. I think like the whole planet must be covered with trees and the thing is takes decades onto the tree you plant really turns into carbon sink. So all that planting trees. And then also saying like, Oh, you're going to bring solar cookers to people in Africa it's also latently colonialist attitude. So you know we we make plus view to cook to clean way, but we dictate it to you. Yeah. So. Do you think the tree planting discourse is really hand though it an easy way to convey to or do you think it's a promise that's just never going to be delivered on. It sounds Nice but there's also I. Think there's some Douglas County, sometimes Kind of twice. It's it's easy to get the credit for a for planting a tree, but it's hard to verify the reduction you chief because it takes a long time right and and so they're all these issues. So I think it's interesting easy to, for example, says, Oh, we're going to offset a our emissions and then you see they can't relate I think four dollar per tonne of carbon that they emit compensate. Okay but my cloth. calculates. Fifteen dollar per tom that they emit. So you can imagine the difference that you can make with four dollars per tom or fifteen dollars per tonne you that's an enormous difference. Easyjet is generating more than a few tons..

about opening up is full of crap and we are not Cassandra's here we are Mr logic and realist so it's important to recognize that all right market leaders were always looking for market leaders and you know how we find them they move they move they show up on the screen big volume usually a rhyme or reason and how you know they have the potential to be a market leader well if the market's down five hundred and twenty four as I speak boy Amazon's up ninety today Netflix is up twenty one well if that's not a sore thumb I don't know what is and that doesn't mean Amazon is going to be a market leader by the close today Amazon configured down Netflix confirmed who knows all we know is they show a big on our screen today and there's a rhyme or reason Netflix by the way is on the verge of breaking out of I don't know almost a eighteen month range the old highway stuff for twenty three in two thousand eighteen it's only three ninety two but I can tell you it was three ninety three in February of this year it was three eighty six what's actually calling the teams on the move out today and of course the question why and of course Netflix you know what's going on people sit home watching a hell lot next I'm but I'm watching peaky blinders I never heard of until three weeks ago my kids told me about it I never heard of half the shows out there then you got Amazon Amazon just announced not only on about a hundred thousand people they just carpeting in the seventy five thousand people what we said about the man's stocks go up because a big big demand for business Amazon's telling you they need a hundred and seventy five thousand new people what does that tell you this big demand for business so we just let you know both these stocks which is big on my screen today and I don't know from a bio we're not because she got a market that this problematic also I know we're way off the lows but we deal with today but all we know is Amazon's up eighty nine Netflix is up

worth the rest top five others think there are too many red flags health wise to a tug of I. lo went on Instagram live as well to dispute the naysayers about quarterback being prone to injuries five straight talk brought you back straight talk wireless Mel Kiper junior on his work out and his PR heading in to this coming draft teams are looking to to a probably wary they're comfortable or not cumple prior to this you were comfortable you'll love it it's encouraging it's great if you're not comfortable does this really change your opinion probably not so this had to be all be reconciled prior to this because this long term durability with who are not just coming back from there yeah it's good to find whether you are not going to take him to make that statement at five or six of this is our franchise quarterback moving forward or so I gonna trade up give up multiple picks to get him that'll have to be I say reconciled before there's even took place what you don't want their camp to do and I think that's the biggest over solid and it seemed like it was a little bit of that going on well with the so called pro day what have you even of the other going out weeks ago so I think that's the thing everybody knows with things that were there that's gonna change anybody's mind the decision's already been made onto a prior to that you know which your medical people feel about to a you know how they feel what they feel the projections going to be moving for the NFL in terms of durability their best guess on that and that's anybody's guess that's that leap of faith you have to take also the issue really isn't whether he's healthy enough to pro football at the present time we saw that that's not the issue it's long term durability is that he's gonna be fragile Todd McShay's talked at great length over the last three months that quarterbacks were injured coming in it affects them moving forward in the NFL ESPN draft expert Jim Nagy on if this is a player that is worth the risk going to be a roll of the dice you can you can try to argue it either way within the video that come up now you know the injury history of what it is that the bad injury if they have I'm talking about yeah I know we've got some other stuff too but they have been through the high recurrent they're still you know there is a roll of the dice and I keep using the Breitbart example you know he was bailed out of physical coming out of phone met by the Packers doing Ron wolf one of the trade forum on the medical people there tried to block it and now run overruled them and brought it back in the you know the all time Iron Man in the league so you you know it's a roll of the dice no doubt but you know there if you hit onto a conveyor healthy you've got you've got a really really good player yeah so there seems to be consensus that the draft begins at three with the lions is Joe burrow appears ticketed for the bangles with the Redskins can't pass on Ohio state's chase young or could day booger McFarland on get up on what to do and to do a verse young arms there while we're having this conversation based on Colin Murray Kliff Kingsbury what they did with Arizona having Josh Rosen and relationship to Kingsbury hat with Colin Murray and he decided to just move on but here's the difference this year Ron Rivera's coming to Washington in Daniel Snyder is in charge he's the guy that said you know what I want to win Haskins so he's there and when you have an opportunity a number two to get the best player in the draft the gal probably with the highest floor in the highest ceiling that means if you draft says young at the very minimum you're going to get a player it could be a three down player and at the very average he's going to be a starter for you for eight to ten years his sailing right he's a hall of fame type player he can be a dominant defense V. and so you know to me this is a no brainer I understand the fascination that we all have with quarterbacks but at some point take the best player don't overthink it don't worry about the analytics put in defense of man spotted now your defensive line in Washington can be very formidable it may not be was San Francisco was last year but they can be very very good in Washington may not be that far off actually if you look at all the different players they've drafted and reputations they have Lewis what do you thank yeah I think the argument itself is trying to make is that look the the contribution that a quarterback impacted a quarterback can have on the franchise's fortunes far exceeds what he believes the impact could be from a defensive end in this case they think that to work would far surpass what Dwayne Haskins could do for that franchise but that doesn't take into account you know the weights and parchment last year so that's number one number two when you're talking about moving down from that spot in trading back what he's saying is the expected value added up to players would far exceed what the one player chase young could give you an incentive stations offer will point to that referred to that as surplus value right it's performance value relative to because they think the performance value of that you can get from two players when you move down the first round is much better than what you get from just one player takes on and some people believe that coverage is more important in pass rush so there's a whole bunch of cross currents running to this article but the fact of the matter remains this coach is going to look at a guy like she's young and say look if we can have a bunch of just absolute game records up front all of the San Francisco forty Niners and they have to run pain Jonathan Allen there right now along with Montez sweat and you can you check in you are combining with chase young we have the makings of the type of team that can really really affect the passer and do some good things so I understand what sets trying to do I don't think that what Britain's gonna do what I think he's only going to be the ticket number two I'm gonna move on from that but it does have some great some great argument and that is straight talk wireless everything for less only at Walmart two songs shine in the two K. tournament now and we get you set for some good old fashioned horse more on orthodox NBA with SportsCenter all my rolls back this is ESPN radio this time the New England has come to a close what it all your existence just tell us.

Sustainable Travel: The Hard Truth with Lucy Siegle
"Twenty nineteen year in which the travel industry found itself in the spotlight over its role in contributing to climate change tourists now more aware than ever before the environmental cost of air travel. Tourism contributes around five percent of greenhouse gases according to the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership at travel alone contributes to two point five percent of global emissions and these predictions suggest that these stats likely to triple by twenty fifty. If important changes are not maids however the tourism industry is responding in many diverse ways. For example the Guardian Travel Section now primarily focuses on destinations. That can be reached without the use of planes. Easyjet will carbon offset all flights by the end of twenty twenty initiatives such as green tourism? Have seen a leap in membership and provide hoteliers with a green check meter to promote more responsible tourism practices and global travel as a certainly more environmentally aware. Now environmental issues. I have to admit their uncomfortable truths for us in the travel industry so today we're taking the bull by the horns as it were and we're asking. Chiyo hey to tell us just how bad it is and also what we can do about it so environment environmental impact on travel. I think it's very good but the travel industry is trying to tackle this head on but I think we've also got some uncomfortable truths to face and in facing those uncomfortable truths. Hopefully we can make some headway into doing some stuff about it. But how in your opinion how? How bad is the travel industry for the world? How bad is the travel industry? Well if you look at some who just start with the elephant in the room so we look aviation you can say that aviation has a small part of the climate change pie in the comes in four percent. Something like that four percent. You might say well you know. In fact I've heard it said well PSA quivalent to say the fashion industry or something like that but we're in a very serious situation. Everyone's mentioned this to you. We all have to decarbonised really rapidly. So it doesn't matter. What your slice of the Pie is he needs to be getting it to zero. Unfortunately and aviation is one of the ones that's increasing and increasing exponentially so we could be seeing like a quarter of the world's carbon budget used by aviation in the very near future and that's not acceptable. Because you look at the amount of people that fly so I think in the UK. It's something like fifteen percent of the population tastes seventy five percent of the flights. Something like that. Probably most of them by me mainly you. Yes exactly so. It's not fair. Is it that all of that. Carbon budget should be used in that way so that that is the really really big existential and the media issue for the travel and tourism industry is that it's predicated on flights which have become cheaper and all the rest of it and then you get into a very interesting territory about offsetting and where we are now. How much needs to help and is by so? You really can't get very far. Ironically when we're talking about travel without coming across a very difficult brick wall I know this is the lady bird version of environmental issues but reminded y need to decarbonised. Oh so yeah so we are in. The era of climate crisis is not the only crisis that's affecting the bias fairs. We call the planet We also in the age of extinction. loss say rapid extinction loss of species. And we've got lots of different pressures. So the oceans absorbed ninety percent of of heat and a report came out a couple of weeks ago so that was in January February and it was irreputable evidence that the planet is is is warming because you can test the atmosphere will time. There's lots of different factors which might account for the heating when it comes to the oceans that is a controlled experiment ladies and gentlemen and we had the hottest oceans on record since records began and it is equivalent to exploding thousands of Hiroshima bombs in the ocean. That's the amount of energy and he is now in the ocean and this affects all sorts of things so for people in the UK who only really like one sort of fish which is called it means that if the oceans warm around the UK the COD will swim off to colder climes. And they all go to the Baltic states and we can't get any cards so it has a knock-on effects like that but it is proof incontrovertible evidence that the world is warming and a warming world brings with it a lot of problems including higher incidences of diseases oceans rising icecaps melting fires that burn hotter and are more widespread as we've seen in Australia etc etc etc so Greta Thambo says this so I'm GonNa say it but but if you were saying it I by the way she seems to have a wide for you have a great plot has exploded but you you were saying say funny because it's almost anniversary of me-meeting Greta Thornburg in Davos upper mountain and I said to my friend. This is absolutely legendary this point while. I don't think she's going to catch them did you. My friend resigned. I don't know I think she might anyway like two days later. Thirty two thousand kids marched in Belgium for Friday's for the future though is already regretting. Why statement and she just seems so as literally. Mitch Leigh Small. Once more young men conscious actually small. She's actually small and she's very softly spoken very unassuming and yeah. I mean what a presence will an accident force and I really care myself. I squandered that did you. Did you feel something around are no? That sounds ridiculous but people that I've got that power to to have an impact on so many people often do when they walk into the room. Yeah think so. I think I was just being very defensive about what this kid you know. I've been doing this for. Aj's join the queue. Hello but I also now you'll court so you were just about to court for a minute. Yes she's incredibly powerful force and she. I remember her face and her being rather than another thing. That's quite disarming if you spend time around High Profile people with this charisma that quite jazz Hans. She's not just handsome toll so I think I just took a while to understand what she was bringing But she's very very good and what I was going to save it. She says a lot of people. Ask Me and when is the climate crisis going to be over? It's not a moment. It is an era. This is the reality so once you accept that of the reality the climate era. What are you going to do about it? But we can't we can't. We're not GONNA stop traveling. People are not going to stop traveling for fun for work. The world is a very a much smaller place. You might say well people might have to but look what's happened this week. The Corona virus so. This plane's not taking off from China China is basically closed. Which is so. They'll be kind of carbon win for that in a way because they'll be some fear emissions. We're in a numbers game now. So you go to you. Go to look at these things but you know there's an example very very recently where we might say. We're not going to travel. But actually you're not gonNA travel so there's a number scenarios that might happen where you went to travel so what's difficult. The moment is that it's just all on us making the decision not to travel and you may have children who are very inspired by Greta. You might be parents. Have I inspired by Greta? Making a decision to take a train journey instead of Dumping on the plane and these are really interesting. Personal kind of points of maneuver and negotiation at the moment within families and stuff like that and it will be very interesting to see how the travel industry which. I'm sure I shouldn't talk about as if it's a big homogenized thing 'cause I know it's very nuanced different parts of it but they've got to kind of surf this weird moment with us really and we have got to come up with more inventive products. We've got to come up with more different ways of doing things we've got to look at some tough

Fiat Chrysler finds new merger partner in Carlos Tavares
"French carmaker. PSA which owns Pirjo and Fiat Chrysler. Automobiles it's Italian American rival have agreed to pursue a merger that would create the world's fourth largest carmaker and reshape the ultimate of sector. I'm here with a motor industry correspondent Peter Campbell. And we're joined down the line by David Kayhan in Paris to discuss the merger. Hi Guys Peter Tell us first why these super super mergers have been considered at the moment. What's the rationale behind them earn? What's the most notable recent mergers in the sector so call makers of facing stresses from a lot of a different direction at the moment? They're facing falling sales in the facing the need to invest in some quite expensive new technologies electric cars. They need to sell to the C O talks across Europe and China as well as driverless vehicles and other such technologies that looking at now. What are these things cost money? And it makes very little sense for all of the world's carmakers call makers independently to spend the billions and billions that they need to develop this technology. It's much more sensible for them to tie up. A great proponent of this theory was Sergio Marconi the late former chief executive of fit cruiser who oversaw the merger between Fiat and Chrysler itself. WHO said the comic is need to tie up in order to avoid duplication teaching the list massive spending that they have to make? It's just too much cash. They need to splash right. So what are the relative strengths of the Fiat group. Compared to pressure so both companies are incredibly complementary geographically Peugeot exists almost entirely in Europe asam stuff outside Europe. But it's very very strong strong in Europe. Fat Chrysler despite being called fat is in fact predominantly in North America organization. Almost all of its profits. Come from selling pick-up trucks and very large. SUV's in the North North American region. It owns the ram heavy truck brand it ends jeep globally Lens Africa and Maserati and so for these companies they complement each other geographically and and what PSA has shown with its takeover of Opal which owns Fox hole in the last few years is that this is a company that can manage scale in European mass mass manufacturing so it already owns a number of volume brands in Europe. It audience Persian and sit. Trinidad's open phones Vauxhall. You would add to that fat if this merger went ahead head. And they've already showed that they can make these efficiencies of scale work within a single region within Europe which would be an advantage but PSA really although it's had an incredible Rana that's very profitable. Its growth is sort of come to an end really needs to try and push into North America which has plans to do unto its own steam and it really needs a serious premium. AM nameplate a merger with fair crews which is very strong in North America and has offer may a massive rati and jeep brings that I say so David John Elkin. WHO's the one of Italy's Agnelli families? The Italian billionaire behind axle which controls Fiat Chrysler and also the brains behind the proposed merger but his his attempt to do a similar deal with Renault early. This year failed at this plenty of examples of failure here. What happened there? Why did I go wrong? Defensive Him you ask really. FCA In parallel talks with Reynaud and Persia for quite a while but particularly since the start of the year. What people have told us that the whole time? They're in these as talks. They actually wanted runner. That was number one target. But I didn't know that so Iran may the news was given to the profoundly particular and generally that they were going to go over a nice over a good the only problem from. Sei's point of view. Is that across the table from the Reynolds argest shareholder was the French state. You might know that Renos found itself in a particular situation with its Japanese partner Nissan. And what the French state said was at Notre for the merger to go ahead. They wanted the explicit it consent agreement approval of Japan. They walked away. It was like ten days. The whole thing collapsed. It was a drama France. Tickets blamed by some sides if you took the French state on background they say maybe the deal wasn't as good for Renos. It could have been directing normal shareholder but either way John alcon sure. The French date didn't like what it was doing walked away dramatically and that leads us to PSA so would perjures Kosta virus preach batter partner. Do you think it depends. I mean I would cautiously say yes. Tavarez is a big personality big. Co elkhound is buying in is a guy who's not. It's going to take a backseat in any way he's going to be a CEO in charge driving strategy and Alcon will be classic chairman. You'd imagine it's kind of return to demark relationship. He had before maybe it was something. We didn't think he was totally on board. With an part of the reason he went Reynaud but where the project is definitely at nicer fit for FCA. Is that the French state is far less hands on this company. It has a shareholding but in Reynaud you could say that the French state is more like a family company shareholders. Huge emotional ties. It's the largest shareholder as well in Persia. It's a much more traditional shareholder it doesn't lockinge stakes. It's the joints are shareholder shareholder with both the Persian family and China's Dongfang. So you can see why it might be a better partner. Yes so notice. That are lex pages. Describe cried Mr Tavarez's quadri-lingual what kind of big personality is he. What kind of figure does he cut in the car? Industry globally so taveras is renowned and as one of the most capable executives across the automotive industry. If you look at his track record is performance. He came into Persia when they will almost bankrupt. He oversaw sore huge turnaround at the company then bought Opel. This was a company that General Motors couldn't make money out of twenty years. They turned that around in very short order and yet at the same time he doesn't have the gigantic room. Filling ego of some of the other executives in the auto industry would be more akin to traveling head of state when they it went overseas. Savar as who is a cost cutter to the core when he comes to the UK to visit the Vauxhall plant at Luton flies into Luton on EasyJet buys is is sandwiches in the corner shop before getting in a taxi to go over to the plant in his better than eight. Uneasy gentleman with US possibly explanation. But it's also true that he really has a way a of identifying with the ground level workforce as well as the executives and saying guys. You are the team here is up to you to deliver this turnaround plan has to go ahead. And he's been quite good actually particularly in the Opel turnaround of avoiding plant closures. No everybody thought when he bought Opel there we're going to have to shut factories and he said we're going to do this plan without shutting factories and they brought he managed that and what we expect from the FCA deal if it goes ahead. Is that going to make a commitment not to close any of either. I accompanies plants as a result of the turnaround as a result of trying to make savings here and so two Varas is seen. At least at the highest levels of most capable automative executives that gives at the moment and by some people is ranked the best glibly anywhere interesting David. How's he viewed inside of corporate France? If you like with a problem we have a terrorist journalist. This is not enough that stuff to say about him. It's genuine issue now. He's considered in France and piracy to be one of the best. I mean one of the reasons. The French government are supporting. This is because Tabarez is there. He's seen as being a safe pair of hands he sees having done a really great trainer ended Persia and he's seen as someone that they can trust in putting together this merger that's right but he has this cultural index territory. The allows him to associate with work in different countries so when he bought Opel everyone was naturally worried Opel. They were about to get fired but he walks into the headquarters Opel in Germany. All the stuff of April assembled there and his opening lines to the Marin German now he doesn't speak German but he'd learned some opening lines in German and was greeted with a big round of applause but also with the sense in the room that this was a guy who was on their side. It makes a big difference right okay. Personalities a site. Let's let's talk about some of the numbers here. What are the terms of the proposed? David I mean where would the merge creeped based for start. Well that's a very good question when that we don't really know the answer to yet. The idea is multiple As it stands but just very quickly so it's a fifty fifty all stock merger and there's going to be a special dividends and payouts. Either side equalized equalized values but analysts are suggesting that this looks like PSA buying FCA and part of the reason you can say that is the construction of the board Komo correct. He has eleven people five each plus Tavarez so the governance is tilted towards Paris. We will be watching to see where the operation headquarters is really eighty based where Tavarez sits even if I think Peter you might jump in here as well. FCA They're used to bring multiple countries in a way that maybe we'll create tensions. Well this brings us very nicely into the cultures of both companies to. FCA was a company that was borne out of this merger between Fiat and Chrysler and as such as a headquarters in London but but a major office insurance and a major office in Auburn Hills. Chrysler is based and whereas many car companies are deeply rooted in the national culture. These guys genuinely feel we'll multinational and they genuinely feel more global and they've actually culturally made a merger work which historically the consciousness quite difficult to do right. We saw DaimlerChrysler the fall apart we saw Ford Not Really Gel with any of the premium brands. It owned Volvo Janke Arrest Martin etc and at the same time you've got. PSA which also is culturally in quite an international fit because it has a British Brandon Vauxhall at has a German Brandon Opel and again it's made an automotive merger work in recent history and so one of the biggest barriers to auto mergers is cultural and it always is and it's the factions between different rival governments wanting a place at the table and to the fact that you've got to companies that are sort little mood globally cultural and have recently made big complex multi-country images work does bode quite well for these. Two companies being able to culturally fit together. which is a huge hurdle and obviously not a financial one but a key one that really needs to be overcome for any automotive motor to work now to think that assuming this goes through? Do you think there will be cost-cutting. This time we've spoken about how Mr Tavarez avoided this in the past but do we think an ax will fall this time around. They've talked about Oh savings of three point seven billion euros which they go to try and realize eighty percent of those within the first couple of years of the deal going through now. They haven't broken out exactly where that comes from. They've said it's not going to be plant closures if you look at. PSA during open takeover they managed to save a lot of money by shortening labor hours thousand doing various things around the way they utilize space in the factory floor but a big chunk of savings in a big rationale for the deal in the whole is as we said at the start to avoid duplicating investment it costs so it'll be avoid. Investment cost into electrification and avoided investment costs not just intellectuals -cation autonomy but also inter individual platforms so you built a car on. They'll merge those together they'll get huge potential savings and of purchasing components together all kinds of classic industrial merger synergies. I mean David. Is that message sticking in France. I don't think this merger would have been given the green light or been greeted with such political approval as it has been so far if it hadn't been for guarantees. He's about jobs and I think that's true in Italy as well. I don't think they're going to be closing plants. I just don't think it's politically tenable as Peter says for. They're going to be. Finding the savings is in our D adoption. Those kind of things. So if you're a betting man do you think the magic. We'll go ahead and if it is who then are the biggest rivals to the merged group. Rule the move music safaris overwhelmingly positive. The fact the French government seemed to be behaving better than they did last time older. That's not a terribly high bar bodes well for the whole thing going through now. What we're expecting expecting is it? Within the next sort of two three four weeks we'll get a memorandum of understanding between the two companies that will set out potentially more details about synergies potentially more details about management structure and various other things. Maybe even headquarters details then. Obviously the whole thing has to go to show. Does it both companies who have to approve them is quite difficult to to see them derailing that and then obviously it has to go through various other regulatory huddles. They also have to deal with antitrust issues so this will be the largest carmaker in Europe. It could be bigger than Volkswagen that market share in some countries such as constantly will be very high so they may have issues with that but no one seriously thinks that's going to derail l. the deal so assuming everything goes smoothly you could see it close within say nine months potentially two year. There's always a bit of leeway with these things either side and then obviously they will be the fourth largest in the world behind reminisce. And if you're treating those companies is one that's the whole other but also Volkswagen Toyota and on readiness and those three make ten million cars a year. These guys will make eight and a half million calls year that puts them slightly ahead of General Motors. You make about eight but they will be easily within the global top five for well. This is going to keep busy for the next year or so. Thanks Peter an thanks David thank you wolf listening.

What happened crippled by its one point seven billion pounds of debt.

Airlines Planning Their Futures With The Possibility Of A Third Runway At Heathrow Airport
"Seven years until the first aircraft are due to be cleared for takeoff on Heathrow's plan third runway and such has been the history of the project this may be an optimistic estimate this does not stop airlines planning for it however not least Virgin Atlantic which has announced that it hopes to use an expanded Heathrow to service eighty eighty four new destinations thirty five of them long-haul including Sydney Lima Calgary Beijing and Buenos Ayres joined with more on this by LS Taylor Asia editor at the aviation analytics firm CERIUM LS seriously. How much mileage is there in an airline planning for what it's going to do with Heathrow's food runway well you could sort of say that Virgin Atlantic really getting out there ahead of the runway and trying to stake a claim for for a number of thoughts that would really been up quite a number of new routes for them and bring a lot of competition to the Heathrow market but you know it's a long way out and there's a lot of water that has to pass under the bridge a before the runway actually gets going and be to make sure that they actually get the slots that they wouldn't eight to operate all these flights. It's a pretty ambitious claim and bold putting it out there but I guess you have to start somewhere and then going hard so is this basically politicking by Virgin Atlantic. They're throwing down a market here very much so and really what they're attacking is the way that slots are allocated Ed. Hey throw the current logic sort of says that when the new runway opens and opens up a bunch of new slots for flights to come in and out is it they'll probably followed. Loyd the same way that they allocated and then that sees British Airways of course control a bit over half the slots there so be has been planning on taking a quite a lion's share of that so we've also saying that other airlines like Easyjet have shown some interest in to Heathrow if those slots became available so that have to pull up quite a coup to get all these additional also they would need to launch all these routes and then there's other things with the agreements between the United Kingdom and other Asian countries with actual slots from the other countries to fly there too so lot to sort out well you invoke the the name of Virgin Atlantic's Great Nemesis British Airways is is this staking of acclaimed by Virgin Atlantic something that should be seen within in the context of rivalry. I think that's a large part of it but the other big driver is that one of the big companies behind Virgin Atlantic apart from Richard Branson his Delta Airlines and since Delta bought a forty nine percent stake in the airline. They've really gone about who expand it and push it into different markets obviously tying up with Delta's network in the United States but Delta also has greg global ambitions and I think what we're seeing a bit here is Delta of pushing virgin to become part of that more global network that they're looking to build you should we therefore Frantisek county new or counterclaim by British Airways or or might they rise loftily above it. Is this one of those rivalries that matters rather all the more to the small participant on the larger one. I think in this one that British Airways again to probably fight back quite what quite strongly on that we've already seen some comments from the parent company. IHOP essentially saying that vision has a number of slots releasing out to other airlines. I want they using those I I think there's going to be very much a scramble on offer win. These thoughts do come available not only with the eye but with other foreign airlines as well who would like to increase capacity to throw so it'll be interesting to see what bonfire emerges at that time. What is the current thinking among airlines on. How likely the third runway actually happening is? I think a lot of airlines are quite hurtful but many airlines have also have been through this process any number of times. I think the third run wise been talked about for certainly as long as I've been in the industry that's been quite a while. Oh and with you politics being the why they are not that I'm any expert on that Boris Johnson of course famously put forward the Boris Laurus oil and alternative to to Heathrow while back so I suspect it might be hard to to get through but the reality is at the same time that Heathrow does need the additional runway needs the capacity and not doing so really hurt the economy of London mean all the things that could still happen to stop it from happening joining not too sure on the specifics at this point in time it it does look like it. It will go ahead but having said that we've been through that a few times before where it's been given the clearest indication that yes everything is going through and then something upsets the plan and it gets pushed further down the road. It's a I wouldn't necessarily rule out that happening again but really it is kind of you could actually passed the crunch point now. we act which this needs to be built. You made a brief allusion their to the current state of British politics and the B word does affect infect almost everything the thing is there any doubt in aviation circles about whether or not the fact of Brexit might have an impact on Heathrow as an important air how or do people just take the for granted as part of the architecture travel it has been something that has caused a bit of angst previously for a lot of airlines and I'm trying to work out how things will work pice brexit world. It seems that that angst is largely been assuaged that most airlines have their structures sit up to to work with you. Have that will work I think it's inevitable that even though brexit could cause some economic disruption that London will still be a city that lots of people will visit. It's going to be a place where people connect between North America through the rest of Europe and Africa and other continents so inevitably Heathrow itself itself. I think still has a a lodge harold apply now. Let's tell thank you for joining us.
Our Super AvGeek Week
"And welcome to episode sixty six of ask talk. I am passionate here as always with Jason Rabinowitz and we've got a good one this week. This is a really good show. I mean it might possibly be one of the most exciting at least for US episodes of the podcast we've ever done now. We obviously haven't recorded yet so we can't quite vouch that. It's going to be good as we think it's going to be but I think it's going to be as good as we think it's going to be. Portions of this episode have been prerecorded and reformatted to fit your ears exactly so here's the format of the episode. We did some things in the past couple of weeks. We're going to definitely talk about those. We've got some special guests coming up by won't ruin it quite yet. Ian Left his house I did. I left my house twice in one week. I didn't even I didn't only leave my house twice choice in one week. I went to a different state twice in one week. You went to three state. Why I left the state but yeah yeah we'll get to that a little bit later on the show because we've got some some real special stuff coming up but in the meantime news waits for no podcast her and that's right so who it has also been an incredibly busy week on that front and I think we should just dive right in with what happened in in Miami with the American Airlines mechanic in that he was arrested for sabotage yeah yeah you shouldn't do that so so if you're you're not aware if you're not from the United States or or hard to imagine you don't keep a close eye in the industry if you are listening to this podcast but American and its its mechanics union aircraft mechanic union have been going at it quite hard for the past few months over contract renegotiations uh-huh and it has not been subtle the leader of Americans mechanics union has not so subtly called for blood and and unfortunately when most people is see this kind of rhetoric. Can they negotiate a tactic. They brush it off. There's always that few percent of if people who take it to heart and do really really really really stupid things and unfortunately this stupid thing happened to be a the American Airlines mechanic at Miami International decided. I really don't like the way the negotiations are going. They've hurt me economically in some way. I'm going into sabotage plane to get overtime to fix the plane I sabotage in not only did he do that but he went about doing it in a very stupid easy to catch way and and there is a a very large investigation into how this happened why it happened why he would do it and I hope he sees many many years of prison time yeah. It's so what happened was is he sprayed or I don't know the exact method of the foam delivery but foam ended up covering a piece of the navigation system that corrupted the ability of the system to function properly. The pilots began their taxi Acsi out on the tax that they never even made it to the runway. This was a pilot or taxing for departure and something's very wrong with the navigation system so they turned around and went back to the gate other mechanics opened up the plane and said bulled that's not supposed to be there and things kind of went from there as as far as the investigation beginning thankfully the other mechanics didn't keep to themselves and keep it in the family they contacted the authorities and corporate security in Mia Miami police and they tracked down very easily who did this. I read the FBI complaint and the employees who sabotage aircraft had a very pronounced the limp and they were able to find video of going to the aircraft that he wasn't ever supposed to touch he typically never left the hanger but in this instance he actually went out to the gate and tampered with the aircraft left and they were able to trace it all back to him and he just outright admitted it all which is I guess good mix prosecution easier but I guess the saving grace of this is that the aircraft work the way it was supposed to it detected an issue at as in described that he disconnected a cable or some sort of air sensor and physically sabotaged it putting Styrofoam in gluing it in the unbelievable that he would leave so much physical evidence behind but the aircraft sense that there was something wrong long and it returned to Gates but there have definitely been cases in the past were not having the proper airspeed data has indeed caused fatal accidents. It's several incidents with Boeing other manufacturer aircrafts and thankfully the aircraft in this instance did what it was supposed to do. Identified the issue and they went back to the gate right but his intention was not to harm the aircraft of the passengers but very easily could have whether his intention was to or not to do so right exactly. It doesn't matter what his intentions were matters. What could have happened and I asked around you know is this was a serious surfing obviously but was this something that that could have easily led to an accident and the answer. I got was not conclusive mostly because we don't know exactly clearly kind of what he did. It wasn't them thankfully. I guess Kinda broadcast hide but like you said I mean there's always the possibility buddy when we're talking about aircrafts that any issue could compound itself especially once the aircraft's in the air and thankfully the American Airlines mechanic seed has thrown own this employee under the bus and completely condoned his behavior that could have gone the other way. The union could have defended him or who knows what but it was good to see them very quickly. Put out a release saying this guy sucks. He doesn't speak for us. We obviously never condone tempering with an aircraft. I don't think that's actually with with the release said that would be some refreshing honesty not a direct credit anyone but at the same time I feel like his actions were directly influenced by the rhetoric coming from the Union. There's that one video from a couple of months ago where the head of union literally calls for blood and declares war on their own airline so if that wasn't unsettling enough this this really shines a bad light on the union unfortunately on American as well because this just can't happen. It should never happen. It is terrible for passengers used to see this on the news and think oh their mechanics on rogue and they're back to be sabotaging your craft. It's just a one off case but man. That's a battle yeah it shall we switched is to a much happier story involving what involving a pilot who just wanted to go on vacation see there are bad employees like be be mechanic down at. Miami and there aren't good employees and this may be easyjet pilot for Manchester Yeah. This may be a bit of a self serving. Good deed read hot air. No no absolutely not it was self serving but it was also kind of amazing and apparently this has happened before but this is quite amazing in that. I'm an easy jet pilot was was ready to depart Manchester. I'd go down to vacation. I think in Spain was it yeah I'll I'll contact yeah yeah him and his family and unfortunately unfortunately one of the two pilots for his flight that he was a passenger on did not show up whether they were operational issues or crew scheduling this was the Monday following the Sunday Sunday French air traffic control issues. I think that French had radar issues and so a lot of easyjet flights got cancelled and and the ones that did run ended up you you know how the Easyjet operates a lot of flights where they go out in back or they go one two three and then they're supposed to end up at three but they were only able to get to two and so they their operations were a little out of sync the following morning yes so this pilot rather than leading the fight be cancelled and vacations ruined. He said screw it. I'll fly the plane. I got pilot's license. I got my ID. What's fire this thing up in get down to Spain yeah. That's got to be one of those things where you can't tell. It's a joke at first. If you're a passenger there was a woman who recorded video of him making the announcement about what was happening and I guess is is this guy serious. Is this actually happening and for the plane high Bill. I don't have a uniform but I'll be flying your plane today basically what he said Yeah. I mean let people know the pilot. Wasn't you know the the captain was able to make the flight and then all of a sudden. He's he's in a perfect position to fly down there so they went. I think one of the articles I saw the airport ops had called the headquarters and said hey we won't operate this flight with with the off duty pilots and I said Okay we'll call you back in about thirty seconds later. They called back and say go get the flight out. Just go just go who cares what he's wearing. Yeah it's a lot of e U two six four compensation that they will not have to pay the bills willing to operate a flight on his precious vacation die that thought about that you competition will never even occurred to me but yeah I guess I guess that that was some quick math that they did. Whatever we have to pay you it's far less than we would have spent the passengers singers so the reincarnation of the fourth or fifth version of the wild brand this week. Maybe we sort of yeah really a this is ludicrous. Did you watch the press conference. I couldn't get through the whole thing it was it was to Joseph Heller esque. I think it was also very trumpian and a lot of ways where she look. Let's back up a few steps. Assure bio meets yeah so there's a is an investment for a woman. I don't really know if she is an investment firm what but but she is very much of the opinion that wow air is a brand worth salvaging and salvaging now while come back now so they sank like eighty six million dollars which is half of the amount due or something along those lines but they think a lot of money into buying the how the remnants of wow air air and apparently they want to relaunch service between Iceland and Washington Dulles next month this coming October with the two unidentified aircraft. I guess they have them in mind. Along with dedicated cargo freighters they have two that are ready to go to to bring they're beautiful fish and delicious water out of Iceland as she kept saying what they're beautiful flight attendants majestic skies and the whole thing is I don't know anyone that thinks wow Ariza brand word saving came and went so quickly in spectacular fashion stranded a lot of people and brought Icelandair to the brink of financial ruin by its back. I guess maybe kind of I think this is going to fall into the category of Kabila. Leave it. When I see it type thing the yeah the whole idea bringing back wow I get it was a a very easy easy brand to understand. I mean wow the planes are per bowl. You've got you fly to Iceland and you fly back and forth. I get that that proposition is very easy. This seems to be taking that ease of recognisability and turning it into this weird hybrid hybrid like the cargo thing why not just start cargo flights. I don't understand how that's a wild thing I don't know and the whole thing of of wow is supposed to be an ultra low cost carrier. That's what they were. That's what SORTA worked for them but at the same time she's talking about. We want to have a a lounge Catholic for all our passengers. We don't charge for water and we want to have Michelin starred Chefs Lady. That's not how ultra low cost carriers work. You have to pay for all those things so you can make money. Unfortunately our didn't make enough money. Even being ultra low cost a bottom barrel pay for everything. I don't know if she's ever operated braided airline in the past. I don't believe so but an airline cannot on the one hand the ultra low cost and at the same time have lounges for everyone and give you free Ramillo's on a five hour transatlantic redeye from Washington to Iceland it just none of that bath checks out but it sounds like a recipe for a very very nice ace airline that will operate for one week yes so. I don't like to throw them. Throw them away so quickly but do not book a flight on this airline. Let's start offering offering it because I don't understand how they could turn around to start offering flights this October so damn quickly. It doesn't make sense. I don't do that unless it's so cheap you can just throw the forty bucks fairway not care. I mean if I'm going to get a trip to Iceland free water. 'cause I mean okay but the water is delicious and Michelle Starr meal and do wait a minute. Wait a minute. I just figured it out. The whole cargo think they're gonNa make you carry the cargo in your hands into the seat. Aren't that's a nice value add proposition. That's you're going to have to hold the fish yeah. That's going to be so cheap so we can't eat the fish we have. Have you just have to hold fit. You are the cargo carrier. Oh well yeah the whole thing. Is it reeks of like eastern nine or something like that just but I don't really know. We got to see this week but that lead story for later in the episode yeah so yeah while coming back second apparently very quickly. I don't buy it. I don't see the need for its but shore speaking of airlines which are a little confusing confusing and usually on our radar we continue to question whether Norwegian will exist in the medium term future yeah or even short turn this short term future yeah. They are having worse financial issues than than usual usual. They've really a bunch of external factors of really hit Norwegian hard for when they started long operations. Boeing was late delivering the seven eight seven which was unfortunate fortunate so they started operations with their craft from anyone who had them and then the Trent went thousands broke and so they had to wet leased aircraft from anyone that could have than the seven three. Max grounded so they had to wet leased aircraft from anyone who they could find sensing a pattern here. I'm getting the pattern here and so speaking of wet lease just a few of the current wet lease operations operating on behalf of Norwegian a euro-atlantic seven six seven the high flight eight hundred eighty a high flame three forty develop a

"Hundred and thirty four dollars Barscelona round trip, two hundred and thirty nine dollars. That's just it's who knows what those prices are based on some weird algorithms of some kind supplied demand. Who knows it. It's absolutely crazy that you can get better deals into Europe. Then you can't fly almost anywhere within the USA on around trip deal even with advanced planning. And you had talked about one to go to the Malta. I believe, yes. Direct flight, the Malta's difficult, but European local airfares on Ryanair EasyJet, and Flybe are much lower priced than what you usually find the US, so you could look to a flight say to Madrid, which has a major airport, or possibly even Barcelona and then shop around to see if you've what the price would be to fly from Barcelona or Madrid to Malta and you might be able to get that round trip for a hundred and fifty dollars. So all of a sudden that makes that affordable. Hey. Are those Ryanair in those okay? Do you have to stand up, what's the conditions like in those inter-european super cheap airline Ryan air? It's not very different from flying on the low cost airlines here in the US on the LBJ and on the frontiers. And on the, the other one's spirit. This lost my spirit. You know, I'm not a big fan of spared, and, and I'm not a big fan of any of those. But if you're traveling, it economy, you know, with the same carry on loads on, and you flying on a major carrier like American United or whoever it happens to be. It's not going to be that much different than it would be. If you went on one of these low cost carriers because they're doing it to compete with them. And if you're just going to be flying, you know, just Madrid Malta then okay do it because I have a lot of friends at fly on, on those on those airlines all the time, and it's, it's kind of. Different in Europe. Because you're protected by a lot of European policies that you don't have the US. Yeah. So, okay. You know it's, it's not bad. I have a four day weekend on. I think we all do on fourth of July. It's, it's not like I'm taking it off. It's mandatory. And I'm happy to have it be mandatory. This four days and four days is too much to sit around the house. So if you see anything. Leaving. Who I don't know. Thursday morning camera back Sunday, something like that. Let me know. So back to this Pakistani flight PK something or other. And a woman said she thought the exit was a men's restroom. How is that possible? Really, if you unless you're insane, some how could anyone ever really think it was a restroom. You know there was a time when when you were flying. It was not a sky greyhound. You know, not everybody flew and I suspect, maybe this was the first time the one was on the flight..
"easyjet" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Let's give you a flavor of the risk appetite that we're seeing in the markets today. The stock six hundred opening higher by six tenths of a percents or on the second day of gains for European equities. We did by the end of last week see the best quarter for Germany's indices in four years looking across at some of these regional benchmarks to see how we're shaping up. You looking at the Footsie-100 up six tenths of a percent. The CAC forty higher by nine tenths of a percent were waiting for the Dax to get going as well and get an opening price on that. But really we're seeing green across the screen and in terms of US equities as well. Best quarter in the first quarter for US equities in a decade and futures on the front foot S and P five hundred Emmys up six tenths of a percent. Nasdaq futures higher by almost one percent. Dow futures higher by. Six tenths of a percent. In Asia was also seen some strong gains across indices were waiting to see if the Hang Seng will close in a bull market if it closes at or above twenty nine thousand five hundred and two spot sixty four that would make it official right now, we trade at twenty nine thousand five hundred thirty six spot fifty. So quite a way above that level. That would make a bull market close. Looking at fixed income, of course last week. We saw the ten year treasury yield dropped to a December twenty seventeen low. We saw a drop as low as two thousand four hundred on a to forty four hundred right now up three and a half basis points and yields are moving higher in Europe as well. The tenure bundled up three basis points, but we are still in negative territory. The tenure yield up three basis points at one point zero three percent. In terms of Dalian city group is recommending some trades to hedge volatility in dollar yen. We're on a one eleven hundred dollar yen retreating again part of this risk on pitcher Dalian up two tenths of a percent. One eleven spot zero six we've been keeping an eye on the Turkish liras. Well, it did initially. We. In today's session. Posting some of the worst losses against the dollar in emerging markets. We get those results through from the municipal elections. And right now, we are still seeing some weakness in the lira did rebound slightly earlier were weaker for day five sixty one sixty finally just a very quick check on oil. It was a strong first quarter for commodities as well. It was for commodities for credit for equities also for bonds WTI up five tenths of a percent. Brent crude up eight tenths of a percent WTI trades sixty spot forty seven Brent at sixty eight spot twelve let's get into some of the stocks that we're watching this morning. Bloomberg's Joe eastern is with us in our London studio. So Joe let's start with easyjet's. Yes. It's a warning from this morning. They are saying macro uncertainty and unanswered questions on Brexit hurting demand for the UK airline. We already know that fares are being squeezed in the industry due to over capacity EasyJet today, noting that D'amoto and also high costs related to fuel and also affects so. Quite an active statement from EasyJet, and it looks like this is now becoming a more political issue because one of the big UK companies, noting Brexit uncertainty in this crucial Brexit time that stock has not opened yet. But I think it could fool around ten percent this morning, and it's already down thirty percent over the last year. So looks like that bad run is going to continue for EasyJet. Yeah. We'll keep an eye on that opening price. And meanwhile, we're seeing some news in the logistics space in terms of a deal. Yes. So we got a logistics merger say Denmark's DSP's buying panel now of Switzerland. So this is paying four point six billion dollars. It's in the Swiss franc currencies around one hundred ninety six six francs a share which would be about twenty five percent premium. I make it to the recent closing price. But it's also a forty three percent premium to the price before these talks began. So it seems like quite a good premium for those panel peanut shareholders in Switzerland DSP recently fell to by another competitor in Switzerland. Which was that was a bit smaller. But they seem to have got this bigger target now, and they really want that to boost this e and logistics unit there already quite strong on the road front Bonaly that big bigger freighter ration- in air and sea again not seeing price yet. Because it looks like it's going to be a significant move. But my maths I make up around twenty to twenty five percent this morning for the Swiss firm, we love it. When you bring your maths into stocks to watch. Joe, let's talk about call. Makers because if I'm looking at industry groups actually all of them in the green today, but carmakers the second best performing industry group on the stock. Six hundred today. What's the new slow in that space this morning? Yes. We've got to Bloomberg exclusive saying that feared and Persia looking to explore building cars together in Europe. So that could be a huge cost saving excise both companies and Persia they want to integrate their OPEL and Vauxhall units that they brought from the US is General Motors recently, and it's also a precursor few huge investment in electric vehicles. As you mentioned those stocks doing round seeing Persia up around three percent and feared in Italy up around one point nine percent, Joe I've been desperately refreshing, the EasyJet price, and we do have a price. Now, we are down seven percent on EasyJet here at the open not only that. But if you actually look at the biggest movers on the stock six hundred this morning as well. Well, it is easy jet down seven percent but closely following behind is Ryanair down four. Point eight percent. And also actually also down more than two percent. Here's we're seeing some quite big moves in the airline space on that cautious outlook from EasyJet. Thanks so much for joining us this morning. Bloomberg's Joe eastern with us in our London studio with these stocks to watch. Now, I was talking about the risk on. We're seeing across markets today. Well, here seems to be the reason we start with data out of China sentiment at Asia's factory stabilized in March as China's economy rebounded. Bloomberg's Bryan Curtis reports. From Hong Kong China's official PM I jumped to fifty point five from forty nine point to the prior month. That was the biggest increase since two thousand twelve the separate Taishan index reflecting private industry rose to fifty point eight now other factory readings in Japan and South Korea rose as well, but they remained below fifty signaling contraction and other cautionary notes as well. Japan's Tungkang tumbled the most in six years and South Korea's exports fell for a fourth consecutive month. Even so stocks soar. Throughout the region Kong. I'm Bryan Curtis. Bloomberg daybreak Europe. Interesting because we do have some good commentary from Bloomberg economics actually in terms of the stablization in China data. They don't necessarily think that that means easing is over there actually seeing a People's Bank of China cut to the Tripler as early as the first half of April. That's the analysis from Bloomberg economics. Now, let's turn to China's bond markets. Today's the first day that government and policy banknotes are included in the Bloomberg Barclays global aggregate index. Bloomberg's Tiancheng calls the China bond inclusion and important seal of approval that could have an impact on the country's currency. So CitiGroup says that China will say about one hundred billion to thirteen billion dollars of influence in this year. And that's going to offset the capital outflows from China, and that's going to support the longer term. And it's important for us to note that Bloomberg LP the parent of Bloomberg radio owns the Bloomberg Barclays Brown. Handed bond index as I mentioned Bloomberg economics in terms of their commentary on the PM is out of China and the prospect for further easing Bloomberg economics, actually in China really killing it today because they've also written a piece about this bond market inclusion saying that China's bond market is more than two big to ignore. They point out. It's less correlated with other major markets that potentially offers diversification potential. We keep talking about that hunt for yield. They also say that Chinese bonds have higher risk adjusted returns. And by the way, it's worth bearing in mind as well. And this is noted by Bloomberg economics that foreign ownership of Chinese bonds is only three percent compare that to the US which is around thirty percent. Now, let's turn to Europe a slew of economic data out this morning, including manufacturing readings from the UK, France, Germany, as well as euro area, unemployment and CPI inflation David Powell from the Bloomberg economics team has the preview.

Landed bond index as I mentioned Bloomberg economics in terms of their commentary on the PM is out of China and the prospect for further easing Bloomberg economics, actually in China really killing it today because they've also written a piece about this bond market inclusion saying that China's bond market is more than too big to ignore. They point out. It's less correlated with other major markets. So that potentially office diversification potential. We keep talking about that hunt for yield. They also say that Chinese bonds have higher risk adjusted returns. And by the way, it's worth bearing in mind as well.
