"So it could potentially eventually become a fight safety issue. But right now, no one outside of Qatar is really saying that that's a thing right now. Right, it's interesting to me that Qatar, it's not even Qatar airways. It's the Qatar civilization of Qatar. Airways. So Qatar airways has been doing the complaining to Airbus. The grounding of the aircraft is actually a regulatory issue, which is very interesting to me considering that no one else has taken that step. But it is interesting to me that given the now that we know a bit more about the nature of the issue. And how the paint is peeling and what's being affected. If it is, in fact, just not just, but is the problem enhanced or made worse, really. By the weather in Qatar being located where it is dealing with extreme heat on the ground and then extreme cold in the air. That seems to be not great situation as far as the paint's concerned. And I guess it'll be even more interesting to see what Airbus comes up with as a permanent solution. The Reuters report says that they've stood up a multi functional task force. There it is, which sounds very impressive. So hopefully this gets solved. Sooner rather than later, I mean, especially now that it's out in the open. We'll see. Stay tuned.

"So this was a commercial flights by Qatar Airways, Qatar, The Gulf Arab state is clearly a host for the Taliban for several years. They have a role as a kind of bridge because it's also the home to an enormous American air base. And you saw the American secretary of State and Defense Secretary go a few days ago two cutter and praise because of for its help in organizing these evacuations, But this was a commercial flight. At least you know that was how it was presented. It wasn't an evacuation flights and they said Qatari special forces to guard the plane and the people on board were basically Americans, citizens in green card holders, plus Canadians. Germans have some British who have almost exclusively of Afghan origin, and you had some interesting reporting on the ground that these were often people had gone home to see families and left it too late to leave and got stuck. And some of them were given a very short amount of notes just a few hours notice rung up by American officials and told you have to get to a city Centre Hotel where the Qataris will take you to the airfield and John, you mentioned why the Biden administration has been in fact praising the Taliban for their professionalism and help. One reason is that there are still American citizens in Afghanistan. And the Taliban, or at least promising that if they have the right papers in American passports, they will let them leave, in particular, is about 100 American citizens, plus another several 100, Afghans and green card holders in the northern city of Mazar e Sharif, trying to get charter flights out. For the moment, the Taliban, saying they have to go out through Kabul. So there is a lot to play for in this kind of last attempt to get the last American passport holders out. Not obviously, as far as we tell very little hope for the many, much larger numbers tens of thousands of Afghans who worked with the coalition forces and who should be allowed out but seem to have missed the chance now. But we also heard from Afghanistan's former president Ashraf Ghani. Earlier this week. Jen, What did he have to say? Yeah, This was a really bizarre kind of moment. So he posted this letter on Twitter, and the letter was exclusively in English. It wasn't translated into any other languages. Uh, namely the languages that most people in Afghanistan speak. So it was a open question just from the start. Who exactly? He was addressing here. Um, the letter was addressed to people in his country. It started out, he says, I owe the Afghan people an explanation for leaving Kabul abruptly in August 15th after the Taliban. Unexpectedly unexpectedly entered the city. So it was framed as this apology to his own people that he, you know, abandoned Essentially, And yet it was. It was only in English. It was a bit odd, but he went on to say, you know, essentially trying to explain himself that he left at the urging of palace security that you know, he he thought that the Taliban was going essentially door to door and the palace coming to get him and he had to flee. Um And, you know, he also addressed directly this criticism these allegations that he had fled with suitcases full of cash of the Afghan people's money. Essentially, he you know emphatically denied that, um But again it was a really odd statement because you know here he is, You know, hiding out. He's in the United Arab Emirates in the E. He left right away. Meanwhile, you know other senior leaders in the government stayed behind and we're willing to, you know. At least show that they were not fleeing and that they were there to still help and try to represent the Afghan people. So I don't think that there's apology is going to really do quite what he thought he.

One thousand five hundred a week. Melbourne brisbane dropped down to five hundred passengers. Awake and perth adelaide. Down to only two hundred sixty five eighty per week. The impact of that was already quite devastating but that was only supposed to be until the end of august. Sadly last week the australian government extended those halved arrived caps until now the end of october and that in fact they didn't even have the courtesy of announcing this publicly. What they did is they just informed the airlines and the airlines have now had to stop dumping twenty seven thousand. People in total of flights. Were booked on over the next two months ellen.

British Airways re-routes flights away from Strait of Hormuz after downing of US drone

"The tensions with Iran might mean your flight could be taking a different path the FAA yesterday issued an emergency. Order prohibiting US carriers from flying in airspace controlled by Iran over the strait of Hormuz and Gulf of Oman. More from this morning's Mike Gavin. The order came hours after United Airlines suspended flights between Newark liberty airport in New Jersey and the Indian financial capital of Mumbai. The agency said it's concerned about military activity near civil aircraft fruits, as well as around willingness to use long range missiles with little or no warning in international airspace. The FAA said calculations indicate the nearest passenger jet was operating around forty five nautical miles of the drone shot down by Iranian surface to air missile, Gordon, Mike, the notice from the FAA does not apply to airlines from other countries.
