    Extreme turbulence

    Extreme turbulence

    On this week’s episode of AvTalk, we discuss the extreme turbulence encountered by Singapore Airlines’ flight SQ321 that led to the death of one passenger and serious injuries to dozens of others. We also focus on how media reporting got the story wrong for so long. We also discuss the crash of the helicopter carrying the president of Iran and the curious pattern by the Turkish UCAV sent to search for the crash site. Elsewhere, Frontier is crafting a new way to sell fares and ancillary products that looks remarkably like a traditional airline. And flamingos make an unexpected appearance.

    A new challenger emerges

    A new challenger emerges

    On this week’s episode of AvTalk, we learn that Embraer is considering a challenge to the Airbus-Boeing duopoly with a new mainline single-aisle aircraft of its own.

    Indigo orders up to 100 Airbus A350s, while Airbus navigates Boeing’s potential purchase of Spirit Aerosystems and what that means for the A350 fuselage sections and A220 wings Spirit produces.

    Finnair suspends flights to Tartu, Estonia due to GPS interference.

    Lessors get a win in their battle to get their aircraft back from Go First, but the long road ahead to get the A320neos flying again is just beginning.

    Australian low-cost carrier Bonza has halted all flights and entered insolvency proceedings.

    JetBlue is bringing back its oldest A320s from retirement, while American Airlines is trimming its route network due to lack of aircraft.
