Horizon Air operations stabilize as crisis abates – The Seattle Times
It’s good to see a little bit of light at the end of the tunnel for Horizon, but this is far from over. Next year, instead of the growth Horizon promised, it’s just going to retire 13 Q400s to be replaced by Embraer 175s. Stable is good, but it still feels precarious.
Two for the road:
Binge-watch all 12 ‘Earning Our Wings’ episodes starting today – Delta News Hub
Not sure if you saw it when it came out, but Delta has put out these roughly 4 minute videos on a regular basis showing the training life for flight attendants. It’s been a decent reality-ish show in bite-size pieces. Now that the 12 episodes are done, you can see them all right here.
RPT-Lockheed Martin could beat Boeing in race to supply Canada jets – Reuters
The fallout from Boeing’s big push for a retaliatory tariff on the Bombardier C-Series continues. Now Canada is refusing to buy 18 Boeing fighters and will instead buy some used aircraft from Australia. This order was just a stopgap until a bigger 88 airplane order is placed, and it’s now highly unlikely that Boeing will have a shot at that. This also give Lockheed new hope that it can get back in the game. This isn’t ideal for Boeing or for Canada, but I do enjoy seeing Boeing take this hit. (And if that’s not enough, how about Delta’s decision to order 100 A321neos instead of Boeing 737 MAX 10s?)
