Salon du Bourget… A sea of parked cars, with one objective: to go look at parked airplanes. Two things are obvious under these circumstances, 1) Moto-Taxis are GOOD BUSINESS and 2) diplomatic – political advantage (ugly, darkly tinted, chauffer driven, french sedans with a blue light turning on the dashboard and a sickly siren) are GOOD PERKS. Think I prefer auto-shows… Come to think of it, it was sort-of a two-for-one.
In either case, unless you are in a GOOD BUSINESS or get GOOD PERKS, there was no GOOD REASON to be on the road this morning.
There must be a leader-list somewhere, though these caught my attention:
- EADS has ranked up 544 ‘promises’ for the A320neo family
- Korean Air
- Malaysian Air
- Mongolian Airlines
- Norwegian Air Shuttle
EasyJet is threatening a strike mid-July, and EADS is working with Rolls-Royce for the A350-1000.
