Yes there is. The dance competition is now finalized. A + B vs B + E.


Boeing to take over $4.75 billion Embraer unit, targeting Airbus-Bombardier. 80-percent stake.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Sigh...yes it is the Merger/Acquisition season again (I'm even doing some of it...).  In addition to these, there is the UTC-Rockwell Collins merger plus a rumoured Honeywell-GE one...

I read yesterday the founder of WestJet and the founder of JetBlue have form an alliance to form a new start up airline in the States. They've just placed an order for 60 A220's

I read that too. Is the airline to be called JetJet or WestBlue?

I don't think WestJet will have anything to do with it. Mind you, I did hear today at YYC (WestJet's home base), that WestJet and Delta have signed an agreement to work together. And it's Delta that's at the nub of the A220/C Series quarrel (I thought it was them that ordered the C Series that got Boeing all in a snit)

Anyway, I got to sign off, I'm going to the Cold Lake Airshow tomorrow and Sunday.

Given what GE is divesting, I have to wonder who is acquiring who, there; Honeywell engines would nicely complement GE's portfolio of engines.

Bye bye A380, potentially hard times ahead for Broughton.

NOTAM to Airbus A350 operators.

Obviously Airbus doesn’t install cup holders in the cockpit. Gross oversight! :o

It would appear as such. Two solutions come to mind:

Airbus Embroidered Wineskin



or Airbus Camelback. Doubles as a safety vest.

The camelback might work until the pilot leans way back in the seat and liquid squirts out the tube. :o
Extreme testing will be required before being cleared for flight!
