Saturday with Chris Notter and Steven Dickson (part 14)

Another Saturday another session with Steven. Both of us experienced the additional work required with young dogs during the podcast. First time we both ended up having to clean up after a show! Also – another first – we had a big difference of opinion on private aviation!

Appreciation for and empathy towards all of our industry colleagues that have been, are and will be affected by the dramatic cuts and job losses that will be experienced in the next 6-9 months. More than anyone realised or expected. However, to survive the drastic downturn some tough decisions have to be made. We also cover the retirement of the ‘Queen of the Skies’, potential of drone drops for vaccines. Mentioned – Budapest Airport volumes up, Wizz Air, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and Delta, Ryan Air, Qatar – Guillaume Halleux, Menzies, Mervyn Walker, Robert Fordree and Chris Beale – Emirates, Etihad, 747 & 380. And congratulations to Tim Strauss on his new appointment as CEO of Amerijet. Planned Positives — ‘No matter how bad yesterday was, and today maybe, tomorrow can always be better!
