2017 is being hailed as the safest year for aviation, but 2018 seems to have started with a bang – or at least, a slap.
America’s Delta Airlines says goodbye to the iconic Boeing 747 “Jumbo Jet” this week, with the Queen of the Skies getting an unexpected extension of service at the last minute.
Delta Airlines signed a deal with Airbus for 100 A321 aircraft, with an option for 100 more, seeking to replace its aging fleet of MD90, Boeing 757 and Airbus A320 aircraft.
On December 4, 2017, an Emirates A380 flying EK207 (Dubai to New York JFK) had a close call on approach.
Plunging the A380’s future into further doubt, Rolls Royce (RR) has said that it sees no business case for technological investment in the Trent 900.
An under-maintanence Qatar Airways A321 caught fire at Hamad International Airport, Doha.
