Okay, so it has taken me a little longer to post this vlog than I expected, but the message to come out of ISTAT last month in Scottsdale is still all too relevant. There is a big – nay huge – divide between aircraft on order and aircraft that are currently financed (or have any hope of near-term financing). […]

VIDEO: Boeing 787 electrochromic windows in action

I’m working on a blog about the new electric-powered window shades now flying - much to the thrill of passengers – in the bathrooms of Qantas’ Airbus A380 aircraft. So keep an eye out for that.

VIDEO: Seaplanes, St Croix and hot sauce!

I had the very good fortune to travel to St Croix last week to visit Seaborne Airlines, a gutsy operator keeping a seaplane dream alive despite some pretty challenging conditions.

So trashy – a canny compactor that makes it all go away

It goes without saying that economy-class lavs on most commercial aircraft are not even remotely inviting (unless, perhaps, you’re using the plug socket as a free power source).
