With everything that's going on in the airline industry these days, most of us barely have time digest the information. To that end, today we are launching the Things With Wings Radio Show, a quasi-weekly podcast where we will chat with Aviation Week editors and industry observers to get some analysis on exactly what's going on.
Our show's inaugural first guest is Richard Aboulafia, who's vice president of analysis at the Teal Group, where he handles projects in the commercial and military aircraft field. He has his own web site, where, among other things, he writes a semi-regular monthly newsletter that are industry required reading, as it takes a humorous, but informative view of the industry. You can listen to my 10:20 minute interview here, where we discussed how high oil could go, airline capacity cuts, the outlook for mergers and who's next for a Ch. 11 filing. Enjoy! And tell us what you think about this new feature. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
