Plane Talking UK's Podcast

Join Carlos, Nev (eventually!), Jodi Armando and Matt for a very special episode.

In a week where the longest ever direct flight takes off for the first time we discover that BA are planning to operate an A380 into Dubai, sweeping changes are promised at Delta and an Air India plane has a coming together with a wall.

We are so honoured to have had Jodi Rueger join us on this week's show and we had a great chat about her love of flying, her career and the world of Acrobatic flying. You can find out more about her by looking at her YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyJhMuL7_-0NzbSkx2cij_A or search social media for @quotafiller.

Join Carlos, Nev and Matt for today's show.

In this episode we're talking about the dramatic collapse of one low cost transatlantic airline, there's another rather amusing paint-job fail to rival Cathay Paciic and one airline decides to tighten the rules for emotional support animals.

In the military it's exciting news for the HMS Queen Elizabeth and talks are underway between the UK and Boeing for their Wedgetail.

Carlos talks to Graham, Captain Al, Fabian and Philip at Farnborough and Nev talks to Jordan about the routes he's been taking in the air recently. We also have some quick 'in-flight' feedback from Evan.
