Plane Talking UK's Podcast

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.
