Just Plane Nonsense

We’ve Got A Thing, And It’s Called #Avgeek Love

  • From Airways News – Boeing and Airbus are pushing planes out fast, however the 4 big seatmakers are what is slowing things. As if we didn’t already know this was a problem.
  • Economy and Beyond reports that Finnair has announced A350 services — usually airlines operate shorthaul first, then take some time with the long haul, it looks like Finnair will be doing just that. The first three long haul services do start in the last quarter of the year to Asia, Shanghai, Beijing, and Bangkok. Business class looks similar to Qatar Airway’s A350’s, with a reverse herringbone seat, could be nice.

From the Realm Beyond…(Or: Other Stuff That Joe Couldn’t Fit In A Quirky Headline Title)

  • From Wandering Aramean: a short review of Doha’s awesome amenities. Its not just the big yellow teddy bear that will draw you in, Hamad International Airport also has a hotel, gym (with pool) and spa! Trevor’s been through Doha quite a bit (even being remembered by some of the gate agents), but not yet made it to the hotel or the gym; unless you could doing the steps between levels of Qatar’s Al Mourjan lounge!
  • Buzzfeed, that paramount of digital journalism, showcases Australian people trying Outback Steakhouse. The best part is at the end, which, if we might say, just puts an exclamation point on the importance of travel.
