This is an abbreviated Odds and Ends; we are traveling this week and next and we’re not sure if we’ll have the chance to update while we are on the road. Meantime:

Orient Aviation magazine has a cover story profile of John Leahy, COO of Customers, and it’s a good one.

  1. ^^^For one of their fews articles that doesn’t have it’s lips attached to Boeing’s behind, it actually doesn’t really say anything new on the whole 787 fiasco, seems like a slight rehash of what Flightglobal published a few months back.

    • Yup,
      Keep in mind that “Der Spiegel” has long lost the bite that got them
      the distinction of being harassed and searched on request by the then
      Minister of War FJ Strauss.

      My point was that “Der Spiegel”
      (a) seems to have got a voucher for a less than pro Boeing article and
      (b) doing a writeup in aeerospace territory that is not full of factual errors and sensationalism.

      My synopsis: “prettyprinting” the Dreamliners is no longer of interest or deemed usefull.
