Greetings from Midtown Manhattan. I’ll be on my way home shortly after a great weekend at FTU in New York. If you missed it, there the next event is in Washington DC coming up in August. It was a great honor to meet many readers this weekend.
Rounding out the top stories: Qatar Airways’ CEO made (another) sexist remark, Cubana suspended all domestic flights…or maybe it didn’t, and a $500 fine was dropped against a woman who “smuggled” an apple into the USA given to her by Delta. Furthermore, Sun Country announced a new livery.
Below you’ll find a review of the week’s top stories plus a link to every article that appeared on Live and Let’s Fly over the last seven days. I wish you all a great week ahead.
