Can It Get Any Better? Airline Weekly Lounge Episode 1

July 22nd, 2015 at 1:53 PM EDT

Our inaugural episode of the Airline Weekly Lounge went live today. Within it, Seth Kaplan and I discuss this golden age for U.S. aviation. Can profits get any better? Along those lines, Delta reported earnings last week. They were exemplary, of course, even despite wrong-way fuel hedges. And Norwegian released its second quarter report as well.

Norwegian is, of course, most interesting because of its experimentation with long-cost long-haul flying. It’s always interesting to hear how that’s going. And as we discussed in this week’s cover story of Airline Weekly, Emirates is facing real headwinds. In the Lounge podcast, we discuss Emirates’s situation a little more deeply. And, I asked Seth whether Turkish Airlines’s break-neck growth rate is sustainable. Our first podcast—it’s sure to be a collector’s item. So, do check it out.
