In the wake of Brexit, will the U.K. be able to remain in the European Common Aviation Area? We don’t know. But we do know that if the U.K. is relegated to some other status, it would obviously impact airlines inside and outside the U.K. In this episode we do a quick survey of airlines such as British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Flybe, easyJet, Norwegian and Aer Lingus and attempt to size up each of their levels of exposure to Brexit fallout.

Frontier Airlines had a terrific first quarter, but not as terrific as its peers—does that matter? Air Mauritius has returned to profitability, but is it sustainable in a region that’s likely to only become more competitive? In Canada, NewLeaf is looking to take flight in July, and WestJet appears to be well aware of it.
