Canada’s Porter Airlines, despite not having flown a single flight since last March, is reimagining itself by ordering its first jets and moving some flights into Toronto Pearson. Reporter Ned Russell and Editor Madhu Unnikrishnan talk about what that means for the quirky airline and wonder what Porter’s raccoon spokescritter is named. Later in the episode, Ned and Madhu discuss what may be behind United’s recent orders for new-technology aircraft (spoiler: it has nothing to do with networks).
