    B738 'pickle fork' crack sees aircraft withdrawn

    They inspected 33 planes so far, so that's 12% of the inspected. That being said, the other 42 lower cycle ones are less likely to have cracks.

    Huge Adverse Anomaly in Qantas Business Class Fares vs Emirates same flights same dates

    I mean it’s only 2x the price, QF sells trans Tasman J fare on Latam at 3-4x the price for the exact same flight, now that’s egregious
