Podcast: IATA AGM

As senior management from the world's airline industry gather in Doha, Qatar this week for the IATA Annual General Meeting (AGM), Aviation Week Managing Editor Jens Flottau, Brussels Bureau Chief Cathy Buyck and I kick around a few thoughts with Engagement Editor Rupa Haria on what the themes of this year's conference might be.
