Podcast: Top Performing Airlines - The Winners & Losers

RSS

In this week's Check 6 podcast, I talk to Adrian Schofield, senior air transport editor, and Jens Flottau, managing editor, commercial, about the results of Aviation Week's annual Top Performing Airlines study (read a summary of the results here).  We discuss why Latin American carriers are the stars of the show, why EasyJet is dominating the rankings in Europe and why Asian carriers, which once ranked high on our TPA study, have dropped down the list. 

And as the airline industry gathers in Doha next week, Jens offers his take on what topics will make the most noise at the IATA Annual General Meeting. Stay tuned for more coverage from the AGM on our special coverage page.
