At times, it can feel like aviation is a slow-moving industry. But we’ve come a long way since the first powered flight in 1903. Consumerism, globalisation and advances in technology have all contributed to an industry now enjoyed by almost 12 million fliers on any given day. If anything, the pace of change is increasing. Fifty years ago, in 1969, we were landing on the moon using a guidance computer with less processing power than a modern pocket calculator (and by comparison an iPhone 6 is 120 million times faster than the computer that powered Apollo 11).

United Airlines | July 30, 2020

United Airlines on Thursday warned it may need to furlough more pilots than previously expected as a significant rebound in travel demand remains distant.
