Global Aviation Regulators Meet To Consider Timetable For Boeing's 737 Max
How will aviation authorities around the world go about certifying Boeing's 737 Max as airworthy again? How soon can the troubled plane be cleared to fly passengers again? Those are the central questions up for discussion as about five dozen aviation safety officials representing more than 33 countries meet in Fort Worth, Texas. The discussions are critical as Boeing says it has completed a software fix for an automated flight control system that is linked to two deadly crashes, one in Indonesia last fall and a second in Ethiopia in March. The crashes killed a total of 346 people and led authorities globally to ground the plane. U.S. aviation safety officials want to reassure the flying public that the plane will be made safe to fly again while at the same time they try to restore confidence in their own safety review process. Close to 400 Max planes worldwide are sitting idle. Airlines have removed the new plane from their flight schedules through early to mid-August, forcing them to cancel some flights that would have been on Max planes through most of the busy summer travel season.

test Q&A WITH ED BREAULT

aprimo | March 31, 2020

MEDIA 7: What’s your superpower? ED BREAULT: I would say it’s applying the full spectrum of art and science that is required in marketing today. Not just left or right brained, but whole-brained strategy. Being human yet data-driven and really understanding numbers and (the right) metrics to make connections to business drivers. Add storytelling to that, so I can effectively communicate to my team, the CEO and CFO as well as my Board of Directors on those metrics, and connecting all that we are doing in marketing to the mission of the business. Then quickly shifting gears to the art and creative aspects of marketing that are required to engage an audience and tell great co...

TravelDailyNews International | April 08, 2020

ATPCO has embarked on a pro-bono initiative to help airlines, sales channels, and people who fly, and we thought you might be interested in knowing about it. While most airlines have cut back schedules significantly or are even grounded at the moment, it’s a fluid situation. There are still many flights operating, some scheduled flights are being brought back into operation already, and there is still flight shopping for the future. Those traveling now - and those who will fly again in the future - are rightfully concerned about their health and safety when they travel. ATPCO saw an urgent need to help convey the measures airlines are taking to protect passengers when they are consider...
