The last few days have seen a shift in sentiment amid the global airline sector in regard to COVID-19, from initially being focused on getting people home to now aggressively calling for government bailouts.

Join hosts Phil Tarrant, Christian “Boo” Boucousis and senior writer Adam Thorn on this episode of the podcast as they reveal which airline is being the most vocal in their demands, and conversely, which carrier is using the current situation as a PR opportunity to put themselves on the map.

They delve into the conversation around cargo and how it’s being moved, the latest news from the Chinese airline sector, and Boo’s experience returning to Australia following his Learjet training.


Tune in to hear how Rolls-Royce have been affected, whether other companies on the supply chain deserve to receive a government bailout, and the issues Boeing are having in getting the 737 MAX back in service.
