While it may seem like the worst of the pandemic has passed, the long-term effects on the global aviation sector cannot be underestimated, with fleets of aircraft and business travel under threat of being phased out.

Hosts Adam Thorn and Christian “Boo” Boucousis discuss the uncertain future of the A380, the ambiguity surrounding European border closures, and a tragic puppy discovery on a Ukrainian International Airlines plane.

In this episode, Adam also talks to the VP Pacific of Qatar Airways, Tom Scruby, about why the airline decided to not only keep flying through COVID-19, but in some cases even increase its services, subsequently becoming one of the world’s biggest international carriers.
