In this week’s World of Aviation Podcast, hosts Adam Thorn and Christian “Boo” Boucousis recap Virgin Atlantic’s miraculous revival with a big helping hand from Sir Richard Branson, as well as the very slow resuscitation of the 737 MAX.

Tune in to this episode to hear Adam and Boo reflect on the ongoing rivalry between Boeing and Airbus, Singapore Airlines admitting it’s struggling, and Qatar Airways seeking compensation for losses over an airspace blockade.

They also discuss a new development in Pakistan’s dodgy-or-not licence scandal, a new ultra-luxury airport to open in Saudi Arabia in 2023, and the proliferation of unusual COVID-19 jobs for pilots that have been stood down or made redundant.
