The story that 18 women from Australia, the UK and France were invasively searched by Qatari authorities at Hamad Airport this month has refused to go away.

In the last few days, the Qatar government has finally issued an apology – but it seems to be more concerned with shifting the emphasis onto the missing baby.

On this week’s Inside Aviation, Phil and Adam discuss the impact on the industry, and whether Qatar will ever be able to regain passengers’ trust.

They also discuss the continual struggle to get passengers back home as border closures continue to bite, and why critics should be more understanding of under-fire airlines.
