Last week, passengers onboard the United Airlines 777 that suffered an engine failure in February officially moved to take a class action suit against the airline for the incident, citing emotional distress.

In this episode of the World of Aviation Podcast, host Adam Thorn and reporter Hannah Dowling discuss whether or not United is at fault for the incident, and if passengers have any leg to stand on in their suit.

The team also explores Dubai Airport’s controversial iris-scanning device that is set to replace both passport and boarding card for travellers coming through the Middle Eastern hub, and the threats to personal data safety it could present.

Finally, the crew look into the turning tides for Boeing, as the embattled planemaker begins to pick up some steam in 2021, after its notorious ‘year from hell’ in 2020.
