This week saw some pretty extreme highs and lows, with two unfortunate plane crash incidents, as well as some major moves in the industry’s recovery prospects.

In this episode of the World of Aviation Podcast, host Adam Thorn and reporter Hannah Dowling reveal exactly what we know so far on two unfortunate plane crashes that occurred over the weekend – one in Hawaii and one in the Philippines.

Plus, the crew discusses Boeing’s latest hold-up in its 777X program, as well as United Airlines’ US$30 billion investment in nearly 300 new narrow-bodied jets.

Finally, the team explains the current state of aviation’s recovery progress across the globe, including recent major shifts in public sentiment driving up post-pandemic travel demand.
