Hi all! Iranoutofpuns here…
Q: I’m dead out of puns…sorry that the last post is punless
In terms of aviation this week, not much happened besides some the first Airbus A321neo flight in the world. The flight was operated by Virgin American and took place on the San Francisco to Washington-National route on Thursday, June 1. This is a major step for Airbus as well as for Virgin American and their parent company, Alaska Airlines.
Another piece of aviation news is that Japan Airlines announced the resumption of flights to Kona Airport at Keahole in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii. The flight will link the largest city on the island of Hawaii with Tokyo-Narita International Airport with a Boeing 767-300ER aircraft. This service is in competition with Hawaiian Airlines who flies from Kona to Tokyo-Haneda Airport.
There was also an incident of a potential kidnapping and/or human trafficking incident on an American Airlines flight, however it has not received much media attention. If reports are true, this a very serious incident that should not ever go unnoticed, otherwise it may cause more attempts at this type of human trafficking.
I am sad to say this will be my final post on the blog as I am moving on to bigger and better things. I have enjoyed writing these posts, but you can continue to follow my aviation writing at airlinegeeks.com.
See ya never again!
