777X some good news for Boeing

Welcome to BTN. Do pass on to your friends and colleagues.  We are having a circulation drive.  Don't forget it is free and you only have to read the stories that interest you.

This week ON THE SOAPBOX SPECIAL welcomes Airlines UK chief executive Tim Alderslade as the British airlines face Brexit. In News, Boeing’s 777X finally takes to the air, LOT of Poland pulls off a coup with Condor, Lufthansa has big plans for the UK and robot parking is a success at Lyon. Our cruise feature is the first Monday of the month, but since WHICH? magazine has today featured a misleading article on cruising BTN makes a comment on the usually reliable publication. We have a FLYING AT THE FRONT END feature on Emirates, while AND FINALLY finds Boeing having possible language problems. See also BTN’s regular feeds on Twitter at #BTNewsUpdate.

BTN is edited by Richard Cawthorne. Please make sure he is on your mailing list for stories:

Don't forget to COMMENT in OUR READERS’ FINEST WORDS at the end of every article.
