3 Links I Love: Jet is Another Etihad Failure, Pittsburgh Fight, Mr Awesome’s 727

This week’s featured link

Times of India
I’m going to go ahead and call that headline misleading even if it may technically possibly be true. If Jet couldn’t get funding to keep flying, what’s the chance it can get money to actually make this a “temporary” grounding? My expectations are low, just like they are for every airline Etihad has invested in. Watch out, Virgin Australia. Let’s hope the Etihad curse somehow can’t stretch that far from Abu Dhabi.

Image of the week (): I was challenged to see if I could get from the LA to Nashville on small airplanes. Indeed, I can. Red is Boutique Air, Purple in Contour, Light Blue is Advanced Air, Dark Blue is Southern Air Express, and Black is Air Choice One. Only the two green segs can’t be flown today, but you can nearly do a roundtrip without overlapping. (All are props except for Contour on an ERJ.)

Two for the road

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Well this is fun. The architect behind the original terminal’s design says that this new plan to fix PIT is going to cost a ton more. The airport says he’s just mad his old firm didn’t win the project. I guess we’ll find out who is right once the final numbers come in and the project is done.

If you aren’t familiar with what happened to Chris Sloan’s son, Calder, it’s a heart-breaking story. But on the 5th anniversary of his untimely death, the Miami Airport did something pretty great. I like to share stories like these, because there aren’t enough of them. The Miami Airport deserves some atta-boys for this one.
