During the annual spring break season, many students may choose to head to Daytona Beach, but throughout the year aviation history buffs may want to head to Dayton, in the central Ohio. The sixth-largest city in Buckeye State is home to Wright-Patter Air Force Base, where air operations take place on land that is now part of the military installation, but was first used by Wilbur and Orville Wright in 1904.

After World War I, captured German planes were brought into the field and incorporated into a small army museum dedicated to aviation. Some of these planes are still part of the collection, which has grown steadily over the years to form what is today the United States National Air Force Museum. It is the oldest and largest military aviation museum in the world, with over 360 airplanes and missiles on display. tourist attractions throughout the Midwest.

Its exhibits are spread over 1,120,000 square feet in four huge aircraft hangars divided into a dozen galleries, which explore the history of military aviation from the beginning of the 20th century, through the two world wars and up to the modern era. In addition to the expected focus on military warbirds, the museum is also home to numerous research and development (R&D) aircraft as well as many aircraft used by former presidents of the United States.

A collection of the most remarkable

Among these 360 ​​planes in the collection are some really important planes, notably a Sopwith F.1 Camel, the most successful fighter to have flown in WWI; one of four Convair B-36 Peacemakers; the only surviving North American XB-70 Valkyrie; and Bockscar, the Boeing B-29 Superfortress which dropped the “Fat Man” atomic bomb on Nagasaki in August 1945. In 2018, the museum also permanently presented to the public the restored Boeing B-17F, known as the “Memphis Belle “.

The history and evolution of airplanes can truly be appreciated through each of these four hangars. Within the Eugene W. Kettering Cold War Gallery, named after the first Chairman of the Air Force Museum Foundation Board of Trustees, are planes as impressive as a Lockheed U-2A, a Lockheed SR-71A Blackbird and even a Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk. In the Allan & Malcolm Lockheed & Glenn Martin Space Gallery, some of the most notable aeronautical spacecraft used by the US military are also on display, from the Fairchild C-119J Flying Boxcar satellite sensor to the Hexagon KH-9 reconnaissance satellite.

The William E. Boeing Presidential Gallery includes several airplanes that were used by former Presidents Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Dwight D. Eisenhower; while the collection also includes SAM 26000, the modified Boeing 707 known as VC-137C. It was a plane that flew President John F. Kennedy to Dallas on November 22, 1963, and it was there that Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in as president after Kennedy’s assassination on that day. terrible. Almost a decade later, in 1972, the same aircraft was used by former President Richard M. Nixon on his historic “Journey for Peace” visit to the People’s Republic of China.

Honor the greatest generation

As you might expect, the National Museum of the United States Air Force pays homage to the greater generation as it houses a large number of WWII aircraft. In addition to the aforementioned B-17s and B-29s, there are countless American, British, German, Italian and Japanese aircraft in the collection, including a Supermarine Spitfire which was used by the RAF, a Republic P-17D Thunderbolt , and one of the few surviving German Messerschmitt Me 262A Schwalbes, the first successful combat jet fighter.

It is not only the planes that make up the museum’s collection. The installation helps tell the story of the aviators who also flew the aircraft. There are exhibits dedicated to Aviator Tuskegee, the first African-American military aviators in the United States Armed Forces; the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP), the organization of female civilian pilots that helped test and transport US military planes during World War II; and notably the American Volunteer Group (AVG) – alias “Flying Tigers” – which was headed by Claire Chennault and served in China and Burma to aid the Chinese in the war against imperial Japan.

Another exhibit is dedicated to the infamous Doolittle Raiders, the pilots who participated in the top secret mission to bomb Tokyo on April 18, 1942. Although not one of the planes used in the Doolittle Raid, the museum has a B-25 which was rebuilt and painted to the configuration of the lead B-25B piloted by Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle in Tokyo. This plane and so many others are just a special reminder of the sacrifices made by those brave men and women who bravely got carried away in the wild blue over there.

The commanders of the Israeli and German air forces carried out a joint overflight in the Israeli skies on Sunday in a sign of international solidarity.

The flyby took place as part of the IAF Blue Flag military aviation exercise currently taking place in Israel.

The joint training was led by the Commander of the Israel Air Force, Major General Amikam Norkin and the Commander of the German Air Force, Lt. Gen. Ingo Gerhartz. The flyby passed over the Israeli Knesset building in Jerusalem.

“The winds of history are strongly felt throughout the capital of Israel,” Norkin said via a radio broadcast from his jet during the overflight.

The Israeli and German commanders also visited the Yad Vashem Holocaust Remembrance Center in Jerusalem, where they visited the “Flashs of Memory” photo exhibit and participated in a memorial ceremony at the Hall of Remembrance. During the ceremony, commanders lit the Eternal Flame and laid a commemorative wreath in honor of the victims of the Holocaust.

“This visit is not the usual visit,” Norkin noted. “Last year we flew over the Dachau camp and said side by side, ‘Never again. “

Israeli and German planes fly over Jerusalem, a sign of the close link between the two countries and their armies.

The chief of the Israeli Air Force, Major General Amikam Norkin, directs the Israeli planes, while the German planes are led by Lieutenant General Ingo Gerhartz.

It is the first time that a German military plane has flown over Jerusalem since World War I.

The planes fly over the Knesset and other government buildings towards the Malha neighborhood in Jerusalem.

Earlier today, Norkin and Gerhartz together visited the Yad Vashem Holocaust museum in the capital, according to the military.

German planes are in Israel for a biennial multinational air exercise known as the Blue Flag. Countries participating in Exercise Blue Flag will conduct another overflight in about an hour, over Jerusalem and Tel Aviv.

The fall semester will be with us before we know it.

With the coronavirus pandemic disrupting travel plans this summer, an October getaway could appeal to many.

Hoping to take advantage of the autumn sun or just get away from normal, the Brits may be planning to fly away for half the quarter.

Read more: Traveling in Hertfordshire

However, it is important to know the latest rules for overseas travel before you go.

There are still a few countries on the red list that have stricter rules, but popular vacation destinations like Italy, France, Germany and Spain are not on the list.

Here are the latest rules for traveling abroad:

Trial

As of October 4, all fully vaccinated travelers coming to the UK no longer have to take a covid test before traveling (from countries not on the red list).

They must, however, be able to prove that they have had both doses of the covid vaccine.

Those under 18 are also not required to take the test – they are not required to be double stung.

There is another big change regarding the covid tests which are arriving just in time for the school holidays.

From next Sunday (October 24), Britons returning to the UK from a foreign country (red list not included) will no longer need to take a PCR test on their return if they are fully vaccinated.

This means holidaymakers will save a lot of money, with PCRs costing £ 50 and up.

However, they will need to take a lateral flow test two days after their return – which is much more affordable.

It is very important to know that the NHS lateral flow tests should not be used for this reason, passengers should purchase private tests from one of the government providers.

Tests must be booked before you go on vacation and results must be submitted in the form of a photo of the test.

This rule change will only apply to people who are fully vaccinated or under the age of 18.

If you are looking for a way to keep up to date with the latest news from Hertfordshire, the HertsLive newsletter is a good place to start.

We choose the most important stories of the day for inclusion in the newsletter, including crime, court news, long readings, traffic and travel, food and drink articles and more.

Signing up for the newsletter is easy. All you have to do is click here and enter your email address.

This is one of the many ways you can read the news that interests you from HertsLive.

What if I am not vaccinated?

From October 24, the rules will be different for anyone who is not fully vaccinated.

If you haven’t had both jabs, you’ll still need to take a covid test three days before you return to the UK.

Once back, you must isolate yourself at home for 10 days.

You will also need to take two tests on your return – one on the second day and one on the eighth day.

The red list

There are currently only seven countries on the red list.

These countries should not be traveled except “in the most extreme circumstances”.

Anyone traveling to Red List countries is required to test before traveling, complete a passenger locator form and must self-isolate for 10 days in a quarantine hotel.

The rules apply to everyone and the immunization status does not change them.

The following counties are on the red list:

  • Colombia
  • Dominican Republic
  • Ecuador
  • Haiti
  • Panama
  • Peru
  • Venezuela

(CNN) – When Airbus announced plans to stop production of its A380 aircraft in 2019, heartbroken aviation fans took comfort in the fact that the superjumbo was not about to stop flying from so early.

Production of this popular aircraft was to continue for a few more years, and many airlines had A380s active in their fleets.

But fast-forwarding a year, and the A380’s towering size and high operating costs had no place in the pandemic’s minimal and profitable international flight schedules.

Thanks to Covid-19, most of the global A380 fleet has been grounded.

Lufthansa’s decision to park its A380 turned into a German carrier permanently withdrawing superjumbos. The last A380 in Air France colors has made its last flight. It was increasingly difficult to know if the A380 would survive the shutdown.

But while the days of the A380 are undoubtedly numbered, some airlines have announced plans to put the plane back in the air. Singapore Airlines will reinstate the A380 on November 2021 flights to London, the same month British Airways will fly superjumbos from the UK to Europe.

If you’re still hoping to experience the A380’s spacious and memorable interior and a quiet flying experience before the airplane is a thing of the past, here’s our roundup of A380 air routes to check out.

Singapore Airlines

The A380’s very first commercial trip in 2007 was via Singapore Airlines, traveling from Singapore to Sydney.

Before the pandemic, Singapore Airlines had 17 A380s. They were all grounded when Covid-19 hit, and in November 2020 the airline announced plans to cut its superjumbo fleet to 12.

Now, Singapore Airlines has revealed plans to return some of its A380s to the skies.

Siva Govindasamy, head of global public affairs for Singapore Airlines, said Singapore Airlines recognizes the A380’s enduring appeal to passengers, and that’s part of why the airline is putting the plane back into rotation.

“The A380 is a wonderful aircraft,” he said. “Some people just reserve the A380 specifically to fly on it.”

Govindasamy added that it made economic sense to bring the A380 back to the London-Singapore route, as the plane’s seating density lends itself well to routes where airport slots are limited.

The decision is also part of Singapore Airlines’ “premium positioning”, as Govindasamy puts it.

“From a brand perspective, the A380 really ticks a lot of the boxes for us who operate it,” he said.

As for re-establishing the A380 for destinations beyond London, Govindasamy said Singapore Airlines is currently considering other routes that could be well served by the superjumbo.

“We will continue to monitor this very closely over the next few weeks and months before making this decision,” he said, adding that the return of the A380 to its original Singapore-Sydney route was something the airline “wouldn’t say no to”. “

Nine of Singapore Airlines’ A380s have undergone refurbishment and three are under refurbishment. Travelers setting off in first class on the re-established route from London to Singapore will enjoy the airline’s chic suites.

Choice route: London to Singapore – be one of the first to experience the return of Singapore Airlines A380s

British Airways

After months of transatlantic travel restrictions, the US / UK travel corridor is expected to reopen in November and BA is increasing its flight schedule accordingly.

Travelers will enjoy the comfortable interior of the plane en route to Los Angeles and Miami this winter, as well as the London to Dubai cruise in December.

But before the superjumbos transport British travelers to the United States for long-awaited escapades, they will first cross the Channel on some short-haul flights “to allow the crew to familiarize themselves,” according to a statement from BA.

It’s not everyday that you fly from London to Europe in a double-decker plane, so the avgeeks will desperately try to reserve seats on these one-off flights.

Trying to book on these routes is a guess for now, as BA has yet to confirm which short-haul flights will operate the A380.

Itinerary of choice: London to Los Angeles – the perfect winter vacation, and what a way to get back to the transatlantic journey

Emirates

The largest operator of the A380 is Emirates. When Emirates’ last superjumbo joins its fleet later this year, the Dubai-based airline will house 118 A380s.

The airline announced in September 2021 its intention to deploy the A380 in 27 cities by the end of November 2021. Travelers will be able to travel on the Emirates A380 to destinations such as Amsterdam, Sao Paulo and Zurich.

Onboard Emirates A380s are chic lounges and private suites, and premium travelers can even shower on board with the A380’s shower spa.

The route to follow is from Dubai to Auckland – the size and comfort of the Airbus A380 makes it ideal for long-haul travel, and before the pandemic, Dubai to Auckland was the longest non-stop route for the Airbus A380 . Emirates planes cover 14,193 kilometers on the 10-hour journey.

Choice route: from Dubai to Istanbul, a first for the A380 and the opportunity to return to a superjumbo this year.

Qatar Airways

The statement has left many worried about the future of the superjumbo at Qatar Airways, but as international travel increases, the landscape appears to be changing.

According to the airline’s online schedule, Qatar Airways plans to operate A380s between Doha and London Heathrow, and Doha and Paris Charles de Gaulle, from December 2021.

A spokesperson for Qatar Airways declined to comment on the return to service of the A380 and the airline’s future plans for the aircraft.

Route of choice: Doha to Paris – the A380s were assembled in France, so it seems appropriate to revisit a superjumbo where it all began

Qantas

Qantas has 12 A380s in its fleet, and they were initially not scheduled to resume service until 2023. However, in August 2021, the Australian airline confirmed that five of its A380s will resume flying earlier than expected.

The superjumbos are expected to operate Qantas’ Sydney-Los Angeles route from July 2022, and from November 2022, they are expected to travel between Sydney and London via Singapore.

“The A380s perform well on these long-haul routes when demand is sufficient, and the high vaccination rates in both markets would support it,” a Qantas statement read.

While two of Qantas’ A380s are expected to be retired, the other 10 are all expected to return to service with newly upgraded interiors by early 2024, according to the airline’s statement, which said the timing would depend “on how fast with which the market is recovering “.

Announcing the return of the A380 in 2022, Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce said the decision was made because the UK and US were “key markets for Qantas” before the pandemic and seem to be recovering well.

“We expect the demand for travel on these routes to be strong enough for the A380,” he added.

“The A380 is a great aircraft that our passengers love. The 10 planes we are bringing back will have all new interiors and we expect them to be part of our fleet for many years to come, ”Joyce said.

Choice route: Los Angeles to Sydney – return to Australia in style

Korean Air

Before the pandemic, Korean Air’s 10 A380s were “primarily used on high-traffic long-haul routes,” a Korean Air spokesperson told CNN Travel.

While Korean Air’s A380s currently do not fly to JFK Airport in New York or Charles de Gaulle in Paris, two of the aircraft’s former haunts, the Korean Air spokesperson confirmed that the airline is currently operating the A380 from Incheon to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in China. one week.

Guangzhou is also a hub for China Southern Airlines, which has five A380s. The Chinese airline currently flies superjumbos between Melbourne and Guangzhou every week, as well as on some flights to and from Los Angeles, according to FlightAware.com.

Korean Air is in the process of merging with Asiana Airlines, an airline that itself owns six A380s.

The Korean Air spokesman told CNN Travel a recent interview with FlightGlobal in which Korean Air chairman Walter Cho said that “the A380s will leave Korean Air’s fleet within five years.”

The days of Korean Air’s A380 may be numbered, but they are still here for now.

Japanese airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) launched its first A380 in 2019. Another superjumbo followed a few months later, and from October 16, ANA will have three A380s in its fleet when a third “Flying Honu” will join its range.

All of Nippon Airways’ A380s are perhaps the most distinctive superjumbos in the world, each painted in vivid hues to resemble Hawaiian sea turtles, a nod to their flight route from Tokyo Narita, Japan, in Honolulu, Hawaii. “Honu” is a term used for sea turtles in Hawaii.

A spokesperson for All Nippon Airways told CNN Travel that although its A380s do not fly regularly to Hawaii – a Boeing 747 currently flies this route – the airline “is looking for opportunities to fly the A380 on the Narita – Honolulu Highway on high season days limited. ” In August, an All Nippon Airways A380 made two round trips between Narita and Honolulu.

ANA’s A380s also performed domestic charter flights – “flights to nowhere” – and were used as pop-up restaurants.

ANA told CNN Travel that it is “closely monitoring demand as well as immigration guidelines and public health measures implemented by the respective government” to determine when the A380 can return on a more regular basis.

Choice route: Tokyo to Honolulu – keep an eye out for announcements and head to Hawaii in the most jazzy A380 around

TRENTON – Amid concerns about rising violence, especially among those with guns, a new report suggests the state is emphasizing community alternatives rather than increased policing to stem the tide.

Marleina Ubel, policy analyst for New Jersey Policy Perspective, said community-led programs can do more effective work in reducing crime and improving safety, health and educational attainment. She said she doesn’t expect police to fight the idea if the legislature passes it.

“We are talking about investing in models that serve communities in crisis. We’re not talking about doing anything from the police or taking anything from the police, ”Ubel said.

Reverend Charles Boyer, founding director of Salvation and Social Justice, said the current approach to public safety makes no sense – not providing any support to people, then sending armed police officers who would rather not be confronted with addiction and mental health issues. .

“It’s just not what they signed up for, and it’s definitely not what they’re equipped for,” Boyer said.

A campaign to shift to non-police responses to non-violent situations involving mental health and substance abuse kicks off Monday with a conference at an Elizabeth Church.

The NJPP report found that Elizabeth spends more than five times as much of her police budget as her health and social services department. In Gloucester County, police got two and a half times the spending on health and social services programs.

“The way we do things doesn’t make us a safer society,” Boyer said. “It only exacerbates the problems.”

The Newark Community Street Team is offering this type of alternative response in the state’s largest city, with the goal of connecting residents with addiction and mental health help they usually don’t know about. not even that they are available.

“When we are able to serve upstream victims, we prevent them from becoming downstream perpetrators – and they are victims of crime and victims of systems,” said Solomon Middleton-Williams, deputy director of NCST.

Ubel said there was money available through the US federal bailout for these types of community-led responses.

“And in the long run, programs like this have been shown to save communities money,” she said.

Boyer said the state and cities are already spending the money – but on the police, rather than on programs that could keep people away from addiction and mental health issues.

“New Jersey can do better. New Jersey needs to do better, ”said Boyer. “Let’s put people first, and don’t put police profits and budgets ahead of people. “

Merck

Merck said this morning that it has applied for emergency use authorization for its pill that can help treat people with mild to moderate Covid-19 in the United States.

If approved, it would become the first oral treatment to hit the market and could be a game-changer for governments battling the virus, with existing treatments requiring people to visit a medical center. The move comes after the latest data showed molnupiravir halved the risk of being hospitalized or killed by the virus.

Merck said it was set to seek clearance in other countries “within the next few months.” Notably, the shares of vaccine makers like Pfizer and Moderna were hit when the latest data on the pill was released earlier this month on theories that governments would switch to new types of preventative treatments and drugs.

Notably, U.S. regulators are expected to meet later this month to decide whether they should recommend that vaccines manufactured by Moderna and J&J be used for booster shots. A meeting to discuss the Pfizer vaccine is scheduled for a week later.

You’re here

You’re here held an event at the site of its new factory in Germany over the weekend, where CEO Elon Musk revealed the first vehicle could roll off the production line as early as next month, but warned that the rise in power might take longer than to build the plant itself.

Tesla is hoping to get approval for the new site imminently, with officials to decide by Thursday, but warned it would take time to ramp up production to its target of 5,000 (to “hopefully” 10,000 ) vehicles per day. It has set itself an interim target of reaching volume production before the end of 2022.

Musk also said the company is awaiting the arrival of people from all over Europe, fearing it will not be able to find the talent it needs for the new site.

Southwest Airlines

Southwest Airlines is on the line today after being forced to cancel thousands of flights over the weekend due to bad weather and air traffic control issues.

Data from flightaware.com showed the airline canceled 808 flights – or 28% of all scheduled flights – on Saturday and 1,103 other flights – about 30% of its schedule – on Sunday. “With fewer frequencies between cities in our current schedule, recovery during operational challenges is more difficult and prolonged,” the airline said in an emailed statement to Reuters.

The cancellation rate was considered to be much higher than that of the other airlines involved.

Global payments

The chief executive of Global Payments said he was open to a major acquisition following its $ 21.5 billion deal to buy TSYS two years ago.

I certainly see deals as big as TSYS in our future, ”Jeff Sloan told Reuters. Global Payments is a major player in transactional services for businesses and has decided to strengthen its offering by acquiring TSYS, which processes credit card transactions for banks. Sloan said the industry consolidates as it seeks scale and adapts to the drastic change in online shopping.

The main attraction of any potential deal would be accessing markets where it currently lacks a presence, Sloan said. The CEO added that the company will continue to make targeted acquisitions in the meantime.

Honeywell International

Honeywell International said the business jet industry has “almost completely wiped out the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic” as it raises its outlook for the next decade.

The company said on Sunday it expects 7,400 business jets worth some $ 238 billion to be delivered between 2022 and 2031, up about 1% from its forecast of ‘one year ago. He said manufacturers reported an increase in orders for 2022 and also reported a sharp increase in used aircraft purchase plans, which are 12% ahead of last year. He said the surge in demand for used aircraft coupled with a record available-for-sale inventory “will inevitably lead to additional demand for new business jets.”

“Increased demand for used jets is estimated at over 6,500 units over the next five years, putting pressure on an already record stock and driving demand for new jets,” said Heath Patrick, president of the Americas Aftermarket at Honeywell Aerospace. “The results of our latest operator survey support the continued growth in the use of private jets, as more than 65% of those surveyed predict increased use of business jets in 2022. Despite the current challenges posed by the pandemic , flight hours have recovered and exceeded pre-pandemic levels. The overall health of the business jet market is strong and growth is expected to continue. ‘

Emerson and Aspen technology

Emerson Electric has agreed to merge two of its software businesses with Aspen Technology in an approximately $ 11 billion deal, according to reports in the Wall Street Journal.

The cash and stock deal is expected to value Aspen Technology at around $ 160 per share, according to the report. Shareholders will receive $ 87 in cash and get 0.42 new combined company shares for each share they currently own. This implies a premium of around 27% over the Aspen Technology share price closing on October 6, when Bloomberg first announced the potential deal. The offer is about 13% above the closing share price on Friday.

Emerson would own approximately 55% of the combined business, with Aspen Technology shareholders owning the remainder. It will retain its current name and will be headed by CEO Antonio Pietri. The deal aims to meet growing demand for industrial technology, with Emerson helping make power plants and factories more efficient and Aspen Technology providing software to the natural resource, manufacturing and pharmaceutical industries.

Hasbro

Hasbro announced on Sunday that chief executive officer Brian Goldner is taking time off from his post as he continues to seek medical attention after being treated for cancer in 2014.

Lead Independent Director Rich Stoddart has been appointed Interim CEO with immediate effect. He has experience as a CEO at the marketing execution firm InnerWorkings and at the advertising firm Leo Burnett Worldwide.

“After careful consideration, I decided to take medical leave to focus on my health. I am confident that the Company will be in the capable hands of Rich Stoddart as Interim CEO, our highly experienced management team and the best employees in the company. The future of Hasbro couldn’t be brighter as we continue to boost the Blueprint and build the world’s leading games and entertainment company, ”said Goldner.

Cleveland cliffs

Cleveland-Cliffs said it entered the scrap metal business after agreeing to buy Ferrous Processing and Trading Co for $ 775 million, with no cash or debt.

Ferrous Processing and Trading is one of the largest processors and distributors of premium scrap metal in the United States, accounting for 15% of the domestic premium scrap metal market. The company processes around 3 million tonnes of scrap per year, about half of which is classified as premium grade. It operates 22 facilities primarily located in the Midwest.

“Cleveland-Cliffs is entering the scrap metal business as a major player with the acquisition of a large scrap metal company. More importantly, FPT has a very significant presence in blue chip scrap. With all new flat-rolled FEA capabilities entering our market over the next four years, quality scrap will become increasingly scarce. As the largest supplier of flat-rolled steel in North America, Cleveland-Cliffs is the primary source of steel that generates premium grade scrap at manufacturing facilities, ”said Cleveland-Cliffs.

Analyst recommendations

Eli lilly was upgraded to Buy from Hold by Berenberg, who estimates the company can generate annual sales growth of 10% on average through 2030, more than double the average of its peers.

Starbucks was reclassified as Buy from Hold by Deutsche Bank in hopes that the coffee giant could benefit from surging demand in the United States and sustained growth in China.

ANear years of debate in Germany and beyond, Russian state-backed energy giant Gazprom confirmed last month that it had completed construction of Nord Stream 2, a 760-mile pipeline with the potential to send 55 billion cubic meters of gas under the Baltic Sea to Germany. every year.

Russia is already Europe’s largest gas supplier, but once in service, Nord Stream 2 would provide a significant boost to the 170 billion cubic meters annually that keep the lights on across the continent.

Not hesitating to seize an opportunity in the event of a crisis, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak suggested last week that early approval by German regulators for Nord Stream 2, which is currently expected to take months, could be the response to the soaring gas prices that are troubling European governments. .

The move chilled markets and follows intense pressure from Europe and the International Energy Agency, the world’s energy watchdog, to increase supplies.

In reality, Nord Stream 2 cannot be the answer to the crisis in the short term. At best, Gazprom conceded that it would likely only operate at 10% of its capacity in the remaining months of this year. If Gazprom really wanted to cool the markets, it could reserve additional capacity for gas supply via pipes passing through Poland and Ukraine.

Indeed, there are signs that Russia has increased supply over the past two days, and once Gazprom hits the November deadline to be fully supplied for this winter’s domestic demand, even more. gas should be available to Europeans.

Nord Stream 2’s argument highlights the dilemma Europe faces as it grapples with how to clean up its energy supplies.

Europe is setting itself ambitious goals in the name of the climate emergency, in particular by increasing the share of renewable energies in the EU to 40%. This is where the money is invested.

But as Europe closes its coal mines and readies its wind turbines, there will be a difficult transition period. Germany made this situation even more difficult with its decision to phase out nuclear power after the Fukushima disaster in 2011, leaving it to rely on fossil fuels to bridge the gap to a renewable-powered future. .

Opponents of Nord Stream 2, including the White House, argue that it is part of the Kremlin’s geopolitical strategy. Although apparently a private sector project, it is clearly under the control of Vladimir Putin. The United States argues that regulatory approval will only strengthen Europe’s dependence on Russia and undermine Ukraine, a key Western ally, by rendering its pipelines redundant.

Maybe Putin will try to play politics with gas. But the Kremlin has been reluctant to do so in the past, seeking instead to be a reliable partner. And Russia has one key interest above all, and that is to sell as much gas as possible as quickly as possible.

Putin’s turnaround last week had this economic reality in mind: while he likes to be a nuisance to his neighbors, it is not in his interest to speed up the switch to renewable energy in Europe. The countdown to fossil fuels is ticking and Russia would undermine its finances by accelerating the decarbonization of Europe.

As for Ukraine, there is ample evidence that the transit fees paid by Europeans for gas from its old pipelines have ended up in the pockets of some less than famous figures. And these are old pipelines, prone to leaks and explosions. Nord Stream 2 would be a cheaper and more efficient source of supply. Europe has every interest in helping Ukraine rebuild its economy, but today’s broken model is not necessarily what needs to be preserved.

Some further argue that the growing liquefied natural gas (LNG) market makes pipelines and Nord Stream 2 less relevant. LNG can be shipped all over the world. The developments of the last few days offer a pause for reflection.

Most of the LNG is locked away in long-term contracts, the majority of which is destined for Asia. As China emerged from the global pandemic, it was insatiable to buy the unreserved stock. Brazil worsened the deficit by turning to LNG to generate electricity normally generated by hydroelectric dams.

Putin is not a man with whom Europe wants to do business. But the global energy crisis has given him and his favorite project a powerful negotiating position – a position that could force Europe’s hand.

BA may regret his lack of generosity

Two of the UK’s largest airlines, British Airways and Ryanair, were tried by the Markets and Competition Authority for not breaking the law by refusing to reimburse customers who were prevented by the rules from Covid to take the flights they had booked. But the airlines were far from justified: Only a lack of legal clarity and an uncertain legal battle prompted the CMA to drop its investigation, and it unequivocally stated that the passengers had unfairly lost.

Some may see this as a demonstration of the toothlessness of a CMA, but neither the government nor the airlines come out of the chapter healthy. BA had called the CMA’s investigation – at a time when it was hampered by travel bans and layoffs – “unbelievable”. Ryanair argued more optimistically that it provided the flights and followed the law.

The carriers had offered their most generous terms and conditions to date, reimbursing millions of canceled flights and allowing a free rebooking. Their own schedules were disrupted in the short term by the sudden change in government travel rules. Any fine would have paled next to the billions of airlines lost during the pandemic.

Wider consumer behavior also complicates the picture. Essential international travel was allowed – and those who had to fly accepted the hardships of quarantine. As UK city hotels could attest after a summer of late cancellations, many holidaymakers viewed flexible Covid policies as a risk-free back-up plan.

Many, however, will have been unfairly stung in situations that have escaped insurance policies. For low cost Ryanair, expectations are low. BA, as aggrieved as he is, should be concerned that customers will perceive that he has failed to meet a fairer standard. In the long run, more generous competitors may reap the rewards.

Dave, there is a little problem to save Christmas

He managed to pull the UK’s biggest supermarket out of a hole, and now the government is hoping Dave Lewis can save Christmas. As supply chain czar, the former Tesco boss has been tasked with solving a crisis caused in large part by staff shortages. It started with truck drivers, but now retailers are struggling to recruit warehouse workers, especially those with special skills like forklifts.

After Brexit, many people who came from Europe for seasonal work can find better and more lucrative jobs elsewhere. Meanwhile, the government’s slow and ill-conceived “action” to solve the problem is pushing the industry to come up with creative solutions.

Tesco last week credited its rail freight investment with helping it weather the worst of the supply chain crisis: it plans to increase the number of containers it transports by train by 65,000 per year to 90,000 at Christmas.

The supermarket isn’t the only one trying out new ideas. Last week, John Lewis was the latest company to open a driving academy, with the goal of getting 90 more people behind the wheel of a truck each year.

On a completely different path, Ikea has announced plans to shift production of some furniture from the Far East to Turkey – reducing the distance at which goods will have to be shipped. And Ocado last week invested £ 10million in autonomous vehicle startup Wayve, and will test four vans in London over the next few months (backed by human operators).

Such ideas are, for now, an alternative to a battle for workers that has led to wage increases and big bonuses for certain groups of once underpaid and underrated employees.

In the longer term, however, truck driving in the UK needs to be made much more attractive. When even simple perks like washing facilities and restrooms fall far short of the norm, it’s no surprise that sought-after drivers choose to move elsewhere. Lewis could do worse than look in the bathroom.

Pieter Elbers, managing director of Dutch airline KLM, is also fighting the increases at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. But the 40% increase is considerably lower than that announced by Heathrow, already one of the most expensive airports in the world.

Elbers says Holland-Kayes’ proposals could have serious consequences for the resumption of British aviation more broadly. “In general, aviation will come back, I am very convinced of that. [But] the speed of return will not be exactly the same in different markets.

“Some airports, and Heathrow is no exception, have announced very significant cost increases. Basically they want to recoup the losses of the last two years and say, ‘OK, the airlines, you have to pay them back’. “

He adds, “It could create some differentiation in the speed of recovery. “

Divergent positions on resuming aviation remained the elephant in the room for many Boston executives as they sipped cocktails and bottles of Bud Light at evening social events that lacked the lavish entertainment of the previous years.

Sir Tim Clark, the Briton who has run Emirates airline for nearly two decades, is particularly optimistic. He says Covid “will be part of history” by at least 2023, with travel returning to pre-pandemic standards.

Others are more pessimistic. The consultancy firm Bain & Company believes that it may be necessary to wait until the end of 2025 for pre-pandemic levels to be reached in some parts of the world.

What the bosses can agree on is that airlines will have to cut investments and raise prices to pay off heavily indebted balance sheets. “I think the prices were too low before Covid,” says Spohr. Ryanair chief Michael O’Leary also warned that vacations would be more expensive next year.

As the Conservative Party conference takes place this week more than 3,000 miles away, expat Clark, 71, sums up the mood. “We will have to rebuild,” he said. “But with less.”

West seeks new ways to hold Belarusian dictator Lukashenka to account https://windgefluester.net/west-seeks-new-ways-to-hold-belarusian-dictator-lukashenka-to-account/ https://windgefluester.net/west-seeks-new-ways-to-hold-belarusian-dictator-lukashenka-to-account/#respond Wed, 06 Oct 2021 21:07:12 +0000 https://windgefluester.net/west-seeks-new-ways-to-hold-belarusian-dictator-lukashenka-to-account/ When Alyaksandr Lukashanka’s autocratic regime effectively hijacked a Ryanair flight in May 2021 before forcing it to land in Minsk and abduct two of its passengers, the international consequences were swift.

When Alyaksandr Lukashanka’s autocratic regime effectively hijacked a Ryanair flight in May 2021 before forcing it to land in Minsk and abduct two of its passengers, the international consequences were swift.

The European Union has banned Belarusian airlines from its airspace and airports, while also banning European carriers from flying over Belarusian airspace. Meanwhile, the United States has banned the sale of airline tickets to and from Belarus.

Five months after Lukashenka’s act of air piracy, calls for even more severe measures are being heard. Candidate of US President Joe Biden for Representative to the United Nations Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) call that Belarus be suspended from this body which regulates international aviation safety.

In his testimony before the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, CB “Sully” Sullenberger, a former airline pilot who gained international fame in 2009 when he safely landed an Airbus A320 on the Hudson River in New York after hit a flock of geese, said to be taken “on Belarus.

Specifically, he noted that ICAO can temporarily suppress a state’s right to vote for violating international standards and said, “we should pull all the levers necessary to hold accountable those responsible for this act.”

Noting that the forced landing of Ryanair flight 4978 and the arrest of Belarusian dissident journalist Raman Pratasevich “showed a blatant disregard for international aviation safety and security standards,” Sullenberger said, ICAO “must ensure that these standards are respected “. He also said he would ask for a full timeline of the incident.

Suspension of Belarusian voting rights would require a majority vote of the 193 members of the ICAO Assembly. And while such an outcome would be far from guaranteed, by raising the question, Sullenberger shifts the discussion on Belarus to important new territory.

Over the past year, the Lukashenka regime has violated international standards with astonishing regularity. In addition to de facto embezzlement of Ryanair flight 4978, the Belarusian dictator is accused of ordering the torture of opposition figures and national critics, of causing a migrant crisis on his country’s borders with Lithuania, Latvia and Poland and threaten to disrupt vital supply chains between Europe and Asia.

While the European Union, the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States have all imposed multiple rounds of sanctions, Belarus remains a member in good standing of international organizations and has largely evaded multilateral responsibility.

This may be about to change. In addition to Sullenberger’s call to suspend Belarusian voting rights in ICAO, there are also growing demands in Europe for Lukashenka to face an international tribunal.

On October 5, two members of the European Parliament, former Lithuanian Prime Minister Andrius Kubilius and German Green MP Sergey Lagodinsky, call for Loukachenka will be brought before the International Court of Justice for torture. The lawmakers’ request is expected to be included in a resolution that the European Parliament is due to vote on on October 7. Deutsche Welle reported.

The recent move on both sides of the Atlantic to hold the Lukashanka regime accountable beyond the existing sanctions measures imposed on Belarus is an encouraging sign.

Such efforts, however, will be incomplete until steps are also taken to comprehensively target the Russian facilitators of the autocratic Belarusian leader. These include not only Vladimir Putin’s regime, but also the Russian oligarchs and Kremlin-linked companies that supported Lukashenka.

The European Union has taken an important step in this direction by sanctioning the Russian businessman Mikhail Gutseriev, the largest foreign investor in Belarus. But other Russian facilitators have escaped the consequences and continue to enjoy the veneer of international respectability.

A key figure is German Gref, the powerful CEO of Sberbank, Russia’s largest bank. Gref is widely regarded as Gutseriyev’s main political patron among the Russian elite and a long-time ally of Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin. He owns would have supported Lukashenka and supervised major investment projects in Belarusian real estate sector worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Vladislav Inozemtsev, Senior Associate of the Russia and Eurasia Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, noted that while Gref is generally regarded in Western circles as a liberal banker, “he is in fact perhaps Lukashenka’s most prominent lobbyist in the Kremlin”.

Sullenberger’s call to suspend Belarusian voting rights in ICAO, demand by EU lawmakers for Lukashenka to be brought before an international tribunal, and measures to sanction Russian facilitators of the Belarusian regime are all part of the same whole .

For too long, the West and the international community have allowed autocratic regimes like Lukashenka’s and Putin’s to have it both ways, reaping the benefits of international laws, rules and standards even if they brazenly flout them. It’s time to hold these autocrats accountable.
