Boeing and Airbus Meet New Competition: Their Own Used Planes
  + stars: | 2021-06-14 | by ( Jon Sindreu | ) www.wsj.com sentiment -0.93   time to read: +1 min
Vaccination campaigns are finally giving airlines the visibility they need to buy jets again. This is of particular relief to Boeing , which back in July had about 100 of its 737 MAX planes in storage without an owner. Irish low-cost carrier Ryanair , which is known for scooping up cheap planes at moments of crisis, ordered 75 units last December. The MAX’s tarnished reputation gives Boeing a particular reason to prioritize sales over margins. But a broader factor also is at play, including for European manufacturer Airbus : It is extremely cheap to buy their planes—particularly bigger models—in the secondhand market.

Starbucks Stadium? Coffee chain applies for naming rights
  + stars: | 2021-06-11 | by ( Jonathan Stempel | ) www.reuters.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +1 min
(Reuters) -Starbucks Corp has applied with the U.S. trademark office for the right to use its name on a sports stadium or training facility. Naming rights agreements often run for decades and can cost several or tens of millions of dollars annually. That building will house the Seattle Kraken expansion team in the National Hockey League, and the Seattle Storm of the Women’s National Basketball Association. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office plans by early September to assign a lawyer to review Starbucks’ application. If the office has no objection, Starbucks will have six months to show it is using its mark in commerce.

REUTERS/Mike BlakeArcher Aviation unveiled its first electric flying taxi “Maker” in a Tesla-style debut on Thursday as an increasing number of investors and aviation companies pile into the hot but yet-to-be-approved urban air mobility space. "Our real goal is to make a mass market transportation solution in and around cities," Adcock said. Asked about the approval process, the FAA said: "The FAA can certify new technologies such as eVTOLs through its existing regulations. Archer last week asked a California court to dismiss the lawsuit and courtersued Wisk for "false statements" regarding a separate criminal probe.

American Airlines will invest $25 million in Vertical Aerospace for up to 250 electric vertical takeoff and land aircraft. More airlines are expected to invest in eVTOLs as more firms develop the new type of aircraft. American Airlines is making an investment in the future of aviation with a $1 billion pre-order for a new type of aircraft to fly over congested cities. EVTOLs are helicopter-like electric aircraft that aim to offer intra-city urban air mobility services and offer an alternative to driving. American's $1 billion pre-order for up to 250 aircraft and options for 100 more will only see the airline invest $25 million in the company at present.

A United Airlines passenger jet takes off with New York City as a backdrop, at Newark Liberty International Airport, New Jersey, U.S. December 6, 2019. The fate of U.S. airline workers has shifted dramatically in the three months since the industry won a third payroll support package in March. As more Americans receive COVID-19 vaccines, travel demand has surged, driving the need for more workers. "This announcement makes it clear: the Payroll Support Program (PSP) worked," said Sara Nelson, president of AFA International representing nearly 50,000 flight attendants at 17 airlines including United. "Given the current outlook for the future of United, we continue to move closer to full frontline staffing levels to support our operation," a United spokesperson said.

United was the first commercial airline to fly the first FDA-authorized Covid vaccines to the U.S.United Airlines told more than 40,000 employees on Friday that their jobs are safe when federal Covid-19 aid for the sector expires this fall thanks to a rebound in travel demand. The recovery in bookings, led largely by U.S. leisure travelers, has encouraged airlines, including United, American, Delta and Spirit, to set plans to resume hiring pilots. "This news provides great relief to many of our flying partners who were facing an uncertain future." "Given the current outlook for the future of United, we continue to move closer to full frontline staffing levels to support our operation." United told storekeepers, who work with mechanics, that the airline expects to offer a "sufficient" number of permanent positions before the aid expires on Oct. 1.

(Reuters) - DataRobot is in advanced discussions to raise fresh capital of about $500 million in a funding round that could value the machine learning startup at more than $7 billion, according to people familiar with the matter. The COVID-19 pandemic, which has pushed people to work remotely, has accelerated the use of data tools provided by companies such as DataRobot. DataRobot also hired a new chief financial officer, Damon Fletcher, from data visualization software company Tableau as it prepares for a public listing, the sources said.

REUTERS/Johanna Geron/File PhotoLONDON (Reuters) - Supersonic jets do not have a place in the future, Willie Walsh, the former boss of British Airways, said, adding that he would not buy them if he still ran an airline as he dismissed a plan by United Airlines to bring them back. Supersonic passenger travel died out with the retirement of Concorde in 2003, but United said earlier in June it agreed to buy 15 ultra-fast jets from Boom Supersonic. “We’ll watch with interest but no, I wouldn’t be buying it,” Walsh told an airlines conference on Thursday. “I’m not convinced that supersonic transport is the right move going forward.”Walsh, who is now director general of global airlines body IATA, took the helm at BA a year before Concorde was grounded.

(For a live blog on the U.S. stock market, click or type LIVE/ in a news window.) The Labor Department said its consumer price index increased 0.6% last month after surging 0.8% in April. The labor market and inflation are two key factors for the Fed to consider tightening, and while inflation has risen, recent payrolls data was underwhelming. A separate report on Thursday from the Labor Department showed the number of Americans filing for jobless claims fell less than expected last week. Focus was also on a major infrastructure spending bill, talks over which hit a deadlock in the Senate.

In March, the airline had ordered 25 new Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, as it prepares to replace aging jets and meet post-pandemic demand growth. Reuters last month reported that Boeing had drawn up preliminary plans for a fresh sprint in 737 MAX output to as many as 42 jets a month in fall 2022. read moreOur Standards: The Thomson Reuters Trust Principles.
