Emirates plans to swap Boeing 777X for Dreamliner

The head of Emirates says they’ll refuse delivery of new 777X aircraft if Boeing falls short of contract performance agreements

Emirates says they’ll refuse delivery of new aircraft from Boeing if they’re not up to scratch. The middle eastern carrier sent a stern warning to the US company over failure to meet contract performance agreements.

In an interview, President Tim Clark says he had not received any performance details of the jet’s engines so far. This is even though test flights began in 2020.

The influential industry veteran has raised concerns that Boeing had a recent history of over-promising and underdelivering.

The company also failed to meet promises about the performance of new jets, including the 737 MAX and 787 Dreamliner.

Emirates plans to swap Boeing 777X for Dreamliner

This comes after the chairman of Emirates said the company is in discussions with Boeing about changing aircraft.

Emirates plans to swap its 126 Boeing 777-X jets for smaller 787 Dreamliners as part of a sweeping review.

Demand for jumbo jets slumps following pandemic

This also comes at a time where the demand for international travel is falling due to COVID-19.

Emirate’s Chief Operating Officer Adel Al Redha said the company prefers to take the smaller Dreamliner sooner rather than later as it “offers better seat capacity”.

Germany recalls Tesla models due to emergency fault

Tesla is in the spotlight again, with Germany’s road traffic agency recalling models Y and 3 due to a fault in the automatic emergency call system

It’s a fault that could possibly impact around 59,000 vehicles globally.

Germany’s watchdog says a software flaw is causing a breakdown of the e-Call, a system designed to alert authorities after a serious accident.

The glitch follows the company delivered almost 18 per cent fewer electric vehicles in the second quarter than in the previous.

This is largely due to China’s Covid-19-related shutdowns and the ongoing supply chain crunch.

Meanwhile, CEO Elon Musk says Tesla’s new factories in both Texas and Berlin are “losing billions of dollars”.

If you’re lucky to be heading abroad this summer, a visit to the famous canals in Venice, Italy might be on your itinerary, but beware of new fees to come.

Venice will charge most of its visitors an entry fee from next year as it tries to tackle overcrowding.

The city’s tourism chief says Venice are pioneers and will be the first city in the world to apply a measure that could be revolutionary.

From mid January next year, day-trippers must book their visit online before travelling.

They will pay a basic fee of 3 euro, which will rise to 10 euro at peak times.

Tourism is bouncing back in Venice after the pandemic with daily visitors again often outnumbering the 50-thousand residents of the city centre.

The scheme will be closely watched by other popular tourist destinations, overwhelmed with travellers around the world.

The number of pubs in England and Wales is continuing to fall, hitting its lowest level on record this year

After struggling through Covid the industry now faced soaring prices and higher energy costs, it warned.

There were just under 40-thousand pubs in June, down by 7,000 in the past decade, according to new research.

In fact, thousands of pubs have closed as younger people drink less, supermarkets sell cheaper alcohol and the industry complains of being too heavily taxed.

Pubs which had “disappeared” from the communities they once served had either been demolished or converted for other purposes, meaning that they were “lost forever”.
