European Commission clears the acquisition of control over Avolon by ORIX Aviation Systems and Bohai
The European Commission has approved, under the EU Merger Regulation, the acquisition of joint control over Avolon by ORIX Aviation Systems ("OAS"), both of Ireland and by Bohai of China. Avolon is a subsidiary of Bohai and is active in aircraft leasing services. OAS is an investor aircraft and asset manager. It belongs to ORIX Corporation, a Japanese financial services group with a diverse portfolio of financial services. Bohai is a leasing group, which belongs to HNA Group, a Chinese conglomerate encompassing core divisions of aviation, holdings, capital, tourism and logistics. The Commission concluded that the proposed acquisition would raise no competition concerns as the companies' shares of the markets in which Avolon is active would remain limited. The transaction was examined under the simplified merger review procedure. More information is available on the Commission's competition website, in the public case register under the case number M.9103.

Rejected take-off by a small plane and stuck on the rwy due to some technical issue. Problem solved and rwy open again. Was closed for half an hour max., only 1 training flight had to hold for a while, so almost no operational impact. The TUIFly E190 luckily landed just before the troublesome take off attempt.

So, a standard missed approach on a Qantas (note the lack of the letter U) flight is now World News?
Strange to not see every major airport mentioned on ABC’s World News feed every single day.

ABC wasn’t even able to get the name of the airline correct, if you check their tweet.
They may have changed it by now, I can’t be arsed to check, but it does paint a picture about them.

Ah, sorry, I read you the other way around. "sic!" is the usual expression, in such a case :)
But good to see I am not the only one to watch language and spelling with a critical eye...
And yes, we all know how reliable the media are, these days. Sad, very sad.

Well why not... If there are never any failures&incidents in your company, no (human) resource problems at all, no organisational problems, no budget problems and you are heavily involved in marketing and name-branding, why should you not invest time and money to make a name change! It's a matter of knowing your priorities! :roll:
