There are a lot of Russian immigrants in the USA and EU, despite everything you said.
And I’d take Trump for a few years over a politician that won’t let go of power ever any day. In many ways, Trump has demonstrated just how strong US institutions and the rule of law really are.
Russia is a weak developing country who has big problems at home to fix. They should take care of themselves instead of sticking their noses elsewhere.

Dynamic pricing is extremely important to industries with high fixed costs like airlines, hotels, trains, freight, etc. Take a look at the price of refundable fares.

Embraer faced a 22.9% import tariff on ERJ-145 aircraft in the early 2000s, according to a research paper I found. They even build 4 ERJs that were never delivered to China because of the tariffs.

Out of curiosity, what was the previous import tariff in place in China on business aircraft like the affected Gulfstream model? Anyone know?

Generally pets are treated as property. This case appears to be nothing more than Delta defending its limited liability contract, not unlike the limited liability they accept for damaged luggage.

No way was DL really gonna take delivery on those unreliable E190 wrecks from AC who didn’t want them. It was part of a Boe8ng deal BEFORE the 737 deal.
Of course, it was. Boeing doesn’t even produce a competitive product to the C-Series. In any case, they were offering a worse product at a highly discounted price. I think it’s good business for the US consumer to benefit from Canadians subsidizing their planes. Whether it’s good for Canadians is a...Jump to post

Scope clauses used to limit aircraft to 50 seats. Then they were changed to 76.

Until the mega-hubs of the world break with the landing fee structure based on aircraft weight, VLA aircraft will be at a disadvantage.
Landing fees for high demand airports should be based on demand for a particular time slot, not aircraft size/weight.
