The eight episode of Season 3, and the last official episode of the year, kicks off with Vinay and Enrique welcoming Henry Harteveldt, President of the Atmosphere Research Group about United Airlines and its new CEO, Scott Kirby, who will be replacing Oscar Munoz in May 2020. Harteveldt weighs in on Kirby's experience as a top airline executive, all the way since his tenure at America West, US Airways, American Airlines, and now United Airlines. Later on, our hosts also analyze United's recent order for 50 Airbus A321XLRs, which will replace the oldest Boeing 757s in its fleet.

The second topic covers the TWA Hotel and its current underperformance, reporting a ~30% load factor. Harteveldt, a former TWA alumn, shares his take on the hotel's current state and what he thinks should be done to make it a profitable and successful venture.

The second topic covers the US Department of Justice (DOJ) charging Allen Onyema, the Chairman and Founder of Nigerian carrier, Air Peace, with bank fraud and money laundering.
According to the DOJ, Onyema has moved of more than $20 million from various foreign accounts through American bank accounts to pay for living expenses, luxury cars, and other high-priced goods. The Nigerian carrier ordered 10 Boeing 737 MAX 10 worth $1.17 billion last year.
