Atlanta airport is the world's busiest

  Atlanta airport is the world's busiest With 104 million passengers in 2017, Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, was the world's busiest airport in 2017 according to a report from the Airports Council International (ACI). The ACI's ranking of the world's busiest airports is based on total passenger traffic in 2017. China's Beijing airport takes second place, with 96 million passengers, and Dubai airport in the UAE comes third, with 88 million passengers.

As the world' s first hypersonic airliner, the sleek, futuristic-looking craft would be capable of flying five times the speed of sound. At that speed — Mach 5 in aviation parlance — it would be possible to travel from New York City to London in about two hours instead of the eight hours the trip takes on

Compared to conventional commercial flights today, that would cut flying time by about five hours.

The aerospace company offered an early look of the passenger-carrying hypersonic concept at the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics conference in Atlanta this week. 

But it takes time to engineer an aircraft capable of traveling at Mach 5 --  five times the speed of sound or 3,800 miles (6,174 km) an hour -- that's safe enough for human travel. 

Alaska Airlines Announces New Emotional Support Animal Policy

  Alaska Airlines Announces New Emotional Support Animal Policy The new rules apply to those who purchase tickets on or after May 1.Starting with passengers who purchase tickets on or after May 1, all travelers flying Alaska with emotional support animals must provide health and behavioral documents and a signed form from a doctor at least 48 hours in advance of their departure.

Boeing says the jet could get you anywhere in the world in just one to three hours . "[W]e'd see something like this first before a passenger hypersonic concept," Jackson said. Musk said at a space conference last year it could take passengers from New York to Shanghai in just half an hour .

Boeing says the first passenger -carrying hypersonic plane could be ready to fly in 20 to 30 years. Boeing . At that speed — Mach 5 in aviation parlance — it would be possible to travel from New York City to London in about two hours instead of the eight hours the trip takes on a

Boeing says it will be another 20 to 30 years before a hypersonic passenger vehicle will be airborne. 

By comparison, the retired Concorde was a supersonic aircraft that traveled at Mach 2, twice the speed of sound. A flight from New York to London took less than four hours. 

Last year, Boston-based group Spike Aerospace completed a round of test flights on a prototype aircraft that will eventually be able to reach cruising altitudes of Mach 1.6, ferrying passengers between New York and Tokyo in six to seven hours. 

Spike Aerospace says they hope to launch the commercial supersonic aircraft by 2023. 

Upset Passengers Block Another Flight En Route to 29-Hour Delay .
Tensions were high at France's Bordeaux Airport over the weekend.According to The Local, passengers scheduled to fly from Bordeaux to the Spanish island of Mallorca Saturday morning were delayed a mind-boggling 29 hours due to a technical issue with an aircraft.
