Nearly half a century after its first flight from Paris to New York in the 1970s, the aircraft affectionately known as the Jumbo Jet will bid an emotional farewell to the Boeing 747 with a tribute flight.
On December 8th, Boeing rolled-out the new 737 MAX aircraft. It had been anticipated for a while, and was seen as an imperative product release for Boeing to come up with an alternative to the Airbus A320neo as quickly as possible. Following the legacy of earlier Boeing 737 versions, it seems that the MAX will be incredibly popular among airlines, as Boeing has received almost 3,000 orders from 60 different customers around the world. The entire MAX family will consist of four variations, including the 737 MAX 7, MAX 8, MAX 9, and MAX 200.
Glassdoor recently shared some interesting facts about office space interiors and how they influence the rankings of the best places to work. No surprise that an aviation organization isn’t listed in the top 10.
While beige office walls may help keep some focused on the work at hand, for others it’s often seen as a blank canvas for fostering creativity. Whether it’s halls decorated like the New York City subway system or a floor-to-ceiling spiraling slide, these 10 companies show how to use and design office space in a whole new way.

Here are the top 10 airports in Europe based on current ratings, as reported by a fellow professional blogger.
- London Heathrow Airport
- Frankfurt Airport
- Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport
- Amsterdam Airport
- Gatwick Airport
- Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport
- Madrid Barajas Airport
- Paris Orly Airport
- Munich Airport
- Zurich Airport
I am not too surprised by the rankings, but I did expect Munich airport and Paris Orly to feature a bit higher up in the rankings. Conversely, I am not sure about the position of Paris CDG.
I’ve been to the Helsinki Vantaa airport also, and according to me it deserves special mention. It is continuing to be the focal point of airport development in Europe, a project many can learn from.
