19:26 EDTUALUnited's pilot union says adamantly opposed to fuel monitoring
In a letter to United pilots, United Master Executive Council chairman Jay Heppner states, "Let me be very clear at the onset: The UAL MEC policy manual clearly states that we 'deem any fuel monitoring program using identified pilot information as promoting unsafe practices such as competitive flying.' While we 'endorse the most conservative fuel load, whether it is the dispatcher's fuel or the captain's fuel,' we fully support the captain's authority to plan his fuel load without undue influence from any monitoring program. Such programs have been used in the past to coerce captains to not add fuel when, in their judgment, they may have felt it prudent to do so. The tracking and scoring of captain's fuel loads can also lead to other issues; not the least of which is a degradation to safety and captain's authority. Fuel tracking can also lead to pilot pushing, intimidation and harassment by management in order to force compliance with 'fuel policy.' ALPA has worked tirelessly to ensure all captains have the tools necessary to make the safest and most appropriate decisions regarding fuel loads and all other decisions pertaining to every aspect of the preflight planning process. We are not necessarily opposed to a company fuel policy, but we are adamantly opposed to 'fuel tracking,' 'fuel monitoring' and 'competitive flying.'" Reference Link

20:08 EDTUAL, AALChinese president visits U.S. amid cybersecurity, copyright worries
As part of his first official U.S. visit, Chinese president Xi Jinping held a meeting with American business leaders on Wednesday to address concerns of copyright infringement and cybersecurity, among numerous topics. In attendance were corporate giants from both nations, including Microsoft (MSFT), Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN), Cisco (CSCO), Alibaba (BABA), Tencent (TCEHY), and Baidu (BIDU), according to media reports. COPYRIGHT CONCERNS: Responding to oft-cited concerns of copyright infringement by Chinese companies, Xi said China will "stand firm to protect" the intellectual property rights of American companies, according to Wall Street Journal coverage of the event. Note that in late 2014, China began establishing specialized courts to deliberate on intellectual property rights cases, and Xi commented Wednesday that "the newly established IPR courts are working smoothly. This means there will be much stronger IPR protection which will serve the interests of foreign businesses as well as Chinese companies." Chinese consumer electronics company Xiaomi is perhaps the most talked-about firm when it comes to the matter, with media outlets frequently criticizing its alleged "copying" of Apple design sensibilities. In mid-July, Xiaomi VP of global operations Hugo Barra told Bloomberg that the company is preparing to enter U.S. markets, though he cautioned that the launch could be "much more" than a year away as it seeks to build up its patent portfolio. CYBERSECURITY TENSIONS: Wednesday's meeting comes in the wake of numerous high-profile "hack attacks," with Sony (SNE), American Airlines (AAL), Anthem (ANTM), United Airlines (UAL), and Target (TGT) all reporting digital security breaches in recent years. Xi has consistently denied the involvement of state-backed hackers, but tensions have nevertheless arisen as cybersecurity firms such as FireEye (FEYE) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) backtrace connections to the country. Cybersecurity intrusions originating from China have recently slowed ahead of Xi's visit, according to Reuters, with Kevin Mandia of security firm Mandiant telling the publication, "In my gut, I feel like the Chinese and the U.S. over the next couple of years are going to figure this out."

18:42 EDTDLAKYLufthansa to offer high-speed internet on short, medium haul flights
Lufthansa (DLAKY) announced that, from early summer 2016, the company "will be the first network airline in Europe to offer broadband on board its short and medium-haul flights." The new service from Lufthansa and its technology partner Inmarsat (IMASF) is based on the "most modern" broadband satellite technology from Inmarsat's Global Xpress network, said the companies. Telephone calls on board, however, will still not be allowed due to what Lufthansa called "customer preference." Additionally, Lufthansa Systems and Lufthansa Technik are planning a long-term global partnership in order to also be able to offer other airlines an on-board IT platform termed BoardConnect, with broadband Internet access that can be used for a number of different purposes. Lufthansa is also committing to a flight trial program for a new hybrid network being developed for Europe, combining an S-band satellite from Inmarsat with a complementary LTE ground network being provided by Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY). From 2017 onwards, Lufthansa will commence a flight trial program of the new technology. Reference Link
