Asiana scraps plan to sue US TV station

Asiana Airlines won’t be suing Oakland TV station KTVU after all.

“Asiana Airlines has decided not to proceed with the case since KTVU has issued a formal apology and in order for us to focus all our efforts on managing the aftermath of the accident,” the South Korean company said in a statement.

L.A. to San Fran in 30 minutes? Can you say hyperloop?

SpaceX founder Elon Musk tweeted of an invention that can transport people from Los Angeles to San Francisco faster than the train, plane, boat or car.

In case you missed it, Musk first started talking about the Hyperloop last summer, describing it as a “cross between a Concorde, a rail gun and an air hockey table,” and suggesting that a sun-powered tube could whisk vehicles between San Francisco and Los Angeles in half an hour.

Heathrow submits ‘quicker, cheaper’ third runway plans

London Heathrow is submitting plans to add a third runway cheaper and quicker than rival proposals.

Heathrow said it was submitting three options which propose a third runway being placed to the north, north west or south west of the existing airport.

Either option would deliver extra capacity by 2025-29 for GBP£14 billion – GBP£18 billion (USD$21 billion – USD$27 billion), and would be cheaper and quicker to build than rival hub options being proposed by Johnson and Stansted Airport, Heathrow said.
