Which LATAM Planes Have New Business Class?

In 2018, South American mega-airline LATAM announced it would spend $400 million updating the interiors of its fleet. To me the most exciting aspect of this was the introduction of a new business class product, given that the carrier’s offering has historically been pretty lackluster.

It has now been roughly four years since LATAM announced its cabin retrofit project, so I wanted to take an updated look at how the airline is doing with this, especially since a lot has changed since then — LATAM has gone through bankruptcy, LATAM has retired all of its Airbus A350s, etc.

LATAM’s new business class seats

LATAM’s new business class product consists of Vantage XL seats, similar to what you’ll find on RwandAir, Qantas, and SAS, among other airlines. These are fully flat staggered seats with direct aisle access and 18″ personal televisions, so it represents a huge improvement to the passenger experience.

New American Airlines Business Class Seats: What We Know

In the next couple of years, American Airlines is expected to debut two new kinds of business class seats. While there aren’t any new updates (at least not that I’ve heard), I thought it would be fun to take an updated look at what we should expect, and when we should expect it.

American’s new Boeing 787 business class (2023)

American Airlines plans to introduce a new Boeing 787 business class product as of 2023. American already has 48 Boeing 787s in its fleet, with a further 41 Boeing 787s on order. The airline is currently taking delivery of Boeing 787-8s, though starting in 2023, the airline should start taking delivery of its 30 remaining Boeing 787-9 orders.

We’re expecting American to debut a new business class product on these Boeing 787-9s. Some of these 787-9s are expected to be in an uber-premium configuration, featuring just 244 seats. This will

These States’ Workers Would Pay Most Under Biden’s New Business Tax

Where will President Joe Biden and congressional Democrats get the money to finance their large expansion of subsidies for green energy and extension of Obamacare subsidies for the upper middle class?

The simple answer is: “From hardworking taxpayers.”

Taxpayers across the income spectrum should expect they will ultimately pay for the left’s deceptively named Inflation Reduction Act.

But the new taxes would fall more heavily across specific industries and parts of the country. The largest tax in the bill, the new “book minimum tax,” accounts for $222 billion of the more than half a trillion dollars of expected new tax collections. The book minimum tax would hit manufacturing disproportionately.

According to recent government estimates by the Joint Committee on Taxation, manufacturing would bear 49.7% of the book minimum tax, despite accounting for only about 11% of the economy.

More specifically, the nonpartisan committee estimated that 16.1% of the tax would

NEW BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT: Mexican restaurant, tack shop join local lineup | News

A few new businesses have opened their doors in Tahlequah this summer, including a tack shop and a Mexican restaurant.

Situated at the south end of town, horse tack is the main fare of CC’z All Things Western. Owner Shawne Collins said she saw a need for these types of supplies and acted on it.

“I decided to open CC’z because I was having to drive five hours to the tack shop I used to use when I lived in Arkansas just to get quality big-item tack,’ said Collins.

Collins said her store sells 1st Phorm supplements as well.

Employee Andrea Serrano said the CC’z opened June 11 and has been expanding its selection “slowly,” adding things like boots and clothes.

“As soon as the weather cools down, [Collins] wants to gather musicians and have singings on the deck,” said Serrano. “She wants an atmosphere where people can just hang

Premarket stocks: New business taxes are coming. Wall Street isn’t worried

“Business Roundtable opposes the ‘Inflation Reduction Act,’ which, among other things, includes tax provisions that would undermine American economic growth and competitiveness,” the group said in a statement shortly before the measure was passed by the Senate.

But analyzes by Wall Street institutions published over the past week found that the impact on corporate earnings would likely be limited, though some sectors could be more affected than others.

Breaking it down: The two provisions in focus are a 15% minimum corporate tax and a 1% tax on stock buybacks, which would help pay for climate investments.

The Business Roundtable claimed the minimum tax, in particular, would “suppress domestic investment when increased investment is needed to spur a strong recovery.”

Strategists at Citi said their “general view is that higher taxes are an economic activity dampener.” Yet once they dug into which S&P 500 firms would be affected by the new

Former paratrooper launches new business making tactical equipment

This story was originally published in the Fayetteville Observer.

FAYETTEVILLE, NC — From a young age, Chris Cruz had a bit of an entrepreneurial spirit.

He sold chocolate bars in elementary school. In middle school, he’d bring Capri Suns to sell to classmates for $1.

“I guess I kind of always wanted to be my own boss,” said Cruz, who medically separated from the Army at Fort Bragg last month.

The path to becoming his own boss continued with joining the Army — something he knew he wanted to be in since he was 5.

“I was born in Guam, before moving to Kentucky, and most people from Guam pretty much joined the military to get off the island,” he said. “But I joined for the service, too. Most of my family has been military.”

Cruz’s time in the Army led him to create his business, Anubis Design Groupin
