>China to brace for holiday rush
双节临近航空需求旺盛
China's air travel sector has recovered significantly and is expected to brace for a holiday travel rush as National Day and Mid-Autumn Festival are around the corner, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said on Tuesday.
中国民航局9月15日称,航空旅游业已大幅复苏,随着国庆节和中秋节的临近,预计将迎来假日旅游高峰。
Jin Junhao, deputy director of the administration's transportation department, said the country will lift restrictions on the limit of weekly flights on 49 domestic air routes, giving carriers more flexibility to operate passenger flights involving airports in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, among other busy airports.
民航局运输司副司长靳军号表示,我国将放开49条国内航线每周最大航班量限制,使航空公司获得更大的灵活性运营北京、上海、广东广州等城市繁忙机场的客运航班。
The regulator also eased access for airlines to operate regional flights linking smaller airports with major hubs in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, to help airlines tap into potential markets, as well as promote the recovery of small and medium-sized airports, he said.
民航局还放宽了涉及"北上广"三大机场支线航线准入限制,以帮助航空公司开拓潜在市场,推动中小型机场的复苏。
According to online travel agency Tongcheng-eLong, flight ticket prices have seen a significant increase ahead of the holiday, and the average ticket price of round trips is close to what it was in the same period last year.

>Global perception of US falls
美国声誉创近20年新低
The reputation of the US among some allies has fallen to its lowest point in nearly two decades, according to a global survey.

Positive views of the US have fallen to a median of 34% across the countries surveyed, and only 16% of the respondents have confidence in US President Donald Trump.

In only one country surveyed - South Korea - did a majority of the public view the US favorably.

Only a quarter of Germans and less than a third of French men and women view the US favorably.

An overwhelming majority - 84% - said the US has handled coronavirus badly.
绝大多数受访者(84%)认为美国的新冠疫情应对很糟糕。
Dr Richard Wike, a director of the Pew survey, said: "What we've seen in our polling over the past few years is that many people around the world see the US stepping away from a leadership position in world affairs, and that's had a negative impact on what they think of the country."
皮尤调查主管理查德•威克博士说:"我们在过去几年的调查中看到,全球许多人都看到美国正在逐渐脱离在世界事务中的领导地位,这对他们对美国的看法产生了负面影响。"

>Boeing and FAA slammed for crashes
报告揭露波音事故根源
Numerous design, management and regulatory failures during the development of the 737 Max preceded the "preventable death" of 346 people in two crashes of the Boeing jetliner, according to a congressional report released Wednesday.
根据美国国会9月16日发布的一份报告,由于波音公司737 Max客机的开发过程中出现了多个设计、管理和监管方面的失误,导致了两起坠机事件的发生,造成346人死亡。报告称,这些人的死亡"本可避免"。
The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure's 238-page report, painted a Boeing that prioritized profits over safety as the manufacturer raced to finish the plane to compete with rival Airbus.
这份长达238页的报告由美国众议院下属运输和基础设施委员会发布,报告称,波音为了和竞争对手空客抢单,急于推出737 Max飞机,将利润置于安全问题之上。
The report said concerns about the aircraft weren't sufficiently addressed to spur design changes.
报告称,对于这款机型的担忧没有得到足够的重视,飞机设计上的问题未得到修正。
The report also found the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) failed to protect the traveling public, in part because of "excessive" delegation of certification work to Boeing.
报告还认为,美国联邦航空管理局未能保护出行公众,部分原因是其将认证工作"过度"委托给了波音公司。
The report comes as regulators are in the final stretch of work to recertify the planes.
这份报告发布之际,监管机构对737 Max飞机的重新认证正处于最后阶段。
The 737 Max has been grounded worldwide since March 2019.
自2019年3月以来,这款机型一直在全球范围内处于停飞状态。
