Yahoo Industry news about airline business was changed

Fri Apr 07, 2017 1:55 pm

Ok, I know it's Yahoo, however I did like them for there Finance Industry news. If anyone else uses this have you noticed how they have ruined it the past couple days with a new format. See link below:

Not happy about it either! >_<

I recall a few years ago when they got rid of it, entirely!

Yes, it's terrible, but they need more space for fake news ads between the articles.

I think the hackers trying to steal all of Yahoo's data could probably run the website better than Yahoo does. They should just let the hackers run it.

I think they did it to be consistent with mobile platform, but it sucks.

Anyone know of a good site to get press releases? I used to use the old Yahoo Airline News site (http://biz.yahoo.com/n/y/y0002.html). The new site is nothing but regurgitated articles from other sources.

Yahoo still exists? I remember them from 1998.
The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word.
There is no 787-800, nor 787-900 or 747-800. It's 787-8, 787-9, and 747-8.
A321neoLR is also unnecessary. It's simply A321LR.
Airplanes don't have isles, they have aisles.

I use Yahoo for 99% of my searches. It'll find the same thing as Google.

What happened to Yahoo Airline/Aviation news

Fri Apr 07, 2017 5:04 pm

I have been reading topics on Yahoo Airline/Aviation news for years at https://biz.yahoo.com/n/y/y0002.html, and for the last few days, it has gone to a saved screeners site. Any idea what has happened, hope Yahoo hasn't shut it down completely as part of the reorganized company. Thanks for any input.

Yahoo is going away due to the Verizon acquisition, so it makes sense the site is probably gone. I'm not sure what comparable site there is for the same kind of info.

In another thread there was talk of a changed format.

See: http://finance.yahoo.com/industry/major_airlines

I hope this is what you are looking for.

The screener is not the same, the old page used to show only official press releases from airlines and aviation companies. If http://finance.yahoo.com/industry/major_airlines is the replacement than this is another reason their CEO is clueless.

Not correct. The Yahoo brand is remaining under a new Verizon holding company called Oath. Brands in Oath include AOL, Huffington Post among others.

Another way to make money - insert adverts between content. Verizon needs the money to pay for Yahoo.

That 4.5B is a pittance compared to the 130B Verizon spent just a couple of years ago.

Thanks for the tip. I tried the RSS feed at work and it was running into firewall problems. This should do it.

Seriously, I had used the Yahoo airline industry news site for 15-20 years. It was the ONLY place on the web where you could read factual news releases all in one place. Thanks for the workaround there. Anyone have other good airline news sites? Not like airways magazine site or anything, but just news sites.
