Paris Air Show opens amid concerns over trade wars, airline safety

The 53rd Paris Air Show has kicked off outside the French capital. The biennial event is the largest aerospace gathering in the world, but this year, concerns over trade wars, air safety and weakening demand are casting a shadow. Boeing says it comes to Le Bourget with "humility" in the wake of its 737 MAX crisis. Plus, Cuba's tourism industry is starting to feel the impact of the recent ban on US cruise ships by the Trump administration, with a sharp drop in the number of visitors.
