A way of innovation?

From Mr Adam White.

Sir, Tyler Brûlé admonishes airlines for excuses that are seldom matched by “anything new in the way of innovation” (“Where’s the airlines’ blue-sky thinking?”, Life & Arts, November 16). This is, presumably, as opposed to anything old in the way of innovation? Is Mr Brûlé’s prose excused the rigours of the FT copy desk?
