Hello Reddit! My name is Benjamin Zhang. I’m a transportation correspondent and I’ve spent the past five years covering aviation and autos for Business Insider.
I’ve written about airliners like the Airbus A380 Superjumbo, the Boeing 747 Jumbo jet, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A350-900. I’ve also flown on private jets from Gulfstream, Embraer, and even Honda.
My airline coverage ranges from interviews with the CEOs of Delta, United, Lufthansa, Qantas, and Emirates to industry stories like the nasty dispute between US airlines (American, Delta, United) and their rivals from the Middle East (Emirates, Etihad, and Qatar).
As an autos reporter, I’ve driven hundreds of different cars and written countless reviews. My reviews run the gamut from everyday cars like the Honda Accord or Toyota RAV4 to luxury cars like the Tesla Model X or Porsche Panamera. I’ve also driven ultra-luxury cars like the Rolls-Royce Phantom and the Bentley Bentayga. And there are the supercars I’ve driven like the McLaren 720S, Ferrari 488 Spider, Lamborghini Aventador and Bugatti Chiron.
