From the BBC World Service… Another day, another merger: This time it's between two airline companies in Asia looking to take advantage of consumer interest in the low-cost market. Then, we hear from a British businesses owner who's looking to the U.S. for expansion amid growing Brexit uncertainty. Plus, essay mills, which churn out ready-to-hand-in essays for students, have become a large part of a global cheating industry that has been fueled by rapid innovations in technology. But it has also become a growing threat to international education as research shows up to one in seven students are skirting the rules at school.

Today's show is sponsored by Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage.
