@e_russell @Delta has purchased one former-Shanghai Airlines 757-200 from Boeing Capital, four more FM 757s r in storage, Ascend shows.
@fiannafailparty Cork Airport should be given the same supports & independence that Shannon was given, otherwise the situation will continue to decline #dail.
@jonostrower Boeing 787 deferred production (combined unit losses) rise $793m to ~$27B, commercial margin falls 1.3% on higher Dreamliner deliveries.
@jonostrower NOTE: The 787 program remains profitable by Boeing’s accounting, which allows it to spread the high early costs over 1,300 deliveries.
@Kenny_Jacobs Ireland best, coolest and most successful marketing team has ten vacancies. Have fun, do loads and make a great product even better. Apply.
@winglets747 airberlin follows IAG in leaving European airline association. Surprisingly given its large Etihad ownership, it wasn’t first to leave.
@winglets747 Airberlin CEO on leaving European trade group: “We see no future in a protectionist aviation policy in Europe.”
@winglets747 airberlin CEO says European airline assoc “driven” by airlines (AF-KLM, Lufthansa) “which desperately try to erect a new wall around Europe”.
@winglets747 Like Heathrow, Asian airports have been more about shopping than air services. Unlike Heathrow, they made the passenger experience pleasant.
