@airkarp 87% of people who flew American Airlines in the last year flew AA only once that year. Those passengers represent about 50% of AA’s revenue.
@JohnLStrickland Great news to see the @AerLingus shamrock arriving at @MPLaeroport #Montpellier with new @DublinAirport service May 2016 @TheHUBRoutes.
@planemadblog British Airways are to cease operations of their BA2277/2276 Gatwick to Las Vegas service, last rotation, 25th April 2016.
@winglets747 Emirates has 267 aircraft on order. First flight 30 years ago today. Rest of the story isn’t history. It’s yet to happen. #hellotomorrow.
@winglets747 Paul Byrne of flynas jokes his airline has 33 nationalities but it’s a hard number to pronounce as an Irishman.
@winglets747 Yes it’s apparent Finnair wants IAG to buy it. But does IAG want to buy it?.
