@Airbus A year ago, we delivered the 1st #A350 XWB. Since then, the A350 fleet has spent more than 16,000 hours in the air. 

@AirlineFlyer Delta isn’t the only airline that wants to fly its jets forever. British Airways wants to extend its 777 life to 30 years.

@e_russell “China’s becoming a pillar of our Pacific strategy,” says @Delta’s Bastian. China capacity will be up 5-7% in 2016.

@e_russell Another new US-China route, @HainanAirlines will begin 2x weekly LAX-Changsha service with a 788 from 21Jan16.

@e_russell @SilverAirways and @azulinhasaereas are near finalising a new codeshare agreement, says Silver CEO Teittinen.
