@airlineroute QATAR Airways to operate A380 to Atlanta on 01JUN16 inaugural as one-off flight.

@ghimlay .@JetBlue still “looking very seriously” at long-range A321neo, says CEO Robin Hayes.

@vl_bryan Lots of mutual respect between CEOs Walsh and Al Baker.

@WandrMe Bogota and San Juan seeing capacity cuts or reallocations from @Jetblue this summer. “Surgical” changes, not system changes. #AvGeek #paxex.

@winglets747 Singapore Airlines-Air France codeshare/alliance logical. Seemingly contradictory to SIA-Lufthansa JV, but Gulf carriers far bigger threat.
