@DublinAirport The most popular aircraft at @DublinAirport is the B737-800 with over 40% of flights operating that model #Aviation.
@ghimlay.@Delta has also deferred four A350-900s from 2018 to 2019/20, to keep pace with when international market will improve.
@ghimlay .@Delta says it expects Brazil unit revenue to turn positive this winter season. Very optimistic!.

@winglets747 Secondhand A380 market: SIA’s first 5 with lease expiry aren’t indicative. Those 5 are early models w/ significant production inefficiencies.
