@AirlineGeeks  “70% of our aircraft are delivered outside of the United States.” @BoeingAirplanes CEO Conner.

@AirlineGeeks  “Very important order for not only the US but also Boeing employees.” -@BoeingAirplanes CEO Ray Conner.

@e_russell Proof no route is ever safe. @AmericanAir exits Binghamton and Elmira after 45 years.

@FinaviaOyj  Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker: “Helsinki has been a long desired destination for our route map” #HelsinkiTogether.

@LeehamNews @TexasTomBob MAX 8s built so far are only for @SouthwestAir and @LionAirID but not @Ryanair according to @Boeing.

@Lucy_Huxley Swaffield @monarch The issues with the CAA were unfortunate and had an impact on bookings. On holiday bookings more than flights #abta16.
