Tweets of the day:
@e_russell “If there was less capacity added into our hubs, rationally, we’d do better,” says American CEO Parker, but says thats not a rational view.
@e_russell “This is purely around analytics, fact driven and about being competitive in the marketplace,” says United CEO Munoz on new routes.
@e_russell “What we’ve learned in this bottom’s up review… you lay fleet down for really long periods of time,” says United CEO Munoz.
@e_russell ie, aircraft sat on the ground under prev schedule for really long periods of time. ASM growth result of better utilisation.
@ghimlay .@JetBlue’s new CFO is doing “major review” of airline’s fleet plan, says CEO, after calling E190 a “high CASM” airplane.
@JurnoDannyAsia However @cathaypacific probably needs an IAG style Willie Walsh slasher to deliver huge transformation and change.
@serhiykiral @Ryanair comes to #Lviv @LwoAero. Finally! Big win for mayor @andriy_sadovyi @lvivadm, after 5 years of hard talks! Big win for #Ukrainians!.
