@e_russell “Phoenix in [AA’s] system is roughly the size of London Heathrow (LHR) in British Airways’ system,” says American VP of network Raja.

@ghimlay Southwest CEO, on revival of open-skies dispute: “We are in favor of open skies… We expect our government to uphold the versions of the treaties that have been signed.”

@jonostrower  First, Delta: “The addition of geared-turbofan technical knowledge at Delta TechOps will not only be applied to the 200 engines that will power Delta’s A321neo fleet, but will also uniquely position TechOps as an MRO leader in this space as future engine types are developed.”

@WandrMe .@Delta’s Bastian notes lack of Texas hub but, “Mexico is our Texas in a certain way and we’re going to look to optimize it.” #AvGeek.
