@Airlineroute CAAC on 21DEC17 posted Air China’s application to split Beijing – Vienna – Barcelona to Beijing – Vienna (3 weekly) and Beijing – Barcelona (4 weekly) with A330, from March 2018.
@Airlineroute Previously not specified, Virgin America’s A321neo aircraft will be identified with aircraft code 32B when it transitions to Alaska’s AS-coded flight numbers from 25APR18 (currently identified as 321 under VX flight numbers).
@dominicgates If @Boeing succeeds in acquiring Brazil’s Embraer, a likely side effect is that the deal will kill the smallest MAX, the 737 MAX 7. But if the deal fails, @Airbus, with the Bombardier CSeries, will have a potentially dominant single-aisle jet line-up.
@jonostrower Boeing says it has received FAA certification for the 767-2C, which is the commercial airframe on which the KC-46A tanker is based.
@ReutersAero Embraer confirms it is in talks with Boeing on potential business combination.
