@e_russell Here are the Diio airline capacity stats, 2007 v 2017. NYC-BUF: down 26.6% NYC-LAX: up 50.8%. The economic disconnection btwn large metros and their hinterlands by numbers. cc @planetmoney.
@ghimlay American, JetBlue and United are not requesting additional HAV frequencies (after Delta’s decision to return some). But demand still exceeds supply for available HAV frequencies (requests for 72 weekly frequencies, but only 34 available).
@Jamie_Freed Korean Air spokesman told me airline has no plans to retire A380s as dubious AirLive story that one will be sent to Roswell boneyard next year spreads around the internet.
@KianiKress In a surprise move @easyJet makes #BerlinTegel – #Dusseldorf a genuie route with up to 6 daily flights each way, was denied till monday. So now routes #Cologne-Tegel, @MUC_Airport – @HamburgAirport or @dusairport – Munich are waiting guys.
@winglets747 Big thumbs down to @HIAQatar and @qatarairways for now requiring booking reference or ticket number to use WiFi 👎🙄 global hubs are about ease and efficiency – you can do better.
