@JournoDannyAero By me @SCMP_News: @CathayPacific set to go non-stop to Cape Town. Yet again a new route w/ little or no mainland Chinese airline competition, a pattern emerges: Barcelona, Christchurch, Brussels, Copenhagen, Dublin, Washington DC.
@SweeneyABC INTERESTING: United Airlines just reduced its in-flight magazine weight by one ounce. The lighter paper will save the airline 170,000 gallons of fuel or $290,000 annually. Duty Free is also gone. That will save $2.3 million in fuel costs.
@winglets747 Deeper AirAsia and AirAsia X integration needed but they have different shareholders. Opportunity at group level for AirAsia X to fly its widebodies on sub-4 hour routes currently flown by AirAsia narrowbodies.
