@e_russell “Delta is pleased by the ITC’s ruling rejecting Boeing’s anticompetitive attempt to deny U.S. airlines and the U.S. traveling public access to the state-of-the-art 110-seat CS100 aircraft when Boeing offers no viable alternative.” -@Delta on ITC ruling.

@e_russell “We have immense opportunities to grow with the [737] Max 8, Max 7. That will be our focus for a long time,” says $LUV CEO Kelly.

@WandrMe Re A321LR, $JBLU Hayes says, “The lens that we’re looking through there is a Boston and New York focus city strategy…We’ve had phenomenal success with Mint and we’re looking at that through the lens of margin” vs more Mint or 200-seat A320. #AvGeek #PaxEx.

@WandrMe “The industry over time has gotten better and better about varying capacity” seasonally. We were late to the game, “hard wired” to just run year-round schedules. -$LUV’s CEO @gary_kelly. #AvGeek #PaxEx.

@WandrMe  “We focus on nonstop, low cost traffic. A high cost legacy airline does not…. It is a cost advantage that translates to a fare advantage.” – $LUV’s @gary_kelly #AvGeek #PaxEx.
