@e_russell Qantas ultra long-range aircraft (777-8 v A350-900) decision hinges on ability to carry a full load.

@e_russell “We want to work closely with United for a joint venture,” Azul chief Rodgerson tells @ghimlay.

@ghimlay From 11 May, all LATAM Brazil flights will switch to LA code from JJ. Exception: Brazil-US flights, which require open skies to change.

@MaxK_J GE’s Chaker Chahour says CFM doesn’t think a geared engine is solution for @BoeingAirplanes NMA #sgairshowALS #SAALS2018.

@WandrMe Some interesting stats on award redemption from the Amadeus presentation: 70% of airline miles are redeemed for air travel awards. Partner/product segment is growing, but still very much the minority. #Loyalty2018 #paxex.
