@Airlineroute United to display UA-coded flight number on Croatia Airlines’ Zagreb – Dublin route.

@Airlineroute Qatar Airways has extended A350-1000XWB service to London Heathrow until 24MAR18 inclusive.

@BabakTaghvaee All of #IranAir’s Historical Airplanes including Boeing 747SPs & 727s are now planned to be scrapped in three months, because the airline authorities want to wip-out the airline’s glorious history in pre-Islamic Revolution days. EP-IAA, EP-IAB & EP-IAD will be scrapped this week.

@ghimlay Avianca CEO Hernan Rincon says talks with United on JV “continue on a positive note”, says he doesn’t have answer on how long more it will take (Rincon previously guided to end-2017).

@PeterAdamSmith  Ryanair pulls all but 3 of its routes from Glasgow Airport.  @GLA_Airport says it’s “a consequence of the Scottish Government’s inability to introduce its proposed 50% cut in Air Departure Tax…Despite clear and repeated warnings from both airports and airlines…” @itvnews.
