@AireonLLC Did you know that when the 5th #IridiumNEXT launch payloads come online, the #Aireon service will have nearly global coverage w/ 15-minute or better update intervals. This signifies optimal timing for #airlines to begin testing the capabilities of space-based ADS-B. @flightaware.
@JohnLStrickland Alan Joyce @Qantas talks on project Sunrise to get non stop capability for SYD/MEL-LHR. Gauntlet laid down to @Airbus @BoeingAirplanes @AvClubUK.
@JohnLStrickland For #IAG @AerLingus is a lean mean fighting machine across the Atlantic #airlines.
@JohnLStrickland Larger fleet, bigger #aircraft (seat capacity), more countries mark out @Ryanair as well ahead of other European LCC’s.
@sweeney_aidan Since IAG takeover, @AerLingus has more @HeathrowAirport slots today than in 2015. Airline is most profitable part of IAG #Tourism2025.
