@airlinewriter How hard does @SouthwestAir work its planes? Harder than other US carriers – on average, WN 737s fly 5.3 times per day. (Mainline flights only. Source: Airline Weekly analysis of data from Diio.)

@LuxuryTravelled So its confirmed that in a post-Brexit world we will need a ETIAS to travel to Europe.

@richardbranson Although you’ll still see the Virgin America name on or in planes for some time to come, today marks the final flights under the call sign. Thanks to the brilliant people & customers who created our unique flying experience. Of course, @Virgin flies on.

@RoutesEditor On expanding BA’s #A380 fleet, Cruz says: “We have 12 A380s – it’s a good performing aircraft and our passengers love it. If we were to find the right financial conditions – and IAG agrees – then we would be interested.” #RoutesEurope.

@winglets747 Tokyo-Helsinki: 12.5 hours in 1985 via the North Pole versus today’s 9.5 hours via Russia. Trans-Siberian route opening was important for aviation, but flights over Russia still face many restrictions. Lack of liberalization and openness holds back aviation.
