@e_russell Fitch notes how American’s order for 47 787s and related retirements “made it clear that the A330-200s will play an important role in the AAL’s fleet for the foreseeable future”. 

@e_russell “We and United continue discussing objectives, the type of joint venture, revenue sharing and other matters,” says Azul on JV talks in its annual report.

@LARA_editor Interesting insight on upsurge in air cargo market where demand grew near double digit last year says @BoeingAirplanes while capacity grew just 3% by available freight tonne kilometer. This year demand again outpacing capacity. Over past 2 years Boeing sold nearly 80 freighters.

@winglets747 Many of HNA’s airline investments lacked strong rationale. Azul deal especially complicated by sheer distance between Brazil and China. Unlike other airline investments, HNA’s stake in Azul attracted a buyer.

@8020vision Visionary stuff from @wow_air boss Skuli Mogensen at @AvClubUK: Iceland can become ‘Dubai of the North’ when WOW’s new A330 neos put the entire globe within reach.
