@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 United acquired a fifth of Hainan Airlines’ stake in Azul for about $138m.

@eurocontrolDG New @eurocontrol Industry Monitor: growth rate of European flights was 3.4% in Q12018. Highest increase in flights @TurkishAirways (+153) @easyJet(+107) @Ryanair (+89) @Wizzair (+80) @Vueling (+70).

@HofmannAviation Shannon Airport targets @Boeing 737 MAX and @Airbus A321LR LCC operators to use the airport as a springboard to the US and Canada, as low cost hub to exchange passengers between those flights. 

@justinbachman “I’ll take this year over the vast majority of the years I’ve been working in the industry,” $LUV CEO @gary_kelly says, reminding a Barclays analyst that U.S. airlines (and @SouthwestAir) remain wildly profitable, despite higher fuel costs. #airlines #fuel.

@U_Gendrot “The #AirFrance staff  (precision : small part of the staff but powerful in strike damage) is striking the airline into the ground and any semblance of rationality has been lost. #KLM is stuck with the new #Alitalia, one named #AirFrance”.
