@COMACAmerica Chengdu Airlines took delivery of its 5th #ARJ21 on April 29. The aircraft, registered B-3388 and delivered in a 90-seat all-economy configuration, is the latest addition to the ARJ21 passenger fleet, which has so far transported over 65,000 passengers over 2600+ flight hours!.

@crankyflier For all those speculating about who will try for the slots @JetBlue vacated at @LBAirport, you can scratch @AlaskaAir off your list for the same reasons most others aren’t interested: “Long Beach just looks like a very challenging environment”.

@e_russell American will suspend ORD-PEK, a market its served since 2010, in October citing a low fare environment.  AA hopes to serve Beijing’s new airport from ORD in 2019.

@e_russell United purchases 737s and 777s from lessors, giving it “greater flexibility and better economics”, says CFO Levy.

@jonostrower The inventory build up on the KC-46 is enormous. On a delivery revenue basis it easily rivals the accumulated airplanes built during the early days of 787
