@airlinewriter Cowen analysts say @amazon could shop for B777Fs or A321s because of the limited supply of available used B767s and @Boeing’s full production schedule for 767 freighters.

@COMACAmerica On May 2 Chengdu Airlines celebrated the launch of a new #ARJ21 route network in Heilongjiang, with the city of Harbin as the main hub. The aircraft will serve multiple cities in Heilongjiang as well as Chengdu and Jinan. The ARJ21 route network continues to grow!.

@justinbachman Gogo’s new CEO likens the inflight Wi-Fi industry to “Game of Thrones.” (Stock drops 13 pct today.)

@NetJets In good company. Over 100 flights land in Omaha for the annual Berkshire Hathaway shareholders meeting. #OnlyNetJets.

@scramble_nl The #HNAGroup is said to have signed a deal with @Airbus for 15 #A350 planes. The airline group also decided that @HainanAirlines will become the longhaul specialist within the group and will transfer longhaul planes from #CapitalAirlines and #TianjinAirlines to Hainan. #avgeek.
