@Airlineroute British Airways this week (of 07MAY18) launches 336-seater 777-200ER service at London Gatwick, featuring 3-4-3 layout in Economy.

@airlinewriter At @AmericanAir they are adding routes and frequencies to Hawaii and the Caribbean; also seeking to suspend ORD-PEK without surrendering the route to a competitor.

@DuncanBureau Today is an exciting day for me as I join the team @AirCanadaRouge as President.  This team has done an amazing job over the last four years with contributing to the Canadian Economy, creating jobs and driving tourism – we are looking forward to seeing onboard.

@justinbachman To simplify its RJ fleets, $AAL will end service with ExpressJet and Trans States in April, taking its regional carrier count to seven from 10. (ExpressJet to become $UAL exclusive.)

@winglets747 JAL to establish a long-haul LCC. From CAPA back in March: question “is whether Japan Airlines will remain content with what it can achieve with its minority ownership in Jetstar Japan, or if JAL needs to make changes to its LCC strategy.”
