@ghimlay After years of verbosity and lobbying in the US in Norwegian and Gulf/open-skies disputes, it is interesting to note that both eventually petered out on a late Friday afternoon.

@ghimlay .@azulinhasaereas says it has no plans to launch JFK or new international points this year, points to high fuel and FX pressures as rationale behind more conservative approach.

@ghimlay .@interjet will leave @SFB_Airport in favour of @MCO in June, grows 4x/weekly MEX service to daily at MCO.

@nornesec The Finance Minister of France owning 15% of Air France warns employees and Trade Unions that the airline will disappear if it is not competitive. It looks like IAG and Lufthansa are the 2 winners. 

@TheWoracle UK’s Neoptera @ElectricVTOL looks extraordinary in its tailsitting vertical take-off and landing configuration (left) – cabin stays horizontal as aircraft rotates to transition between vertical and horizontal flight.
