@e_russell #MWAA is already in discussions with Cathay Pacific to increase frequency on its new @Dulles_Airport nonstop beyond 4x weekly, says Surehan. Flights begin 17 Sep.

@e_russell Passenger numbers are rising @Dulles_Airport as costs drop below $20/passenger for the first time since 2010, boding well for United hub.

@ghimlay .@BWI_Airport is “logical” consideration for Southwest when it eventually offers codeshare flights with a partner for itineraries to Europe, says CEO $LUV.

@ghimlay .@SouthwestAir estimates it will need to fill half of any Canada flights with Canada point-of-sale passengers for them to be successful, will first require capabilities to market to Canada pax $LUV.

@winglets747 Cathay Pacific set to renew talks with pilots and finally end years-long conflict. From mid-2018 new Director of Flight Ops is Chris Kempis, a pilot with Airbus and Boeing experience. Cathay pilots never respected outgoing DFO Anna Thompson, who did not have flying experience.
