@e_russell As Delta and United look at options to replace their 767s, Airbus touts an ability to customise the A330neo to meet their need.

@e_russell “Sometimes an aircraft has too much capability, and too much range and actually becomes… sub-optimal for what your mission needs are,” said Delta CEO Bastian in June.

@e_russell “The 797 will be Boeing’s first commodity twin-aisle airplane.”

@e_russell United has written down the value of its Brazil routes, citing the ratification of open skies in May. Anticipates ~$105m non-cash charge in the second quarter. United operates 5 daily flights to Brazil.

@winglets747 EC asked if it evaluated Air Italy’s ownership and – critically – control post-Qatar Airways’ 49% investment in Air Italy and the carrier’s resulting new strategy. EC responds that Italian authorities say Air Italy is Italian, so that is good enough.
