@bankelele France grants Emirates extra flights .. Air France deplores this decision .. but the French government granted the slots to maintain good relations with Emirates and Dubai – and after all it is Emirates who has kept the A380 programme alive.
@e_russell American plans to grow “intelligently” going forward, cutting utilization flying and under-performing routes from its smaller hubs.
@e_russell Delta sees continued growth @RDUAirport, with much coming from larger gauge aircraft and new frequencies rather than routes.
@e_russell Not a huge surprise, Delta faces no competition to Mumbai from Atlanta + benefit of connecting hub. Execs have previously said either #ATL or #JFK gateway.
@mike_carrivick An interesting point re ultra-long haul flights. Guess it will depend not just on fuel costs, but also load factors and currencies of ticket sales.
