@AlaskaAir “Yesterday’s events will push us to learn what we can from this tragedy so that we can help prevent it from ever happening again, at our airline or any other.” – Brad Tilden, CEO Alaska Air Group.

@e_russell American said it would trim “underperforming” flying from its network this fall just over 3 weeks ago. Since then, AA has cut the most at #JFK, with seats down 1.63% in 2H18 versus published schedules in July.

@timjue Southwest Airlines is planning big growth at LGB-Long Beach, Calif. in Dec, 2018: – Launching LGB-Denver, Colo. – Increasing LGB-Las Vegas, NV to 3x daily – Increasing LGB-Sacramento, Calif. to 2x daily. Coinciding with planned draw down of JetBlue service on U.S. West Coast.

@timjue Southwest Airlines will offer food on planned flights to Hawaiian Islands, says @beatofhawaii. Transoceanic proving runs are expected to begin in the next 60 days. ETOPS certification is still needed from US FAA.

@vl_bryan “The Horizon incident really demonstrates why the idea of allowing airliners to be flown by a one-person crew is just nuts.”
