@AvGeekJames Japan Airlines has outlined more details for their new LCC entity, named TBL Co. Ltd. The airline will run with two of JAL’s 787-8’s with the intension of expanding capacity on each jet from 161-184 to 290-300 seats.
@e_russell “There are some routes that the 757 and 767 fly today that don’t have an economic replacement. It depends on what the operating performance of the aircraft is and, more importantly, what the price of the aircraft is,” says United president Kirby on NMA/797 thoughts. #BoydDEN.
@ghimlay .@SpiritAirlines likely to make decision on next aircraft order within six months, says CEO. Airline is not tied to single fleet type of A320, he emphasizes. Airbus taking control of A220 (ie CSeries) is viewed by airline as a positive, says Fornaro #BoydDEN.
@e_russell “We’re going to start with our biggest business markets and then it will morph into other areas of our network,” says Delta network SVP Esposito on planned A220 routes (feels wrong to not write #CSeries). #BoydDEN.
@timjue Hawaiian Airlines will suspend flights between Honolulu, Oahu & Beijing in October 2018. Carrier says there isn’t enough demand between mainland China & the islands. Route was launched four years ago, HA’s only flight to China.
