@Airlineroute EVA Air set to receive it’s first 787-9 (also overall first 787) on 02OCT18, configuration C26Y278.

@ghimlay  .@SouthwestAir remains bullish on growth at @BWI_Airport. CEO Gary Kelly: “We are at 240 daily departures today here and I wouldn’t put a cap on that.”

@JohnLStrickland I learned at the #airline #WorldRoutes forum that several airlines will not develop further in the French market while the uncertainty of regular ATC strikes continues The disruption costs are too high. 

@mikekat71 After 18 long years of service, 20,519 flights and 49,687 hours of flying time, we say goodbye to our beloved B-HNL 777-200 as she retires to Pima Air and Space Museum in Arizona. #cathaypacific #Boeing Happy that others will get to enjoy her up close!.

@winglets747 787 averages 17% more fuel efficient than A330 in this study. Also deciding factors (amongst many) are purchase/lease price and length of mission – 787’s fuel efficiency best realised on long-haul.
