@AeronewsRO OFFICIAL / Romanian low-cost operator Blue Air has bought Air Moldova for more than 1.2 billion lei. Blue Air officials said they will pay the debts of Air Moldova and help develop the airline.

@JohnLStrickland Traffic stats from @Ryanair gives context to challenges they face : “During the entire month of September, while we cancelled just over 400 flights, we completed over 68,000 scheduled flights with more than 80% of these flights arriving on time”.Not great but still an achievement.

@JournoDannyAero One wonders if Primera Air’s demise, the issues seemingly dogging Wow Air and the cash crush at Norwegian gives some period of reflection for JetBlue.

@peterbellew Replying to @JohnLStrickland Sadly low cost long haul is the graveyard of ambition for startups.  Seems almost impossible without business class or the deep pockets of a legacy carrier??.

@Vinamralongani Case in point : Russia wants an extortionate sum of money per pax from Icelandic Carrier @wow_air as overflight charges. This makes flying to the Far East commercially unviable for the airline. #AvGeek
