Tweet Picks:

@airlinewriter DL is asking the Transportation Department for approval to fly between MSP and Shanghai. @Delta says flights would start in June 2020 using A350-900s.

@AvMROSean Delta asks DOT for MSP-PVG frequencies, citing a decline in seats between central US & Asia. Last week, American told DOT it wanted to pause its ORD-China flights till Nov 2019 in part due to over-capacity in the market. 

@AvMROSean Small regional jets are playing a big role in helping United boost hub flow and lift system-wide ASMs 4-6% annually through 2020. By yearend, it will have added 78 CRJ200s to its regional fleet in two year.

@AvWeekScho Hawaiian Airlines CEO Ingram says the carrier is “substantially back on track” with A321neo deliveries following delays earlier this year. Expects to have 11 by yearend (nine now), which was the goal at the start of the year.

@Vinamralongani YVR & DEL route will feed into each other. This is a seasonal service, not sure how much loyalty Wow can drive in the market. All this chopping and churning of routes makes them the bottom end feeder in any market. This results in poor yields #AvGeek.
