Tweet Picks:
@AlexInAir Flybe do not actually own its #Heathrow slots — and they don’t appear on the balance sheet. They were awarded them when BMI closed down, and told they could use them for domestic services (to feed long haul arrivals onto Flybe) so long as they flew for at least 3 years…#Flybe.
@AlexInAir In #Africa, taxes for fuel in some countries are almost twice the global average. Add that to high taxes, protectionist legal barriers, regulatory setbacks, and stubborn nationalism…
@AvMROSean Southwest’s ETOPS subfleet will start with 28 737-800s. Plan is to add newer 737-8s later. Opted for -800s first in part because of experience with the type. ETOPS approval isn’t just a rubber stamp–it’s amended procedures, training, etc.
@designerjet “As a German engineer I am very embarrassed about Berlin airport but as the CEO of Lufthansa I couldn’t care less.” —Spohr.
@designerjet Carsten Spohr, Chairman & CEO, Deutsche Lufthansa AG says “fares have come down amazingly and they will stay low, but it is time for a correction.” Adds, “We all need to see how we get through these new oil prices.” #WOCE18 Emphasis that we are “nowhere near a crisis.”
@NatlAero Congratulations @GulfstreamAero on achieving #NAA’s latest #AviationRecord: Miami, FL to London, UK: 568 mph in a Gulfstream G650ER.
