@BoeingAirplanes The 787th 787 #Dreamliner is freshly painted! This jet will soon join China Southern’s fleet. With 210+ new non-stop routes around the world, the largest windows and other cabin comforts, it’s no wonder passengers love it. @CSAIRGlobal.
@HelsinkiAirport *In 2018 Helsinki Airport has been awarded the best airport in the Northern Europe by SkyTrax.
@juliejohnsson @Airbus is looking for engineers to develop digital production systems for an A350neo and a new-single aisle to eventually replace its cash-cow A320, @_benkatz reports. The rates are astounding: 20/mo and 100/mo, respectively.
@McWhirterAlex Over the past year @KLM achieved an overall load factor of which any LCC would be proud. But beware of more ancillary fees in 2019 as this efficient airline seeks to drive revenue. via @luchtvaart.
@WandrMe There’s also a special, additional goods and services credit from Airbus to JetBlue for any A321neo frames that convert to the LR model “to support entry into service.” This is on top of the normal credits and discounts associated with the master agreement between the two.
