@adamspink A reminder to anyone using Flight Radar 24 or similar to judge aircraft altitudes around LHR, that the unusually high air pressure (1044mb) means you have to add 930ft to get a more accurate figure. FR24 et al report altutide based on 1013mb 1044-1013=31, 31x(30ft per mb)= 930ft.
@calpacificair CPA has temporarily suspended Carlsbad flights and ticket sales due to being impacted by the nationwide pilot shortage. We are in the process of training new qualified pilots who will allow us to relaunch services soon.  January flights will be refunded automatically.
@JohnLStrickland Really pleased to see this acknowledgement by MOL, he visited Herb, learned the keys to @SouthwestAir success than added to it & @Ryanair ‘s recipe was born!.
@jonostrower Contrast to 2019: Boeing going up in 767 freighter production, FedEx is buying a ton of new SkyCouriers, Amazon adding 10 more 767s, jetliner conversions are humming and freight may drive the NMA’s business case. The global economy is in trouble when this starts cracking.
