@JohnLStrickland Looking forward to hosting Q&A session with #IAG CEO Willie Walsh in Dublin this Sunday @AvClubUK first international dinner. Should be a great evening with some good craic!.
@WandrMe Lost aircraft are spectacularly rare and will soon be nearly impossible, thanks to new satellite technology from @AireonLLC. But the new system will do far more than that. This is the first major ATC tech upgrade in more than a generation.
@WandrMe The 787-10 will drop CASM TATL by 10%+ as it replaces older planes, but $UAL also expects RASM will dip slightly based on increased capacity and competition.
@WandrMe $UAL’s Kirby says unpredictable fuel costs are going to remain but that the carrier will not let them drive passenger-focused business decisions.
@WandrMe $UAL says the unit cost of flying pax on 737 MAX vs older 737s or smaller planes are in double digits. That’s impressive savings.
