@e_russell American operated 24 737 Max 8 when the type was grounded. It expected 16 more deliveries in 2019.
@e_russell The idea of “total value creation” was front and centre in Delta’s A220 rationale – not only does the aircraft provide it with improved economics and range, but MRO and inflight entertainment revenue streams made it even more economically attractive.
@TheForwardCabin There’s definitely a noticeable trend of higher fares on @AmericanAir since the MAX cancellations. City pairs like JFK to DCA have noticed a dramatic reduction in capacity, for example and fares have shot up because of it.
@winglets747 Cruz: “Imagine that we find a…A380 whose owners don’t want any more – think Malaysian, Emirates, Lufthansa. Imagine they give it to us at a really reasonable price. Everything breaks down the moment you start thinking about the inside of the aircraft.”
@winglets747 Etihad is taking Jet Airways’ Heathrow slots. Etihad’s Heathrow network would grow from 3x to 6x daily. Very lucrative 5:45am arrival slot, but this doesn’t fit well into Etihad’s hub banks Some caution this is paper only – negotiating tactic, sell slots.
