@manishasinghal Raining planes @flyspicejet the airline said getting six more Boeing737-8 on dry lease, subject to regulatory approvals aircraft slated to join the airline over the next 10days. Over the past 10 days it has announced induction plans for 16 737s & 5 Q400s #JetAirwaysCrisis.
@TUIflyBelgium Replying to @mike_carrivick @McWhirterAlex We stopped the pre-booked meals, but we still have an in-flight service where passengers can buy snacks/drinks on board. No need to starve on our flights :-).
@Vinamralongani Replying to @McWhirterAlex The Chinese carriers are the new disruptors in air travel between Europe and SE Asia/Australia. They offer great value for money, fancy new planes, decent inflight experience and brand new airports to transit through. The hubs in the sand have another reason to worry.
@winglets747 Interesting perspective: 737 MAX accounted for 1.4% of capacity at United Far less talked about India flights impacted by Pakistani airspace closure, account for 1.2% of United capacity.
