Tweet Picks:
@Airlineroute AerLingus’ planned A321neoLR service to Hartford is now scheduled from 15AUG19, instead of 02AUG19.

@Airlineroute Subject to further changes, Air New Zealand’s service to Niue to be operated by A320neo only, from 31MAR20, instead of A320ceo/neo mix.
@winglets747 JAL and ANA are expanding their brands in Hawaii beyond Hawaii-Japan flights. Big capacity increases coming as ANA prepares for A380 flights to Honolulu.
@winglets747 Qatar Airways CEO Akbar Al Baker responded to a question about consumer choice amongst Gulf connecting airlines by noting another factor is that “people want [an] efficient airport”. Doha has advantages over Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
