@e_russell Delta announced today that it now considers Boston a “hub” to reflect its growth to 150 peak day flights there.
@e_russell JetBlue is not backing down with Delta’s challenge in Boston. The airline plans shuttle-type products to NYC, DC and Philly from Boston later this year, says JetBlue manager route planning Jack Massey. #JumpStart19.
@e_russell Spirit has narrowed options for its next aircraft order: in are the A220, A320neo and 737 Max families, out is the E2.
@timjue Absolutely no surprise here: Airbus plans to send practically its entire fleet to #PAS19: A220, A350-1000, A330neo, A321LR and its Vahana flying taxi will all make appearance.
@timjue Boeing’s aircraft presence will be subdued at the 2019 Paris Air Show: a Boeing 787-9 in Air Tahiti Nui colors will be on display & in flight. No Boeing 737 MAX, obviously. USN P-8 Poseidon & USAF KC-46 Pegasus among the USDOD military aircraft at #PAS19.
