Tweet Picks: 

@e_russell Alaska’s first priority in 2020 will be “doing whatever we need to do to defend and grow out of the states of Washington, Alaska and Oregon.” A change from their California push that drive the VX merger (via  @dominicgates).
@e_russell Noteworthy point from @theaircurrent  – some #737MAX customers are contractually able to begin cancelling orders without penalty after 1 October.
@e_russell Southwest CEO Kelly acknowledges what analysts have been saying, Southwest – and other MAX operators – are “spilling capacity” and benefitting competitors. $LUV.
@JournoDannyAero Loss-making Hong Kong Airlines  @hkairlines cuts San Francisco & Fuzhou as reshuffle sees extra flights to Haikou (+7w), Sapporo (+2w) & Hangzhou (+4w) @SCMPNews as per earlier story.
@WandrMe $LUV expects that the pilot training will not require sim time. 30-day agreement with pilots to complete any additional CBT.  Planes at VCV will take 1-2 months to get back to service. Up to 3/week will be accepted from Boeing out of storage there. Plus new deliveries. #AvGeek.
