@dominicgates Boeing’s disadvantage was the fading availability of its 777-8X, with even the -9X delayed. Emirates CEO Tim Clark wants a thorough flight test program for the 777-9X of at least 16 months. “I’ll be surprised if delivery to Emirates is before the second half of 2021,” Clark said
@hharteveldt Intriguing: @Delta to take equity stake in & partner with @WheelsUp . Delta will fold its Delta Private Jets unit into wheels Up.
@hharteveldt The @TWAhotel is beautiful, but its occupancy rate is reported to be very low (-30%) because it’s invisible. The TWA Hotel isn’t listed in the GDSs, which can produce 40%-60% of a hotel’s reservations.
@jonostrower The grounding of the 737 Max has become the most severe safety crisis in the history of aviation.
@seattletimes To protect the wing fuel tank of the 787 Dreamliner jet in a lightning storm, Boeing originally built in a series of protective measures. It has now dropped some of those protections, drawing complaints from FAA technical experts.
