Tweet Picks:

@BeckyQuick Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun, on why he’s not going to change the name of the 737 MAX: “I’m not going to market my way out of this.” Good answer.

@e_russell From 2017 to 2019, Alaska raised the share of revenue coming from “premium” products – first class, Premium Class – by 15 points to 22%. And elite frequent fliers can still snag “prized,” as @hharteveldt puts it, complimentary upgrades.

@e_russell “By extending our 717 leases to the middle of the decade, we are indicating that we are not planning to replace this fleet in the next five years,” says Hawaiian CEO Peter Ingram during $HA’s quarterly earnings call.

@RunwayGirl By 2025, Gen Z will be the largest traveling population “so we need to get ready to shift” to meet their expectations with seamless inflight connectivity, says  @PanasonicAero executive director, digital solutions and services Julie Lichty at #APEXTECH. #PaxEx.

@zlwichter “Today’s Boeing announcement essentially trashes the summer flight schedules for 737 MAX customers and, in turn, their passengers.” –
