@e_russell Boeing still discounts narrowbodies as mid-market aircraft answer, via @jmhdinger.
@e_russell “What would happen if Boeing were to dust off that thing we called a 787-3, let’s tweak it, let’s take some weight out, let’s do some clever stuff with it, and maybe that’s our NMA?” – @airinsight.
@JohnLStrickland .@qatarairways made a go of it with #AirItaly but Italian short haul market is LCC dominated with @Ryanair leading. Lucrative US market sees US big three taking an interest in what Gulf carriers are doing ex Italy & then of course there’s #Alitalia.
@R_Wall Boeing CEO says he will not hesitate to move forward on the next airplane.
@SimonCalder Europe’s busiest airports: at present rates of growth, Paris CDG will be neck-and-neck with London Heathrow by the end of July 2021, and then move ahead to take LHR’s title.
