@e_russell “This partnership means that Los Angeles will be able to be more successful. We anticipate seeing a level of connectivity that we’ve never seen in L.A,” said American’s Vasu Raja on the airline’s new pact with Alaska. #LAX.
@embraer The @HelveticAirways brand new #Embraer #E190E2 is now flying between Zürich and Florence. It’s the first time an #E2 has flown to the downtown airport. Only a few aircraft types can operate from the challenging 1,560 m (5,118 ft) runway. #Embraer50 #EmbraerStories.
