@AvWeekScho Qantas appears to be sticking to its fleet refresh goals… Confirms it will go to the market re. narrowbody replacement this year. Will cover the mainline 737s as well as the 717s and F100s. And Qantas is still very interested in whatever Boeing does in the NMA space.
@COMACAmerica The #C919 flight test program continued to advance on 2.23.2020! AC106 departed Shanghai Pudong Airport and landed at Dongying Shengli Airport after taking a 1 hour & 59 min flight. AC106 will carry out flight test missions focused on cabin, lighting & exterior noise. #Progress.
@e_russell Guess this means more temporary widebody shifts for Delta (ie, A350s to Europe, A330/767s to domestic routes).
@JohnLStrickland Seems @AmericanAir & @qatarairways have reached a rapprochement with the signature of a codeshare & strategic partnership. #airlines.
@skift The U.S. travel industry attracted $2.3 billion in VC funding in 2018 and accounted for over 30% of the global total.
