@e_russell Delta’s CFO expressed to investors at a Raymond James conference yesterday that U.S. domestic demand has “notably” slowed but not made a “dramatic” drop due to coronavirus fears since last week $DAL.

@jrobinsuk Consensus at among chief execs of IAG, @Ryanair, @easyJet,  @AirFranceKLM  and @lufthansa that #coronavirus will speed up consolidation in Europe. “The weak airlines that are out there, I can’t see a way through this,” says IAG’s Willie Walsh. #aviation #A4ESummit.

@timhepher Elbow fight: #Ryanair boss Michael O’Leary notes increase in size of 737 over its 50-year history to 230 seats. #Lufthansa CEO Carsten Spohr, sitting to his left at #A4ESUMMIT, mimes a passenger doubled up with little legroom.

@WandrMe LH Group’s Spohr wants innovation and new aircraft but also believes as a CEO that basically only Boeing/Airbus are viable suppliers. Speaking of the CSeries/A220, “It is a great aircraft but it is only feasible once Airbus took over.” #A4ESummit #AvGeek #PaxEx.

@WandrMe “I don’t see it as a cyclical business any more.” That’s an incredibly bold statement from  @Airbus’s Christian Scherer #AvGeek #A4ESummit.
