@e_russell ICYMI: American’s 767s will be gone by May, 757s by around mid-2021 in what will likely be one of the first airline fleet reductions due to the coronavirus crisis.
@e_russell “We’re going to back the airlines 100%, it’s not their fault, it’s nobody’s fault,” Trump says during presser. h/t @zlwichter.
@LiveFromALounge Was just curious to see how is this #COVID19 crisis affecting the super-connector, #Emirates. 8 A380s sent for storage to DWC, 12 in DXB, might be pulled up for a flight but sent back in parking bays for long after. 7 77Ws are also the same fate. 115 A380s & 134 77Ws in fleet.
@LondonAirTravel ACL, which oversees slot allocations at City, Gatwick & Heathrow, is to grant an alleviation for non-use of slots from 1 March to 30 June 2020. This will mean very substantial reductions to schedules.
@Tremdave Airlines, Hotels, Retailers will be going through challenging times. This is where Loyalty programs can shine. Brands need to connect, inform & engage members. Collaborate across department & with partners. Cobrand credit cards partners should be driving acquisitions & spend.
