@airportnewsMAN *news* in an effort to post something slightly more positive, @easyJet intend to base 2 A321 at @manairport from November 2020, with some already appearing in the seat plans. Obviously it’s subject to change but, a slight glimmer of hope in a sea of uncertainty.
@AmericanAir Our first cargo-only flight, since 1984, departed from @DFWAirport to Frankfurt, Germany, filled with medical supplies, mail for active U.S. military, telecommunications equipment and e-commerce packages.
@e_russell United reinstated 6 long-haul routes to “get customers where they need to be,” after cutting entire long-haul network.

@FBenenati We have begun flying a portion of our 777 and 787 fleet as dedicated cargo charter aircraft – getting critical goods into the hands of the businesses and people who need them most is extremely important right now.
