Travel Extra May 2020 Issue
@AvWeekBen JetBlue consolidating service at metro areas across the country gives a likely preview of what other U.S. carriers will do to maintain their service level obligations under the CARES Act. The Act requires carriers to keep serving “all points”–not the same as all airports.
@FergalBowers Tánaiste Simon Coveney said the Covid-19 crisis has seen the biggest repatriation event of Irish people in history with 4,600 returned home from across the world.
@FergalBowers The European Commission has urged EU member states to maintain a ban on non-essential travel into the bloc’s passport-free zone until at least 15 May, to slow the coronavirus epidemic.
@Richard_on_aviation @rschuur_aero March orderbook @airbus includes cancellations 16 A220-300’s for @SaudiGulf_SGA .@avolon_aero 6 A320neo’s and 2 A321neo’s. @AerCapNV revised A320neo from 158 to 183 and A321neo from 108 to 133. Aviation Capital swapped 3 A320’s for A321’s.
@winglets747 Lufthansa fleet changes are an acceleration, not radical restructuring. The six A380s were already due to leave in 2022 while all 34 A340s and 13 747-400s were due to leave by the middle of the decade.
