Tweet Picks:

@RunwayGirl Delta absorbs order for 10 Airbus A350 jets cancelled by Latam: sources | via @Reuters.

@winglets747 A key question is how much of a gap there will be between accelerated retirements and deferred deliveries.

@winglets747 Finnair and Juneyao aim to establish a joint-venture for the Shanghai-Helsinki route they both fly. This won’t be the typical JV where traffic is mostly local between the countries.

@winglets747 Perspective: some aircraft retirements are a small acceleration (Air France’s A340s were going to leave in 1Q2021). Some retirements were already planned: British Airways expected to remove 7x 747s this year. Iberia would retire 6x A340-600s this year.

@winglets747 What approval is needed to make a hybrid freighter? There isn’t a global one. Boeing issued a No Technical Objection: “This NTO does not represent or imply formal Boeing approval or certification. The [airline] operator retains the final responsibility.”
