@AeronewsGlobal By the end of this month, @airfrance  will send 3 of its 9 @Airbus  A380s to Tarbes for storage at @TarmacAerosave . F-HPJC will arrive from Abu Dhabi, after maintenance work, while F-HPJA and F-HPJE will arrive from Paris CDG (info via @zeTravelersClub). 

@e_russell American Airlines may be able to begin operations out of the new concourse at @Reagan_Airport  early in January 2021 (that means no more 35X). #DCA.
