@CamWallace_NZ @FlyAirNZ  is working with the NZ Govt on a number of repatriation flights for kiwis who are currently based in India. @andykirton.

@fg_domperry Italian firm Avio Interiors has proposed some solutions for #airlines airlines once #coronavirus flight restrictions are lifted – the Janus (the middle seat in a row of three is reversed) and the Glassafe screen for existing seats. The future? Anything seems possible at present.

@jonostrower The airplane of the future isn’t the 787 or A321XLR, it’s the CRJ200 and ERJ-145.

@realBobbyHealy Oil at $1 a barrel? I’m starting an airline. Oh wait.

@SpaethFlies Another daunting non-stop this time westbound from @SydneyAirport  this week after @_austrian did VIE-SYD before will be
