Six West Q&A with Matthew Gee & Aine Scully

@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
@EGYPTAIR doing SYD-CAI on the #787-9. Scheduled flight time 17:55! #avgeek @routesonline.
