@jaredbkeller The military’s Blue Angels and Thunderbirds flyovers aren’t what America needs right now.
@rschuur_aero Dutch minister not ruling out (partial) state bail out of @KLM , but this is something to be discussed later. It also depends on position other shareholders. @Delta said this week it isn’t willing to invest extra in any of its partners.
@WandrMe Another airline joins the #CovidCombi cargo ranks. Icelandair will convert three of its passenger 767s to cargo operations by removing seats from the cabin. Presumably tails O/P/W as N has been grounded while the others fly cargo, but details TBD. cc @talkairlines.
@winglets747 China’s air travel rebound is a staircase. Increase flights then wait for volume, yield and load factors to nudge up. Then add more flights. Most data about China’s recovery is based on capacity. Headlines about jumps in seats, then headlines about no growth.
@winglets747 IATA did not poll a single person in a country that has broken the curve and is resuming normal life. Your views when things are not under control are very different from when matters are under control.
