@e_russell Airbus ready for strong narrow-body rebound (something Boeing expects too).
@HofmannAviation The surge in demand for cargo services shows no sign of abating since the COVID-19 crisis grounded the vast majority of passenger aircraft and with them their belly capacity.
@WandrMe Hunter Keay kicks off with wondering about whether $LUV should reconsider MAX deliveries given an upcoming glut of “lightly used” NG aircraft. Romo says the company prefers new and is comfortable with the Boeing order book.
@WandrMe Also an opportunity to retire older, less efficient aircraft as needed. Fuel costs are a big factor so the 14% savings from MAX vs NG is still significant enough to justify the investment in new frames. #AvGeek $LUVv.
@winglets747 Most regular commercial aircraft have HEPA filters, too. Restaurants, offices, perhaps less so. Flying is safer and healthier than conventional wisdom suggests.
