@Tim_the_Pilot BA (not IAG) is profitable because it operates predominantly out of a capacity/slot limited LHR hub where BA alone have about 41% & with Iberia and Aer Lingus added, IAG control about 55% of valuable LHR slots. It also utilises all of Terminal 5 and overspills into Terminal 3.

@UPSAirlines “You know you’re carrying lifesaving equipment down below, and you know it’s going to make a difference to those who need it on the front lines. It’s very humbling.” – @UPS 747 Captain Kelly Lepley.

@winglets747 The French government is requiring Air France to source 2% of its fuel requirements from sustainable sources by 2025.

@winglets747 “This hibernation presents a rare opportunity for deep cleaning and upkeep maintenance of AirAsia’s cabin. “All the removable panels in the cabin will be opened and thoroughly cleaned. The carpet and the curtains will be washed.”

@winglets747 Southwest Airlines has received an initial $428 million cash payment from Boeing as compensation for the 737 MAX.  That’s just over half of the $828m that Southwest estimates it lost in operating profit in 2019 due to the MAX.
