@e_russell Australian regional carrier REX plans to add jets (A320s or 737s) and compete with Qantas and Virgin on trunk routes, via @pwhatch.
@e_russell The Queensland government is considering a bid for Virgin Australia (the airline is based in Brisbane, the capital of Queensland).
@e_russell The U.S. shows its CARES, eases airline air service requirements slightly, with @zlwichter.
@Tim_the_Pilot Manchester has a huge local market, two runways, is just completing a large redevelopment of Terminal 2 and yet BA pulled off its last MAN longhaul route (MAN-JFK) in Oct 2008. It refuses to invest in the gateway to the ‘Northern Powerhouse’.
@Tim_the_Pilot When BA’s London City (LCY) and London Gatwick (LGW) operation is added, BA and IAG are one of the biggest single operator in the whole London area. easyJet & Ryanair at LGW, Luton and Stansted provide it’s main ‘domestic’ completion, keeping it competitive in shorthaul.
