@AirCanada We completed our 1,000th cargo-only flight during the COVID-19 pandemic, from Toronto-Shanghai. Since March 22, Air Canada Cargo has moved 15.3 million kgs, equivalent in weight to 95 Boeing 777s, of essential goods, from PPE, fresh produce and medicine across Canada & the world.
@CamWallace_NZ More progress this week with @FlyAirNZ demand growing, especially on leisure based routes. Team are looking at additional sectors for Queens Bday weekend (we could still keep that holiday if we were a republic). Some domestic lounges re-open 25 May. @andykirton.
@HardeepSPuri Domestic civil aviation operations will recommence in a calibrated manner from Monday 25th May 2020. All airports & air carriers are being informed to be ready for operations from 25th May. SOPs for passenger movement are also being separately issued by @MoCA_GoI.
@juliejohnsson It could be a very ugly ending for the #A380. @Emirates wants to cancel five of its final deliveries, potentially leaving Airbus with white tails — and ballooning inventory costs. #Scoop via @layenmazenodeh @sidyoutwit #avgeek.
@npatelrocks Replying to @AirlineFlyer , @airfrance and @Airbus Boeing has not done much right lately, but the bet Boeing made years ago of developing the 777 instead of a super jumbo like A380 turned out to be the right one. Will likely be studied in B Schools for years to come. #avgeeks #avgeek.
