@AirlineFlyer Whattt. Qatar, much Iike Delta, just finished refurbishing that entire fleet with new business class and Wi-Fi. I have a hard time accepting this move is purely a “green” play.
@e_russell American and United say they are still evaluating the impact of CT/NJ/NY’s quarantine for people coming from 9 states with rising COVID case counts, no schedule changes – yet.
@e_russell “Introducing a quarantine is equivalent to a full travel ban,” says IATA chief economist Brian Pearce during the organization’s latest COVID-19 briefing.
@e_russell “There are some who say travel will be changed or reduced forever, I fully disagree… [But] flying is freedom and travel is freedom. That’s not something people forget or lose their desire for,” says IATA director general Alexandre de Juniac.
@e_russell “We saw our sales nearly double when we announced masks,'” says Frontier Airlines CEO Barry Biffle. He’s unequivocal on this point: if you’re going to fly Frontier, you better wear mask.
