@AeronewsGlobal @lufthansa says its first @BoeingAirplanes 777X will arrive at @Airport_FRA “sometime in the course of next year”.
@AirlineFlyer .@LHTechnik says it is equipping two A321neoLR for the German Armed Forces in 2021. The aircraft can sport 18 different interior configs, up to 163 passengers. They’ll be used for troop transport, medical evac with six ICU patients and more.
@aviationirancom Qatar Airways will operate 21 weekly flights to Tehran as early as next week (17JUL20), which is one more weekly flight than pre-pandemic times. Remarkable, to say the least.
@CamWallace_NZ Good vibe (and wifi) on this morning’s @FlyAirNZ flight to ZQN. Demand has lead us to up-gauge over 100+ flights to the A321. Some directional imbalances at the start of week but generally good loads. Looking forward to touching base with the tourism leaders. @andykirton.
@R_Wall If all goes well, the FAA order that grounded the planes in March of 2019 is expected to be lifted in September.
