@byerussell Delta reduced its daily cash burn in to $27mn/day in June compared to $100mn/day in late March, says Bastian. Most that came from cost savings. $DAL.
@byerussell Delta is working with Airbus to adjust its new aircraft delivery schedule, mostly to push arrivals “to the right,” says CEO Bastian.
@byerussell So JetBlue has wanted to move its Long Beach base to #LAX all along, its SVP of planing Scott Laurence told @crankyflier And maybe the new flights are placeholders for future A220 transcons, maybe.
@ethanklapper Mesa adding two Boeing 737-400Fs to its fleet, will start flying for DHL in October. This has been rumored for a long time (there was talk about them getting the 737-800 freighter contract that Sun Country ultimately picked up).
@LiveFromALounge Huge win for Qatar in the case of the airspace blockade. However, does not mean they can fly through just tomorrow onwards. We still need to see if these countries honour this decision or not.
