@hharteveldt .@Delta CEO says blocked middle seats reflects “consumer confidence” about #travel. $DAL would rather keep empty middle seats & add flights than fly fuller planes & make pax uncomfortable/anxious #airline #Earnings.

@SpaethFlies Only eight of 232 @Airbus #A380 delivered are active currently according to @cirium July data published by @FlightGlobal : 2x @emirates , 1x @hifly_airline and 5x @CSAIRGlobal #avgeek.
@winglets747 World’s oldest flying A330 apparently being retired today as Cathay Dragon MSN12 B-HLJ leaves the fleet at 27 years old. It also marks the start of aircraft reduction at Cathay Pacific group.
