@Airbus Airbus logged 4 new orders in July 2020 taking the net orders for 2020 to 302 jets. As for deliveries, our global teams handed over 49 #A220 & #A320 Family aircraft to 27 customers worldwide.
@BoeingAirplanes Our newest #ecoDemonstrator jet just got a fresh coat of paint. This 787-10 Dreamliner will be delivered to @etihad later this year, after helping us test technologies that enhance safety and reduce fuel use, emissions and noise.
@byerussell Fascinating. How the debtor-in-possession financing for LATAM lined by by the Cuetos and Qatar Airways leaves a backdoor for Delta to come in and participate (h/t @jonostrower).
@CPHAirports 565,910 passengers travelled through Copenhagen Airport in July. This is 81.8 percent fewer than in July of last year. Travel patterns have also changed drastically. Norway has taken over from the UK and London as the biggest destination out of Copenhagen.
@dominicgates Boeing 737 MAX cancellations continue as airline downturn shuts off jet orders. So far this year, the firm MAX backlog has shrunk by 864 aircraft: 416 MAXs have been outright canceled and an additional 448 removed from the backlog as no longer certain.
