Tweet Picks:

@byerussell Delta, United to double China flights – though the number remains far, far below the pre-pandemic up to 52/day – under new US-Sino accord.

@JohnLStrickland No doubt @airbus #A321XLR creates new route opportunities & helps #airline economics but with long haul low cost reliant on price as primary mechanism, hard to stack up against high ownership/lease costs of new #Aircraft.

@jonostrower NEWS: Boeing, in announcing an order for 2 737 Max aircraft from Enter Air, officially drops the ‘Max’ moniker from the jet’s variant branding. The aircraft family is still the Max, but Boeing calls the model the 737-8 for the first time in a deal announcement.

@MaxK_J Clark cautious on #B777-9 certification as Emirates awaits schedule clarity #777X.

@SkyNews “This is holding back the UK recovery.” Heathrow Chief Executive John Holland-Kaye says the government ‘needs to act now’ to allow #COVID19 testing for passengers as an alternative to quarantining in order to kickstart the UK economy
