@alfredinflight China Airlines and EVA Air reported operating profits for their latest quarterly financial results, placing them among the few airlines to turn a profit during a pandemic-induced economic downturn.
@alfredinflight Remember the ‘Flying-V’ blended wing aircraft concept? Well, a scaled model of the aircraft took off on its first test flight recently. Airbus has also emerged as the latest partner in the project, alongside KLM.
@justinbachman The domestic ticket-change fee is officially dead, in less than 24 hours owing to the threat of a competitive disadvantage. At three airlines that collected a cumulative $2.3 billion in change/cancel fees last year. #COVID19 #airlines #fees
@MaxK_J @GEAviation changes LPT protective coating after 2018 Qantas A330 aerofoil failure, reports @alfredinflight.
@qatarairways By mid-September, we will operate over 650 weekly flights to more than 85 destinations, providing more flexible travel options to more global destinations than any other airline.
