@BagherpourAbbas In a cordial & fruitful meeting with @AHoensbroech we discussed situation of passenger flights affected by Covid-19 & agreed to jointly work so as @_austrian that has had flights to Iran since 1984, resume its flights very soon. Now @IranAir_IRI has direct flights every Saturday.
@CameronSperance .@United CEO on why the airline isn’t looking for growth opportunities: “It’s an apocalyptic environment for airlines and aviation right now. Chasing market share right now just seems like a way to burn cash.” #skiftforum.
@lowrytom .@jlgeraghty of @JetBlue tells @sean_oneill that airline’s decision to expand network (@flyLAXairport , for example) was the right move, but will proceed cautiously. Skift Global Forum #skiftforum.
@rafat Delta CEO Ed Bastian speaking now at #skiftforum now, says he doesn’t expect Delta to become a smaller airline going ahead. He thinks this is a two year journey, not five as others are saying. He doesn’t regret smaller business travel sector.
@rafat JetBlue President/COO Joanna Geraghty at #skiftforum on launching 54 new routes in this pandemic: we’re trialing & testing, we have benefit of being smaller airline, we also benefit from being a leisure airline. Newark has been hugely successful for us as well.
