@ethanklapper New from Delta: “Delta has decided to retire the company’s Boeing 717-200 aircraft and the remainder of its 767-300ER aircraft by December 2025 and its CRJ-200 aircraft by December 2023, earlier than previously scheduled.”
@robertcourts Today, @ZeroAvia launched the first ever hydrogen-electric flight! This is a leap in innovation for the UK’s world-leading aviation industry and a huge breakthrough in #SustainableTravel, as part of the Government’s commitment to a #ZeroEmission future.

@WandrMe US airlines holding slots for limited access international markets can keep them suspended through 27 March 2021 without losing them. But if they don’t restart on the 28th they are considered dormant under the 90-day rule and subject to forfeit.
@winglets747 Pennsylvania was on some pre-Covid lists as the largest area without a non-stop flight to greater China. That was based on passengers with a top-up from cargo. In 5, 10 years – does this prove an interesting experiment?.
