@byerussell Palm Springs will see Alaska, American, Delta and JetBlue add new routes, and Southwest will add the desert city to its map. “It’s great to see all these new flights because it makes the destination that much more accessible,” says @hharteveldt.
@byerussell Southwest Airlines helps @BWI_Airport dominate DC area as coronavirus shakes up US airports.
@hharteveldt Big news in the world of inflight connectivity (IFC): @INTELSAT to acquire @Gogo’s #airline inflight Wi-Fi unit for US$400 million. I hope they improve Gogo’s reliability.
@hharteveldt No surprise, @AmericanAir & @Delta have matched @united’s decision to end ticket change fees. American has also relaxed certain restrictions on Basic Economy. #travel #airline.
@juliejohnsson Some new detail on @Boeing’s plans to use synthetic airspeed to cross-check its AoAs. That tech will be rolled out and certified in the Max 10. The Max 7 and -8200 (Ryanair’s version) will enter the market as is and be retrofitted later. Via @sidyoutwit.
