@airwaysmagazine #NEWS | As part of Malaysia Aviation Group’s (MAG) long-term business restructuring plan, subsidiary Firefly (FY) will start operations from the first quarter of 2021. According to the airline, it hopes next year will bring a post-COVID-19 environment.
@ByERussell United does not plan to bring back the #737MAX until at the earliest early-2021, says Nocella. $UAL.
@ByERussell United plans ‘aggressive’ competition on transcons when it returns to New York JFK.
@ByERussell “We have historically been boxed out of places where we want to be bigger or we want to fly,” said Spirit CEO Ted Christie. JetBlue, Southwest and Spirit are among airlines using the COVID crisis to muscle their way into some big airports.
@CamWallace_NZ Sad to see the @VirginAustralia CEO depart. The @FlyAirNZ relationship across the Tasman with VA has had its moments (maybe an understatement) but Paul has been a great bloke to deal with since his arrival at the airline. @andykirton.
