@ByERussell Demand is shifting to smaller and medium-sized widebodies (250-300 seat aircraft) and away from large jets, like the A380 and 747, says ALC chairman Steven Udvar-Hazy at the Skift Aviation Forum. This shift began before the pandemic.
@ByERussell “We believe once we get to the other side [of COVID] the roaring 20s of the 2020s” will begin, says Harvey. Now that is optimistic but speaks to the pent up demand airlines’ keep saying they see.
@ByERussell Customers tell Delta that social distancing and cleanliness are the top concerns when they book flights, says chief customer experience officer Bill Lentsch.
@felix_loww .@Lufthansa Group Airlines will leave the premium airlines club and offer the same service as @Ryanair @wizzair @easyJet on shorthaul flights. Buy on board will be introduced in March 2021.
@FlyAirNZ Happy 100th birthday @Qantas! 2020’s been a turbulent ride, especially in aviation, but we know we’ll cross flight paths again sometime soon. Love, your cheeky cousin across the ditch.
