@ByERussell .@AlaskaAir filed its first #737MAX 9 flights tonight. First routes are SEA-LAX/SAN and PDX-LAX on March 1. First departure is AS1041 SEA-LAX at 07:15 followed by AS482 SEA-SAN, according to Cirium. $ALK.

@ByERussell Mesa Air Group reports a rare full year (ending in Sept) net profit of $27.5mn during the coronavirus crisis. As a regional airline, Mesa benefits from fixed contracts with American and United that guarantee it a stable revenue stream.

@ByERussell “Plan A is to be an all-Boeing customer,” says Southwest CEO Kelly. “As long as we can get to where we need with the MAX 7, I think we’re good.” I’ll say it again: a follow-on MAX order from Southwest is Boeing’s to lose (to the Airbus A220).

@ByERussell Southwest aims to return the #737MAX to service “no later than early April,” says CEO Kelly. If we beat that, I’d be delighted.” $LUV.

@CAPA_Aviation .@SunCountryAir  CEO Jude Bricker: “Domestic leisure is by far the best performing segment of US passenger demand today and that’s the predominance of our business, so we feel pretty good today.” #CAPALive.
