@ByERussell American Airlines confirms it will bring back 19,000 furloughed staff following federal aid deal.
@ByERussell “Raleigh is attracting our interest and our capacity because it’s performing well. It’s a standout in a successful region,” JetBlue’s Scott Laurence said on the airline’s @RDUAirport expansion.
@ByERussell “With each delivery, our ownership costs go down, our maintenance costs go down, our fuel costs go down, and the revenue should go up,” Alaska Airlines CEO Brad Tilden told @dominicgates on the carrier’s order for MAXes to replace its A320s.
@LeehamNews This was totally predictable. AirAsiaX had an unsustainable business plan before COVID, overordering A350s and A330neos. It’s been on our watch list for five years.
@TorontoPearson Recently, we co-sponsored a study of international arriving passengers with @AirCanada and McMaster Health Labs. Results show 99% of passengers tested negative for COVID-19. We’re encouraged by the results as testing is an important part of pandemic response. #HealthyAirport.
