@ByERussell “I think it’d be a horrible idea for a lot of reasons,” says Delta CEO Ed Bastian on the possibility of mandatory Covid-19 testing before domestic flights. Joining the likes of unions, the CEOs of American and Southwest, A4A… @DawnGilbertson.
@ByERussell Sun Country’s deal to fly 12 737 freighters for Amazon was, unsurprisingly, a bright spot in 2020. Cargo brought in $17.5mn in entirely new revenue for Sun Country during the first nine months of 2020. This will grow as the Amazon business only began flying in May. $SNCY.
@ByERussell Mesa Airlines disclosed some of the new shareholdings in Archer Aviation, the eVTOL manufacturer that United Airlines has partnered with. United has warrants for 14.6mn shares of Archer common stock, of which Mesa has a warrant to acquire 2.9mn shares. $MESA $UAL.
@ByERussell United has a surprisingly ambitious timeline of flights with greensheet eVTOL aircraft by 2024, especially considering Tecnam’s “well before… 2035” timeline for its electric conversion of the Traveller, the P-VOLT. @jonostrower.
@CAPA_Aviation .@airBaltic CFO Vitolds Jakovlevs: The A220 aircraft is “very much designed for this particular region” with lower traffic density. “We’re happy with our choice” and “we’re getting much more positive feedback on these aircraft overall”. #CAPALive.
