@airlinewriter Major US #airlines say they’ll start asking passengers on flights to the US for contact-tracing info and give it to CDC. Passenger’s name, phone number, email and address or where they’re staying in US.
@AmericanAir The U.S. is committed to the Paris Climate Accord, and we are committed to helping achieve its goals. We have a plan to be net zero by 2050, and we’re ready to do our part to address this pressing global challenge.
@ByERussell Air France-KLM is optimistic that the roll out of Covid vaccines will “permit a positive evolution of the situation” by summer, says CFO Gagey. But the airline remains “extremely cautious” on the first quarter, when it plans to fly just 40% of Q1 2019 capacity.
@ByERussell In 2020, American Airlines retired 95 mainline aircraft (A330s, 757s, 767s and E190s) and took delivery of 30 aircraft (A319s, A321neos, 737-8s and 787-s) for a net 65 aircraft reduction. $AAL.
