@ByERussell AerCap’s $30B acquisition of GECAS is a bet that cost-conscious airlines will be shifting more broadly to leasing aircraft rather than owning after the crisis, writes @munnikrishnan.
@ByERussell “Austin is regularly up there in the top regions for economic growth. It makes sense to invest in this market now, especially when you don’t need your 12 flights to Dallas.”
@ByERussell “I’m sick and tired of receiving aircraft that didn’t work,” Emirates president Sir Tim Clark tells @jonostrower. Clark points a finger at the Boeing board for the planemaker’s commercial aircraft woes.
@ByERussell JetBlue is adding another route in its Connecticut expansion: @Bradley_Airport to Miami on an A320 from June 24. JetBlue will compete with American on the route. $JBLU.
@ByERussell Jetstar will move 6 of the 25 A320s it has in Japan to Australia, the move takes advantage of the stronger Australian domestic market. @lewisharperr.
