@airkarp ICYMI: @GoJet_Airlines will connect the Midwest US to East Coast beach towns this summer using the CRJ-550, the brainchild of GoJet president Rick Leach. The aircraft seats 50 passengers in a 10-20-20 format.

@theaeronetwork Turkish Airlines intends to resume 737 MAX 9 service on 10MAY21 at earliest, as of 12MAR21. In May 2021, 737 MAX 9 scheduled on service to Djibouti, Mogadishu, Nairobi, Odessa.

@vonderleyen Glad to speak to @POTUS @JoeBiden this afternoon. As a fresh start for our Flag of European UnionFlag of United States partnership we agreed to suspend all tariffs related to the Airbus-Boeing disputes on aircraft & non-aircraft products for an initial period of 4 months. We also committed to solving these disputes.

@winglets747 Although Alaska will have fewer mainline aircraft in 2023 versus 2019, it can carry more passengers in 2023 as A319s/A320s (~123-156 seats) are replaced by 737 MAX 9s (178 seats). Up-gauging and fleet simplification.

@winglets747 “BA’s summer network is very different from the pre-2020 pattern, with many more Mediterranean destinations – including a dozen airports in Greece served from Heathrow, an unprecedented number.” (Could stay if slot waivers end?).
