@ByERussell Avelo Airlines strategy of “building out connections that don’t exist by using convenient secondary airports” sounds similar to past failed start ups. The airline launches from Burbank with an initial bevy of 11 routes from April 28.
@ByERussell Makes sense for LATAM to streamline around the 767/787. They have more 787s in their fleet (22 v 10 A350s); the A350 was a legacy TAM order.
@HofmannAviation French leisure carrier Corsair has taken delivery of its first of five @Airbus A330-900. The aircraft is the first A330neo produced by Airbus to feature an increased maximum take-off weight of 251 tonnes.
@jrobinsuk Aircraft are slowly slowly coming back into service, led by A320 and B737 family jets. Widebodies are lagging as long-haul remains grounded. according to @cirium data.
@jrobinsuk .@emirates president Tim Clark says Boeing’s 777 program is in “a state of disarray at the moment”, with deliveries up to five years late – possibly longer. “We should have had the first one in June last year, and so far we have no visibility on when it will arrive”.
