@IATA It’s now or never for the Single European Sky! We desperately need vital air traffic management reforms proposed by the @EU_Commission to be accepted to help rebuild the economy and cut emissions by 10%. #EUGreenDeal #WeAreAviation.
@jrobinsuk .@AirFrance KLM chief exec Ben Smith says the carrier hopes to operate at least 50% capacity this summer, although currently they “still have a relatively low level of activity.” Trend towards last-minute bookings means carrier is being “quick and flexible” with network planning.
@jrobinsuk .@easyJet chief exec expects majority of European countries to be placed on UK’s ‘green list’, allowing passengers to travel from May 17: “I would expect all major EU countries should be in that category.”
@jrobinsuk .@emirates president Tim Clark raises further problems with @Boeing 777X delivery schedule, cites regulatory issues: “Already we’ve learnt that some of the systems have not met the EASA expectations and therefore they are going to need to be changed, so I’m told”.
@lesliejosephs United’s CEO expects fixes on 17 Boeing 737 MAX planes grounded for electrical issue to be “addressed and the planes back in service” by end of the month. $UAL $BA.
