@GuillaumeFaury Thank you Bernard Ziegler, Airbus owes you so much. One of the main inspirations behind our Fly-By-Wire aircraft, from the A320 to the A380, a true pioneer and a great visionary leader.
@lesliejosephs With international travel still down, American and Delta are putting their biggest jets to work in the U.S. Normally, that would be like “buying a Porsche to drive it to church on Sundays,” AA’s network planning Brian Znotins says.
@lufthansaNews “We want to further expand our global leadership role, among other things, with cutting-edge premium products & a state-of-the-art fleet – especially because we have a responsibility to the environment”, says Lufthansa Group CEO #CarstenSpohr.
@LuxuryTravelled Its interesting generally, IAG’s focus as a group has now focused on leisure…Level is launching Barcelona to Cancun starting July.
@LuxuryTravelled Ryanair is clearly placing a large bet on Greece this summer (for international travellers), and domestic Italy.
