@RWMann Replying to @lesliejosephs Demand, with business travel down 80%, is so far out of equilibrium that down-gauging capacity doesn’t work, so roll out the widebody jets, open the leisure fare buckets equally wide, and promote, promote, promote, like cutting cash burn depends on it.
@SeanM1997 Flybe have acquired 86 weekly slots at London Heathrow from British Airways – these are listed for a Dash-8 (78 seat) aircraft with Edinburgh listed with 50x weekly (5x daily) and Aberdeen listed with 36x weekly (3x daily flights).
@simonasbartkus .@British_Airways is launching flights from @HeathrowAirport to @riga_airport. Seasonal 3x weekly route from July 2 to September 26. An airline will try to catch some leisure demand before @airBaltic will push them out.
@simonasbartkus Having in mind @airBaltic track record for giving hard time to all foreign carriers trying to enter @riga_airport I will not be surprised if the Latvian carrier will take a temporary slot in @HeathrowAirport for a year to operate some flights RIX-LHR.
@theaeronetwork Emirates has accelerated planned Airbus A380 service resumption to New York JFK (as well as overall to US) to 01JUN21, instead of 01JUL21.
