@ByERussell Air Canada expects by “September or October we’ll start to see some positive signs” in the business travel recovery, says Guillemette.As with Canada’s leisure travel recovery, business travel is several months (at least) behind the U.S. recovery.
@ByERussell Alaska will “temporarily” reactive 10 A320s to fly this fall/winter to meet demand, said Minicucci. These planes will be replaced with #737Max by 2023.
@ByERussell With new Max deliveries and the 10 reactivated A320s, Alaska could fly as much as 8% more capacity in Summer 2022 compared to 2019, said commercial chief Andrew Harrison. $ALK.
@ByERussell Southwest expects business travel back to ~50% of 2019 levels by end-Q3, says Nealon. $LUV.
@scottiebateman This entire situation is utterly ridiculous and means that U.K. pilots are now not eligible to fly European airlines based in U.K. without significant cost. A prime example would be the recent advert by LaudaAir for Luton based pilots who must have an EU license. #SortItShapps.
