We welcome the new President of the ITAA – Paul Hackett
@ByERussell “In my 30 years in this industry — post-9/11, post-Gulf War — there has never been a growth opportunity in front of Ryanair such as we have at the moment.” – O’Leary. Ryanair plans to win the European travel recovery with massive growth.
@ByERussell “If the price is right, we’re interested,” Ryanair CFO Neil Sorahan told @conorhumphries on a possible 737 Max 10 order.
@ByERussell more on JetBlue’s E190 plans: it will keep the 30 it owns to capitalize on NEA opportunities for the foreseeable future, says CFO Ursula Hurley. The 30 E190s it leases will return as scheduled from 2023-26, she added. $JBLU.
@ByERussell Southwest CFO Tammy Romo said it’s fair to assume that the airline will likely exercise is 44 737 Max options in 2022. They could be used for growth or retiring older 737s. “There’s a strong ROI on those options.” $LUV.
@ByERussell “We do intend to keep a bigger footprint in some of these leisure markets going forward,” says United commercial chief Nocella. He names Florida as a leisure market where the airline was “undersized” pre-crisis. $UAL.
