@hharteveldt “Headwinds that were so significant during the [Covid] crisis are now tailwinds,” @United Chief Commercial Officer Andrew Nocella $UAL #airline.

@lesliejosephs American is increasing its plans for pilot hiring to ~1,000 next year. In April, the airline was planning to hire 600-700 but demand came back faster than expected. $AAL

@lesliejosephs United, long the conservative in this recovery, plans big ramp-up in flying this summer. Flying is getting more expensive though (for them and you). UA expects 17% increase in costs ex-fuel for 3Q quarter, and fuel of $2.17/gallon vs $2.02 in 3Q19.

@SpaethFlies CEO @airBaltic @Gaussm is frustrated with govmt’s #COVID19 handling: “It’s chaotic what happens in Europe as nobody finds standards, which should be the duty of politics. But I doubt they’ll get there.” #PaxEx.

@theaeronetwork Emirates’ planned service resumption of 6th daily London Heathrow flight is now scheduled from 15OCT21.
