Squawk 7000 News – September 13th, 2021

Tweet Picks:

@AirlineGeeks Airbus had 33 net orders in July and approximately 100 net orders in August. While a far cry from the orders piling in pre-Covid-19, it still is a sign of greater confidence moving forward.

@Airline_Weekly JAL is raising $2.7 billion for its medium-term restructuring plan, a blueprint that focuses on expanding its Jetstar Japan, Spring Airlines Japan and Zipair affiliates.

@ByERussell Australian authorities deny Qantas and JAL’s proposed Australia-Japan joint venture. “Airlines have been severely impacted by the pandemic … But preserving competition between airlines is the key to the long-term recovery of the aviation and tourism sectors.”

@ByERussell Ask startup Fly Play CEO Birgir Jónsson about comparisons to defunct Wow Air, and he says, “in many ways, that’s a great compliment.” Jónsson vows to avoid Wow’s mistakes as Play preps for the “main event” adding U.S. flights next spring.

@ByERussell “It’s so tempting to go get airplanes and then try to find opportunities, and that’s a fatal mistake in any business. You cannot just find the best deal on a great cooking machine and decide to found a restaurant.” – Fly Play CEO Birgir Jónsson.
