@hharteveldt In response to question about “decommoditizing travel, “united says there is room for two “premium” airlines in the UA (the other being @delta). The UA-DL battle for the premium traveller will be fun to watch. $UAL $DAL #paxex #airline.
@WandrMe Major domestic UK expansion for @easyJet this summer. Part of this is backfilling where Stobart operated. But a lot of it is taking advantage of domestic tourism demand as border reopening remains unclear.
@winglets747 Porter may try to fill the void from Air Canada and WestJet’s capacity cuts. Those reductions were from retiring older aircraft, whose low ownership costs provided cheap growth. But Porter will invest in brand new E2s.
@winglets747 Porter selected the A220/CSeries long ago, but went with the competing Embraer E2. Porter said one factor was the E2 having more available delivery slots.
@winglets747 Switching from an A319ceo to an A321neo gives United 55% more seats but with only a 13% increase in total costs.
