@MaxK_J No surprise, but with the latest @Airbus orders data (end-Nov) the #A321neo is now the best-selling #A320neo family member. Thanks to the big Dubai deal and some order swaps, A321neo total orders stand at 3,958, vs 3,748 for A320neo. A320ceo still top, on 4,770.

@MaxK_J UAE-based Vaayu Group is to be first customer for EFW’s A320P2F, leasing up to five from STEAR. EFW A320/A321 P2F incorporates a revised crew-entry door (further forward) allowing maindeck volume and pallet positions to be maximised. A320P2F first flew on 8 Dec, EIS due H1 2022.

@kpottermn American will be the third major US airline with a leadership change through the pandemic. United saw Oscar Muñoz hand over the airline to Scott Kirby in May 2020, and Southwest’s Gary Kelly announced his upcoming exit over the summer.

@lesliejosephs It’s Southwest investor day and airline forecasts some modest 2022 capacity growth -3% to +2% and higher costs vs 2019 but profits. $LUV.

@LuxuryTravelled Breeze is a very interesting concept, filling gaps which might never have been served. The A220 could really be the breakthrough though, opening up so many more options.
