@AirbusPRESS Airbus logs first 2022 order: 22 #A220 (including 2 #ACJTwoTwenty) for @AzorraAviation.
@ByERussell Another move to capture more of the corporate travel market from Southwest Airlines: Flights are now available on Kayak for Business. $LUV.
@ByERussell Boeing delivered 340 commercial aircraft in 2021. An increase from 2020, but just over half of the 611 Airbus delivered. $BA.
