@ByERussell Alaska Airlines aims to woo more California travellers with a new subscription offering for up to 24 flights a year.
@ByERussell Delta dropped its 2022 aircraft delivery schedule late Friday: 70 aircraft including 11 A220s, 27 A321neos (its first), 9 A330-900s, 4 A350-900s, and 19 used 737-900ERs. $DAL.
@ByERussell Delta also disclosed that it anticipates a 10% equity stake in LATAM Airlines following the South American carrier’s exit from Chapter 11.

@ByERussell Slots at Milan’s Linate Airport would be a big driver in an Air France-KLM bid for ITA. But the group has already acquired some at “no cost” during the pandemic. Air France and KLM will have 8 departures from Linate this June, compared to 3 in 2019.
