The Business – IATA DG Willie Walsh
@ByERussell “Across the industry, I believe staffing challenges will result in downward pressure on capacity and therefore be positive on fares,” says Sun Country CEO Jude Bricker during Q4 call. The pilot (and technician) shortage is real and slowing the recovery. $SNCY.
@ByERussell Breeze Airways hints at routes to “somewhere with gambling” out west for future A220 routes, via @WandrMe.
@ByERussell “It seems crazy that a 300-hour [first officer] can land a Lufthansa A350 into JFK flying over Queens, and a U.S. pilot can’t do the same thing.” Mesa Airlines CEO blames the 1,500 hour rule for the U.S. pilot shortage, via @munnikrishnan.
@ByERussell As Sun Country CEO Bricker put it, the combined Frontier-Spirit will have little presence in Minnesota. The airlines will fly 3.2% of seats at @mspairport in February per Cirium, that leaves them in the no. 6 position at the airport compared to Sun Country’s no. 2.
@ByERussell “Minnesota hasn’t been very successful for them, and I don’t think that changes for them,” says Sun Country CEO Bricker on the proposed Frontier-Spirit merger. He is unconcerned about the potential transaction. $SNCY
