Tweet Picks:

@ByERussell “Q4 this year is better than in 2019 for Air France and for KLM. So, pretty strong results,” says Air France-KLM CFO Steven Zaat. The group was cash positive in Q4.

@denschaal This just in. @VirginAtlantic stopped supporting messaging (WhatsApp etc.) as a customer service channel Feb. 18 to prioritize other channels. #virginatlantic #airlines #customerservice #message #flights

@ethanklapper Delta owns 52,000,995 shares of Wheels Up (valued at $241.3 million) and 8,277,958 shares of CLEAR (valued at $259.7 million), per new filing with the SEC. $DAL.

@hharteveldt .@BreezeAirways to open new crew base at @Bradley_Airport   (its fifth), adding 8 new destinations to 4 currently served. Won’t be surprised if the #airline adds nonstop transcon flights from BDL.

@hharteveldt On press call about the Frontier-Spirit merger, the airlines tout combined schedules as better for consumers. Ex: BWI-MCO…2  Frontier flights + 3 Spirit flights =5. I’m sceptical. NK & F9 will rationalize schedules & capacity. 1+1 doesn’t always equal 2 in airline mergers.
