@AirlineFlyer .@AmericanAir confirms that it will co-locate with @British_Airways in @HeathrowAirport T5 with for up to 11 daily flights starting March 27. AA is moving flights from DFW LAX MIA and JFK to T5 through Oct 30. BOS CLT ORD PHL PHX RDU remain at T3.
@ByERussell “Boeing does not have an aircraft, in our judgment, that’s competitive with the A321neo,” says Hazy. Mid-market shade, anyone?.
@ByERussell “It is not a wage issue, there is a shortage of pilots,” says Waltzing Matilda Aviation CEO John Thomas at #ISTATAmericas. Thomas expects it will take ~2 years for the U.S. to work through the Covid pilot retirements.
@ByERussell Russian airlines are “kind of between a rock and a hard place. There aren’t any aircraft made in Russia over 100 seats,” says ALC Executive Chairman Steven Udvar-Hazy. More than 90% of the Russian commercial fleet are Airbus and Boeing jets, he adds.
