@airinsight Dominican Republic start-up @AraJetAirlines orders 20 @BoeingAirplanes MAX 8-200s, plus 15 options. The airline already plans the lease 5 MAX 8s. The order has been listed as ‘undisclosed’ in the January backlog.
@ByERussell “Capacity restrictions required by the cost increase of providing the service, there will be a crowding out of the lower yielding passenger in favour of higher yielding passengers,” says Gol CFO Richard Lark. In other words: Airfares will go up, and that’s what airlines want.
@ByERussell It may seem counterintuitive that high commodity prices could be good for airlines, but in Brazil they are. For Gol that means a potentially strong corporate travel recovery as the big commodity players return.
@lesliejosephs If it gets through the Biden DOJ, Frontier-Spirit merger would create a massive discounter in the sky. That’ll worry rivals that are still w/out biz and long-haul intl demand. Too soon to know if Spirit’s Wu-Tang-yellow planes or Frontier’s animal tails will prevail.
@lesliejosephs Regional carrier Mesa’s revenue comes from flying for larger airlines United and American but it’s investing or working more and more with electric aircraft/drone startups. Latest: seagliders.
