@David_Slotnick American Airlines expects capacity to be down 10-12% compared to Q1 2019, versus previous guidance of down 8-10%, citing fuel cost. It also expects increased revenue (read: fares) to make up for fuel expenses, the airline said in an SEC filing.
@David_Slotnick Delta needs to increase fares $15-20 each way to make up for increasing fuel costs, president Glen Hauenstein says at JP Morgan conference. Expects to do that on flights in Q2.
@jonostrower Given Delta’s proclivity for mixed-cabins, the A321neo is an interesting signal about what a 737 Max 10 cabin might look like. Probably looking at 180-185 seats on the slightly-shorter Boeing.
@lesliejosephs American Airlines outgoing CEO Doug Parker reiterates to @CNBC huge rebound in leisure travel demand and plans to hire ~20,000 people this year.
@lesliejosephs United is expecting 18M passengers from March 11-April 24, levels that “will approach pre-pandemic, 2019 levels” and up 70% from last year. $UAL
