@AviationNews Travel demand is returning “like a fire hydrant”, #Etihad CEO Tony Douglas said at #CAPAsummit. The airline expects to be profitable in the first quarter for the first time in its history.
@ByERussell EasyJet also secured an additional “five aircraft worth of slots in Greece”, which it plans to fly this summer. European discounters are growing rapidly in markets where legacy competitors have shrunk, particularly in Southern Europe.
@ByERussell EasyJet continues to see strong demand for the summer, maintaining plans to fly roughly 2019 capacity levels in the September quarter.
@ByERussell American Airlines has provided an update on Q1. Revenues came in 1 pt better than forecast, capacity on the high end, and both CASM-ex and fuel on the high.
@David_Slotnick Harsh words from @IATA director-general Willie Walsh: “@grantshapps may be the worst transport secretary ever.” Comments at #CAPASummit come in the context of government financial assistance to airlines during the pandemic.
