@ByERussell Volaris plans LA flights from Mexico City’s new Felipe Angeles airport when the FAA upgrades Mexico’s safety rating.
@ethanklapper American Airlines has already hired 600 new pilots this year, “exceeding our goal,” CEO Robert Isom says. $AAL.
@ethanklapper Delta is finally getting its triangle route. South Africa has approved it after nearly 2 years. Later this year, DL will fly ATL-JNB-CPT-ATL. DL is still pursuing an ATL-CPT nonstop, competing with United (and its proposed IAD-CPT) for route authority.
@lesliejosephs United will *gradually* add back Pratt & Whitney-powered 777s starting May 26 (was last going to be May 13 earliest). There are 52 of these and airline expects 20-something to return by late June.
@PaulByrne66 At Dublin Airport, 6% of slots are trapped or not optimally used due to policy and regulation says Dalton Philips CEO @DublinAirport at @A4Europe.
