@eurocontrolDG Long-haul traffic is recovering! The latest @eurocontrol Comprehensive Assessment shows how over half the top 10 airport pairs are from Heathrow, with LHR-JFK the busiest at 38/day.
@IshrionA Breeze Airways is now offering Airbus A320 flights – to some extent. Startup @globalxairlines is wet-leasing one of its former Alaska Airlines A320s. The contract is for 171 flying hours through June but could be extended.
@lesliejosephs FAA clears service bulletins, allowing United’s 52 PW4000-powered Boeing 777s to return after ~15 month grounding. Big lift ahead of summer travel surge.
@lesliejosephs Getting bumped off your flight is rare but WAY up from Q1 last year: 0.44 per 10,000 passengers vs 0.08. Background on the epic competition for seats this summer. Don’t forget crews are also commuting and deadheading.
@lesliejosephs “I think you’re going to see pilot wage inflation over the next several years” until supply back in balance, JetBlue CEO Robin Hayes says. JetBlue, American, Delta, Alaska, Southwest pilots in talks now. United’s ALPA just announced an agreement in principle for new contract.
