@gethinsinflight New measures coming in including enforcing Advanced Passenger Information for non UK and Irish citizens entering the U.K. , also a Border Strategy plan in 2025 and more policing and enforcement of immigration, new metrics to monitor success.

@jrobinsuk A few other interesting points from yesterday’s @Ryanair results with O’Leary: *@Boeing is “doing better” on 737 Max production, having “clipped up” the pace in January *Now taking 9 weeks to produce each Max “and may improve to eight-and-a-half,” down from 10. Target is 8.

@jrobinsuk and @Ryanair *Ryanair has resumed talks on Max-10, “but I don’t expect anything coming for the next number of months”. *Sticking point is cost of additional seats which impacts yield and turnaround: “If we got the extra 30 seats for free, we would be ordering all Max 10s going forward”.

@lesliejosephs Delta adds 5 more daily flights to Dallas Love Field with 9/day. Airport is a Southwest stronghold (~97% market share in December) $DAL $LUV . New Delta adds include service from LAX and LGA, previously was just ATL-DAL service.

@lesliejosephs JetBlue CFO Ursula Hurley tells staff that ancillary revenue, “which has a high profit margin – currently stands at more than $50 per Customer.” Airline forecast Q1 loss and full-year profit, first time since 2019. And here’s a very handy cost graphic from $JBLU.
