@WandrMe Interesting bit on the ownership of Arajet: “Entities under common control with Hulansera, S.L. (indirect owner of 80% of the common stock of ARAJET) own 31% of the common stock of Virgin Australia Airlines Pty Ltd, and 17.2% of the common stock of Icelandair Group Hf.”

@WandrMeJetBlue adds a platform for pax “to estimate the CO2 emissions of their flights and then address these emissions by contributing to a fund dedicated to covering the cost premium of SAF as compared to conventional jet fuel.”  I get it; SAF is expensive, so pax paying helps.

@WandrMe More A350s and 787s coming to Lufthansa Group, while the 744s, A340s, A332s, 763s, and 772s start their march to retirement.  The 10 A350-1000s ordered are a first for the Group, and will include F cabins.

@WandrMe Picking this back up 33 months later, United will return the HKG-SIN Fifth Freedom Frequencies to the DOT for reallocation. “Given the improved COVID situation in Singapore and Hong Kong, United no longer plans to operate 5th freedom services between the two points.”

@WandrMe The first two 787s to be scrapped are now being stripped down and parted out by EirTrade. Interestingly, the work is not happening at the company’s main facility in Knock, Ireland, but in Prestwick.
