@Qantas Welcome to the @Qantas family, Billabong! Our 12th @Boeing  787-9 Dreamliner has arrived, marking the delivery of our first new aircraft in over three years. A further two brand new Dreamliners are set to join our fleet soon, allowing us to further expand our international network, starting with Sydney to San Francisco this month, and Sydney to New York via Auckland in June.

@RoutesEditor Air passenger duty (APD) on UK domestic routes has been cut by a half, which the country’s government hopes will incentivize airlines to expand their networks to “bolster UK connectivity and ensure passengers have access to more affordable flights.”

@WandrMe Airbus updates production rate plans in its Q1 earnings: A220 continuing towards rate 14 by middle of the decade.  A320Family rate 65 by end of 2024, rate 75 in 26. A321XLR EIS is expected to take place in Q2 24. A330 rate 4 in 24 A350 rate 9 end of 25. A350F EIS slips to 26.

@WandrMe Delta wants its Haneda slots to be more flexible. It applied to the DOT to allow it “gateway flexibility” rather than being tied to the 2019 route plans. And it shared some sobering stats on just how depressed the demand is. ATL is best at 64% of 2019 levels. #AvGeek.

@WandrMe Just a few days after FT published this, the US DOT has approved an increase of Chinese flights to the US to 12/week. There is no mention of Russian overflight in the ruling.
