I'm wondering how weak airlines are going to re-emerge post-Covid. Airlines that were generating profits will probably recover, but there are lots of airlines in the region which were really struggling before the crisis. Are governments just going to pour more money into operates like Camair? And th...Jump to post
I think airlines like Air Senegal are going to have problems. Pre-covid I assume they did well because there wasn't enough competition between CDG and points in far West Africa. Now, instead of too little competition there is too few passengers. What does Air Senegal do that Air France & the sma...Jump to post

The government of Senegal is throwing a lot of money at Air Senegal. This article (in French), apparently an opinion piece, seems to indicate that the state is going to put more than $72m into Air Senegal. Astounding.

DY shares are down sharply today. Is there something going on?

ET has the fleet and the flexibility to be able to handle it. In today's situation, almost every airline has the flexibility to do such flights, looking at all the airline fleets sitting idle these days so this flexibility isn't anything unique to ET alone. A388 And thus the question would be, why ...Jump to post

I think in an all-economy seating the A220-300 has about 150 seats at 32" pitch? Is this right?
Do we have an idea how many more seats the A220-500 would perhaps have?
or maybe i am getting ahead of even airbus in this thinking?

Regarding RwandAir at COO, flying to it 3x per week with a stop in Cameroon is hardly a hub, yet. They have been talking about it for a while.
