IATA bulletin regarding on-board service during COVID 5.8.1 is a good read. Airlines are following this guidance it seems.

Re: The WestJet Thread

I’m hearing that there is great concern amongst employees that the new ownership is using the Covid19 situation as the added leverage and excuse needed to force some major changes. The “Swoopification” of WestJet?

Re: Cathay ending YVR-JFK service

A YVR to USA pre-cleared red-eye is not possible for anyone unfortunately as I believe US Customs and hence pre clearance closes at or just before 2100.

Re: Should airline regulators consider grounding B737 MAX series

Given the social media hysteria based on speculation and fear I fail to understand why there are no calls for the worldwide 767 fleets to be grounded seeing as the cause of the Atlas Air accident is not yet known?
