托莱多是美国第一个因飞行员短缺而失去航空服务的城市

2小时前

俄亥俄州托莱多市不幸地成为美国第一个因 pilot shortage.

一位发言人周四证实,美国航空公司将于9月7日终止从芝加哥奥黑尔飞往托莱多的航班,理由是“地区飞行员人员短缺”。随着美国航空公司的离开,托莱多将失去其与全球航空网络的唯一联系——换句话说,不再有与洛杉矶、纽约或东京的一站式航班联系。Allegiant Air将继续为托莱多提供服务,但折扣店为那些只想去奥兰多或凤凰城,而不想去更远地方的休闲旅行者提供服务。

自美国航空公司去年开始报告飞行员短缺以来,其他机场已经失去了航空服务。然而,他们都失去了一家网络运营商, primarily United Airlines, or nonstop flights but retained other air service. In addition, the 29 airports that SkyWest Airlines is exiting are all part of the U.S. government’s essential air service program that mandates a replacement — like Southern Airways Express — be found before SkyWest ends flights.

Toledo is a unique case. Long the headquarters for Jeep, it is sandwiched between two much larger airports: Detroit at just over an 1 hour distant and Cleveland two hours away, according to Google Maps. So the loss of American is not a huge blow in the scheme of things but, with regional pilot costs rapidly rising, it hints at things to come.

德国的德国铁路将运行比2019年更多的夏季列车

5天前

为了应对强劲的需求,德国客运铁路运营商德国铁路公司(Deutsche Bahn)今年夏天将运营比疫情爆发前更多的长途列车。

据报道,DB将提供比2019年夏季多20%的座位 said Saturday. The increase is both from operating more trains, and from the introduction of more “extra-large” ICE high-speed trains that seat roughly 1,000 passengers each.

(Georg Wagner/DB AG)

The extra long-distance trains come as Germany anticipates record transport ridership this summer under the three-month “9 euro ticket,” or pass, that covers all regional and suburban trains. In May, the head of DB’s long-distance rail division Michael Peterson said ridership that month was roughly 5 percent higher than in 2019.

“This summer, the desire to travel is greater than ever,” Peterson said in a statement Saturday.

JetBlue-Spirit Merger Chances Improving: Analyst

6天前

A new report from J.P. Morgan analyst Jamie Baker sees the likelihood of a merger between JetBlue Airways and Spirit Airlines improving. The comments come days after JetBlue improved its offer for Spirit by more than $150 million, and the latter delayed a key shareholder vote on a merger — either with Frontier Airlines or JetBlue — by three weeks to June 30.

“We believe some merger involving Spirit is a high probability outcome,” Baker wrote Thursday. “We also believe a merger outcome between Spirit and JetBlue is a growing probability and may overtake the likelihood of a Frontier deal.”

JetBlue is offering Spirit shareholders $31.50 per share that totals roughly $3.4 billion. The offer includes a $1.50 per share prepayment of a $350 million break up fee in the event U.S. regulators do not approve the deal. Frontier is offering Spirit investors the equivalent to $2.9 billion in cash and stock.

On June 6, following receipt of JetBlue’s improved offer, Frontier declined to raise its bid for Spirit, Securities & Exchange Commission filings show.
