3 Links I Love: LOT of Trouble, Tecnam Time, Cathay’s Unenviable Position

Cape Air, Links I Love, LOT Polish, Lufthansa

This week’s featured link

Lufthansa will Verträge mit Condor auslaufen lassenHandelsblatt
What, you don’t speak German? Neither do I, but that’s why Google Translate is my friend. Basically, this says that Lufthansa is going to let its agreements with Condor expire when they’re up. That’s somewhat surprising to me. After all, new owner LOT isn’t exactly an enemy. If Lufthansa wants to put the squeeze on LOT by stopping work with Condor, then that could be the kind of thing to drive LOT into the arms of someone else, if anyone else is interested. At this point, LOT may just be scrapping to survive the coronavirus demand drop.

Two for the road

Onboard Cape Air’s all-new Tecnam Traveller to NantucketTPG
It’s not often that we get to see a new small airplane inducted into commercial service, so this is really exciting. Or maybe I’m just a big dork. Either way, take a look at the new airplane that Cape Air will be flying around.

  1. Yes, the Tecnam Traveller entering service is exciting AND you’re a big dork. Those things aren’t mutually exclusive.

  2. “It is bad for airlines all over the world right now, but still, none would want to trade places with Cathay Pacific.”

    Flybe would…

  3. Booked a flight on Cape Air STL-MWA(Marion/Herrin, Ill) on 3/16/20. Basically a “3 Hour Tour” as their booking system would not let me return on the same flight back to STL. But if I booked two separate one-way tickets the cost was more. So I sit in MWA for like 90 minutes or so and spent a whopping $74 R/T. NEW PLANE SMELL!
