    Airbus delivered its 12,000th aircraft on Monday, an A220-100 for Delta Air Lines.

    The aircraft is the 12th A220 delivered to Delta since the carrier received its first of the type in October 2018. The Atlanta-based airline is the first US carrier to operate the A220 and is the largest customer for the aircraft, with 90 ordered.

    Airbus delivered its first aircraft, an A300 to Air France, in 1974, and its 6,000th aircraft in 2010. Airbus reached the 12,000th delivery just nine years later.us Delivers 12,000th Aircraft To Delta:

  8. A flight from Los Angeles flew dangerously close to a 5,700ft mountain peak after an air traffic controller confused right with left in his instructions.

    The incident occurred when weather around Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) meant flights had to take off heading east rather than travelling west, directly over the Pacific Ocean, as usual.

    The Eva Air Boeing 777 was flying to Taipei, Taiwan, when it was given the erroneous instructions from a controller from Southern California Terminal Radar Approach Control (SCT), an NTSB investigation found.

    The jet was flying at around 6,200ft when it turned and passed worryingly close to Mount Wilson – just 1,600ft to the south.

    Aircraft travelling in the vicinity of the peak, which is 5,700ft, with telecommunications antennae rising to a further 970ft, are required to fly at a minimum altitude of 7,000ft – 800ft higher than EVA015 was travelling at the time.

    “The incident was caused by the air traffic controller assigning the pilots a left turn instead of the required right turn after departure which placed the aircraft in an unsafe proximity with terrain and obstruction,” NTSB said in its report.


  9. Gulf Air offers free extra baggage allowance to university students:

    Gulf Air, the national carrier of the Kingdom of Bahrain, will now offer college and university students traveling with the airline to check in an addition 23-kilogram bag, free of charge.

    A simple process, student passengers will only need to present their student ID cards to the check-in counter agents to benefit from the new policy.

    Previously, such bonus allowances were sanctioned through airline offices and had to confirmed beforehand, often a few days ahead of the trip.

    The move is the latest decision by the carrier to cater to travellers with distinct baggage requirements, such as the recently announced policy for extra allowance for athletes travelling with equipment like golf bags or bicycles.


  10. EVA Air to retire its last Boeing 747-400F freighter in June:

     The last two flights are currently scheduled for June 2 between both Los Angeles and Bangkok and the Taipei (Taoyuan) base.


  11. Air India to operate the Boeing 747-400 on two domestic routes in June

    Air India, with the demise of Jet Airways, is scheduling the Boeing 747-400 on two mainline domestic routes from Delhi during the month of June.

    According to the source, the carrier will assign the Jumbo to two daily routes from Delhi; Kolkata and Mumbai, starting on June 1.

    The Boeing 747-400 fleet is now down to only four aircraft.

    The type is also operated on high-density Hajj pilgrimage charters, mainly between Hyderabad and Jeddah, and between Cochin and Jeddah along with some government charters.

    Air India has not indicated when it plans to retire the last four aircraft.
