After months of speculation @SNCF will use brand name Ouigo for its foray into the Spanish market. @SRapebach_SNCF via @BTUK https://t.co/eg1l0GPalW

Following the additional travel restrictions imposed by the governments of the countries in which Thalys operates, #Thalys will adapt its offer to 40% of its usual capacity from October 1st. https://t.co/RJCDnCHtn5

Thalys will cut capacity from October. But schedule reductions are not as brutal as the cuts seen at Eurostar (to whom Thalys will merge in 2021). https://t.co/I3IBd0JAQR

SNCF will brand its low-cost TGV in Spain as Ouigo (the same as in France). Via @SRapebach_SNCF https://t.co/KSTP4tIMq3

#Lufthansa nimmt #Airbus #A380 aus der Planung - noch ist es aber kein definitiver Abschied. https://t.co/eFEzV9Iu0A

.@lufthansa will give its remaining A380s another "mini chance." via @aeroTELEGRAPH It had been thought the carrier would announce they were to be withdrawn. [DE] https://t.co/3XF4v4FNik

#Covid_19 continues to wreck havoc on international air travel and long haul fleets. All @lufthansa #A380's and 10 #A340-600's will be found in long term storage for the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, 7 #A340-600's will be decommissioned 💔 #AvGeek https://t.co/nWlFs0KE4J

BREAKING @lufthansa puts eight remaining @Airbus #A380 into long term storage instead of finally axing them already now. "Only in the case of unexpectedly quick market recovery" they would be ever flying again for the airline #avgeek photo Sebastian Thoma https://t.co/hP2Q7Z32iA

This was the headliner of the @lufthansa staff paper just ten years ago. Today it could be “Shame, the #A380 is gone” #avgeek https://t.co/aCK58onHWI

Domestic routes at London City are much slower to recover with Glasgow & Edinburgh down 94%. Only 100 passengers flew between the airport and Teesside in August. https://t.co/NHkP161yl9

No wonder @EasternAirways transferred its MME flights from @LondonCityAir to @HeathrowAirport where there are more opportunities for connex. https://t.co/Umsv6J2jCu

Good news for A380 fans. @emirates says it will remain its flagship for the next 10 years. [DE] via @airliners_de [partial paywall] https://t.co/8f38p0hagE

People Express was the first low-cost transatlantic scheduled operator to follow Laker's Skytrain. Its LGW-EWR service was akin to @Fly_Norwegian 's LGW-JFK (pre-Covid). https://t.co/OnjpwntlAR

FYI @AndyBTravels @philrichardsuk @VernonBaseley @jonworth I like many others I overly concentrated on the effects for aviation. But T/L's example shows how much it has been affected by rail (especially in UK).

Quoted @Ogilvie_CJ

Ticket sales on Trainline slumped after the lockdown caused huge declines in rail travel. The online ticketing company said UK sales had fallen to £241 million in last 6 months, down 85% on 2019. International sales hit 45% of 2019 at £117m https://t.co/YHrjhgUrQe

Crikey. With so much aviation talk we overlook what traffic decline has meant for rail agents. https://t.co/IrkVLWLKra

Possibly a first for a domestic route inside Europe as @Alitalia trials Covid-tested flights for FCO-LIN. @TheLocalItaly @BTUK https://t.co/JdpGPxENp9
