Airbus has increased the average list prices of its aircraft by 3.27 per cent across the product line. The new pricing is effective from January 1st 2015. The 3.27 per cent price increase has been calculated according to Airbus’ standard escalation formula over the January 2014 to January 2015 period, and enables Airbus to continue to enhance its profitability.
The inaugural Airbus A350 revenue service, operated by launch customer Qatar Airways, touched down at Frankfurt airport after a flight from Doha. The 283-seat A350-900 operated Qatar Airways flight QR67 with a scheduled arrival time of 12:30. Its scheduled departure time for the return service – flight QR68 – is 15:25.
Greek carrier Aegean Airlines, which was among the potential bidders for Cyprus Airways, is significantly stepping up flights from Larnaca and Paphos hub following the Cypriot carrier’s collapse. This summer, Aegean will base four Airbus A320s at its Larnaca hub, which it opened four years ago, and step up its Cypriot network to 14 destinations. "I believe that today is the first day of our company’s new course of gradual, but long-lasting growth in Cyprus," Aegean vice-chairman Eftichios Vasilakis said.
Ethiopian Airlines will launch flights between Addis Ababa and Tokyo, via Hong Kong, firming up plans reported by ATW in December 2013. The Star Alliance carrier said it will be the only carrier to link Japan and Africa when it launches the 3X-weekly Tokyo route in April.
Air Europa has placed a follow on order for 14 Boeing 787-9s, valued at $3.6 billion at list prices, taking its total commitment to 22 787-8s and 787-9s. Boeing booked the order from Palma de Mallorca-based Air Europa in December 2014, but it was previously attributed to an unidentified customer.
SkyTeam member Aeroflot has signed an agreement with Sukhoi Civil Aircraft Co. for another 20 Sukhoi Superjet 100s (SSJ100s), which will be operated by the Russian carrier’s regional subsidiaries. This latest agreement increases Aeroflot’s commitment from 30 to 50 SSJ100s, scheduled for delivery by 2017.
Nearly 24 years after the original Eastern shut down on Jan. 18, 1991, the new Eastern Air Lines welcomed home its first new aircraft on Dec. 19. Ex-Kenya Airways Boeing 737-800 "The Spirit of Captain Eddie Rickenbacker," N276EA, arrived from Shannon, Ireland (SNN), via Portsmouth, New Hampshire (PSN), into the airline’s base at Miami International Airport at 3:13 p.m. local time on Runway 8R to a water-cannon salute.
While Malaysia-based low-cost carrier (LCC) AirAsia X may resume flights to European destinations, it would probably not occur for at least another three years, the airline’s CEO says.

Professional Development
Mark is an HR director looking to improve his company’s cross-cultural skills, especially in Germany where his company is doing an increasing amount of business. After considerable research, Mark hires a firm to deliver a training solution that seems like just what the doctor ordered. It’s a tool that enables employees to discover their "cultural profile" and then compare that profile to those from a range of other cultures. The program — which is self-study and available on any digital device — also enables employees to click on a country and learn about its history, values, and cultural "assumptions."
Reading the right book at the right time can be critical to becoming a better boss, writes Michael Hyatt. He highlights 37 books that shaped his leadership. "Some of these books are like roadmaps. Others are like toolkits. But they've all been instrumental in helping me achieve what I have so far," Hyatt writes.
If you’re planning to hire someone, or go on a date with them, or even just want to find out more about who they are, it’s likely that your first move is to Google them. That’s why it’s so critical to take control of our online reputations: "It affects everyone, from you getting employment at a corporation to getting a potential your personal life," says Neil Patel, the co-founder of KISSmetrics and Crazy Egg. Here are the tips he shared about how to create a positive online reputation – and deal with problematic Google results – when I interviewed him for a new Smith College Executive Education online course, "Take Control of Your Online Reputation."
