The chief executive of Horizon Air sent a stark email to employees last week expressing disappointment about an ongoing pilot shortage that he describes as derailing the regional carrier's expansion plans. The note, sent on 21 July to all staff by Horizon chief David Campbell, also says the carrier will extend schedule cuts into September, transfer some flying to Alaska Airlines and SkyWest Airlines and take steps to ensure that executives remain accountable.
Bombardier has delivered its first dual-class 86-seat Q400 turboprop, handing over the aircraft to Philippine Airlines on 20 July. PAL became the first customer for the configuration in December 2016 when it signed deals that included firm order for five 86-seat Q400s and purchase rights for an additional seven aircraft. The carrier recently converted those seven options to firm orders at the Paris air show.
The chief executive of Delta Air Lines has unambiguously thrown his support behind a plan to remove US air traffic control (ATC) from the hands of the Federal Aviation Administration, unifying the US industry's support for a major overhaul. "We are huge proponents of the president's agenda to modernise the air traffic control system," Delta CEO Ed Bastian says at the Global Business Travel Association event in Boston on 18 July.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
