Air China has taken delivery of China's first Airbus A320neo, becoming the first Chinese operator with both the Neo and the Boeing 737 Max in its fleet. It took the Pratt & Whitney PW1100G-powered aircraft from Airbus's Final Assembly Line in Tianjin on 17 November. The aircraft, registered B-8891, is the second A320neo to be delivered from the Tianjin facility. The first, powered by CFM International Leap-1A engines, went to Malaysian low-cost carrier AirAsia in October.
Avolon has finalised an order for 75 Boeing 737 Max aircraft. This comprises 55 Max 8s and 20 Max 10s, as well as options for another 20 Max 8s. The agreement, first announced as a memorandum of understanding at the Paris air show earlier this year, is valued at $11 billion at list prices. "This is the largest single order that we have placed with Boeing to date and underscores the scale of our ambition and the strength of our business," says Avolon chief executive Domhnal Slattery.
Cathay Pacific will introduce high-speed wi-fi to its Boeing 777 and Airbus A330 fleets from mid-2018. This follows the introduction of the service on its Airbus A350-900 fleet. The Hong Kong carrier will adopt Gogo's 2Ku satellite-based broadband inflight connectivity technology. "We envisage that by 2020, all of our widebody aircraft will have inflight connectivity capabilities.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
