AirAsia X expects to take delivery of its first Airbus A330neo in 2019. The re-engined twinjet's arrival has been "slightly delayed", AirAsia Group chief executive Tony Fernandes tells FlightGlobal. When the carrier placed a tentative order for the A330neo at 2014's Farnborough air show – where the programme was formally launched – AirAsia X envisioned receiving the aircraft in 2018. Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that the carrier has 66 A330-900neos and 10 A350-900s on order.
Latvia's Air Baltic is evaluating additional orders for Bombardier CSeries jets as replacements for Q400 turboprops. At a joint media briefing with Bombardier today at the Paris air show, Air Baltic's chief executive Martin Gauss noted that Q400 leases were nearing the end of their term, and said the airline was discussing with Bombardier a potential order for a mix of CS100s and CS300s to replace the turboprops. There are 12 Q400s in Air Baltic's fleet.
Paris-based aeronautical data specialist Safety Line believes its OptiClimb flight-planning software can cut aircraft fuel consumption during the climb phase by up to 10%. "As a pilot, I had the feeling to do something better during the climb than using the flight management computer," founder Pierre Jouniaux told FlightGlobal in an interview at Le Bourget.
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".
