Air Berlin has been forced to cancel more than 110 flights today after pilots called in sick. The Oneworld member says it normally operates 750 flights a day but had to make cancellations because around 200 of its 1,500 pilots had declared themselves unfit to fly.
Lufthansa will terminate its flights to Qatar in October. The Star Alliance carrier operates a daily service to Doha from Frankfurt via Kuwait, FlightGlobal schedules data shows. "Despite substantial sales efforts, this route was found to be commercially not viable," Lufthansa says. It adds that the stopover in Kuwait was introduced in 2016 after "unsatisfactory commercial development of the route over the past few years". The airline started serving Doha in 1993.
KLM's focus for its digital strategy is to build its presence on existing social media platforms, rather than developing bespoke and exclusive apps, chief executive Pieter Elbers has indicated. Speaking at the Aviation Festival in London on 8 September, Elbers said KLM had decided to use Facebook Messenger, Twitter, WeChat and, under a new trial, WhatsApp to communicate with customers and provide details including flight updates, check-in notifications and boarding passes.
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".
