Tweets of the day:

@airkarp Boeing VP-marketing Randy Tinseth: 95% of routes flown by 757 will be able to be served by 737 MAX 9. #ISTATAmericas.

@airkarp  Spirit CFO T. Christie: ‘We’ve got low fuel in a growing economy…When fuel is low, you’re usually in some kind of recession.’ #ISTATAmericas.

@airkarp Seabury CEO John Luth: While 85% of transatlantic capacity is operated by alliances, 85% of that capacity is operated by JVs. #ISTATAmericas.

@airkarp Seabury Group CEO John Luth: airline joint ventures are ‘supplanting global alliances.’ #ISTATAmericas.

@Kenny_Jacobs @DublinAirport 2 passport desks open with 350+ people queuing. This is still a problem. It’s not like this can’t be planned. Bad for biz.
