Tweets of the day: 

@airkarp Embraer’s John Slattery: CASM ‘nonsense metric’ if ‘you’re not filling aircraft at a load factor & a yield that makes sense.’ #ISTATAmericas.

@AvWeekJoe: Airbus’ Leahy on A380neo: “We aren’t going to build an airplane for just one airline [Emirates], even if it does buy a lot.”

@e_russell @united is looking at the A321neo LR but has time to wait and see what Boeing does for a 757 replacement, says Baur. #ISTATAmericas.

@FG_STrim Boeing 787 dispatch reliability is 98% and trending up, says Tinseth. But that’s still below objective 99%+ goal. #ISTATAmericas.

@hellogeri  Even with a 20% discount code, Air Canada would have cost £900 more than WestJet + Aer Lingus + a hotel stay. Unbelievable.

@jonostrower “Richard Anderson is very good at annoying people recently.” -@GURUDUDE #ISTATAmericas.

@KianiKress The fun starts: @ryanair to attack @airberlin @lufthansa german domestic with Cologne-Berlin 4 daily.

@Willhide  New direct @iberiaexpress flights will link Heathrow with Tenerife North airport 3X weekly from the end of this month.
