Tweets of the day:

@airlineroute  Emirates to start Dubai – Orlando service from 01SEP15, marking the return of scheduled service from Middle Eastern carrier since 2001.

@winglets747 US carriers want freeze on Gulf carrier flights, but Emirates adds Orlando from 1 Sep and second daily Seattle from 7 Jul.

@winglets747 No surprise about Emirates launching non-stop service to Orlando. Orlando was its largest connecting market from JFK.

@winglets747 Lots of negative comments about Qatar A350 high-density seating. But Finnair A350 will have 10 more biz seats and 4 more Y seats.

@winglets747  Air New Zealand proposed JV with Air China seeks “sustainable capacity” growth – as opposed to what others are doing? :).
