Ryanair announces 23 news routes from Germany connecting major business centers: http://bit.ly/1Kffgij

Tweets of the day:

@e_russell “It’s lower cost to fly two narrowbodies than a widebody for the same number of seats,” continues @AmericanAir pres Kirby.

@e_russell Sorry, @AmericanAir fliers. “We certainly aren’t going to bring widebodies back domestically,” says pres Kirby.

@e_russell @AmericanAir has deferred 5 787 deliveries that were due in 2016. 4 moved to 2017 and one to 2018.

@e_russell The @AmericanAir 787 deferral is “all about trying to do more to match supply to demand”, says president Kirby. Nothing to do with seats.

@e_russell “We do believe demand remains fundamentally strong in all regions of the world with the exceptions of Brazil and Venezuela,” says AA Kirby.

@e_russell “We have a disagreement on this issue [with BA] but it has no impact on the joint venture,” says @AmericanAir CEO Parker on Gulf subsidies.
