@CAPA_Aviation Etihad: France and Germany treating US carrier report as “gospel” to “surprise, surprise” protect national carriers. #CAPASummit.

@CAPA_Aviation  Etihad: US carriers lost 4.4% India market share but market has grown 33%. US carriers have seen 18% increase in volume. #CAPASummit.

@CAPA_Aviation Etihad: US carriers aren’t forced out of India. They choose to focus on high-yielding trans-atlantic market. #CAPASummit.

@hharteveldt #China building new airports so no one lives more than 90 miles from an #airport, says @WTTC’s CEO #OpenSkies #CAPASummit.

@JohnLStrickland #CAPASummit #Etihad gives the lie to US carrier claims of lost market share in US-India. Sure but markets have grown. Their pax numbers up!.

@JohnLStrickland V interesting Jim Callaghan #Etihad at #CAPASummit US airlines have abandoned India market in favour of high profits on North Atlantic.

@RunwayGirl How can US go through Ch 11, cut costs, get rid of pensions, and not call it a benefit, asks Ethiad. http://www.pbgc.gov/wr/trusteed/plans/plan-20544100.html … #CAPASummit.

@RunwayGirl “We have to have competition and we have to have consumers having choice.” @USTravel at #CAPASummit #PaxEx.

@RunwayGirl Every plane that lands at Orlando creates 13 jobs. Roll back Gulf access and you will impact jobs: US Travel Association at #CAPASummit.

@winglets747 US carriers talking about Gulf airline predatory pricing. Perhaps we should talk about US carriers’ absurdly low Asia fares. #CAPASummit.
