Tweets of the day:

@JohnLStrickland New  3 x weekly @HeathrowAirport to @kefairport service announced by @British_Airways from winter schedule @TheHUBRoutes.

@JohnLStrickland  #Emirates President Sir Tim Clark told me it’s in the company DNA to be nimble.  Doesn’t need weeks/months to make network decisions.

@JohnLStrickland #QatarAirways happy with #Airbus #A350 in service. Lessons learned from #Boeing problems with 787 #dreamliner which itself has settled down.

@JohnLStrickland Al Baker very positive about evolving opportunity from #IAG relationship. #QatarAirways @ATMDubai.
