Tweets of the day:

@airinsight MRJ is unsure which model they will deliver first. Scope clause is that much of an issue.  #RAA2015.

@BrianSumers The list price of a @Bombardier CS100 is $62m. But @airinsight says you can buy one for a $36m. What a deal! #RAA2015.

@BrianSumers Did you know? A @Bombardier CRJ aircraft takes off once every 12 seconds in North America. That’s a lot of cramped passengers! #RAA2015.

@crankyflier @AmericanAir pres says we aren’t seeing capacity discipline – growth is higher than GDP and fares are falling #PHX2015.

@e_russell “I think most people define ‘capacity discipline’ as supply aligned with demand – it’s not aligned in 2015,” says AA pres Kirby. #phx2015.

@FM_World Ryanair’s Michael O’Leary: “Being nice to customers is a good business strategy.” Who knew? #ThinkFM.

@jonostrower Boeing’s Ray Conner says 737 Max wing spar load (LN5602) begins this month in Renton #BoeingID.

@jonostrower CFO: Boeing using the same footprint to build 47 737s each month as it did 19 per month. #BoeingID.

@jonostrower Boeing CEO McNerney says going clean sheet instead of 737 Max “would’ve place years of near term market strength at risk.” #BoeingID.

@KianiKress They mean business: @Ryanair advances 1st german domestic route Cologne-Berlin by 2 months to September + throws in €9,99 fare.
