Tweets of the day:

@AirlineFlyer @JetBlue now reporting 85% of its A320 fleet now online with @ViaSatInc WiFi. That’s roughly 110/130 tails. The E190s come next. #PaxEx.

@aviator_aero  B757 which is expected to be provided by Loftleidir (Iceland) under ACMI. Refuleing stop in S. Africa. 

@e_russell “We need to establish a federally chartered, fully independent, not-for-profit corporation,” to operate + mod US ATC says @RepBillShuster.

@ghimlay Asian airlines account for an overwhelming share (>70%) of orders at this year’s quietish #PAS15.

@ghimlay US3 have rebutted @JetBlue in #ME3vsUS3, says it’s “manifestly false” that AA, DL and UA dominate domestic marketplace.

‏@ghimlay US3 call @JetBlue’s comments “commercially motivated”, say it benefits from “subsidized Gulf carrier feed”.

@winglets747  British Airways in May resumed Kuala Lumpur with daily service, but in October Air France will end its four weekly flights. (& MAS cut FRA).
