Tweets of the day:
@EmbraerSA With Aircastle’s order, at @salondubourget, #E2s backlog achieved 640 commitments – 267 firm orders, 373 options and purchase rights #pas15.
@starflyergold Levy on frequent leisure flyers proposed to make airport expansion unnecessary http://gu.com/p/4axmn/stw (nuts, you can say goodbye to LHR).
@winglets747 AirAsia X unlikely to take A350s, so what other airline will offer 10 abreast?.
@winglets747 Comparison: On a 12 hour flight Lufthansa never once managed to refill my water. On a 90 minute flight LOT refilled my water twice.
@winglets747 Russia has 130 airlines but top 10 carry 90% of traffic. Aeroflot believes 30 airlines is enough.
