Tweets of the day:
@Airbus #A350-1000 progressing well: Wing Lower Cover on its way from Spain to the UK for FAL start in Toulouse early 2016.
@GlennFarleyK5 BREAKING: My source telling me this wing part found in Indian Ocean is consistent with 777. Very possibly Malaysia MH 370.
@ghimlay @AllegiantTravel SVP Jude Bricker on Mexico flights: “Like we said in the last four years, it’s next year.”
@Mattonews 82% of #Qantas pilots voted in favour of EBA, which includes 18-month pay freeze. 88% voter turnout. Now, for Alan Joyce to push go-button.
@ReutersAero Malaysian PM says debris to be taken to BEA office in Toulouse #MH370.
@tonyfernandes A great editorial form the New Straits Times. A fair view . Airlines need airports. Airports should work with clients.
@tonyfernandes Forced to move into klia2 which was clearly a mistake . Let’s not make same mistake in sabah and kill off jobs and tourism.
@tonyfernandes Sabah tourism has grown because of Airasia. We know what we need and moving to terminal 1will destroy all the good work and jobs.
