Tweets of the day:

@ghimlay LATAM has no plans to buy any other companies, and “nobody wants to acquire our group”, says Cueto.

@ghimlay New LATAM brand involved many “heated discussions”, both LAN and TAM brands evoked emotions in many people, says Amaro.

@ghimlay LATAM says first A350 will still have TAM livery, and that it takes 12-18 months lead time for livery to be changed.

‏@ghimlay First LATAM aircraft with new livery will arrive first half of 2016 – not clear which type.

@winglets747 Comment from a friend about the LATAM re-branding: “Did they hire the people who did Iberia?”
