Tweets of the day:

@AirAsia 13 years ago, we only had 2 planes. Today we’ve flown our 300 millionth guest! – @tonyfernandes #AirAsia300millionth.

@swisshawaiian @tonyfernandes AirAsia X KUL-DEL must be in the pipeline I hope in order to feed the DEL hub. Even Malindo flies KUL-DEL.

@tonyfernandes Wow. After 13 years we have now carried 300 million people. 

@winglets747 Delta: looking to have a slow burnout from Dubai rather than yanking the plug right away? (Or gasp form a partnership.)

@winglets747 Emirates in recent months has forged codeshare agreements with SNCF and Bangkok Airways (previously interline). More partnership momentum?.
