Tweets of the day:

@airlineroute Another update on ETIHAD’s Dublin schedule in winter 2015/16 season….EY041/042 closed for reservation for travel on/after 11JAN16 https://twitter.com/airlineroute/status/634227119531253760.

@Asian_Ranger Etihad reducing Dublin from 2x to 1x daily ??? First to blink in an irrational capacity environment.

@aspireaviation First @Qantas red tail @BoeingAirplanes 787-9 will enter into service in 2017 #Qantas.

@aspireaviation #qantas debt/EBITDA improved significantly to 2.9x from 5.0x.

@aspireaviation #Qantas CEO Alan Joyce flags MEL-DFW as potential new route for #Boeing 787-9.

@ea_andrewh @RunwayGirl looks like F9 is trying to best the G4/NK models with a new category: UULCC (Unbelievably).

@JetwayMJ Yahoo Travel calls @RunwayGirl the #airline “passenger’s advocate” – ranks site in top 10  #avgeek resources.  

@WandrMe So, @porterairlines is going fully revenue-based for loyalty, too. This trend is not slowing down.
