Tweets of the day:

@alexjcornwell @Qantas CEO says airline is making more than @VirginAustralia, Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines and @EtihadAirways put together.

@winglets747 Prestige, “strategic value” ahead of profits? SIA considers re-entering Singapore-US nonstop w/ A350, Qantas considers Perth-UK non-stop 787.

@winglets747 After many years of people charging Qantas was gifting growth to Jetstar, it is Jetstar giving aircraft (787s) to Qantas.

@winglets747 Jetstar long-haul growth further curtailed. Its 3 787-8 orders converted to 787-9s for Qantas.

@winglets747 A week after Emirates announces Panama City, Turkish Airlines follows with 3x weekly 77W IST-Bogota-Panama City-IST routing.
