Tweets of the day:

@airlineroute ANA will begin codeshare service with Brussels airlines and germanwings / Eurowings from 25OCT15.

@airlineroute Taiwan’s Apple Daily citing EVA Air spokesperson: “the airline still does not rule out possibility of A350 order”.

@airlineroute EVA Air’s planned Boeing 787-10 order will allow the airline to further expand South East Asia and North America market, as well as Oceania.

@airlineroute Lufthansa will begin CityLine A340 operation to Philadelphia starting 18DEC15.

@airlineroute US Airways US1939, the final flight operating as US Airways on 16/17OCT15, is operated by Airbus A321, N152UW (Ship 152).

@AviaScopeTwits Demise of Russian Transaero Airlines means that there will be no 747-8Is and 380s in Russia. Too bad to have fewer orders on the 747-8Ipax.

@DENAirport Day: passengers want to keep their life moving while traveling with services that make them feel human #skiftforum.
