Tweets of the day:

@ghimlay @TAMAirlines will deploy A350s on GRU-MCO in second half of 2016 (replacing 767s), but freqs will reduce to daily from 11 weekly.

@IATA Airline industry should not have to apologize for making a 4% avg net profit margin, @IATA DG Tony Tyler at #iatawps. 

@tmongecuriel Airlines to carry 3.5bln passengers in 2015, figure to double in 20 years, says Tony Tyler, IATA, at #IATAWPS.

@winglets747 Cathay Pacific to discontinue Doha effective 15 Feb 2016 due to “commercial reasons”. Cathay to withdraw codeshares on Qatar beyond Doha.

@winglets747 Cathay’s increased focus on Europe, and local airline partners there, sees Qatar lose importance.

@winglets747 Cathay Pacific expected to unveil new livery on a 777-300ER on 1 November.

@winglets747 Airport names can honour people’s contribution to aviation. Will there one day be a Herb Kelleher, Tim Clark, or Tony Fernandes airport?.
