Tweets of the day:
@winglets747 Philippine Airlines says the A350-900HGW will be available from 2017, a year earlier than the A350-900ULR.
@winglets747 Philippine Airlines: Airbus told us we don’t need A350-900ULR. -900HGW will do the trick. MNL-Eastern US is 3 hours closer than from SIN.
@winglets747 Oneworld: we had strong airline brands and they kept logo on tails. Oneworld envious Star could have entire Star aircraft #CAPAsummit.
@winglets747 oneworld spent $0 on marketing in 6 years after 9/11. Introduced painted aircraft – argued that would give better results than ads.
@winglets747 oneworld required airlines to paint 3% of their fleet in oneworld liveries #CAPAsummit.
@winglets747 With JV ATIs, do airlines shape regulators or do regulators shape airlines by requiring (as in US) open skies? #CAPAsummit.
@winglets747 There’s distrust within airlines about JVs. One department says they would have been better without JV. Need top level view #CAPAsummit.
