Tweets of the day:

@Justin_Burns1  In his presentation @IATA head of e-cargo Guillaume Drucy says end of year eAWB penetration will be from 38-40% – below target of 45%.

@Justin_Burns1 Drucy says in 2016 the eAWB penetration target is 56% – says 70% of world can do eAWB. Target will be achieved by getting 80% of that 70%.

@Justin_Burns1 Gruber says 45 operators are in the certification progress and 97 in discussion over certification.

@Justin_Burns1  Gruber says focus is on certification @ the destination rather than origin as where the problem of pharma goods being damaged usually occurs.

@winglets747  Dubai-Panama City may be world’s longest route for only a brief while. Another ultra-long-haul announcement expected next week.

@winglets747  United Airlines to end Dubai service 23 January 2016. That kills United’s entire Gulf network, which a year also included DOH, KWI, BAH.
