Tweets of the day:

@airlineroute UNITED’s planned 787-9 Tokyo Haneda operation moves forward to 26MAR16, instead of 01AUG16.

@e_russell Has the UA-LH-AC transatlantic JV expanded to include Austrian, Brussels and Swiss? Both @united and @FlyingBrussels are saying as much.

@e_russell The US and Mexico have signed the new air services agreement they reached in Nov14, Mexico still needs to ratify.

@e_russell Wow, Portugal may re-nationalise TAP because of a “socialist” party promise? Remind me not to do biz in the country.

 ‏@winglets747 Now at Hong Kong airport: Emirates A380 has Air France A380 on one side, Lufthansa A380 on other. Rare that it’s the Euros squeezing EK :).
