@JohnLStrickland  Raison d’etre for #Etihad investment in #AirBerlin under question via @AirFlottau.

@JohnLStrickland Sad/triste as #AirFrance prepares to say goodbye to the mighty & iconic #Boeing747.

@Kenny_Jacobs I usually never support public ownership but UK trains might be the exception. Poor service, poor mgt and mad prices.
