Tweets of the day:

@julianoneill @PaulGosling1 @BelfastAirport what I’m also hearing, if correct, is that no Derry or Belfast routes will be the same.

@winglets747 New Emirates US changes: DFW goes 777 Feb 01-Apr 01, second daily LAX A380 resumes July 01 (prev: IAH goes 777 as well).

@winglets747 FedEx: Delta wants to turn open skies into “a mass of exceptions and second thoughts” because it wants “a one-way competitive street”.

@winglets747 Inbound tourism to Japan has, for the first time, overtaken outbound visitors during the New Year travelling period (part of larger trend).

@winglets747 2015 was the first year in 23 years that China Eastern’s North America network was profitable. (A long strategic investment, indeed.).
