Tweets of the day:
@AirlineReporter Most telling #AkbarAlBaker comment re: 10-abreast coach: We are in the business of making money.
@e_russell Fyi, @Delta is not bigger than @united as @business reports. DL only flew more RPMs than UA in 2015. UA ASMs 250bn vs DL ASMs 247bn.
@Jamie_Freed AirAsia X flights from Gold Coast to Auckland can’t be great news for Air NZ, Virgin or Jetstar as daily AAX A330s have 377 seats.
@winglets747 20h20 Japanese airlines and airports take top spots in OAG’s rank of on time performance – but at what cost to efficiency?.
@winglets747 Could ANA-Vietnam Airlines work? Probably. Is it an integrated, tight Delta-Virgin Atlantic, Etihad-Jet? No.
@winglets747 People say Vietnam Airlines will benefit from ANA’s management. How much benefit from an airline with low productivity, high cost?.
