Tweets of the day:

@e_russell .@Delta anticipates 2-3% capacity growth in 1Q16, 0-2% growth for 2016.

@e_russell .@Delta is looking closely at #CSeries, adds Anderson. Emphasis on “right price”.

@e_russell “We actually think at the right price its quite a competitive airplane given the engine technology,” says @Delta Anderson on #CSeries.

‏@e_russell #MWAA anticipates record @Reagan_Airport pax of 23.1m in 2015. @Dulles_Airport traffic stabilising after years of declines.

@rafat It won’t come out of trial stage. Fastest way to become millionaire: start as a billionaire & invest in air travel.
