Tweets of the day:

@e_russell .@Delta may be posturing for a good deal from Airbus or Boeing again, its taking a “serious look” at the #CSeries.

‏@e_russell “Haneda is clearly a preferable airport to someone flying to Tokyo,” says @Delta’s Hirst on #HND vs #NRT.

@e_russell Summary: @Delta wants a fully liberalised #HND or nothing. Proposed deal wud add 10 daytime US-Japan slots at airport, 5 for each country.

@ghimlay A4E! I bet @AirlinesDotOrg is pleased they started the trend?

@PEdmondAero .@EU_Commission thinks US is in breach of EU/US Open Skies on @Fly_Norwegian, EC will take steps “in coming weeks”.

@vl_bryan @Ryanair CEO O’Leary calls on EU to take action to eliminate ATC strikes. “Tendency is to strike first and talk later”, he says #A4E.

@winglets747 Singapore Airlines to launch SIN-Canberra-Wellington: ostensibly capital express, more likely reward ticket express and staff travel express.
