Tweets of the day:

@AP_Joan_Lowy Milestone: #FAA has registered more #drone operators (325,000 as of Fri.) than currently licensed pilots, 320,000.

@GlobeTrotScott Wow, @United paid $1.21-$1.26 for fuel in Jan.; $1.38-$1.43 when hedges factored in.

@jonostrower Interviewed Southwest’s Herb Kelleher about 737. SWA almost bought DC-9-30s. Got Boeing to agree on price during visit to McDonnell Douglas.

@winglets747 Iran Air to be like Turkish. Perceived as a Gulf 3 competitor, but has large home market. 6th freedom traffic a much smaller share.

@winglets747 US government has postponed Tokyo Haneda talks due to take place this week. Reason is Delta’s bullying.
