@ghimlay .@Avianca owner German Efromovich on costs at BOG: “They are charging you to even breathe.” #FIDAE2016 #WoC.
@winglets747 China Southern ended 2015 with 667 aircraft. By end of 2020, it will have approximately 1,000 aircraft. Can big be beautiful?.
@winglets747 Emirates adding 4th daily London Gatwick flight from 1 October. In total, 10 daily Emirates flights to London. All but one on A380s.
@winglets747 If Emirates can sustain 10 (or more) London flights, imagine what it could put into Paris, Germany etc. if governments allowed.
@winglets747 Lower yields do not necessarily mean making less money (profit) per passenger.
