Tweets of the day:

@AirPlaney @jonostrower @AirlineFlyer plus it’s in long-term interest of the airlines to have viable third OEM if only as a threat to Boeing and Airbus.

@CargoFacts Mediocre the new reality for air freight, says IATA, but there are ‘signs for cautious optimism’.

@jonostrower Northwest brought Airbus A320s to the U.S. with a 1986 order, Delta is going to do the same with Bombardier in 2016.

@justinbachman Are U.S. pilots more worried about the implications of the DOT’s @Fly_Norwegian decision than #airlines are? @WeAreALPA @swapapilots.

@ReutersAero #NorwegianAir CEO says will need more long-haul jets after U.S. route clearance, most likely #Boeing 787.
