Tweets of the day:

@dominicgates Airbus jets now produced round the clock, 24 hours a day, at plants in Toulouse, France; Hamburg, Germany; Tianjin, China; & Mobile, Ala.

@ghimlay .@Allegiant COO: “We would like to be out of the MD-80 before Delta.”

@jonostrower Boeing has delivered ~390 787s & has accumulated $28.65b in deferred costs. On earlier programs after 400 aircraft, that balance was ~zero.

@jonostrower Delta’s Ed Bastian: CSeries is Airbus and Boeing competitor and “we’re thrilled to be able to have that choice.”

@jonostrower Delta CEO Ed Bastian says CSeries deal even more capital efficient than Boeing 717 deal.

@R_Wall Boeing says in active discussions with customers over 737 Max 7 after @jonostrower reports on 737 Max 7X.

@R_Wall @jonostrower #Boeing is feeling the heat from #Bombardier #CSeries order to #Delta $BBD.B.CA $BDRBF – The game has changed
