Tweets of the day:
@ghimlay .@Aeromexico expects to win regulatory approval for @Delta investment in Q3, says CEO.
@ghimlay Too bad ATL is overwhelmingly dominated by DL. If not, rival airline can pick up Fox Theatre sponsorship = PR brownie points scored.
@JohnLStrickland #ryanair profits after tax +43% to 1.2bn euros. Cost control still a key overriding focus aided by lower fuel.
@lift_aero Japanese airlines need 3 lounge attendants to clean the drip pan of 1 espresso machine. Now I know why Tokyo-Europe is US$2,500 in economy.
@R_Wall Ryanair CEO says #MS804, the loss of EgyptAir’s Airbus A320, has already affected bookings.
