Tweets of the day:

@e_russell .@united will end its #IAH-Lagos flight on 29 June (eastbound). Was the first planned 787 route, launched in December 2010.

@e_russell .@united’s 2 June announcement is “product related”, says CEO Munoz. I bet its the new biz class seat.

@e_russell  “This network being so large and so expansive, we are very focused on where demand is growing by region,” says @united’s Compton.

@ghimlay .@HawaiianAir CCO says @Bombardier CSeries an “interesting” airplane. “I’m sure down the road we will be talking to them.”

@winglets747 Cathay chairman: “legacy” implies airline without creativity and imagination. “Don’t apply it to Cathay Pacific”.

@winglets747  Finnair gets 20x more revenue from its top-tier frequent flyers than ordinary passengers.
