Tweets of the day:
@KianiKress Depressing June @ @lufthansa almost 0 growth inspite of more pax at @FlySWISS @eurowings leads to shrinking load factor + even worse yields.
@KianiKress Good 2Q at @Fly_Norwegian with doubling profit + 88 PC load factor says, it ain’t all crisis + Brexit fear for (a bit) UK based airlines.
@KianiKress Dawn of a new age: @Fly_Norwegian starts transatlantic low cost service – in narrowbody Airbus A321LR, expect more + eastbound from Europe.
@KianiKress What crisis? @easyJet with 7 mln pax in june 94,1% load factor, yoy up even +7,1% pax, 91,5% load factor, almost no space for rebookers.
@PEdmondAero .@alitalia says @skyteam won’t let it grow Atlantic capacity, hints it’ll leave alliance & focus on @EtihadAirways.
