Tweets of the day:

@e_russell Gol redesigned its scheds at #CGH + key domestic airports to improve utilisation + attract biz pax.

@ghimlay  .@VoeGOLoficial improves Q2 operating loss to R171m, reverses to net profit of R310m thanks to appreciation of Real agst USD.

@hharteveldt .@Delta wants to build a wall – around your long-haul biz class seat. DL to offer “suites” on A350s & 777s. 

@winglets747 Much needed Italy-Gulf capacity rationalisation. Etihad A319 to replace Alitalia A330 on Venice-Abu Dhabi from 30 Oct 2016.

@winglets747  US airlines catchup on product but not marketing. Seats commoditised. Seats don’t tell stories. Interaction creates experiences, memories.
