Tweets of the day:

@e_russell  “I think it’s a very challenging future for [the A380],” says @AscendAviation head of consultancy Rob Morris.

@e_russell  “I wouldn’t be surprised if these aircraft are parted out,” says @AscendAviation head Morris on SQ’s early A380s as they come off lease. 

@e_russell  “The best secondary market use for the A380 is to part it out early to support the rest of the fleet,” says @AscendAviation head Morris.

@e_russell  .@AscendAviation estimates that Boeing has around 100 open current gen 777 slots to sell for 777X bridge, says head Morris.

@e_russell “[Boeing] needs to cut rates further,” says @AscendAviation head Morris on 777 bridge. Boeing already to cut rate to 7/month in 2017. 

@leehayhurst Reduction in UK growth plans from Ryaniar and Wizz Air post Brexit might be beneficial to Monarch yields and margins, says Swaffield.
