Tweets of the day:
@e_russell “We will not relax on our laurels… if we relax we will become like all the other airlines you are disappointed with in the US,” Al Baker.
@Ryanair Born in the USA. Flown all over Europe. Boeing aircraft – making Ryanair even greater. No debate.
@WandrMe “Boeing’s competitors don’t want me saying this, but inside they know this is true: Boeing makes the best airplanes.” Closing from AAB.
@WandrMe AAB says @qatarairways doesn’t use Ex-Im bank but still wants to say it is bad to kill the group, calls it unpatriotic.
@WandrMe New wide-body planes will include the new @qatarairways business class seat. But unveiling is now delayed to ITB in Q1 ’17. #AvGeek #PaxEx.
@winglets747 Is Emirates next to order Boeing in defiance to Airbus? Emirates annoyance with Airbus dithering on A380neo could see it order 787, not A350.
