Tweets of the day:
@Airbus “Out of 10,000 aircraft, 8800 have been sold by John Leahy, @Airbus COO Customers and his team” Tom Enders, @AirbusGroup CEO #Airbus10000.
@BrianSumers Learned something new. @United has violated #AMS airport morning curfew five times this year, and has been fined €75,000. Ouch.
@e_russell .@Delta confirms that it will only have FIVE 747s left at the end of 2016, as @AirlineFlyer suggested. Those will be retried in 2017.
@e_russell .@Delta plans to grow capacity just 1% in 2017. This is below Street expectations of ~2% growth, but will be good for unit revs and margins.
@ghimlay Havana will become @SouthwestAir’s 100th destination, Cuba will be its 9th country.
