Tweets of the day:
@e_russell Airbus aims for November 1st flight of A350-1000 (@united is the North American launch customer), via @FlightGlobal.
@e_russell “We have some really great assets. We have the great network potential in the US,” says new @united CCO Haywood.
@Oliver__Clark Dublin Airport MD Vincent Harrison says 100,000 people travel indirectly between Ireland + China as the two countries seek a direct air link.
@OpenJawTech For airlines, partnerships are vital to innovation. Look outside our industry & throw away fatalist legacy thinking #IATAWPS.
@skydavidblevins @AerLingus cabin crew (overheard on tonight’s flight to Belfast): “I love passengers from N. Ireland. They say thank you.” #OurWeeCountry.
@starflyergold And people wonder why @lufthansa Group is struggling: Seat reservations more expensive than Ryanair (example by @_austrian) #paxex.
