Tweets of the day:

@AirFlottau Akbar applauds EU/Qatar bilateral talks, but wants 5th freedom rights for QR and is concerned about “fair competition” clauses. #ACTECAPA16.

@AirFlottau “The bloody runway will take ten years (to build), it will be after our time.” Qatar CEO Al Akbar on Heathrow expansion. #ACTECAPA16.

@AirFlottau “There is a Darth Vader in the airline industry, it is the national carriers.” Air Asia’s Tony Fernandes at #ACTECAPA16.

@airlinewriter Airline investors track PRASM, passenger revenue for every seat flown 1 mile. Here’s the 1-year change in PRASM by region for $AAL $DAL $UAL.

@airlinewriter The drop in PRASM on that chart reflects falling average fares in 2015 and 2016 and, in some cases, a few more empty seats on planes.

@airlinewriter Relax, @SouthwestAir fans: CEO was asked again today if they’ll consider new bag fees. Nope. He said that would be “foolish.” $LUV.

@airlinewriter What makes passengers loyal? Airline trade group IATA says it’s these factors. #travel https://twitter.com/airlinewriter/status/789487765771673600.

@emirates Today we received our 85th @Airbus A380, marking the 250th aircraft in our all wide-body fleet.

@ghimlay .@Allegiant says decision to move to CLE from CAK was “easy”, says pax were coming from near CLE anyway.

@ghimlay .@Allegiant says Q3 revenue came in at high side of guidance, due to good performance of mid-sized markets.

@IrishMarketers Ryanair’s marketing strategy “Be like Aldi on price, be like Amazon on digital and execute faster than anyone else” #miicmo.
