Tweets of the day:

@airkarp 85% of Volaris’s sales are generated from social media, CEO Enrique Beltranena says. #ALTAForum2016.

@airkarp Mitsubishi Aircraft Corp. has started building the first two MRJ70 flight test aircraft & expects the MRJ70’s first flight to be in 2H 2017.

@BBD_Aircraft Congrats to the six @airBaltic core pilots who have completed their training and are now qualified to fly the #CS300 aircraft. #CSeries.

@BoeingAirplanes Congrats @Airbus on a successful first flight for the #A350-1000. Competition makes our industry stronger.

@ghimlay  .@Delta has formally opposed @USDOT’s award of LAX-PEK frequencies to @AmericanAir, says AA has “history of overpromising” on China routes.

@ghimlay  .@VoeGOLoficial CEO believes that consolidation among Latin American airlines is “inevitable”, pointing to softness in economies.

@ghimlay Star Alliance carriers @avianca and @AirChinaNA plan to codeshare on US flights.

@KianiKress 22% raise for @lufthansa Pilots is nonstop to already crowded cemetary of failed airlines + make Germany rely on carriers from US Asia.

‏@StratAero #Emirates Confirms #A380neo Is Dead  https://is.gd/otkWOx Fate Of #A350 Unclear As 787 Stays As Preferred Choice For GCCs Biggest Airline.

@winglets747  Lufthansa pilots want 22% pay increase. They think “fair competition” will see other airlines grow pay by that much, or LH out of business?.
