Tweets of the day:
@Airlineroute Ethiopian Airlines on 24DEC16’s Westbound Addis Ababa – Washington Dulles service to operate via Shannon, iso Dublin. Aircraft: 777-300ER.
@ghimlay .@JetBlue says it is assuming international flights will start at LGB in 2018.
@ghimlay .@JetBlue still non-committal on A321LR, says it has a bit more to learn about the airplane.
@justinbachman Note: London is the largest unserved @JetBlue market in BOS only since they’ve added BOS-ATL. (Yes, this invites more A321LR questions.)
