Tweets of the day:

@Airlineroute Bangkok Airways’ leased A319 and A320 from NIKI begins operation today (15DEC16) for winter season.

@Airlineroute British Airways 777-200ER to serve London Heathrow – Madrid route once a day from 26MAR17.

‏@Airlineroute Air Canada and Virgin Australia plans codeshare and FFP partnership in early 2017.

@BrianSumers An era is ending! @united will stop boarding newspapers on Jan 1.

@e_russell Alaska will evaluate both its Airbus and Boeing aircraft before making a fleet decision in the “next year or so”, says CFO Pedersen.

@e_russell  Competition for @Fly_Norwegian’s Boston-area base has been fierce. BDL and PSM competing with PVD for the service.  

@e_russell  “The transatlantic has a lot of capacity and supply has exceeded demand and probably will again in 2017,” says Delta CEO Bastian.

@jonostrower Potentially rhetorical question. Can you think of any airline merger where everyone was like ‘these two have the same culture?’.

@jonostrower Unlike most airline mergers, it’s hard to see changes on the first day. Alaska & Virgin already looking a little different.

@seatimesbiz ‘Like bacon on a donut’: Alaska-Virgin merger joins very different airlines.

@timjue Alaska CEO Tilden on merger with Virgin America, “if we want to be here decades from now, we need to be bigger.”
