Tweets of the day:

@KianiKress CEO of @airberlin Pichler to resign + be placed by @lufthansa #Munich hub schief(o former @Eurowings CEO Winkelmann says @airliners_de.

@PhilDernerJr  Politics aside, Iran receiving these aircraft means modern types in their fleet will increase their safety, for both Iran & where they fly.

@RichardRoutes  While #USA airlines – particularly @United – tweak transatlantic activities, it appears demand to/from @DublinAirport remains strong…

@R_Wall  Looks like Boeing 777X is Iran Air’s 400+ seat plane of choice as 747-8, Airbus A380 fail to win favor in Tehran.

@winglets747 Exercise caution about Lufthansa-Etihad codeshare. Lufthansa is not coding beyond Abu Dhabi. Lufty not yet embracing Etihad’s hub business.
