Tweets of the day:

@Airlineroute Iran Air’s First A321 operated first flight today (17JAN17) as IR3300, Tehran Mehrabad to Mashad. Return flight is IR3301 #iran.

 ‏@ghimlay .@SpiritAirlines estimates Q4 unit revenue fell 3.6% – which is in the better half of its earlier guidance.

@winglets747  In the time Lufthansa has tried to deal with Etihad, Qatar Airways has emerged as a another significant competitive threat.

@winglets747 Small but symbolic: as Etihad investment strategy wanes, its airline partners grow apart from each other.

@yvrairport Guess who’s back in 2017 – the @British_Airways A380 will return to the runways of YVR on April 30! #YVRA380.
