Tweet Picks:

@AlexInAir @airberlin Lufthansa and German Government will restructure @AirBerlin in a bid to save the airline. Cuts expected to employees, routes, aircraft, etc.

@e_russell  Air Berlin liquidation sounds like the German equivalent to Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the US.

@ghimlay Avianca plans to add 4th and 5th European destinations later this year or early 2018, says CEO (One is most likely Frankfurt).

@vl_bryan In this case, air Berlin can keep flying because of the govt bridge loan. Otherwise it would have had to ground planes.

@flyingjok Cyprus based Cobalt Air is latest to plan hi-speed wifi for pax to download entertainment to own tablets/phones saving weight & costs on IFE.

@winglets747 Sensitive time for German govt ahead of Sept elections. Lufthansa prefers a weak airberlin instead of expanding easyJet/Ryanair.
