Tweet Picks:

@dw_business “Air Berlin was a weak and pleasant competitor for Lufthansa,” says Jens Flottau @AirFlottau.

@e_russell Altogether, AA’s 2018 transatlantic changes emphasise #PHL as its primary Atlantic gateway, deemphasise #BOS and #JFK.

@e_russell  “We have other [investment] opportunities, both in America and North America,” says Qatar Airways chief Al Baker.

@e_russell Not good when a major rating agency has serious doubts about A380 demand. Moody’s downgrades Doric EETCs.

@KristenPainter @SunCountryAir’s new CEO outlines his vision for airline with changes that sound a lot like ULCCs Spirit & Frontier.
