Tweet Picks:

@BoeingAirplanes Congratulations @Airbus on the A330neo’s 1st flight, a milestone for the aviation industry.

@e_russell $UAL’s 2018 capacity forecast will be “driven by a view of what’s going to maximise our margin performance”, says pres Kirby.

@e_russell  $UAL doesn’t need to renegotiate its JV agreements but needs to realise their “full potential”, says pres Kirby.

@justinbachman  Today’s $UAL share drop nearing 10 pct. Safe to say, Wall St. folks not amused by lack of clarity on 2018 cost/revenue. #airlines #trust.

@MaxK_J .@Airbus will use 3 aircraft in #A330neo flight-test programme (2 -900 and 1 -800) and expects type cert in mid-2018.
