Tweet Picks:

@airkarp WestJet’s ULCC, Swoop, will charge passengers a fee for water.

@e_russell Interesting, $WJA to directly target US ULCCs that pick up Canadian traffic on the US side of the border with Swoop.

@e_russell Virgin Atlantic will fly to ATL, Barbados, JFK, LAS and MCO from Manchester in April 2018.

@e_russell $WJA will have a “fully fledged” premium economy cabin on its 787s. #paxex.

@globetrotter154 @VirginAtlantic to lease 4 A330-200 to run the @manairport operation from March 1st 2018. Ex Air Berlin aircraft to be used, and retrofitted to VS standards later in 2018 @MaslenAviation.

@Icelandair @ryankirkpatric4 We have regretfully decided to suspend the Birmingham route. We are shifting our focus in the UK/Ireland market.  We will begin a Dublin service from May 2018; our capacity on current gateways will increase from 36 to 44 weekly flights.
