Tweet Picks:

@Airlineroute  IBERIA has removed aircraft code “345” (A340-600) from schedule listing in summer 2018 season.

@ChinaAvReview #C919 No. 2 successfully completed maiden flight. Took off 10:34am and landed 12:34pm, Dec. 17, 2017 China Standard Time (UTC+8), the day exactly 114 years after the the human’s fisrt flight by Wright Brothers.

@FG_STrim Delta’s network planner Esposito makes it clear that Delta does not like the 737-700, even though it has 10 of them. The 737-700 has the highest seat-mile costs in Delta’s fleet, Esposito says. Delta does not want more.
