Tweet Picks:

@Airbus The best definitely keeps getting better… and flying farther. Rolling out the first #A321neo ACF (Airbus Cabin Flex) that will be able to fly up to 240 passengers over a distance of 4000nm.

@AlexInAir Despite an active application,  @British_Airways says it has decided the airline will no longer lease Qatar Airways A320s between Feb and April – quote: ‘not needed anymore.

@Airlineroute  British Airways is leasing Titan Airways A320 aircraft to support its operation at London Gatwick, from May to September 2018.

@guildupont Air France follows the trend and launches long haul promo fares with no checked bag included cc @AvgeeksFR.

@jonostrower The one great misunderstanding about the 747 is that airlines wanted it not for its enormous size, but its incredible range. When the 777-200ER showed up in 1997, the  747 fleet peaked the following year and has been falling ever since.
