Tweet Picks:

@KianiKress The still not too well giant @AirFranceKLM loses 274 mln in 2017 as “balance sheet derisking” eats up fuel driven operations improvement. And @KLM improves profitability lead on @airfrance again.

@MaslenAviation It is less than six weeks until landmark @Qantas service between #Perth & #London launches. A @BlueSwanDaily investigation shows Economy passengers are currently being asked to pay premium of around 50% for convenience of the non-stop flight.

@tonyfernandes Oil continues to drop. Asean currencies led by the  ringitt holding its own. Airports now all focusing on LCC. Let the good times roll in.

@winglets747 One simple question: can you control your full-service cost base to an acceptable amount? US airlines gave up LCCs and declared bankruptcy. South Africa’s Comair runs two brands (FSC & LCC) on one cost base. Non-LCC ways to lower costs: ANA’s Air Japan, SAS London base.

@winglets747 Jet fuel showing single-digit decreases from last week (-8%) and last month (-2%), but still significantly up from last year (+18%). Via Platts.
