@crankyflier  Time to put on the thinking caps. @qatarairways is investing in @JetSuite and @JetBlue is upping its investment at the same time. There has to be an end game here, but I’m having trouble seeing it. 

@DeptJusticeIRL Yesterday 9th April saw us reach the million mark in terms of passengers successfully using eGates at Dublin Airport. The user was a Dutch national using the gates in Terminal 2 at 16:28.

@vl_bryan 7 days of #airfrance strikes between Feb 22 and Apr 11 cost 170 mln eur in operating income @AirFranceKLM says.

@vl_bryan #panasonic avionics CTO says seatback screens are here to stay. “Everyone has a handheld, a tablet and watches TV at the same time.” #AIX2018.

@WandrMe .@ThalesGroup pitching its “Core” Avant IFE kit for “lowering the acquisition cost, integration cost…enabling a new revenue channel for the airlines.” Pushing further into the low-end embedded IFE market, trying to fend off streaming in a box providers. #AIX18 #PaxEx.
