Tweet Picks:

@LAflyr Premium economy layout published for @united 767-300, 777-200 and 777-300ER fleets. Note that the 763 gets more Polaris seats also. Will this the future UA Transcon p.s. plane? #united #ual  #boeing #B777 #B767.

@MaxK_J Kjos: Short sellers “have been betting against us [@Fly_Norwegian] since 2002…They will lose that bet”.

@MaxK_J Willie told me this in 2016, when I asked him if IAG was interested in Norwegian: “It could well be that they are trying to make themselves attractive for an acquisition but Bjorn shows no evidence of slowing down or wanting to move out.”

@TransportStats US airlines February fuel cost $2.06/gal, up 2cts from Jan($2.04), up 36cts from Feb2017 ($1.70), highest level since May 2015 #aviation #airlines #fuel #energy. 

@winglets747 Qantas has a niche with high yielding O&D PERLHR. It’s a big price jump from Gulf airline one stop to Qantas nonstop. Bigger impact probably Qatar: upgauging PER to A380, and Qatar has far wider beyond-hub network than Etihad.
