Tweet Picks:

@AirlineGeeks The move seems to be bold, but necessary: combining the operations of IAG’s short-haul low-cost Vueling and NAS would create a major player in a regional low-cost market dominated by Ryanair and Easyjet.

@AlexInAir  Istanbul’s giant new airport is 85% finished and will open on time this year.  • The airport will open on October 29  • At 67.6 million square metres the airport will be the largest by size in the world. • New airport will replace Ataturk International Airport as the main hub.

@scalkins2 Big airline IAG’s taking out an upstart rival is a great move for IAG shareholders. Not so sure about consumers, and it will be interesting to see if @JusticeATR @CMAgovUK @CCPCIreland or other enforcers object.

@TimothyCalkins IAG’s bid to acquire @Fly_Norwegian is a terrific example of defensive strategy at work. 

@WandrMe Remember when BA let OpenSkies (and several others) build an aviation market with huge losses, eventually buying the last airline standing to benefit from those investments? Yeah, the Norwegian move looks mighty similar. #avgeek #iag.
