Tweet Picks:

@e_russell “Fuel prices have risen very quickly and it takes time to adapt,” says $AAL CEO Parker. Expects fares to adjust in time.

@e_russell If fuel prices remain where they are “you’ll see less capacity growth than people are talking about right now,” says $AAL CEO Parker.

@e_russell Interesting, Boeing has committed to provide $AAL operating lease financing for the 22 787-8s it recently ordered, says CFO Kerr. Boeing doesn’t normally provide financing to a large customer like AA.

@e_russell  JetBlue’s “ability to grow our relevance in Boston and Fort Lauderdale depends on having the infrastructure in place to support this growth.” @martysg.

@justinbachman LGB Airport says it’s gotten interest from @Delta, 

@SouthwestAir and @HawaiianAir for using slots @JetBlue plans to quit later this year. #airports #airlines.
