Tweet Picks:

@AusBT BA tests new ClubWorld business class seats ahead of 2019 debut, with all-new first class suites to follow.

@CAPA_Aviation .@CAPA_Aviation executive chairman Peter Harbison: Airports and airlines can adapt to the ancillary system of retailers. The potential for data sharing, joint marketing & cooperating on delivery presents additional revenue opportunities. The outcome is 5 times that #CAPASummit.

@CAPA_Aviation @CAPA_Aviation executive chairman Peter Harbison: Airlines, led by low cost carriers, are raising their RASK by selling ancillaries, including seat upgrades, luggage charges and booking changes #CAPASummit.

@R_Wall IAG CEO voices disappointment with @RollsRoyce over Trent 1000 issue, @Airbus over A320neo — signals demand in some cases for compensation claims beyond contractual commitments.

@thefalda May be wrong here, but I see #Norwegian shedding 10% on the day as an overreaction. IAG made two (supposedly increasing) bids and are still “weighing their options”. $NAS says they are “materially undervalued”. It’s the usual dance! Aer Lingus said the same before IAG acquired it.
