Tweet Picks:

@dominicgates Lively Bloomberg TV interview with Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary. He predicts: * Oil prices to spike, air fares to rise * Norwegian Air to fail * Air France, a basket case, will be bailed out * Ryanair to buy Airbus jets via its new Austrian LCC LaudaMotion.

@dominicgates Reuters reports from Europe that the @Airbus A330neo will lose out to @Boeing’s 787 in a key sale to United. That would be the third big win for Boeing from U.S. airlines in rapid succession.

@jonostrower The creation chain here is fascinating. JetBlue founder becomes @JetSuite’s CEO. JetBlue Ventures invests in @zunumaero. JetBlue codeshares with @JetSuiteX. JetSuite buys up to 100 of Zunum’s hybrids.

@LeehamNews The prospects of United ordering the A330neo and adding a fleet type to the strong incumbency of the 787 were none and less than none. This was a “had nothing to lose” shoot-the-moon effort by Airbus.

@seattletimes Zunum Aero, a startup that’s won funding from both Boeing and the state of Washington, is developing a plane, mostly built of composites, with Tesla-style battery packs in the wings.
