Tweet Picks:

@e_russell Delta will end its JFK-Havana service on 1 September, citing a “reduction in demand on the route connected to recent regulatory changes”.

@jonostrower The modified winglets that first rolled-out on the Singapore Airlines A350-900 ULR are now standard issue for the A350 fleet.

@KianiKress In the orderly Q of record year Airlines @wizzair with +24pc Pax still >14pc Martin after tax – and now former @Airbus US head Barry Ecclestone und in the board to cheer up former colleagues negotiations for fleet expansion.

@KianiKress German #airports traffic slightly up Jan -April  – but german domestic still down 3% on @airberlin bankruptcy.

@winglets747 Hong Kong media and stock market all excited that Cathay’s line on a LCC subsidiary is “never say never”. But look to the past: for years some form of that has been the line. Short-term “no” misinterpreted by others to mean no forever.
