Tweet Picks: 

@dominicoc .@RollsRoyce takes a £554m hit on problematic Trent 1000 programme – expected cost of fixing it over next four years @BBCr4today.

@e_russell United’s third aircraft with its new Premium Plus cabin – possibly 777-200 reg N786UA – is due to enter service on 9 August, UA tells flight attendants.

@McWhirterAlex Low-cost carriers will be impacted by higher oil prices. Singapore’s @flyscoot announces higher fares today.

@winglets747 Delta on 10 July set a record for largest cargo revenue on a single flight: US$254,000 from Atlanta to Johannesburg. This cargo accounted for over 40% of total flight revenue. Goods were manufacturing components for BMW. Previous cargo record was US$133,000 NRT-LAX in 2015.

@winglets747 Oh the irony that Delta could use subsidised fuel to potentially open a flight to India, bypassing a Gulf hub, or resume Dubai service.
