Tweet Picks:

@AlexInAir .@AirBaltic CEO: “It’s the job of the politicians to find a solution, execute it and do something. Britain has taken a vote to leave the #EU, they have not taken a vote to stop aviation” #Brexit.

@ghimlay Logical to assume that scheduled capacity in most markets has only grown through the years. But capacity within the Caribbean this year is at an all-time low since 2004 (furthest back I could go). Interesting for a market where some of the biggest airlines aren’t local.

@justinbachman Airlines, especially that one in Atlanta, compete for corporate travelers and product, punctuality matter more in 2018 than a few bucks on price. 

@justinbachman United Continental boosted its 2018 profit outlook for the third time this year, overcoming higher oil prices as strong travel demand buoys a financial turnaround at the No. 3 U.S. airline.

@justinbachman Why Poland is planning Europe’s biggest airport, one Michael O’Leary dubs a “shiny cathedral in the middle of nowhere.
