Tweet Picks:
@BrianSumers Lukas Johnson ran commercial for @Allegiant. He’s bright guy, and he knows unserved routes. Seems like a good fit to pick routes for the newest US airline.
@e_russell “Seat selection fees, once the province of no frills discount airlines like Spirit and Allegiant, have become big business for major airlines.” (Via ⁦@DawnGilbertson⁩).
@JournoDannyAero China Southern’s dance towards Oneworld continues, and moving fast. CZ signs “strategic partnership” with Finnair. Details to come. After CZ deepens tie-up with shareholder @AmericanAir last month more is to come, inc. @British_Airways deal, possibly a JV. Note @cathaypacific .
@KianiKress German airports #adv sing: Merry X-mas, @airberlin trough is over.+6% passengers, +11% flights. But don’t get exited: german domestic still down 1,5% as choice of flight remains limited outside triangle Berlin-Munich-Cologne/Dusseldorf.
@KianiKress Another delay for new #istanbul #airport – opening now in march, possibly. Seems gravity is stronger than executive orders.
