@capa_india Drop of close to 15% in ATF prices at Indian airports effective 1-Jan is a very positive development for Indian carriers as they head into the traditionally weak Q4. Domestic traffic growth expected to return to high teens despite capacity reduction by @jetairways #IndianAviation.
@CFM_engines Congratulations, #COMAC, on the 1 hour, 38 minute maiden flight of the third C919 prototype aircraft on Dec. 28.  #CFMLEAP.
@tonyfernandes As 2019 approaches I would like to confirm that airasia will not be opening up any more new airlines for the next 3 years. After Vietnam we will focus on what we have. Focus this year is to make Indoensia and Phillipines very profitable.
@tonyfernandes We have a great seams franchise. Indoensia malaysia Thailand Phillipines and vietnam. All the major populations and growing economies. Couples with two great countries to enable us to cover the world. India and Japan.
@tonyfernandes Airasia x will have the best ever year in 2019.  The most undervalued airline.  Have done all the hard work.  Cut silly routes. Renegoatieted  leases . Increase utilisation. Cut cost.  THAILAND roaring. Indoneisa stalked for the moment. Competitors stoped being subsided.
