Tweet Picks:

@e_russell “Southwest is among the busiest domestic airlines, so the idea of it not coming to mind [in NYC] might sound surprising. But what matters for selling airline tickets… isn’t an airline’s overall size. It’s the airline’s relevance in a given market.”
@LuxuryTravelled IAG’s low-cost carrier LEVEL is suspending services from Vienna to London Gatwick from the 30th August.
@TheWoracle ⁦e-Ipanema! @embraer ⁩electric propulsion demonstrator is ready for installation of its motor (from WEG) and batteries.@ParkerAerospace ⁩ to supply the cooling system. Note the 2-blade prop. To fly in 2020.
@TTGMedia Heathrow traffic hit by fall in Asia Pacific passengers; July figures down 0.7%, fuelled by 3.2% drop in Asia Pacific passengers, as well as declines in EU and Latin America passenger numbers.
@winglets747 BA expects the A350 to burn fuel at roughly half the rate of the 747, despite accommodating only six fewer passengers than the 337-seat jumbo.
