Tweet Picks:

@airlinewriter Fitch reaffirms $UAL’s BB rating, two notches below investment grade. Cites “solid” operations and financial performance compared to rivals, and expects @united’s credit to be stable for 2-3 years “barring an unexpected economic downturn.” Yeah, there’s always that.

@airportnewsMAN *info* @manairport is classed by @staralliance as a hub airport. Manchester has 13 star airlines, covering 21 destinations and up to 209 one way flights per week. Could there be more to come? #flights #manchester #staralliance/

@dominicgates Australian flag carrier to choose between Airbus A350 and Boeing 777X for “Project Sunrise” ultra-long-haul Sydney-London non-stop flights. Qantas CEO: We have their best-and-final offers on the table – *including a compelling offer from Boeing to deal with any delay to the 777X*.

@SeanM1997 SpiceJet has been denied slots at London Heathrow airport to start a new daily flight to Amritsar on A330-300. It has got Manchester slots to start a new Mumbai route but is unclear where the aircraft would come from as SpiceJet do not operate the A330.

@TheForwardCabin The retirement of the @AmericanAir MD-80 symbolizes the end of the good days of American — days when there was great service, great seats, great employees and great catering. It’s going to be a very sad day on Wednesday when that chapter closes.
