Tweet Picks:

@AlexInAir New: Kuwait’s  @JazeeraAirways is considering both Airbus A321LR and A321XLR single-aisle jets in order to develop a hub model.
@hjelnaes Germany Government has agreed to double its passenger tax on short/medium distance flights. They prove will be used to reduce vat on train travel. The Government has also agreed on airfares cannot undercut the value of governmental taxes and fees!.
@PaddyWhyte It’s an eye-catching list of routes for sure, but as @BrianSumers says “Virgin Atlantic is just another undersized airline trying to squeeze out a profit amidst intense competition.”
@PaddyWhyte Warning from analysts at Bernstein: “Thomas Cook’s collapse, mirroring that of Monarch two years ago, could see a number of other tour operators collapse, further squeezing the market.”
@WandrMe XL went bankrupt in 2008 and came back and was fine as a brand until it collapsed again this month. Several airline brands have been brought back in the USA and all failed financially, but not because the brands were tarnished but because they had horrible business models.
