Tweet Picks:

@McWhirterAlex No surprise to learn that Australia is, for UK travellers, such an important destination.  @PierreAGERON.
@tim_cook @SingaporeAir  has transformed the cockpit with iPad! Thanks to CEO Goh Choon Phong and Captain Raj for showing me how iPadOS helps pilots focus on what matters — safety.
@WandrMe The assets of Thomas Cook Scandinavia transferred to a new investor group and the airline received a new AOC as Sunclass Airlines. Now that group is asking the US DoT to transfer the legacy Foreign Air Carrier Permit over as well. #AvGeek.
@winglets747 A fleet of 12 “Project Sunrise” aircraft would be less niche and more mainstream for Qantas, which plans a fleet of 14 787s and already has 12 A380s.
@winglets747 ANA still plans to order the 737 MAX (20 confirmed and 10 options). Contract was to be signed in the spring but postponed due to the second MAX crash (Ethiopian).
