Tweet Picks:

@JMulliganIndo .@ryanair shares down about 5% as it slashes services to Italy. Michael O’Leary says it is a “time for calm”. #CoronaOutbreak #aviation.

@justinbachman On a horrific day for U.S. stocks, a small company called @virgingalactic  gained 1.2%, part of a 197% jump so far this year. Its market cap is now above $7 billion. $SPCE #space #stocks.

@TheSanjivKapoor A really tough time for the airline industry thanks to the virus. Probably worse globally than the post 9/11 trauma. And this is on top of slowing economies, Gulf tensions, MAX grounding, engine problems, and other such challenges. Falling fuel prices alone cannot save the day 🙁

@winglets747 The Trent XWB-84 engine for the Airbus A350-900 is set to break even at the end of the year. For the A350-1000 engine, it will take longer – if at all. But this excludes the high-margin in-service support revenue.

@winglets747 737 MAX return to service may bring over-capacity, but hundreds of 737 NGs will soon reach their peak retirement window.
