Tweet Picks:

@CamWallace_NZ Lvl 3 @FlyAirNZ domestic highlights. Demand is tracking above our 2% forecast at about 3.5%. SD load factors above 80% . We have 24 sectors today vs 416  the same time LY. Seems like a long time ago that we served more than 1000 passengers a day. @andykirton.

@e_russell Trump’s plane tickets-for-cash scheme to aid airlines is very familiar to the one inked by his former adviser Carl Ichan with TWA in 1995 – one that is partially credited for TWA’s demise.

@MaxK_J “Lufthansa is like a crack-cocaine junkie looking for state aid. They’re already getting huge payroll support from government. What do they need the 10 billion for?” Michael O’Leary tells @SkyNews.

@winglets747 The major US airlines won’t even give a 5% bonus if customers take a voucher instead of refund. “One of the ways we can help the airlines is buying tickets at a very large discount, maybe 50% off or maybe more”.

@winglets747 Virgin Atlantic posted profits only three times last decade while British Airways soared to record profitability. Virgin accumulated £211m of losses last decade for a negative 0.1% operating margin. British Airways made £11 billion at a 10% margin.
