Tweet Picks:

@CamWallace_NZ Solid day on the @FlyAirNZ network today. Good load factors, a larger number of passengers and the service flow is generally working efficiently. A couple of things to sort out but generally good stuff. @andykirton.

@e_russell New shortest domestic flight in the U.S.? Vail-Aspen. American blocks the 29 mile route at 35min on a CRJ700. H/t @jasonblevins.

@valerieesilvaa “During this time and while we prepare to get back to normal, it will be very important to have a passenger differentiation strategy, especially w/ the global recession we are being told to expect.” —

@DublinAirport’s Jan Richards at #FTEAPEXWebinars @theAPEXassoc @FutureTravelX.

@winglets747 United’s Scott Kirby: “The real issue for us about demand, however, is going to be that people feel safe and have some freedom to travel. Disney World needs to be open.” Shanghai Disney: Reopens, tickets sell out for weeks.

@winglets747 United Airlines wants to carry more medical supplies by having one of its Hong Kong cargo flights continue to Singapore. But Anchorage wants United to be patriotic and place the stopover in Anchorage, not Hong Kong.
