Tweet Picks:

@byerussell “For many pilots, having LAX, JFK, Chicago’s O’Hare International or some other giant airport in your logbook—the official record of your flying experience—is akin to a weekend golfer having a scorecard from Augusta National.” #avgeek.

@hharteveldt .@Delta CEO says blocked middle seats reflects “consumer confidence” about #travel. $DAL would rather keep empty middle seats & add flights than fly fuller planes & make pax uncomfortable/anxious #airline #Earnings.

@JohnLStrickland Most of @British_Airways recent 747 services have been to N. America, that market is shot to pieces for the time being as is the lucrative business travel market.  I was at BA when we introduced these fine 747-400’s, sad day #BA747#airlines #avgeek.

@SpaethFlies Only eight of 232 @Airbus  #A380 delivered are active currently according to  @cirium  July data published by @FlightGlobal : 2x @emirates , 1x @hifly_airline  and 5x  @CSAIRGlobal #avgeek.

@winglets747 World’s oldest flying A330 apparently being retired today as Cathay Dragon MSN12 B-HLJ leaves the fleet at 27 years old.  It also marks the start of aircraft reduction at Cathay Pacific group.
