Tweets of the day: 

@AirportWatch Sunday Times says Thomas Cook is seeking to offload its airline as part of a turnaround plan following the group’s near collapse in 2011.

@Colm_Keaveney Has one government coalition partner agreed sale of @AerLingus as concession to reverse planned cuts to one parent family’s supports.

@Colm_Keaveney Willie Walsh’s promises are as valid as a pr-election political promise. Isn’t that what they do before elections.

@colettebrowne Labour TD Pat Rabbitte comes out in favour of the sale of Aer Lingus to IAG in @sundaybusiness. Says he was persuaded by Willie Walsh.

@colettebrowne “Some vague patriotic attachment to the shamrock is a less than adequate response to the commercial realities now confronting the airline.”

@colettebrowne @sundaybusiness also says Aer Lingus staff and members of its Central Representative Council – an ICTU grouping – support the sale to IAG.

@EoinPoil re Aer Lingus if unions & positions are in favour of sale surely it should be and to hell with election,I trust Willie Walsh,good for all.

@SenThomasByrne  All the ducks in a row for sell off of last share of Aer Lingus, I still oppose.
