Tweets of the day:

@AirlineFlyer Cabin investment, huh? I’m listening, @AerLingus! RT @karelxwb: Aer Lingus evaluates #A321neoLR as 757 replacement.

@askeamonn Anyone listen to incoming Aer Lingus CEO aspirant being interview by Ivan this am @BreakfastNT who picks these guys #vinb politics ov’r all?.

@BillyKelleherTD So Pat Rabbitte wants to sell Aer Lingus.always believed he was a Fine Gael TD who just happens to be in labour. This confirms my suspicion.

@CorkChamber Longer Timeframe and Greater Detail Needed On IAG’s proposal for Aer Lingus says Conor Healy in press release issued this evening.

@fiannafailparty  Govt must firmly rule out sale of Aer Lingus now that Transport Minister has recognised its strategic importance. 

@MrStevePatten Is it just me that thinks Irish Government should sell Aer Lingus to Michael O’Leary ??? @ryanair  #aerlingus @ireland.

@PEdmondAero  Outgoing @aerlingus CEO: “Standalone strategy v successful & could continue for couple more years, but v high risk”.

@Ragin_Spice I am EMBARR at how backwards our government is. The IAG bid is an excellent opportunity for Aer Lingus.

@Ragin_Spice Transport minister asking for guarantees for growth at ORK and SNN before agreeing to IAG bid? He does realise EI is not a charity?.
