Tweets of the day:

@e_russell @flyvolaris will use operating leases + SLBs for its 7 deliveries in 2015, says CFO Suarez. 2 A321s from ALC, and 5 A320s from HKAC + SMBC.

@e_russell “I consider [an aircraft] a donkey that I take out 15 hours a day and it has to be absolutely reliable,” says @flyvolaris CEO Beltranena.

@ODriscollTom @CorkAirport Best of luck to the Marketing Team at Cork Airport with their renewed efforts to attract services from the U.S. and Canada.

@winglets747  Boeing’s careful statement about US-Gulf carrier row says it “supports a commercial-aviation industry based on open and fair competition”.

@winglets747 Cathay Pacific on Saturday will retire four aircraft: three 747-400s (B-HUG/HOR/HKU) and its first of 11 A340-300s. #4engines4retirements.

@winglets747 Udvar-Hazy about passengers & new aircraft: “The consumer doesn’t want to pay another dollar for that new technology, they don’t care”.

@ZakenreisMag Really, #Gatwick? Only 45 min. of free wifi? Paid phone charging?! You’ve got more connectivity problems than just a 2nd runway.
