Tweets of the day:

@andrewrtw The Amazing BA/AA Biz/First Class Sale from DUB that I took advantage of is back! I got DUB-LCY-JFK-LAX-HNL/KOA-HNL-LAX-LHR-DUB for £1080…

@AirlineFlyer Swiss bucking the trend of removing First Class from aircraft. Says it has no plans to remove First Class from international aircraft #PaxEx.

@AvWeekFlottau  Wolfgang Prock-Schauer, Air Berlin’s former CEO, leaves airline. No surprise, but second executive to depart in one week after CFO Hüttmeyer.

@CathalMacCoille More #AerLingus talks. BBC reports that Willie Walsh, ceo of #IAG, said: “We’ll have discussions in due course with the Irish government.”

@GavinDuffy We should all be so proud of these two great Irish men Ryanair continues to soar and AIG to hit  €2.2bn profit.

@jonostrower Bombardier’s CS300, direct competitor to the jetliner duopoly, now airborne on maiden flight. #CS300FF.

@jonostrower A very telling comment from Mike Arcamone on fight Boeing & Airbus: “We don’t fight, we just let the product speak for itself.” #CS300FF.

@KianiKress Old @airberlin CEO prock-Schauer throws in towel & quits cause he wants, or so. Only surprise that it went that fast after demotion.

@ODriscollTom Terms of Shannon Airport separation have enabled transfer of Cork routes to Shannon and have contributed to the decline in traffic.

@PEdmondAero This is terribly inconvenient news for all those politicians who’ve been confidently valuing @aerlingus LHR slot portfolio @ 23 x $60m! 2/2

@TodaySOR ‘The proposal that was put wasn’t good enough, if there’s another proposal we’ll look at it’ @aodhanoriordain on Aer Lingus.

@lucytobin Willie Walsh’s depressing verdict on airport expansion report: “nothing is going to come from what I think will be a fantastic report.”
