Tweets of the day:

@coolyourjets Really disgusted with @FineGael & @labour with their short sighted selfish motives for reelection not allowing an Aer Lingus sale to IAG….

@gavreilly SIPTU president Jack O’Connor now up. He’s met Willie Walsh and Stephen Kavanagh; he says there isn’t enough talk of short haul area. #lp15.

@KianiKress They never fail to surprise: @Ryanair to present Customer Charter &  2015 Always Getting Better Customer Initiatives tomorrow.

@starflyergold Lest we forget: Today 1000 days ago Berlin’s new airport BER was supposed to open.

@winglets747 Air Serbia, partially owned by Etihad, strongly notes profit was “audited by KPMG”.

@winglets747 Tim Clark: US carriers ignored globalization. “When the world started to knit together…where were the American carriers then?”.

@winglets747 Often the leader, this time Emirates follows Qatar Airways with service to Bali. Daily from 3 June. (Via @arun4)

@winglets747  Lee Moak makes bold claim Gulf carriers “aren’t adding passengers” but rather “stealing”. Let’s see his numbers.
