@Ai_Connects #Airlines need to focus on reducing the number of clicks required for a mobile payment #mcommerce #mobileshopping.
@GeorgeHatcher Due to tidal movements in the search zone and the abundance of rubbish in the ocean, #mh370 #debris may never be found.
@GeorgeHatcher #MH370 In the #search zone west of Perth, tidal movements are likely to stir debris in a circular pattern that does not reach land.
@GeorgeHatcher #MH370 Splash point=where plane impacted ocean. Unknown makes it difficult for ocean current experts to determine starting point.
@newbelfast Market for long-haul flights from Belfast International airport 2 Canada & US about 3 mill strong. M1 2 Dublin goes both ways.
@Shane_RossTD Paschal Donohue turns down my plea for deferred pensioners from DAA and Aer Lingus. Victims of bullying and deserted by Govt and union.
