Tweets of the day:

@airlinewriter At @FedEx, CEO Fred Smith said today that US leadership on free trade is fading. $FDX opposes US #airlines in their spat with Gulf carriers.

@BHayesCurtin  Interesting. Deirdre Clune is backing IAG. She said IAG may be the only show in town when it comes to future of Aer Lingus… #corkairport.

@ghimlay @EtihadAirways will likely sell stake in Aer Lingus if IAG is successful in takeover bid, says CEO James Hogan #Aviation15

@ghimlay Norwegian plans to submit fresh application to DOT for UK-based subsidiary once that is up and running, its CEO told @Flightglobal today.

@ghimlay “Obviously they are trying to block competition.” – Norwegian CEO Bjorn Kjos, on the US-Gulf carriers subsidies battle.

@ghimlay  Hmmm one wonders what sort of reception Ryanair’s transatlantic plans will get from some US carriers…
