Tweets of the day: 

@Flighteditor Hogan: The only major airline group not against us is Willie Walsh’s IAG. He just accepts competition and gets on with it.

@Flighteditor Hogan: we had no legacy airport, no legacy aircraft and no legacy business model.

@Flighteditor Hogan: People lump Gulf airlines together, but unlike US carriers we speak for ourselves. My biggest competitor is Emirates, then Qatar.

@Mark_J_Henry Air capacity into Ireland this summer will be at all-time high from EU, North America & further: Siobhan MacManamy of @TourismIreland #AIPCO.

@Oliver__Clark Aer Lingus warns “immediate” share price fall and “additional restructuring measures” possible if IAG takeover fails.

@ODriscollTom Cork Airport could  benefit from the introduction of a regional air connectivity fund if the scheme launched in the U.K.was replicated here.

@TodayFMNews Transport Minister: Donald Trump is entitled to his opinion on Aer Lingus (he warns against the selling of the states sharehold).
