Tweets of the day:
@AirportWatch KLM CEO felt higher charges needed by Heathrow to pay for a new runway would mean it would not reduce the traffic going via Schiphol.
@declanganley Few in Ireland as in favour as I am, of sale of non essential gov’t business interests. We’re an island, we should keep Aer Lingus stake.
@simonjmcnamara More French ATC strikes starting next week – more chaos for passengers. Will @Roger_rousseau pick up the EU261 bill? Thought not.
@TheAviationMAN_ Aer Lingus and Icelandair seem have the best prices in summer to USA, around £200 cheaper than equivalent airlines.
