Tweets of the day:

@GlennFarley 777  line sold out for 2016, half sold for 2017 and has substantial orders in 2018, as Boeing attempts to bridge production gap to 777X.

@GlennFarley  Boeing CEO Jim McNerney “We’re increasingly confident” in the bridge to 777X.

@GlennFarley Boeing’s McNerney- half of airliner sales tied to replacement market driven by technology. Half by route expansion.

@GlennFarley  Boeing talking about supply chain issues on 787. Think deliveries will be caught up by end of the year. Will hit 12 787/mo in 2016.

@GlennFarley Boeing CFO Greg Smith expects 787 to be cash positive for 2015.

@GlennFarley Costs of 787s declining up to 30%.

@jimdalytd Very constructive meeting with DAA today re @CorkAirport. Confirmed Debt not an issue – it lies on the books of DAA not with Cork Airport.

@jimdalytd €0 landing charges available year 1 for any new route @CorkAirport. Landing charges rise to 8.60 year 6 – 18% cheaper than Dublin. #flycork.

@jimdalytd @CorkAirport is Ireland’s 2nd busiest airport with 42 scheduled flights per week. Let’s start talking up our airport and using it. #flycork.

@newbelfast Of course best way 2 compete with Dublin airport is cheaper flights & more destinations. A challenge with APD but if owners are serious….

@newbelfast Good 2c @BelfastAirport call 4 air passenger duty removal 2 boost economy But also need 2 compete wth Dublin with no setdown fee & free wifi.

@newbelfast Fair point and I have raised with US authorities, they are up for pre-clearance if we can increase numbers.
