Tweets of the day:

@CAPA_Aviation Dublin Airport’s Vincent Harrison: Dublin to rank 6th in Europe for Nth America departures in 2015 @vinh04 #CAPASummit. 

@daraobriain Aer Lingus passengers arriving at Heathrow T2, blinking confusedly. What is this new shiny airport? Where’s our corrugated iron tube in T1?.

@e_russell Legacy @united flew a quarter of its hub-to-hub flts on widebodies in May 2010, when the CO merger was announced. Today only 1% of flts.

@e_russell That will change from likely 2016 when @united shifts 10 777-200s to domestic hub-to-hub flying and Hawaii.

@e_russell @united says the 777-300ER fits well with its 777 ops at #EWR and allows for upgauging some flights there. cc @maniacmiler.

@e_russell @united will use the domestic 777-200s for freq consolidation hub-to-hub and to Hawaii, says Compton.

@e_russell “It’s reasonable to expect going forward that we’ll borrow less money for new aircraft and pay cash upfront,” say @united’s CFO Rainey.

@EximBankUS  “Every time a 777 lands, 8,000 small businesses land with it” -Jim McNerney, @Boeing CEO #EXIM2015.

@ghimlay @SouthwestAir’s pilots union has joined @OpenFairSkies coalition.

@JohnLStrickland #IAG departure from AEA, alignment with Gulf carriers & now with LCC’s through #ELFAA shows it to be a 21st Century thought leader.

@ralphriegel Mighty impressed by Aer Lingus/Stobart support of heartbroken Buckley family. Nice to see companies with heart. #KarenBuckley.
