Tweets of the day:

@emirates Filmed in 95 locations across all 7 continents, @AirplanesMovie is a visual treat for #avgeeks.

@EoinBearla @simoncoveney headline reflects our conversation accurately & 5th paragraph says ‘government is working hard to help drive growth at airport.

@joesentme Anybody writing about a Delta “hub” in Shangai really shud go into PR so they won’t look idiotic while parrotting meaningless CEO platitudes.

@michaelrmulcahy Crazy that gov hadn’t @CorkAirport in €315bn Juncker fund. Still time  @DeirdreCluneMEP @deshocks @kennethnoflynn .

@simoncoveney @irishexaminer @EoinBearla misleading headline, govt is very focused on supported growth at Cork Airport.

@simoncoveney @EoinBearla ur right, the article is very fair but I think the headline suggests we r doing nothing, as reflected in editorial.
