Tweets of the day:

@Hol_NetAffinity Ryanair – 95% of their business is booked direct, the strength of the brand plays in their favour #Phocuswright @Phocuswright.

@julianoneill What the new Dublin figures show is that it is taking growth from 2 main NI airports.

@keishibata Kenny Jacobs, Ryanair “Skyscanner and KAYAK are going to be squeezed by Google and airlines.” #Phocuswright Europe #WebInTravel #Travel_jp.

@Lebeaucarnews  If airlines are limiting flights to boost profits, why are they increasing the availability of frequent flyer reward seats? @SquawkCNBC.

@Mark_J_Henry #Facebook is big part of #Ryanair plans for 2015 – social sharing will be integrated into the booking process: @Kenny_Jacobs #Phocuswright.

@Mark_J_Henry Half #ryanair’s growth will be to/from primary airports in the years ahead, @Kenny_Jacobs of @Ryanair tells #Phocuswright.

@Mark_J_Henry Heathrow airport offers 55 destinations but @STN_Airport offers 170 so it’s transatlantic hub waiting to happen: @Kenny_Jacobs #Phocuswright.

@NiallGibbons  Well done @flybe who have added additional frequency on the Cardiff to @DublinAirport and @CorkAirport routes. An extra 944 weekly seats.

@Oliver__Clark  TUI to begin rebranding of Thomson to http://TUI.com  “immediately” says joint CEO Friedrich Joussen.

@Phocuswright Business class coming to Ryanair? Kenny Jacobs says “not yet”, so it must be just a matter of time. #phocuswright.

@Phocuswright  Connections with international carriers are a possibility but alliances are not. Jacobs, Ryanair #phocuswright.

@Phocuswright We need discipline in 1. costs and 2. operational efficiency: Kenny Jacobs, Ryanair #phocuswright.

@R_Wall  Singapore Airlines sees its first Airbus A350 entering service in early 2016; Three A350s due by the end of March ’16, says @SingaporeAir.

@thepersuaders Kenny Jacobs @Ryanair #travelintermediaries should be concerned about what Google are doing…Their flightsearch facility works for Ryanair.

@thepersuaders Kenny Jacobs @Ryanair increased load factors meant additional 12 passengers per flight.

@thepersuaders Because flight is first on decision process, Ryanair can move to be more a travelbusiness ..beyond ancillary services.

@WebInTravel We want to be the Amazon of travel, we like their relentless use of data and focus on conversions, Kenny Jacobs @Ryanair #Phocuswright.

@WebInTravel We will integrate Facebook and other social points in the booking flow, Kenny Jacobs @Ryanair #Phocuswright.
