Tweets of the day:

@DublinAirport Our app has won the Ovum OTR ‘Innovation in Cloud Services’ award for delivering “a compelling mobile application”.

@e_russell Emirates, Etihad and Qatar have increased capacity by a quarter to the USA since AA, DL and UA made case in January, says Parker. #NPCLunch.

@ghimlay US airlines expected to carry 2.4m pax/day this summer – all-time high, says @AirlinesDotOrg.

@ghimlay “It’s the happiest I’ve been for a while.” – @AirlinesDotOrg chief economist John Heimlich on US carriers’ financial healthtOrg.

@ghimlay RT @macilree But international air transport is not covered by the WTO – US has resisted this extension.

@ghimlay Funny that Smisek said Gulf carriers’ finances were uncovered from “obscure jurisdictions” (Sing, Aust, India, Belgium, Ireland, Malta & UK).

@RunwayGirl United CEO says US legacies offer better product now than any time in history. // Not in economy class seating, Jeff. #PaxEx #NPCLunch.
