Tweets of the day:

@AAPAirlines “We will leave consolidation in Asia to others who know the market better or who are braver.” IAG Willie Walsh.

@airwaysmagazine Hernandez: 1st A350-1000 at sub component level and on track for FAL in early 2016, 1st flight mid-2016, and EIS mid-2017.

@airwaysmagazine Evrard: #A330neo timeline: certification -900neo mid-2017 & -800neo 2Q 2018; EIS -900neo 4Q 2017 & -800neo 3Q 2018.

@AirwaysNews  Evrard: A350 exceeding expectations. @Qatarairways very pleased w/ high operations reliability. Vietnam, LATAM, & Finnnair in 2015.

@aspireaviation @Airbus A350-1000: Common Section 11 with -900; CFRP fuselage frame & bilge “optimisation” #InnovationDays.

@AvWeekFlottau  @Airbus A320 now certified by EASA for up to 195 seats, Leahy says. Airbus promotes aircraft at up to 189.

@ChrisKissane Parties which opposed sale of 75% of Aer Lingus now selling off remaining 25% against objections of party who sold the 75%… #irishpolitics.

@Flighteditor Going to “uncomfortable” 10-abreast, 17in seat is only way Boeing can compete with A350-1000’s economics on 777-9X, claims Rao.

@harrymcgee I wonder does Willie Walsh feel a smidgen of poetic justice with Aer Lingus, given how Bertie Ahern dumped him so hard the last time?.

@karelxwb Cathay Pacific’s first #A350 MSN29 has entered the final assembly line at Toulouse.

@philipnolan1 You can’t expect to control the future of any business as a minority 25% shareholder. #AerLingus.

@photoJDL  A350-1000 first flight expected mid-2016; EIS mid-2017. @Airbus.

@RAeSTimR A350-1000 benefitting from A350-900 experience, says Hernandez – high systems commonality.

@R_Wall Vietnam Airlines to get first Airbus A350 in June, Finnair and TAM next still this year.

@Tadhgodonovan Michael McNamara is exactly what is wrong with Irish politics. Disgusting. #AerLingus #sell #IAG
