Tweets of the day:

@AerLingus Flying low over College Green in a 737, coming from #italia90 with the Boys in Green onboard. Unforgettable. #25yearson 🇮🇪️️

@EoinBearla Mayor also urges people to make a conscious decision to use @CorkAirport more, to help secure its future #corkcc.

@FlyFromCORK UK airline @flybe to continue their @CorkAirport – @Cardiff_Airport service throughout the Winter season with flights operating on Tue & Fri.

@JetwayMJ @Saab & @PACAVI_Group in partnership to complete @Airbus A320/321 passenger-to-freighter conversions #avgeek.

@LovinDublin Even low fares doesn’t beat this @Ryanair . @AerLingus roll out crisp sambo packs. Game on.

@PEdmondAero Boeing’s under pressure on B777 production rates – maybe it’s time for @ryanair to do that long-haul fleet deal?.

@tonyfernandes After 14 years of in malaysia aviation at last I see the light of a rational aviation industry. Where all players can make money.

@tonyfernandes At last we can be compared in terms of financials terms with Ryanair and easyjet.  Big plus for airasia and Airasia x.

@tonyfernandes Now we just need Malaysian airports to get a win win scenario and avaition will fly which will add loads to malaysia. Economy.
