Tweets of the day:
@e_russell The USA and Ukraine have signed an open skies agreement. Ukraine International Airlines is only carrier flying between the countries.
@Citiflyer With the EI deal now done, Willie Walsh must surely go down as one of the best leaders in aviation. Now buy Finnair!.
@ghimlay Air France-KLM has supported the US3 in Gulf subsidies battle (no surprises there).
@JohnWMidgley @Ryanair gets a shoutout as an enabler for European startups at @GlobaliForum/@Allied4Startups/@tech_eu Brussels event.
@mark_scourse So IAG will expand to include Iberia, Vueling, Aer Lingus… who’s next? SAS, Finnair?.
@paudieaudi Couldn’t tweet last week. Ryanair plane waited for passengers in Kerry for 20 minutes because there was a car accident. Only in Ireland.
