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.
