Tweets of the day:
@AerLingus @milseogmhilis Darragh, we will be unable to reply in Chinese. Apologies.
@conormcmahon #JFK airport is building an animal terminal called the Ark.
@joesentme Why did IAG buy Aer Lingus? Insider says minimum 20-year wait for more Heathrow space will essentially make Dublin “London’s third airport”.
@Kev_Andrew Aer Lingus rolling out a business product on short haul would be big news, a major change in direction. Unsure of the ‘Aer Space’ name.
@ShannonAirport Shannon is the only airport on @wildatlanticway with a direct connection to @united hubs in Newark and Chicago #meetonthewaw.
@winglets747 Air France says in Los Echos only 50% of long-haul routes are profitable. Target is 80%(!) but without union compromises, route reduction.
@winglets747 United Airlines CEO Jeff Smisek says the A380 is “a product for state-subsidised airlines, or airlines that have it and wish they didn’t”.
