Tweets of the day:
@AviationWeek Facing a pilot shortage, Republic Airways says it cannot fly the schedule it promised partners.
@hurrymurray Other airlines moan, winge, tinker around the edges.. look for a holy grail .. Michael O’Leary just got on with the job.
@hurrymurray … and Michael O’Leary has never been recognised by the (UK) travel industry for being the biggest travel trailblazer, ever …
@hurrymurray Odd. @Ryanair is the world’s largest international carrier. Yet not even a mention in any travel awards. Strange that, eh? Readers?
@thewholeworldis We meet again @Ryanair! When Michael O’Leary realises travel bloggers are the future he should call us first!
@9VSKA 4x 388 + 2x 77W dailies between DXB and BKK… utter madness!
