Tweets of the day:

@AirportWatch  Willie Walsh:”Airlines & consumers are looking for lower costs when it comes to flying but airports only seem to be looking at higher costs”

@AirportWatch BA alone now has 51% of the landing slots at Heathrow, and the enlarged IAG will soon have 56% of the slots, including Iberia and Vueling.

‏@AirportWatch Willie Walsh says even if Heathrow got its 3rd runway it would be lagging behind Dubai as a global hub by the time it is built.

@e_russell IAG is “actively considering” moving @AerLingus into @united’s former gates in T7 at #JFK, if acquisition approved, reports @Oliver__Clark.

 @GwynTopham IAG’s Willie Walsh says Airports Commission “glossed over” financing of Heathrow third runway and BA won’t pay “excessive, outrageous” cost
