Tweets of the day:

@ghimlay Calling US airlines: Interjet wants a US partner, must be full-service or hybrid. Maybe @jetblue?.

@Qantas Today our 10th reconfigured #A330 enters service. #Didyouknow over 2km of wiring is installed on each aircraft as part of modification!.

@ShannonAirport What a busy Bank Holiday we had. We catered to more than 40,000 passengers, our busiest weekend in 5 years! #flyshannon.

@WestonAviation Fantastic welcome to @CorkAirport by so many! Many thanks to all for your warm welcome. Details of vacancies to be announced shortly.

@winglets747 China Southern will become one of a handful of carriers serving all inhabited continents – but at what cost?.

@winglets747 Emirates on 14 July retired A6-EMF, its last 777-200 (non LR) to Arizona. The aircraft flew enough to go to the moon and back 80 times.

@winglets747 Qantas Group CEO Alan Joyce at #CAPAsummit says Jetstar HK rejection is “unjustified”.
