Tweets of the day:

@e_russell My question on the IAG-Aer Lingus deal – what slot divestitures will be required for the DUB-LHR route? @Oliver__Clark.

@e_russell Domestic airfares were down 1.9% in the US in 1H15, reports @AirlinesDotOrg.

@e_russell US airlines net margin surpassed the S&P 500 in the 1H15, achieving 11.2%, reports @AirlinesDotOrg.

@GBHelicopters @WestonAviation @CorkAirport When are you operational from Cork? Good to know you guys are there! Hopefully see you soon!.

@RedFMNews @CorkAirport is confident that it will return to growth from October following the announcement of several new routes in recent weeks.
