Tweets of the day:

@AngusM1966 Michael O’Leary on good form in Rome this morning — tells reporters Gulf airlines not rich enough to buy @Ryanair.

@e_russell “Latin is still rough, especially Brazil. There’s no signs of anything getting better,” says @AmericanAir CEO Kerr.

@ghimlay @AlaskaAir will phase out its five 737-400Cs as part of overall 737-400 retirement, going to operate just pure 737-700 Freighters.

@ghimlay @AlaskaAir sees competitive capacity in SEA abating in Q3/Q4, but will rise a bit again in Q1 2016 thanks to @SouthwestAir and @Delta.

@ghimlay @SpiritAirlines CEO says airline competes with Applebee’s and TGIFridays to hire people to be flight attendants, not other airlines.

@ghimlay @SpiritAirlines CEO Ben Baldanza: “The possibility of further consolidation is not unrealistic down the road.”

@ghimlay @WestJet says it’s committed to low-cost model despite business class-like frills on Plus product.

@ToMartha “Brands moving up the list include National Express, EasyJet, Thomson, Ryanair, Expedia, Lastminute and BA” #Travel.
