Tweets of the day:

@ATWMoores “If anyone didn’t have a good summer, they need to do some restructuring,” @vueling CEO Alex Cruz #wlcac.

@ATWMoores Loyalty rewards are the cherry on the icing on the cake. The cake is low costs and the icing is the network @Ryanair’s @Kenny_Jacobs  #wlcac.

@ATWMoores Connectivity between Ryanair and long-haul operators is “a very interesting product that is waiting to happen” @Ryanair Kenny Jacobs #wlcac.

@ATWMoores “The only three airports we don’t see ourselves operating at are Heathrow, Charles de Gaulle and Frankfurt,” Ryanair’s Kenny Jacobs #wlcac.

@ATWMoores Ryanair’s Always Getting Better programme will not end; it’s become an ethos: @Ryanair’s @Kenny_Jacobs #wlcac.

@ATWMoores Size of A321s will make a “big difference” to @wizzair “I would love most of my airplanes to be A321 neos,” CEO Jozsef Varadi.

@DefenceHQ Also pleased to announce that @RoyalAirForce A400M has reached its in service date, with 7 aircraft now delivered .

@designerjet Jacobs says that Frequent Flyer type is fading, replaced by younger demographic expecting value and transactional benefits. #WLCAC.

@glenvillemorris Kenny Jacobs CMO at #Ryanair #WLCAC – “we are now moving into more primary airports, every airport is a target except LHR, FRA and CDG” wow!.

@JohnLStrickland #WLCAC15 Alex Cruz #Vueling no group network planning in #IAG each #airline focused on own costs & max return on capital.

@JohnLStrickland Not a surprise. The most successful #airlines focus on 4 letter word: COST. #ryanair #wizzair #vueling #WLCAC15.

@keynick Watch out Germany! Ryanair’s 5% market share is something they’re looking to improve – Kenny Jacobs, Ryanair CMO #WLCAC15.

@LARA_Editor “The @Airbus A321neo – 239 seats, so a game changer on the costs we can achieve,” says @wizzair CEO Varadi. #WLCAC.
