Tweets of the day:

@LuxuryTravelled  Vueling to provide UK growth ‘under IAG’ umbrella. Will also have more legroom in ‘business class’ rows 1-4 in curtained cabin.

@LuxuryTravelled IAG will be installing wifi on LH fleet – with new A330’s, A350’s and 787-10’s being delivered with it.

@LuxuryTravelled  10% more seats available Long Haul from Gatwick on the 777’s – reduction in Club.

@LuxuryTravelled  I wonder if a BA with Alex Cruz in charge will see more collaboration with Vueling – esp at LCC strongholds like Gatwick…?.

@TodayFMNews  The Egytian Ambassador says she is concerned at the government decision to stop Irish airlines operating to/from Sharm el-Sheikh.

@winglets747 Ryanair’s margin for most recent quarter (41%) was more than double the highest margin amongst Europe’s legacy airline groups (IAG, 18.5%).
