Tweets of the day:

@AirlineFlyer Delta isn’t the only airline that wants to fly its jets forever. British Airways wants to extend its 777 life to 30 years.

@andywesthead Fans traveling from Denmark and Germany for this tour blows my mind. Thank you for your support and @Ryanair for their cheap flights.

@e_russell  @Delta CEO Anderson jokes he was wrong that 777s cost $10m – DL just signed an LOI for one for $7.7m.

@Mattonews #Qantas is forecasting pretax profit of $875m to $925m for first half of 2015-16 due to cost cutting, slump in oil prices and revenue growth.

@poloconghaile #Euro2016Draw @AerLingus flies direct from Dublin to Bordeaux. One-way fares on June 17 currently €202.99.

@winglets747 “I don’t think we’re going to get the French to let us run their fleet,” Richard Anderson says of AF. But Aeromexico and Gol welcome DL.

@winglets747 Virgin Atlantic may be consolidating under Delta’s watch, but Delta didn’t buy Aeromexico “to shrink it”, Delta says.
