Tweets of the day:

‏@AirFlottau “It is completely the wrong way.” IAG’s Willie Walsh on anti-Gulf carrier initiatives in Europe. “I compete profitably with them.”

@AirFlottau IAG’s Walsh on NAI: EU/U.S. open skies a “failure.” It is “tragic” NAI is not allowed to operate, while complying with “every single rule.”

@AirFlottau “Our profitability would probably be higher with less than five hubs, at least in the short term.” Lufthansa Group CEO Carsten Spohr.

@Lebeaucarnews NEW: @TSA says it found a record 2,653 firearms in carry-on bags in 2015. That’s 20% higher than previous record set in 2014.

@Mark_J_Henry  CEOs of @TourismIreland and @NITouristBoard are presenting to @CommonsNIAC committee on the impact of the UK tax regime on tourism to NI.

@USEmbassyDublin Ireland is ranked in the top 20 international markets for visitation to the USA #HWS16.
