Tweets of the day:

@anglonavia  It’s now only British, Norwegian & Irish airlines flying direct from London to Sweden’s 2nd city of Gothenburg. 

@DublinAirport Boston, New York & Chicago are the three busiest transfer routes from @DublinAirport.

@julianoneill  BA and @AerLingus boss Willie Walsh backs Stormont setting up a fund to attract new air routes: “Without question it will be an advantage.”

@Steph_Beasley Airlines in charge of air traffic control would equal fox in control of the chicken coup, says @NBAA. #AIRRAct #ATCprivatization.

@starflyergold Oporto Mayor threatens TAP with boycott (maybe Ryanair can fill the void, would that be better for the major?).

@tohmavis Came across Willie Walsh’s famous quote: “A reasonable man gets nowhere in negotiations”. Food for thought.
