Tweets of the day:

@AirportWatch  Willie Walsh, CEO of IAG, considers £2 billion a foolish price for London City Airport. BA will not pay higher charges needed to recoup cost.

@SecAF23 Introducing the 1st rendering of the #B21! Until now we’ve known it as the LRS-B.

@tonyfernandes Reading all the stuff on TATA and Airasia. Quite crazy 5 20 hasn’t been solved. Are owners of indian airlines living in india. Naresh ? NRI.

@tonyfernandes Indians need more Tourism. More jobs. Only country in the world with a 5 20 rule. Malaysia has foreign airlines operating here. No issue.

@tonyfernandes People of india your voice needs to be heard more. For to long airlines have been controlled by a few. Mostly NRI. Competition  is needed.

@winglets747 35% of Australian credit card spend is on a card co-branded with the Qantas Frequent Flyer programme.
