Tweets of the day:

@McWhirterAlex  Ryanair cottoned on to this years ago. Just shows how the legacy carriers are behind the times. #CAPASummit.

@CandiceOnTech .@finnair wants to make 20 euro per passengers with #ancillary sales #CAPASummit.

@PEdmondAero Doganis: e.g. @easyJet has 220 aircraft but outsources all its #MRO/engineering, with fresh competitive bids every 3-5 years #CAPASummit.

@PEdmondAero Roeska of @lufthansa: we can operate small aircraft profitably – some thin routes/regional aircraft among our most profitable #CAPASummit.

@PEdmondAero Roeska of @Lufthansa: in future, airline profits will mostly come from ancillary revenues rather than selling tickets. #CAPASummit.

@PEdmondAero Doganis: “@ryanair tells me that 96% of their ancillary revenue is pure profit.” #CAPASummit.

@tmongecuriel Travellers in smaller cities want direct connectivity and are willing to pay for it, says Martin Sedlacky of @air_baltic at #CAPASummit.
