Tweets of the day:

@LutherTurmelle Butler: “@AerLingus is the fastest growing airline in the trans-Atlantic Corridor over the last five years.”

@LutherTurmelle Butler: @AerLingus connections via BDL will be quicker for Ct. residents than flying to #Ireland out of Boston or NYC area airports.

@LutherTurmelle Keith Butler, chief commercial officer at Aer Lingus, says airline industry remain “volatile” despite record profits for some carriers.

@LutherTurmelle Bradley International is @AerLingus 10th U.S. destination, Butler says.

@LutherTurmelle Butler: Events of 9/11 forced @AerLingus to rework business model. What was once an airline owned by Irish government is now privately held.

@LutherTurmelle Butler: “Will the boom-bust cycle (in airline industry) continue and are we at the top of the curve.”

@paigesellis Air Canada CEO: Letter of Intent for CSeries will turn into something more firm within a few weeks. @BNN.
